We arrived tired and jet lagged - left laughing and happy. Friendly staff and guests, nice atmosphere and just the right size. Accommodation was large and comfortable - a big thanks to Ben and the team at Sleeping Inn 🏄 Paradise 😀

I would without a doubt recommend this hostel to anyone wanting to enjoy surfers paradise!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in during my time in Oz. Purely because the staff are so relaxed. This creates a great atmosphere in the hostel. Other hostels I have stayed in have been really strict around petty things like deposits for a towel. Guys here have the right attitude and it really makes it a great place...

This hostel is by far my favourite so far, it's really social, the staff and guests are super friendly. The dorm rooms have their own kitchens and living spaces and the bunk beds are in a bedroom. Only downside is the 8 share rooms only have 1 bathroom to share.
