Can't say I had a bad experience here. We did manage to get a great deal where we booked 3 nights and got 3 for free. This helped a hell of a lot as we were short on money. It's quite quiet throughout the day except for the same music being repeated all day...every day. There doesn't seem to be much else going on, but you can make your own entertainment with use of the tennis/volleyball/basketball court, swimming pool and t.v room. The sauna is unusable and doesn't look like it's been in use for sometime.They also have a pool table but you have to pay for that. The wi-fi is free...however it's only available till 10pm which is a bit annoying. They also have a bar onsite which you can buy bottles from, but this is only open 5pm - 10pm and you are not allowed to consume your own alcohol onsite, so if you want to drink through the day I guess you better stock up or either go to a bar down the road. The location isn't the best, being a 20 - 30 minute walk each way to the busy parts of the town. However, it is only about 5 minutes to the beach front which is handy. The rooms are a decent size, with most having 5 beds and it was pretty clean throughout, maybe except for the curtains which were a bit mouldy. It was ok here, not 5* but you can't grumble at the price. If you are going to stay here make sure you phone them to ask for special deals they might have on because they don't do specials through online bookings.

We stayed in the twin room (included bathroom, kitchen and lounge room with TV). The unit was cheap and very clean environment quiet but social in outdoor common areas. The staff we absolutely brilliant helping with transport advise and running a shuttle into the town centre. The location is a bit out of town but close to the beach and will be perfect when tram line commences. Don't be put off by this being a backpackers the twin rooms are accommodating for young and old.

Room Tip: Twin rooms have bathroom, lounge room and kitchen included

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.

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.
