Liked: Nice hostel with a good vibe. Only 500 m from Premier bus station and the city centre. We got upgraded to a double room from a dorm so can only speak of that. Shared like an apartment with a couple of other double rooms which was good - own kitchen with an oven. Need to rent cutlery in reception though. They have pub crawls regularly which is nice. Clean hostel with friendly staff.

Disliked: A lot of hostel makes you pay a deposit for cutlery which is a bit annoying but okay.

Liked: Location is superb . 10 minute walk and boom your on the beach. Staff are overly helpful and were more than happy to help with anything from directions to recommending things. They offered a taxi service to the bus station when leaving, they lent me 2 bucks when I didn't have cash on me for the laundry facilities. The other comments which are negative about the hostel are rubbish, if you want to stay in a 5^ hotel by all means do it but for value for money / friendliness of staff / facilities / location / cleanliness really can't conplain one bit!

Disliked: Liked it all

Liked: There were many different social areas for people to enjoy depending on what they wanted to do; tv room, pool, different balconies, drinking games room, etc.

Disliked: The hostel had a strange layout and you couldn't just go find a friend in a different room as each room was in a different apartment. The kitchen and bathrooms were very basic, clean but not immaculate.

Liked: I thought that the set up of the hostel was great. They have lots of separate little apartment type things with your own balcony, kitchen etc. The location was also really good.

Disliked: Well all of the positives were majorly let down by the rooms and the bathroom. The 6 bed dorm was like a box - the beds were ridiculously close together and there was hardly any space to put your stuff. Because of this the room was like a sauna, you could not sleep it was so hot, and they didnt even have fitted curtains, so the 6am sun came blasting through. Another thing was the bathroom..it was always leaking, and the shower was just a few drips you could barely wash. It's just such a shame because if they just put a little more effort into the bathroom and bigger dorms, the sleeping inn would be an amazing place to stay

Liked: The friendliness of the hostel override my original dislike of the rooms/apartments. The staff are lovely, and the place quite charming.

Disliked: Not really clean. Brown carpet and brown and beige walls a bit depressing at first. I did have a late check in but mud was all over the bathroom floor. When the cleaners came round the next day it was a little bit nicer!

Liked: You get what you pay for. Surfers Paradide is definetly a party location. So you should expect a party hostel. There are plenty of specials like relatively cheap pub crwals, free breakfast, and sometimes free bbq. I highly recommend this hostel if you're looking for an awesome weekend at Surfers.

Disliked: Compared to other hostels in Australia it's a bit dirty. The beds and kitchen are clean. The main area and the pool could have been cleaner.

Liked: In the female only there were free hair dryers and straighteners to use! Even though it was very basic it was great to get free breakfast!

Disliked: The pool and communal area wasn't great. And only one shower between 14 girls meant having to que for the shower.
