Liked: Staff were really friendly and helpful. Loved how the hostel had something on every night - All you can eat pizza Mondays/Popcorn and movies Sundays etc! The whole place has a really homely feel to it and the open lounge area encourages everyone to socialise together! Met some really cool people here! Nice cheap drinks at the bar too! We extended our stay as we loved it that much!

Disliked: Could really do with having a couple more showers and toilets!

Liked: I didn't spend much time at the hostel, but the staff was extremely friendly. They offered shuttle buses into Surfers Paradise for free a few time throughout the day. There is a bar onsite. A good room to relax and watch tv in.

Disliked: The bunkbeds were exceptionally squeeky. Every move that the person underneath me made, I felt. This is not the case at other hostiles I stayed at. Outlets were not easily accessible in my room, so having a phone alarm when it was plugged in was useless.

Liked: The atmosphere was good, good front room with comfy sofas, nice pool and BBQ, staff were very helpful and friendly, rooms were spacious with places to hang clothes, bathrooms were clean and modern, kitchen was very clean and modern with everything you need, close to shops but a 40 min walk from surfers paradise or a 5 dollar bus.

Disliked: none really, just was far away from nightlife but you can get bus or walk easily enough.
