Good location clean could be better”
The Aquarius hostel is across the road from the light rail and about 400 m walk to Australia Fair Shopping Centre The hostel has a range of accommodation in bunk bed Style rooms which are compact and unfortunately which do not have any ceiling fans or reconditioning which is really required in a Queensland climate. Banks are banks are there isn't much to say about them but they are clean and the sheets that was provided were clean. There is only one toilet on the entire floor which I thought was a little poor & which I think would be an issue if it was very busy. Overall it's a friendly hostel and it's ok for a couple of nights stay but it's nothing special.
Good backpackers very clean
Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Hope to see you again in the future.
This is the best backpacker i ever stayed ”
Friendly staff: Nathan was nice and approachable throughout. Comfortable environment:clean kitchen for cooking, hotel-like toilet, cute design, good location of bedroom(able to get sunshine in the morning) great location:1 minute walking distance from Southport south light rail station, so convenient to main beach and surfers paradise. I’ll definitely stay here again when traveling to Gold Coast next time!! Oh btw, i learnt from one of the local driver that this has been the safest backpacker for years( no records/news of stolen stuff).
Nice location,kindly stuff,clean room,well equipped kitchen ”

Good spot in the CBD of the Gold Coast”
The place is located 2 mins away from the Southport South tram station- which runs 24 hours. It has its own mini bar, self-service kitchen, laundry room, a pool, and a lounge. The only down point is the lack of Air Condition which can be a bit of a pain on summer nights but, in general, is a good place to stay for short term.
Great friendly staff, many facilities, great clean, tidy rooms and amenities.. overall a great experience..
The inhospitable hostel I've even lived”
After you checked out, you have no welcome to sit inside the hall or on any sofas in the hostel. Because No paid no stay, said by the female manager, in the most unwelcome and humiliating tones I've ever heard from the backpackers or hostels. No, that is not the right way to treat a guest from a hostel.
Location, Good Staff”
The best thing is location. 30 seconds from Southport south tram statiom by walk. Also staffs are so kind. However, There is nothing to enjoy at the backpacker. Eventhough the price is quite cheap so it is really nice to stay.
It was a good place to stay short-term. Staff were relaxed and friendly, the place was clean and, ignoring the lack of accessibility in bathrooms, it was a comfortable stay. My biggest issue was related to the fridge-space. The policy of throwing out un-labeled food everyday meant I lost dinner and breakfast a few times because people had shoved my food around and dislodged or torn my labels. QLD a hot area and the kitchen big enough for a second fridge.
Simple and clean”
My stay was a pleasant one as I have all the room to myself for half of my stay which was great. Toilet and kitchen was clean almost daily, I would recommend it even this was my first stay in a hostel.
Nice location, great staff, close to shops”
Location and staff were great. Room was good but only one fan and it was so hot. There is no food provided by hotel not even tea/coffee. They close the kitchen at 10:00 so if you are planning to cook make sure you do it between 7 am and 10 pm.
good place for relax n shopping”
I will choose this hostel if i visit gold coast again! Close to bus stop, easy transport from airport or to anywhere else. Friendly staff and clean kitchen/bath room. They are also nice on helping booking travel package. Nice place to stay!
Best Location, friendly Staff, a good place for Rest
Clean, kind staff”
clean rooms friendly staff”
good value , clean tidy hostel recommend to stay there.
Just a simple hostel”
It was at a good location for my purpose of visit in Gold Coast, but it's far from the tourist areas like Surfers Paradise. The building is like an old house that's converted into a hostel. I don't like the layout though because it's confusing, like a maze. What I really didn't like in this hostel was the fact that the wifi connection is limited to 200mb - you need to ask for another wifi credentials after every 200mb session. I went there at winter, so I didn't experience the hostel during the hot season. The staff were quite friendly.
next to southport south station ”
It s located next to a big shopping mall , australian fair. Southport is a nice place to live in , with chemist warehouse , cinema , asian grocery. Dont miss the anzac park and lagoon there . It will be fun to kids. The bedroom is a bit dirty without airconditioning. Staffs are very friendly and helpful
Can't wait to move out!”
The hostel is located right next to a road junction & it can get very noisy at night. The room is very bare, pillows & mattresses are very old, flattened & uncomfortable. There is no fan in the room & it can get quite stuffy in the day. Worse thing is the female toilet can't be locked!
Recommended for budget travelling, though room is small and pack but the service is owesome. There are few good place to enjoy food, Daniel Stuart is one of it, they serve a very good breakfast. There is one Japanese restaurant, can't remember the name within 500m from Aquarius Backpacker, value for mony and taste good.
Just okay. Small kitchen”
--parking lot very small. And they require you to give them your car keys in case of fire assembly. Which I am not very comfortable with, because I hate that Ineed to ask reception for my keys whenever I want to go out. - no hooks for hanging clothes in the shower room. There is a wooden shelf, like an old storage shelf or bookshelf, which is probably good for placing your shampoos and other bottles, not for clothes! -- bar and pool downstairs could be a bit noisy. But itvcan be a pro for young people
