Reviewed yesterday NEW

This was the worst hostel I've ever been to. No air conditioning, no lockers, very dirty,.. had to sleep in the hallway of a little apartment and share one toilet + bathroom with 8 people. Just try to avoid that

Had a twin room which was like a mini oven. Our fan was broken , staff gave us another one but still so hot. Not sure why aircon isn't included in the price we payed. People slept on the balcony because it was so hot. Showers were dirty and kitchen didn't have any tea towels or washing up liquid. I...

- Staff come into your room without knocking and will leave your door unlocked from room checks even if you're not in the hostel. - Shower had mould and urine on bathroom walls. - Rooms are unbearably hot some guests actually slept outside on the sofas. - Kitchen did not have enough bowls and no T-Towels to dry washing up...

I did not enjoy my stay here. The room was tiny and absolutely boiling. The two fans we were given just blew hot air around the room. The bathroom was disgusting, the shower curtain was rank and was stuck together at the bottom by what I can only assume was years of peoples shampoo and skin stuck together. The kitchen...

The place is run down and dirty and our door in our dorm didn't even shut properly let alone lock so was banging through the night. The staff are friendly enough and organise plenty of social activities but they are up late so make noise which kept us awake.

The staff were fantastic, the room however was not. Had the private room with ensuite. Hardly any of the lights worked in our room making it incredibly hard to see. Did not seem like they had cleaned up after previous guests. Huge hole in kitchen ceiling which leaked when it rained. Spotted a few cockroaches, so that was lovely. Overarall...

The bathroom was rank because there was no ventilation. The shower curtain was so mouldy it was stuck together, pretty much useless. The room was so hot and far too small for the 4 of us who were squeezed into it. No air con!!! The staff weren't the most charming men either. They put a lot of pressure on us...

Great little hostel in the heart of Surfers Paradise close to all the action. Real friendly team of backpackers working there, easy to meet people. Great vibes and atmosphere. My room was like a flat, had a living room kitchen and bathroom which was great so homely. Will be back!

Good backpackers hostel. Hostels are what they are. You can only judge them on location and staff. Both were excellent. Located near the bus station and the staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Would stay again. Eimear at reception was great.
