Ok so in terms of layout, this hostel ranks pretty high compared to all the others I have stayed at. It says you share an 8 bed dorm but it doesn't really give it justice because you actually have a kinda apartment area with your own kitchen and bathroom shared with only 8 people and then two bedrooms, so you are actually only sharing a room with 4 other people! Really great if you are exhausted from driving up the east coast in a few days! The rooms do get extremely hot though, just a warning! And the fans are pretty pathetic, but at least it makes you get up early to enjoy Surfers Paradise (which isn't paradise by the way) if that's the type of thing you're into. We were just happy to get up early so we could get out of the place to be honest. Not the hostel, SP.
They have a lovely pool here, a pool table and some great common areas. They are quite focused on the party aspect, playing fun drinking games etc but it is situated in Surfers Paradise so I don't know how any of the hostels can't be focused on the arty aspect as it seems like the way of life out there.
Most of the staff are really friendly and lovely. And they also have meet and greets most evenings where they have a Barbie or get pizza in etc which is nice to be a part of.
Anyway, the main thing is the great layout and nice pool (both table and swimming varieties).
