    Surfers Paradise YHA, Main Beach

    Surfers Paradise YHA Hostel is a great base for backpackers to explore the Gold Coast. A stone's throw to Main Beach and overlooking the marina, you can learn to surf, shop till you drop, enjoy drinks at the downstairs pub or party 'til sunrise in town. Surfers Paradise YHA is your ticket to all the thrills on the Gold Coast and Surfers Paradise is a haven for budget conscious travellers. This hostel is not recommended for families.

    Family Rooms: To book a family room rate there must be at least one child under 18 and 1-2 adults; otherwise this special room rate will be adjusted to the usual adult prices with the difference payable on arrival.

    • Friendliest hostel I have ever been to. Though it is not right down town in Surfers Paradise, the shuttle bus was helpful and public transportation works too. I would definitely recommend staying here.
