The rooms are ok. Not so dirty but not so clean, its ok. Its good share the bathroom only with your room mates. I travelled around Asia, and I paid one night in the hostel 6usd and always give to us towels!!! In this hostel no, but is not very important. The personal good. Its a crazy that the kitchen close at 9pm !! In general the hostel is very good, you have the beach at 50m . I recommend it

Typical Back packers
Cheap, Cheap and Cheap
it was a really cold week when i was there and they only give you a thin blanket which meant i froze every night and if i wasn't kept awake by the cold it was my incredibly squeaky bed. Other then that it was to be expected for a backpackers.

Small but crowded hostel
Rooms have own toilet and bath, close to tram station, close to the beach
What I like most is that it's just a walking distance to the beach. What I didn't like though is that it's a small hostel but really packed with guests, it's really crowded especially during nighttime. Because of this, it looks like the hostel is messy at times. I lost my shades in this hostel's lobby area, and it was never returned. Is this worth the money I paid? Most probably. But, I think they can do better. The hostel needs some upgrading.

Value for money!
Location. Price. Friendly staff.
The only problem was too much noise from other dorm mates till late night. Could not get a good rest. Otherwise no complaints and fairly satisfied.

There's a good location to walk to beach side or CBD. And there's a light tram station outside, it's very convenient !

dirty, uncomfortable, it was a nightmare.
15min distance from surfer's paradise, that' the only strength.
Dusty, dirty, more then 10 mosquitos in a room, and a giant cockerach is my room mate too. There is no air conditioner.
