Very thank staff : Aga totally help. My English is not good. She has very patience and help planning travel. X'am lunch so warmly. Thank all of your staff. Free shuttle bus to the city is very good The convenience of the Internet is very lacking in every bed. There is no light and power incharge for each bed. The fan of the room is very dirty. The room is very stuffy. The brightness of the room is not bright enough. The kitchen is very dirty. The management of the kitchen must to be established.

I loved the location, next to a shopping mall but far removed from more touristy areas, just across the street from the beach. Ventilation in the room was poor, and the windows and door was often open. Therefore, security was poor.

Good to have free luggage storage after checking out 😉. Even though there are still some distances between the hostel and Surfers Paradise, bus 705 is available for us to go there in 15 mintues.
