You’ve seen and heard of ice hotels where everything from the walls to the furniture to the floor are made of ice, now the trend of wacky accommodations made up of natural elements seems to be catching on as Australia has become home to the world’s first sand hostel. The hotel is a collaboration between Gold Coast Tourism and Hostelworld, sand artist Dennis Massoud also brought his expertise to the project.
The hostel will be located on the Gold Coast’s Kurrawa Beach, in Broadbeach near Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.
Unfortunately it’s not a permanent fixture, it will be constructed for three days only.
With limited guests spots available, interested individuals will have to head over to Hostelworld’s Facebook page and try to win a spot.
Created from 24 tonnes of sand, the hostel will have an 8-bed dorm, and a private double room.
Visitors can enjoy activities like volleyball, surf lessons, beach yoga and sculpting classes.
The sand hostel is open today so Gold Coast residents should seize the opportunity to check out this unique hostel!
