The brilliant minds behind Hostel World have teamed up with Gold Coast Tourism to breathe life into every beach-bums greatest fantasy: a hostel made entirely of sand on the sunny shores of Kurrawa Terrace, Broadbeach!

When you stick a label like ‘world’s first’ next to anything, you better be sure to go big or go home and that’s just what the team have done. The sand hostel has been fitted out with all the luxuries of a top-level hotel – think an outdoor bar, beach volleyball court, comfy beds, DJs and live music.Sand Hostel Gold CoastBut the extremities don’t stop there! The hostel was designed and created by Lively Worldwide alongside Jon Dowding, aka one of the big guns behind Mad Max. Constructing the space came down to world champion sand sculptor, Dennis Masoud, who worked with a whopping 24 tonnes of sand, being sure to add his own masterful finishing touches of course.

Spanning over three days, this one-off experience is not be missed and is, in fact, open to the public from Wednesday 20th until Friday 22nd of September. Whether you book to stay a night or not, everyone can enjoy the newest page in the GC’s history books with all day activities like surf lessons, sand sculpting classes, beach yoga, food trucks and so much more.

For those wishing to spend the night, it’ll be a mission as there are only 10 beds available – 1 private double room and an eight-bed dorm.Sand Hostel Gold Coast

To book simply keep an eye on the Facebook event page tonight and wait for the link to book to be posted. From there it’s first-in-first-serve like a Hunger Games blood bath where the winners emerge victorious in securing a once-in-a-lifetime experience. (Not a worry if you don’t get a spot because there’s plenty to do during daylight).
