Surfers Paradise Backpackers Resort is situated in a relatively quiet location, with the beach just a five minute walk away and the centre of town about 20 minutes away (or so) depending on your pace.
If you really must stay right in the town centre you may want to consider other alternatives, but this is actually a pretty good place to choose. It’s been going since 1986, is well maintained and good value.
You have the option of twin and double rooms, dorms that each have their own en-suite bathrooms and you can also get your own self contained apartments. The standard of accommodation is high for the price.
This is another place that has a better than average range of facilities for guests to use. These include a pool, spa, sauna, BBQ area, a free washing machine, free wifi, tennis, basketball, volleyball, pool table, table tennis, Playstation 3, foosball and more.
There is also a television area with a large screen TV for when the weather is bad or if you just want to chill out. There is a (cheap) bar on the premises, and if you are planning to sample the local nightlife you can get yourself some passes for free entry and even some free drinks.
Apart from being a bit out of the way, it’s hard to say anything negative about this place at all. The accommodation is good, the facilities above average and there is generally a good, friendly atmosphere too.
