Some of the backpackers guests are pigs. Despite signs asking them to clean up and CTV cameras they leave dirty dishes with food scraps in the sink and on the TV Lounge table. The ladder to the top double bunk bed in Rm 5 was not fixed to the frame and made a loud noise when used. The facilities are actually pretty good if some of the guests could be more considerate.

Great spot in Surfers Paradise. Fun place with friendly staff. Rooms/beds are comfortable and price is reasonable. I would recommend this to others
