Surfers Paradise YHA at Main Beach
Reviewed 7 May 2010

Stayed at YHA Surfers Paradise on 21 April to 24 April. Can't forget Ms Tamaran's (YHA staff) smilling face and warm welcome, A small backpacker hostel as compared with others YHA hostels, but it has everything you need, for sure you will enjoy the stay.

This was the third YHA we stayed in during our visit to Oz and we were greeted by a courtesy bus to pick us up from the greyhound stop. If we hadn't been we certainly wouldn't have gone there because it is so far out of town. This makes it not an ideal choice unless you prefer the marina environment. As for the YHA itself, the staff are helpful and the site is very secure. The rooms are a bit tight but well cleaned. The shower area is strangely sited near the kitchen end of the hostel and the kithcen gets rather busy and congested.

Great stay whilst in Surfers Paradise. Everything about this place was laid back right down to their friendly staff. Nightly outings to the clubs, thats if you can be bothered to leave their own pub on the waterfront. Wish I was back there now!

Originally booked for 2 nights here, stayed a week. Excellent facilities, good location, nice rooms--though the TV room stank of sweaty backpackers--and the staff were nice enough when taking your money, but a bit grumpy at all other times...CHEER UP! YOU LIVE IN THE NICEST PLACE IN THE WORLD....SMILE!!!

Never mind all that though, the Swedish girl who drove the bus was enough for me, she was gorgeous and chatty, very friendly indeed!

All in all a 4/5 stay, i recommend it to anyone

What an awesome waterfront hostel! Luxury boats, bars, restaurants and shops all around, and the beach just across the road. Just the best position, great kitchen and chill-out facilities, but the best thing is the friendly, party atmoshphere.

The staff and owner are so friendly and helpful - plenty of things to do, free bus into town with many organized club crawls and party nights. Free bicycles, boogie boards and fishing rods for something to do when not on tours or watersports (great discounts for backpackers).

They even published my comments in their online guest book and I can see myself in the club crawl photos.

Thanks British Arms, you made my stay in Australia fantastic. To Ross, Ritchie and the staff - you run the best backpacker hostel in Australia for sure!!
