  • I came here without reading about it first or knowing anything about the place and I was surprised how great the place was. The staff and travellers who stay here are friendly and the rooms are surprisingly cheap, big and clean. There's a cool bar and a kitchen too for everyone to use, plus the wifi is affordable, which is pretty rare in this country. All in all, I highly recommend this place!

  • Stayed here with my partner and my 2 best mates for 2 nights and it was amazing. The staff are so friendly and helpful. You get what you pay for with the room but all in all it was a fantastic place to stay on the cheap! Will definitely be back again asap :)

  • Honestly the best Backpackers I have ever stayed at in my life! The friendliest most helpful staff you will ever meet, great prices, unreal facilities with a pool, spa, bar, pool tables, ping pong, and so much more, reps that can take you out partying in the best spots in surfers paradise every night of the week! meeting people is as easy as walking downstairs to the common area which is the backpackers social hub your guaranteed to make friends for life. I don't think they could possibly improve upon anything there :) but you will have to see for yourself!
