I stayed here with a group of young adults and another lady; we were both tour supervisors. It was abysmal, aside from the very approachable staff members Ebony and Jordan who did their best with what they had. The room was extremely basic, the bed was acceptable, the toilet/shower rooms were unpleasant. There was constant noise during the night including... More

Coolangatta YHA was a great experience for my friends and I. In very close proximity to the airport, we could easily just walk to the airport. Once we got there, the receptionist was very friendly and the check in procedure was very smooth! We checked into a double room for 5 nights. The rooms were in great condition, very clean,... More

We just stayed here one night but enjoyed our stay. The beds were comfy and everything was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was also good, with a massive fridge so plenty of storage ! Only complaint would be that it was quite noisy as there was a school group staying and our room was next to a communal courtyard.

We stayed at coolangatta Yha for one night. I found the staff were awesome very friendly and helpful.Its right beside an airport so obviously there is going to be plane noise, we slept with radio on and it blocked it out 😉 overall very fairly priced, the beach was beautiful . I would def stay here again 😊

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

Hated it. Didnt sleep as everyone outside was way too loud all night! The kitchen was dirty and the room didnt look like the pictures. Super over priced and the worst place i have ever stayed. And the house keepers walked in twice before check out! Disgusting

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

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...
