    I like the location of the hostel as it's around all of the bars. It's pretty social and the free beer every night is a good way to meet people.

    We were advised on check in that we had booked a budget room, although on booking.com it just states single bed in 10 bed dorm. We were taken to a seperate part of the building into a room with no windows air conditioning or fan. When I asked about the air conditioning at reception I was advised that this had been broken for a while and that they dont advertise as having it, they wouldnt even provide a fan, although there was one behind reception.

    The staff from bunk is amazing! Super frendly, always keen to help. The facilities were good but I recon the hostel need a uptade.

    The staff were great - Aussie dude with long hair was one of the best hostel staff members I've met on my travels. Spending the extra few dollars a night to get out of the 20-person dorm (which has no AC or indeed any air circulation) is key - it's literally a couple of bucks and improves your stay hugely.

    It does attract a certain type of clientele - you'll likely have people making noise at 2am. Don't stay in a large dorm if you want a relaxing night's sleep.

    Location was good, reception/lounge was spacious and social, air con decent enough, no outside drinks allowed but drinks in bar aren't too expensive (which is good as you need to drink as so loud at night in the bedrooms)

    Bedrooms were disappointing and very noisy the bar/club is so loud in the room even with ear plugs. Ceiling leaked (told by staff nothing can do but give towels where it is leaking), constantly bothered for ID outside, when someone walked past bed whole floor and bed shook, power was not working in the room for most of one day, the room seemed clean on the surface but not had proper clean in a while especially under the beds where I found cockroach, kitchen was the same with limited fridges, especially dirty in the stairwell down to the kitchen, TV room out of order, laundry was quite expensive. Disclaimer I am not big complainer normally but felt very disappointed especially after enjoying the Bunk in Surfers Paradise.

    Included breakfast was nice. Pool was nice. Happy to get moved to another room with aircon

    On check-in, I wasn’t told the aircon in the room didn’t work and was horrible trying to sleep. It’s very easy to get dehydrated when you are constantly sweating.
