Welcome to our hostel

The Ponderosa Hostel & Camping backs onto a three-hectare beachfront - one of the most beautiful beaches on the Gold Coast. With a private exit onto the beach, this makes the hostel perfect for a unique, relaxing break.

We want to be different from other accommodation, and so we have decorated our whole hostel in a Texan cowboy theme, so that our guests can be transported to the US west in the second half of the nineteenth century.

Our staff is available 24 hours a day, providing personalised service and working with the needs of our customers. Whether in winter or summer, La ponderosa Hostel has everything you need, even a fireplace to warm your feet on colder days, or a pool where you can take a dip to escape from the scorching heat. And when the sun comes up, you can enjoy the beach located just steps from the Hostel with countless activities.

The Ponderosa is your place to meet people you never imagined you'd know, travellers from all over the world have come here and left their two cents.
