We stayed 4 night in double room. The staff was was amazing, super friendly and helpful. 5 min walk to the airport, which was great as our flight back was very early in the morning. 15 min walk to the beach, shops, restaurants. 40 min to Surface Paradise. We stayed in room 7 for 2 nights, room was small and...

We chose the YHA Coolangata because we had a 6am flight to Cairns and the YHA is within walking distance to the airport. Apparently, many travellers choose this hostel for that very reason, and we did see fellow guests on our same flight. The Gold Coast is a bit of a strange animal, as it has no real downtown, and...

With the floods just south of the border we needed a cheap place to stay to wait it out. This was fine for a nite. Shared a 6 bed dorm and really didn't sleep well with lots of street noise n street lights shining through window. Got an adequate bed, towel n shower for $36. All ages staying there and...

This is the most expensive hostel I have stayed in, throughout Australia, which was already off putting.There's no breakfast, WiFi is only free in communal areas & you have to pay more for WiFi in your room & then pay extra to hire a locker.Noise is so loud from the airport so not much sleep. Rooms are clean however, but...

Booked on a late night flight into Coolangatta. The hostel was only about 10min walk away. Arrived at 11pm and the night manager was very friendly and gave all the info I needed. The bathrooms were clean, plenty of showers. No drama. I left early morning so didn't get to do much more there. I wish I could've stayed for...

The location is the main highlight. Closer to airport which is walkable for about 15 minutes. I walked early in the morning at 4 to catch my 6am flight. The washroom is definitely fine for use. I like the facilities in the washroom especially in shower area. Enough place to put and hang my things. Not to forget, the strong...

I love planes so the view of the airport was cool. Unfortunately, I am also a light sleeper, so they woke me up a bit. That aside, it's a small, homely hostel, with a cute dining area and plenty of different spaces to chill in. It's pretty clean too. I even noticed a staff member wiping window sills as part...
