The hostel had great aspects, they staff always had activities and events going on and they even mad sure everyone got invited. Due to the hostel being open planned and our rooms looking on to the motorway this meant we had a lot of noise which is understandable but we also had a lot of wind making the room very cold. The rooms are probably great during the summer but in the winter it was awfully cold. We also had to pay a deposit on plates and Cutlery! The wifi was hot and miss and only available during 7-10 which is unfair. We only payed by hostel bookers and our deposit was not taken of.

I spent 2 nights here and it was ideal. Swimming pool, tennis, volleyball, bar, well-equipped kitchen, free wi-fi and washing machine. Close to the city center and 5 minutes walk to the beach. Everything was clean and the service was friendly and helpful at all times.
It's because of places like this that Australia gets its reputation of having some really good hostels.

Great little hostel with good facilities such as a bar, pool, kitchen facilities, dorm rooms and private rooms. We had a group of 9 so had a 7 bed mixed dorm and a private twin, both rooms were great. Ideally located near tram stop, 2 stops from centre of town and main beach.

I stayed at this hostel for around 5-6 nights. During this time I found the room, bathroom and kitchen to be nothing but clean. The cleaners would clean perhaps twice a day which kept it all in good shape.

The facilities that were available were also fantastic. A swimming pool, tennis/volleyball court (with equipment at reception) , free washing machines, a TV room, free Wi-Fi and a sauna were all added bonus' compared to other hostels.

For those who own a car there is also a small free underground car park for 3 cars (no vans though)

As there is a licensed bar you cannot bring your own alcohol, which may be a sticking point for many, however the bar has extremely reasonable prices $3-4 for beer and $7 for bottles of wine.

The location is perhaps the only drawback to the hostel with it being around a 15 min walk into the heart of Surfers Paradise, this is ever so slightly remedied by frequent shuttle buses offered by the hostel. Still, a 15 minute walk is not much to complain about considering all the positives on the hostel (you should also be worried for your personal health if you can't walk for 15 minutes)

Conversely the hostel is located next to the beach. A 5 minute walk from the hostel to the beach. They also allow free body board rental from the reception.

The staff are also friendly and helpful and could not be faulted for the time I stayed there.

I thoroughly suggest staying here!

Great hostel, free Wi-Fi and free laundry! Clean and big rooms. Hostel has its own bar with cheap drinks. Nice little swimming pool. About 15/20 minute walk to city centre and 5 minute walk to beach. Bar crawl nights for 30 dollars. Would recommend this hostel to everyone!
