Liked: You have your own shared apartment. Very good for mixing with the people in your unit and great for cooking as you have a kitchen to only a few people. Also you have your own living room with TV and sofas to relax on.

Disliked: pool is very small and not a lot of internet facilities

Liked: The dive in movie was good, with food on offer for a reasonable price. The location was good too. They seemed to cater for different types of people aswell. the rooms were a little small but since they were like little apartments it was not too bad.

Disliked: Every morning they would come in and clean. LOUDLY at 9am. They would just vacume clean the room and under your bed, asleep or not. Annoying as these were mainly backpackers working there and were very unpleasant

Liked: Very clean, cleaners in every day, had our own kitchen and living space shared between two bedrooms. Very close to the greyhound bus station and stumbling distance to the clubs and bars. Would not reccommend doing the club crawl, unless you get it for less than $30 for two nights, the clubs are free entry before 10pm anyway and the free drinks are only valued at around $3 one is a shot. But they are very busy so good place to meet people as it attracts a big crowd, but haggle the price.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: the location of the hostel near by the surfer paradise central transit.not far away from the beaches. kitchen and bathroom in room to share with others dorm mate.

Disliked: it stated 4 beds dorm room, but there is another room in the room who occupy 4 beds. so it's actually 8 beds dorm room in one but separated by a door and wall. so it means 8 of us is using the kitchen and bathroom.

Liked: Average

Disliked: Was picked up by the Limo, never seen such an old limo (must be older than me!!), was literally falling apart and one of the passengers didn't open so had to climb across to get out the other one!!! Such a short distance too, would have been quicker to walk!! Booked two beds in a four bed dorm, and was placed in two separate four bed dorm rooms as told they were fully booked (even though we booked online a couple of days before). What really annoyed me was there was a bed free in my room after all..it was never slept in the night we stayed there..so we didn't have to be split up!
