I was about to book that hostel but then I read that they require a 9 night minimum from certain dates over Christmas and New Year's, and I only wanted to stay for Christmas night. Did you have to book that many nights or were you able to just get one?

Me and my Friend wanted to stay there for two weeks any way so the one night booking thing wasnt a problem for us. Sorry i cant be more help, you could always just email them and ask they may offer the one night if they dont fill all their beds but im not sure. :)

Hi Amanda,

Im staying there over X-mas. I cant actually remember when im booked from but i think im there from the 23rd - 27th December.

Looks really good and from the confirmation you get looks like there's loads going on over Christmas too.. Another guy from here will be there too.

Cant wait to be on that beach on Christmas day. Send a pic home saying Merry Christmas from Oz in the Australian Summer :)

I see on their site that there is a 7 night option! Maybe the 9 night minimum was just on the booking site I was on. Think I might book at least a few nights anyway, genuinely just have no clue what I'm doing, haha.

Ok so I checked out the extras Surfside offers around Christmas and it looked pretty awesome, so I booked it for 9 nights, Dec 23rd-Jan 1st!

Brillient!! So glad iv asked will be bice to get to know some people before i get there.

Go you Jade! it was the extras they offer that attracted us too :)

Lesley, im sorry im not too sure i have not looked at internal flights yet but i cant imagine it would be to much, unless you mean flights from home to sydney in stead of melbourne, in which case iv paid just over 900 pound to fly to melboure and it was about 200 more if i wanted to fly to sydney :)
