We had an early morning flight to Cairns and hence chose this hostel. It is walking distance from the airport which was the biggest advantage. It is across the road from Kirra Beach and Coolangatta Beach. The management runs a free shuttle bus to predetermined stops at regular intervals as it is away from the centre. They had a party...

One night here before my flight to NZ. A perfectly good place to use as your base in the southern Gold Coast. Just a short walk to an amazing long beach and the airport. I was given a very small room that probably should be used as a broom closet but it was fine for one night and I'm sure... More

As hostels go, this one meet all my needs. On relatively short notice I was able to secure a private room. Conveniently located on the end of the building and adjacent to the pool, it couldn't be better. The room was well appointed and very clean. Bed was comfortable although small for two people. Traveling solo, this did not present... More

Worst YHA - in fact, hostel - ever. No house rules apply. TV blaring at midnight. Common area lights on all night. People laughing & chatting till 2 am. Doors slamming all night ! Grubby and poky. Rated - .5. First and last time for me - don't waste your money.

If you want to stay at a fair budget place with friends, I think this is the place. Big rooms with lots of showers and cool outside environment with pool, tennis table, and others. Only just one bus to Snapper Rocks and Kirra if you are there to surf.

They have cleaned up their act in regard to local riff-raff have been staying there for over a week and all guests have been very pleasant. The operator in charge does have a chip on shoulder so bypass him and talk to the lovely girls at reception. New hot water system, great little pool, plenty of couches to watch tv... More

I should have read the reviews on TripAdvisor before booking. I have completed the hostels on-line survey so this review should be no surprise to them. This is not a place for families. It is a place for young people to party and they need to turn away families. We were kept awake by yelling and swearing while drinking games... More

Room was good, spacious, with space for everyone to keep their stuff without making a mess. Common areas were alright. Only bad part was the location. It's in the middle of nowhere. They have a free shuttle to coolangatta itself but every 3 hours, only. The way I see it they could make it more frequent once it's a 15... More

It was out first time in a hostel type of accommodation. Surprisingly, we liked it as it was clean and comfortable. The staffs were very friendly n helpful. It is convenient for those who have an early flight to catch. Overall was a good experience.
