But that's about it. Having to pay for wifi? Guys, come on - I can pay 1/4 of that price in Asia and get decent internet included. Dirty, noisy and the token Aboriginal man in the lobby that told me Australians stole his country and he's proud to harm any of them sealed the deal for me - would only... More

My family have been holidaying at Coolangatta for over forty years. Staying at Sebel is the one of the best experiences . Great Staff, fantastic location, close to amenities. Thanks Sebel great value for our money.

We chose this place only because its room rates are value for money and its location is super near the airport (10 mins walk). The double room was basic and quite clean. However, the common showers were not as well kept.

I recommend this hostel for people who have to catch a plane the next day. Kitchen wasn't that clean and didn't like the condition of my bed. The way i'd describe is as if part in the middle of the bed is like squashed in. I did sleep well though. Lockers are small and practically you can't fit anything unless... More

The hostel is REALLY close to the airport (like 5mins of walking). There's also a pub nearby and a service station for water and food if you get in late. Beds are pretty solid, so you don't almost collapse it when you get onto the top bunk. For the price, this is really a good hostel. Only stayed for one... More

the room is very, very basic. metal bunk beds, crap bedding, old and worn furniture. won't say it's spotlessly clean, but it isn't grotty either. one problem when I was there was that the bath water wasn't draining fast enough in the communal shower so there was a bit of ponding ankle deep. isn't exactly value for money because it's...

As others YHA, it has good quality standards : - Clean double room - Clean facilities (showers, toilets and kitchen) - Nice dinner area We tested the laundry and it was working fine The only negative aspect was that this is a little far from Coolangatta itself, you have to take a bus which is quite expensive or to take...

Having stayed here twice now (July last year and currently stating ATM) I must say the hostel is excellent value. Down to earth reception folk, Cooly the dog running around, 500m away from Gold Coast airport, and close to an awesome tavern that does awesome meals. Can't fault these guys, excellent value and would stay again in a heartbeat.
