Stayed here for only one night but is such a cool chilled out hostel that is really cheap. Stayed in a 20 bed dorm I thought might be a little cramped but was huge and spacious. The bar areas really nice too with very cheap drinks and free pool and good friendly atmosphere.

With a big open common area and a nice pool this place befits it's title. The rooms are very basic but that's to be expected for the low price. The location is great with only 5 minutes to the central beach of Surfers Paradise. All in all it's a pretty cool place to stay and good for meeting people.

Good location and the outdoor area is good but the rooms were pretty filthy and let the whole place down. We shared one toilet and shower (in the same room so couldn't be used at the same time) between 14 people across two dorms. This shower room was stinky and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a year. The...

Although this hostel has a great location and all of the facilities needed to make it a great place it is just too dirty to get anything better than 2/5. This is the most unclean hostel I have seen in 3 weeks of travel through the east coast and in NZ. It is not that there was not staff their...

Stayed three nights at BIP. Enjoyed the enthusiastic staff. They were knowledgable about the local area. Was lovely to have have ensuite bathrooms. However, would be handy to have extra showers and more public toilets. Kitchen was pretty great. Maybe we can have one or two more sharp knives. Cruisy atmosphere and chill environment ! Thank you
