I was pretty pleased with this hostel, although I only stayed for the night in order to catch my plane to Sydney from OOL Airport the following day. I'm not a surfer and I wasn't really that excited to hit the Gold Coast (which is why I flew to Sydney so quickly, haha), but I must admit the hostel was... More

This is a very well located hostel. Just a quick walk out of the airport, with public buses going by, and a courtesy shuttle bus. The place itself is clean and comfortable enough. For the cold nights mid-year (yes, it does get cold here) I think that closing the louvred windows would be an idea. It does feel like a... More

My primary aim for choosing Coolangatta YHA was because of its close proximity to the Coolangatta airport from which I had a morning flight the next day. (I have this irrational fear of being at the mercy of unscrupulous cabbies should I not have other alternatives in place!) The fact that the airport was a mere 500m walk away sealed... More

Double bed was good, room was ample for short stay about 3 metres by 3 metres with small table, power outlet and shelf for storage.Staff were friendly, shared amenities were clean and showers hot. Lounge area was reasonably... More

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
