We are a couple and stayed in a double private room with shared bathroom for five nights, down the road a little bit from the reception.

Our room smelt horrible and needed a good clean, we did tell someone about the smell and they said they would tell their boss but we heard nothing more. The kitchen and seating area smelt of stale smoke, and wasn't a great place to spend any time. Also it wasn't clean, we wanted to use the oven for tea one night and the only tray was full of burnt food and fat, it was really gross.

I know that surfers paradise is a party place and I expected noise but it started to get beyond a joke, people shouting and having arguments at 3 in the morning, and nothing done to stop it happening even though there is a sign about no noise after 10pm I think, but there was no one around to stop it.

Its wasn't cheap for us to stay here and it was a massive disappointment, there must be better places to stay! The only thing it didn't let us down on was location.

Stopped off here while doing an east coast trip, decent hostel with a good pool. They seemed to doing different events different nights of the week which was good. Nice and chilled unlike the rest of surfers. Would recommend.

Top staff, top hostel!
By far the best hostel I've stayed in, in the whole of Australia!
Was only meant to stay a week ended up being there for 5 (enough said)
Became a home away from home, and a family! Worked there for 4 weeks and cant explain how great it is there! Highly recommend staying here if you go to surfers, you will not regret it!

This place was a nice and cheap place. The staff was very nice and helpful, and the they always had some party or other social stuff going on.
The wifi sucked though, so bad that it was kinda unuseable, but the rest was great! Clean, cheap rooms and lovely people :-D

Great location, only a 5 minute walk to the main street. Friendly staff and plenty going on around the hostel (BBQ's etc). Clean rooms, with an adequate kitchen. However, Internet could only be used in the public area by reception which was a bit annoying but other than that a good place to stay!

I only stayed here for one night. But really enjoyed it. The staff were so friendly, and welcoming, also helped carry my luggage which was a nice gesture. As well as, got picked up and dropped off at the coach station by the hostel. Had the $5 all you can eat BBQ, which was so yummy! And then went out on the organised night out, which meant free entry, first drink free, then cheap drinks. There was such a great atmosphere in the hostel, so had a great stay! However, the rooms were very small. But, the room I had (near the roof terrace), opened up to a social area, and kitchen which was shared with two other rooms. There was only one shower though and two toilets. So had to wait to take a shower, specially when everyone was going out. Also, there was free WiFi, massive bonus! But, could be slow at times. The hostel is close to the city centre and beach, only about a 15 min walk! I would definitely recommend this hostel!
