Hostelworld, the largest online hostel-booking platform has partnered with Gold Coast Tourism to create the world’s first ever ‘Sand Hostel’.

Food trucks, plus a variety of activities including beach volleyball, surf lessons, beach yoga, sand sculpting classes and more will also be on offer.

Those not staying at the hostel will also be able to enjoy the facilities during the day and live music into the evening at the beachfront lounge area and bar.

The Sand Hostel will offer the opportunity for the lucky guests to immerse themselves in the local Gold Coast culture and interact with travellers from across the globe with the sand between their toes in a beautiful setting. It will be unlike anything anyone has ever seen before.

The Sand Hostel has been designed and created by Lively Worldwide working alongside production designer, Jon Dowding, whose feature film achievements include Mad Max and The Blue Lagoon. World champion sand sculptor Dennis Masoud, or ‘Sandman’ as he is known, is building the sand structure and will add impeccable finishing touches to the enormous construction, which will use approximately 24 tonnes of sand.
