Locals arent allowed
Overall a good stay. Busy out in Surfers Paradise to spend much time in the hostel. Although good, they do have a policy that locals are not meant to stay with them, which i didnt know but was staying in the room with another local. If this is a rule of theirs, it needs to be advertised more and not tell people at check in. It starts your stay off on a bad note.

Price may look appealing, but consider others
Staff are great, hotel/hostel isn't the best. It's not even great value for money in all honesty. I got the private room instead of a dorm which was a bit better from what I saw. Pool looked good and there is cheap drinks, but that's about it. Desperately needs updating. It's in a good location, close to most things in Surfers but there's lots not to like. One night was enough for me.

Not so good not so bad
Vlue for money but facilities are quite old and I was extremely in warm condition for one night and extremely in cold for another night becoz of the Aircon which cannot be adjusted temperatures. It felt like m in the middle of the street in freezing winter. I wore all clothes I got
