Liked: Super social hostel if you want it to be. Lots of great people and activities. Everyone plays volleyball at 6pm each night - and people actually play! Small pool there as well which is nice to enjoy throughout the day. The pub crawl we went to was super fun and there were other hostels there as well. Although its a tad out of the city (in therms of Surfers - its a 20 min walk), it means its closer to other beaches like Broadbeach which is awesome.

Disliked: Nothing :) Pretty lovely for a hostel.

Liked: Very clean and unlike other hostels when you arrive the sheets and pillow case have already been put on the bed for you which is great when you arrive tired after a long journey! There is a small pool and a great sauna. You can also do free laundry. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend this hostel!

Liked: Rooms were spacious. The free shuttle bus to and from the centre at the allocated times.

Disliked: There were no lockers to store valuables. The free wifi is turned off at 10pm and it is a pretty bad connection anyway. The plug sockets were in the middle of the wall which made it hard to charge your phone etc.

Liked: Staff were lovely and helpful. Location was okay, near the beach and around 20 minutes walk from the centre. Free shuttle bus to the transit centre was good. Organised activities made it easy to meet people.

Disliked: No lockers. Room didn't feel particularly safe. Amenities, kitchen etc are very basic. Bathroom wasn't clean and there was no soap. No air on just a fan so really warm in a room of six people.
