Decent Hostel

by Brandon L on 08 Jan 2017 (Solo Traveller)

This hostel is pretty well run. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. It's usually pretty clean as well. At night, the rooms are quiet. They also have a very good deal for the Currumbin Animal Sanctuary that I would highly recommend. My greatest complaint regarding this hostel is its location. If you don't have a car, it is approximately equidistant to two towns (45 minutes walking). If you have a car, this probably isn't an issue. They do offer a shuttle bus to and from Cooly four times...

Well organized, great front desk

by niki_traveling on 07 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

The hostel itself it a bit out of the way from the city center, but they have their own shuttle bus schedule downtown. You can catch those to get into the center. The hostel was right in front of the airport, so if you need to fly in or fly out, very convenient. What I liked about this place the most was the help from the staff. Tessa at the front desk was wonderful, helped out in every angle possible. She organized the tour to the wildlife sanctuary and got a prorated rate for only 40 AUD. Ma...

Good experience

by zuluwarriors1879 on 10 Dec 2016 (Family Traveller)

We were a family of four with 2 tweens, It was a pleasant experience; check-in was very quick. Our room was large enough and clean.

The kitchen had all we needed and there was a big room to have our meals in. Our kids had fun playing pool and table tennis. There was a tiny swimming pool but as we were leaving for home the next day, we did not ...

An awful place to stay. We booked 2 nights here at the last minute due to a change of plans. We had a private room, meaning it had one gross bed, curtains that covered half the windows, and the windows didn't close. This is right next to the airport, you can see the planes next to you out the window. Thank god we had a car and could go around to other cool towns. There was noise and bright lights from the planes until 11pm and it started back up again at 5am. Then, there was noise and lights fro...

No sleep

by Susann T on 13 Nov 2016 (Solo Traveller)

While the place was lovely and Rooms and amenities were clean; the noise from the airport was insane! So if you don't like sleeping (or need it) stay here. Being close to the beach and airport may be the initial draw point but it is super loud - especially first in am and last at night
