Liked: The people at the hostel were nice. You could easily find new friends because they go out to different places every night. The rooms are ok and you have your own locker.

Disliked: The kitchen is very small and you just get plastic dishes when you ask for. The breakfast is very cheap just cornflakes and toast. They just offer vegemite. There is no jam or anything.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything, rooms are really crammed and smell awful, the toilets and showers were so disgusting i didnt even want to use them. The staff werent helpful went on a pub crawl and nobody told us about the dress code. A female member of staff came into our room in the middle of the night to "cuddle" one of the other guys in the room, lets just say i ddnt appreciate hearing that while im trying to sleep. The next morning we were dropped off by the staff that went out that night, surely she shouldnt have been driving!

Liked: Very nice pool, every night a different club with free entry and drink. Good location. Not to close to the city, maybe 5 minutes walking, and therefore quite at night.

Disliked: My room was very small and extremely hot. One fan is simply not enough, I would recommend at leased a second fan for each room. Do not expect to meet locals there. A lot of Germans and English people.

Liked: The Hostel had a great vibe to it; it was small enough so that you could happily socialise with everyone but had enough people to create a good atmosphere. It wasn't in the centre of town so there wasn't any noise keeping you awake at night, but it was only a short walk into the busiest part and to the beach also. The hostel offeres free Wi-Fi but you could also pay to use a higher speed interent, which was a good option. They offered free breakfast and often held BBQ's in the evening. There were organised Pub Crawls and Nights Out throughout the week, but a lot of people opted to chill in the outdoor area in the evenings playing drinking games and ping-pong. This area closes at 11pm so not to annoy other residents, which I thought was respectful. Lastly, the pool area was great and was a good place to relax and socialise during the day. Definitely reccommend this Hostel!

Disliked: Unfortunately, it wasn't a great start to my stay as I was left standing at the bus station for two hours waiting for the shuttle, despite them telling me numerous times that they were on their way. In the end, a lady from the Backpacker Info desk drove me there in her own car; the Hostel was only 10 minutes away so I have no idea why the shuttle didn't come and I didn't receive an apology either. Also, our room got a little bit hot as there was no air-conditioning.

Liked: The beds are AMAZING!!!! The whole place is well equipped and very clean. Lots to do and very close to the centre of Surfer's. It's the best hostel I've stayed in so far.

Disliked: There were quite a few smokers staying there, so that was a bit antisocial.
