            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.

            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).

            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.

            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.

            Clean, relaxed atmosphere, comfortable matteresses

            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.

            nice staff

            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.

            Nothing typical. Maybe free wifi?

            --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
