Surfers Paradise Backpackers Resort
Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Paid a little extra to get a double room because we read that it was a bit of a party hostel. It was nice to have our own space with kitchen and living area. The kitchen was a bit grubby and so was our room but it was grand. When we took our sheets off the bed to check out, the mattress looked like a massive sponge. Staff were friendly and helpful. Good courtyard for games and there's a bar. It's close to the beach but I think everywhere in surfers is close to the beach. It is a long long walk into the main town area but will be handy trip in when the tram opens.

Stayed: May 2014, travelled as a couple

From Surfers Paradise Transit Center it is about 20 minutes walk, but hostel offers a ride with a small bus for free at day time. From backpackers Lounge in Transit center they will make a call for you. This bus also goes once in a hour from hostel to Transit center at daytime. Beach is 3 minutes walk from the hostel. Hostel has a bar with cheap drinks. Rooms are clean but little small. Wifi works only in front of The reception. Staff are nice and friendly!

You pay a little more but it is worth it. Only was going to stay a couple of nights but was having such a good time that I ended up staying a week. Very good facilities and rooms and staff very nice. Recommended.

After a terrible experience at a previous backpackers in Surfers, it was a breath of fresh air to be staying somewhere where everyone was social and the staff made an effort with you! After originally only planning to stay the one night, we extended it more and more each day! The rooms were the best id seen out of the hostels we'd stayed in and were cleaned daily. The social area was good and the layout made everyone talk to each other. The staff were all friendly and wanted everyone to be involved with activities such as volleyball matches each evening! With a pool, basketball net, tennis court, ping pong table and a film room, the hostel had great facilities! Although the location was a bit far out of town, the shuttle ran every hour, including a late run into town when there was organised nights outs and it was only a short walk to the beach. It also made us venture towards Broadbeach which we probably wouldn't have done otherwise! Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a sick place to stay in surfers!

Stayed here for nearly a week and had a great time! I was happy to find the room was cleaned daily. The staff were nice and friendly, location was fine as the beach was around the corner and the bus went every hour into town. Went out on the big night out and that was really fun for a laugh. The pool was nice to cool down in the day and the volleyball in the afternoon was fun!

Will definitely visit again in the future!

Room was average, always quite hot and my bed was painfully squeaky.

I was impressed that the hostel had free use of the laundry machine and free body board hire.

Free wifi was good, but also creates a line up of anti social backpackers sat outside reception staring at their devices all day.

Location was ok, close to a really nice beach, but not so close to the central city area. This isn't too bad as they offer a free shuttle bus.

Swimming pool is nice but very small, and it's good that they have a basketball/volleyball court.
