Anything can say but the best hostel ive been to. Starting from reception mirka is the kindest recepcionist you are gonna meet, always up to help you with any request. The rest of the team are equally great and makes your nightsout completely unforgettable starting from 6pm with driking games!! The 12bed room seem more like your own flat than a hostel as you have own kitchen, bathroom and living room!! Pretty easy to meet people chilling in the coaches with goon! Looking foward to come back to sleepinginn

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.

Nice atmosphere, easy to meet people and most were very friendly and helpful. Good activities. Good with bathroom in every room. Close to the beach and center. Not particularly noisy during night even if its a party city
