                  Good for the money, was much cheaper than other places. It is hostel style and standard.

                  No towels or toiletries provided. Rooms are small and cramped. No attached bathrooms, only 2 toilets to be shared by 7-8 twin rooms. Not value for money

                  Clean budget accomodation.

                  sheets and towels not included in room price also we were travelling as 3 friends and would have liked seperate beds.

                  It felt safe & secure & I liked that the room key also could open the front door.

                  Not very big kitchen facilities

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  Very friendly and accommodating staff. Great value for money, I'll definitely stay here again next time I'm on the Gold Coast.

                • Family with children
                  7.0

                  Convenient location. Within short walking distance almost to everywhere ie. Coles, bus-stops, etc.. Very helpful, resourceful and friendly staff (Ms Terry). The Convenience Store located just opposite is another plus point.

                  Limited number of washrooms. Place to hang laundries is another inconvenient matter especially for guests who are staying for more than a week.

                • Family with children
                  5.0

                  I liked the small size of the place and the fact that it wasn't amongst all the high rises. The pool was a bonus that I wasn't expecting.

                  The hygiene levels of the kitchen were pretty poor (as in rotten food in the shared refrigerator and also in the microwaves that obviously hadn't been cleaned out for a while ) and there were no sheets on the bed so it was pretty hot to sleep in the room. The bedroom fan was pretty rickity but as there was no air-conditioning you needed to have it on anyway.

                  Convinence shopping

                  Linen is not clean enough.

                • Group of friends
                  4.2

                  The ad is mislead as it states " walking distance from surfers paradise"

                • Single
                  8.2

                  It was handy to where I was working for the day. Room was clean and tidy, as were the bathrooms and kitchen. Staff (Marcus esp) very helpful and friendly. It's good to be able to prepare my own meals as I'm on a special diet as well as a budget, so can't afford to eat out very much. I was able to park out the front of the building for a short time, which made it handy to get luggage out of the car.

                  Overnight parking is a bit of an issue. Apparently they have some parking available under the building (for a fee), but I didn't find this out till late the night I was staying (and I've stayed there before and didn't know then either). Stairs at the outside entrance - no ramp for people with luggage. Reception is upstairs inside and at the back of the building, so you've either got to cart luggage upstairs to check in (no lift) or leave it in the foyer and hope it's safe. Then if your room is downstairs, you've got to cart it back downstairs again. That's probably okay for young backpackers, but not for older people. Good aspects far outweight these couple of drawbacks though.

                • Family with children
                  3.2

                  The one thing our family liked was the location of the Arrival Accommodation Centre.

                  We arrived and had to walk upstairs and down the long, dark corridor to the managers office. It felt like we were walking down a prison tunnel and the smell in the managers office confirmed this feeling. The family room we booked was downstairs at the end of the long dark corridor tunnel. The headboard on the double bed was bent and broken; the hook for the curtain rail was broken on one side so this meant the sharp pointy end became a dangerous hazard; air conditioning was one ceiling fan; the kitchen was dirty, the stove had a sign 'Do not use' on it with the front door tied shut with rope; the flies were abundant in the kitchen and dining room. There were 2 shared bathrooms, one single toilet and laundry for general use downstairs. The single toilet we were told when we checked in was 'out of order'. The shared bathroom next door smelt of urine, fixtures I.E. taps, handles sinks, floor looked and smelt unclean and dirty. The laundry was a mess, the washer clearly assigned for staff use was overflowing with washing. Directly outside the laundry draped over the wooden railings to dry hung the bedding I.E. sheets, duvet covers etc that guests obviously used. Needless to say we slept on top of the covers and laid towel over the pillows hoping that we would not become victims of unclean bedding. The pool was filthy, clearly unfit for use and what we found alarming was there was no sign to tell guests that the pool water did not meet minimum safety hygienic standards. Our family has stayed at hostels and backpackers regularly with our 3 growing children over the past 15 years and we are very disappointed, absolutely disgusted by our experience at the Arrival Accommodation centre. The nonchalant attitude of the manager towards our concerns angered us; he was unapologetic, unhelpful and uncaring. We took our $20 key bond and left vowing to, if given an opportunity , would let unsuspecting people know to avoid this place.
