At first sight the hostel looks quite like a mess. As already written in other reviews it's not the cleanest place but I guess that's just impossible when so many people use the same facilities. The concept is great cause u get like a little apartment which u don't have to share with everyone but for example with 1 other...

Thank you for the review! Fantastic to hear that you loved our dorm room set ups and the family vibe we have - we are so proud that our staff are always partying with the guests! Sorry to hear that we didn't quite meet your expectations with tidiness. We have a great team of young cleaners who work hard to...

Being a lover of great hostels/backpackers and needing a night to stay in the Gold Coast to experience it in all it's splendour I decided to stay at the Sleeping Inn. Your rooms are set up like mini apartments, two dorm rooms and a shared living room and kitchen. The location is perfect for experience the Gold Coast nightlife. The...

Hey - thanks for the review, we love being so close to the Gold Coast night life and beaches too. We're also very proud to be a BYO hostel with no bar, as our guests can save a bit of money buying their own drinks & have more to spend on partying! Glad to hear you enjoyed our friendly party...

Stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm, it was nothing like I was expecting. There was only 4 beds in the room which was small but sufficient, and we had our own kitchen, living room with TV and dining room table, and two balconies. The layout was great, and made for a really homely feel. The staff were so nice,...

What a great time here in this hostel. Back in Australia for a short visit and had a great time at Sleeping Inn. The rooms are like mini apartments, there was a balcony, kitchen, living room and bathroom in our dorm. So friendly and easy to meet people. The Inn is right in the centre of Surfers making everything shops,...

The girls room was awesome with the communal area, kitchen and the hair stations! Really well set out and everything you need was there. The organised nights were fun and laid back and everyone that worked there was helpful and friendly.

I love this hostel - will def stay again. Working in the Gold Coast it was perfect for location and was filled with awesome people. Really fun and easy going :) would recommend it. Standard hostel cleanliness and people get a bit loud at night but that's normal. Loved it.

Place was clean despite the odd creepy crawly in the room but it's Australia so it's bound to happen. Hostel staff very nice, approachable and inclusive. Didn't like how they just walked in to the room at times to see if people wanted to go out or to close windows, found that a bit intrusive.

Don't stay at this hostel if a pool is important to you. The pool was old and didn't look very clean. I stayed at Sleeping Inn for 4 nights and I didn't see one person get in the pool. I found the rooms unclean and the blankets were filthy. My first blanket had a dirty band aid on it so...

A few things need addressed here, but firstly, if you genuinely don't care for your health, want to go on the tear and wake up hating yourself full of deep, deep regret, this is the place for you.
