A good bday celebration

I had good time staying at the hostel except the fridge was working properly (it was warm not cold). No air condition (maybe in the future look into getting air condition especially during hot and muggy days). Had a lot of information of activities and tours to do on the Gold Coast. Overall good place to stay on a budget. Staff were extremely friendly.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

A very short walk to the Surfers Paradise RSL which has a good value on breakfast. For $12 you order one item off the menu and get free complimentary continental breakfast including cereal, toast, pastries, fruit, tea and coffee

Terrible

Room was tiny, no air conditioning, extremely hot and no windows to open. We requested to upgrade as we had a 5 week old baby, but no rooms were available. We asked for our money back but couldn't as we booked through you. Also we were not aware when we booked that there was no parking available so there was $50 for parking elsewhere. Not good value. We could have stayed in a much nicer place for the cost of the room plus parking.
