    Few and small lockers inside the room. Kitchen without an oven and few accessories like microwave, etc... Reception not 24h. Internet terrible, slow, not free wi-fi. Location far away from everything.

    Spacious, and especially convenient if you are only doing stopover in gold coast, walking distance to airport.

    The hostel is very close to the Airport and the beach, but not to much more, but the bus stop is just across the street. It's relaxed and clean though, and the staff (especially a girl in reception) was extremely friendly and helpful!!

    Disappointed that you have to pay an extra for everything (internet, lockers, luggage storage...). In 2014, it should be normal to have internet included when paying for a hostel! Room and facilities clean and ok, but nothing special. Kitchen not well equipped, no mugs, only a few tiny glasses. Good location if you have to get a flight. Otherwise too far from town.

    Everything you could ask for, for the price - clean facilities in good condition, simple but nice furnishings, very relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff, convenient location (in walking distance to airport, beach & bus stop, plus a free shuttle bus), and surprisingly quiet and not crowded. Swimming pool was a bonus. Only downside was that we didn't have any hot water in the shower one morning.

    The hostel is quite far out of Coolangatta but the hostel runs a courtesy van a couple of times a day into the town. When I was at the hostel there were a lot of people over the age of forty five, so if you are down for a party, this might not be the place for you. The place is well kept however and there is a pool. The beach is only across the road and again the Airport is conveniently close.

    The hostel is convenient, comfortable and friendly. I stay here for a night during transit from Asia to NZ. The advantage is, for the price of peanut - I get cashew nut here. It saves the hassle of staying in Sydney airport at night. Else a night's stay in Sydney hostel costs high train fare to and fro from airport. In YHA Gold Coast, you walk to hostel from airport saving transit expenses. Great.

    It would appear that there hve been a number of changes at the hostel since I last used it. No free breakfast now, Cannot get into the back door of the hostel from the airport, a restriction I found most disconcerting to find out about late at night on the Sunday of the G20.

    Booked this hotel so i can catch early morning flight, and that's the only reason. The other pluses: clean bathroom, just nice amenities, great reception. Here's the minuses:Got a private room in the 1st floor, exactly in front of the swimming pool. The wall is so thin i heard all of the noises outside (that includes two ladies involved in a cat fight around 11pm, yelled and swore to each other)

    If you need a place to stay on the Gold Coast that is within walking distance of Coolangatta Airport and convenient to the southern end of the coast and the beaches, the YHA is ideal.

    Access to airport was brilliant. Good meal and friendly staff at hotel just down the road. Comfortable bed. Had it not been for large noisy group of school children (arriving very noisily at around 10:30/11pm) our nights sleep would have been good.

    I always stope over this hostel when frying from the Gold Coast Airport. Great location - 10 mins walk from the airport and accessible to nice beaches. The facility is not new but it is definitely a good value for money.

    I found this hostel to be very relaxed and welcoming. I was pleased that there were so many people around my own age there too. The staff were exceptionally friendly and accepting of everyones individual personalities. I really appreciated the YHA bus that commuted to town 4 times a day too. Very handy. My room was isolated in a courtyard, so I truly was grateful for the privacy I needed.

    It's good location to stay one night for an early morning or late night flight to Gold Coast airport but the city(surfer's paradise) is quite far if you stay around downtown. Staff were friendly and rooms + facilities were clean.

    Our second stay at this excellent YHA. Great location to the beach and excellent facilities. Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Well laid out and very clean kitchen with good facilities. Excellent outdoor areas for relaxing and eating, together with swimming pool. Great indoor lounge with large TV. Fabulous and very friendly staff. A real pleasure to stay here. We will be back.

    The hostel was small and friendly. Staff were always about and would help if needed. The hostel has the best fridge I have ever seen in a YHA. Kitchen and bathrooms were thoroughly cleaned every day. We would stay there again.
