Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast, Schoolies: Brisbane graduate shares video of her Hilton apartment

Schoolies teen blasts her smashed-up and mouldy $8,000 Hilton room – before exposing her own wild behaviour in the luxury apartment

  • A group of Schoolies teens shared a clip of their hotel room after just two nights
  • Brisbane graduate Amelia Wolsman shared a clip of the room on Monday
  • The room had a mouldy bathroom ceiling and damaged wall despite price tag 
  • Police arrested 67 people over the weekend, 49 of which weren’t school-leavers 

A group of high school graduates have revealed the gross reality of their Gold Coast Schoolies accommodation while inadvertently showing off their own wild behaviour as thousands of teens descend on the party capital. 

Brisbane school-leaver Amelia Wolsman, 18, shared a sarcastic TikTok on Monday of things that ‘make sense’ inside her privately-owned Hilton apartment. 

Surfers Paradise, the hub of the Gold Coast, is the most popular spot for high school graduates to celebrate the end of school with thousands of teenagers flocking to the Queensland party hotspot at the end of November. 

Ms Wolsman’s brief video showed the room’s bathroom is covered in black mould and one of the walls with a hole in it. 

The video featured a number of questionable shots from the teenagers, showing a filthy sink full of food, the group keeping a bowl of pickle juice and one of the boys lying in a cot that came with the apartment.

‘Scattest room in Hilton,’ Ms Wolsman captioned the video. 

Ms Wolsman’s room is within a Hilton residential tower next to the Hilton Surfers Paradise hotel that is filled with privately-owned apartments.

Guests staying in Hilton Residences are able to use the hotel’s facilities however the rooms and their cleanliness are separately managed.

Ms Wolsman isn’t the only Schoolies reveller to slam Hilton.

Another teen took to TikTok on Saturday to blast the Surfers Paradise hotel and how long lifts were taking due to the massive influx of guests.

The clip showed frustrated families dispersed among the flood of teenagers waiting to get up to their rooms.

Several commenters suggested guests use the hotel’s fire escape instead of waiting while others shared similar experiences.

‘Had to walk down 41 flights of stairs half the time at Schoolies, was not waiting for that lift,’ one person wrote.

‘Just wait until you are leaving on Saturday, when I went it took us over an hour to get a lift,’ another warned.

Hilton Surfers Paradise’s high Google rating has also taken a hit recently as guests complain of their rooms being too ‘loud’ and ‘damaged’.

‘The night clubs pumping in my room until 3am makes for a very bad sleeping experience. Recommend this place for clubbers only,’ one reviewer wrote.

Another said: ‘Unfortunately, the furniture really needs replacing. 

‘Blankets and fitted sheets have reddish stains on them, carpet has stains and ripped all around.  It smells like you walked into a man’s gym bag.’

A third guest wrote: ‘We stayed in exec room, and the cleaning was below standard.

‘Thick fluff and dust under the bed, lollies and sweets under the bed from previous guest, bathroom has a constant foul smell.

‘You’re in the heart of the club land. Outside on the same road is multiple night clubs. Some older guests may feel a little uneasy on weekend evenings.’

Despite the damning one-star tirades, plenty of guests offered glowing reviews for the hotel, boasting of its ‘fantastic’ service and central location. 

Queensland Police warned revellers to behave while staying on the Gold Coast after two groups were kicked out of their accommodation for balcony hopping. 

‘Do not jump from one balcony to another in our unit complexes,’ Acting Chief Superintendent Rhys Wildman said.

‘We cannot stress to our school-leavers the danger to yourselves and to others of conducting this activity.

‘It can lead to arrest, a $2,875 fine and one year imprisonment.’

Police believe about 25,000 school-leavers are staying in Surfers Paradise but only 17,000 official Schoolies wristbands have been distributed.

Officers arrested 67 people in the first two days of the event but only 18 were graduates – the rest made up by ‘toolies’ (non school-leavers).

‘The school-leavers are actually behaving on par or better than previous Schoolies years,’ Mr Wildman said.

‘We’ve not seen that sort of behaviour replicated and demonstrated by the non school-leavers.

‘If you misbehave, you are picking a very, very bad time to do so — we have police everywhere.’
