Management/service leaves much to be desired
Staff was horrible. Guy at front desk was glaring weakness as he was hard to work with.

Very good place for young backpackers!
If you're looking for a fun place to stay in Surfers Paradise this is the one! First of all, the staff here is very friendly and nice. My friend got sick during our stay here and they were very helpful so we found a hoapital and pharmacy etc. The rooms are fresh and clean (we stayed in a private twin room). Soft beds, good air and lots of space. Pool area was fresh and a nice place to hang in. They play good music during the days. In the evenings they create very fun events like bbq and taco-nights witch helps creating a good atmosphere at the hostel. Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to join there, but we talked to other guests who said it was a lot of fun! The breakfast was very good as well! Wifi is very fast and good. The only bad things at this hostel is that the bathrooms are a little bit unclean. But you can tell the stuff to fix it and they will. We enjoyed our stay here very much and we recommend you to stay here as well! :)
