      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Nice atmosphere

      Location:
      Located in Southport, on the Gold Coast. It is about a 5-10 minute drive from Surfers Paradise. However, the hostel provides a free pick-up from the bus station in Surfers. They also drive the bus regularly between Surfers and the hostel, so there is always the opportunity to get a lift into Surfers. There are things to do in Southport, but most of the main attractions are located in Surfers Paradise.

      **********************************************************
      Rooms:
      Clean and spacious. Double, twins, triples and 4-6 bed dorms are available. The hostel is actually an old Queenslander (a large house), and it definitely has a homely feel to it, which extends to the rooms as well.

      If you look at the pictures on their leaflet or their website, the rooms look very nicely decorated and homely. Although my room was nice, it didn't look anything like these. I'm not accusing them of false advertising, but they definitely put the nicest-looking rooms on their leaflet!

      **********************************************************
      Facilities:
      There is a large dining area and kitchen. Other facilities include a lounge room, pool table, swimming pool and laundry. My room had an en suite which was shared with the people in the next room.

      Free breakfast is offered, although this just consists of cereal.

      **********************************************************
      Overall Recommendation:
      I really liked this hostel, especially the friendly atmosphere and homely feel. I stayed here a few days with friends, then when they left I moved into a hostel within Surfers because it was more convenient for me. But if you don't mind being a short drive out of Surfers, I would recommend Trekker's.
