    I felt the hostel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. There was adequate transport and proximity to beach. There was some noise from the airport but the hostel itself was very quiet. A nice relaxing stay.

    The hostel is well located to Gold Coast airport, otherwise it is at least 45 minutes from anything else which is worth doing.. Luckily for us - we only stayed here for one night prior to our flight. Although the bathroom facilities were relatively clean, the smell of them wasn't pleasant whatsoever. As for the beds, you may as well have slept on the floor as you could feel the metal mesh underneath you. Otherwise, the staff were friendly and the kitchen was well equipped!

    This is a fabulous place to stay - walking distance from the airport. There is a free courtesy bus that takes you to all the sensational beaches & shops 4 times a day - pick up & drop off. Such a great service. Coolangatta has so much to offer in shopping restaurants & entertainment. The staff at the YHA of Woza (manager & owner) Ebonie Joelene & Jordan are just the best! They are so helpful & informative - they can show you the best places to go. Beaches are beautiful & weather is perfect! Enjoy!

    As a solo traveller this hostel was quite out the way and didn't have much atmosphere. Perhaps an error on my behalf as I should have researched more into it before hand. Some of the staff were really friendly but some were just interested in chatting to other staff. A lot of older guests who were all lovely but not ideal for a young traveller wanting to get to know other travellers. Nice relaxing town so good for a timeout.

    There are a number of quick food outlets 2 minutes walk from YHA including the servo for easy hot and cold food. Plus a hotel and bottle shop. YHA courtesy van or the commercial bus to Coolie for supermarket shopping is so easy its no hassle! Super multi outdoor areas to choose from to relax or chat etc. Great pool. Crystal clear.

    Excellent location, walking distance from airport and to the highway for buses to and from Surfers Paradise. Plenty of parking if you arrive by car. I'll definitely make it my home base when I visit the Gold Coast.

    The hostel is well located - on the one hand its just a few minutes to the beach but on the other hand also just a few minutes to the airport what means that its quiet loud early in the morning. So we would just recommend it for a short stay if you are waiting for your next flight. The rooms and the kitchen were not clean at all. We have already been to other YHA Hostel which we would really recommend because the were clean. The stuff was friendly and we really liked the free shuttle to coolangatta centre.

    Always my go-to place for staying overnight whenever I have to fly out in the morning from Coolangatta Airport. Great location - the beach is just across the road! The rooms are decent and affordable and the staff are welcoming and friendly. Great place to get to know people from all over the world if you so wish.

    The staff is very friendly and helpful and the overall atmosphere is good. It's nice that there are single rooms for those of us travelling alone. Unfortunately my room was not very soundproof so I didn't get much sleep (despite earplugs). The hostel is very(!) close to the airport which is convenient if you are arriving/departing by flight. The hostel is not very close to town (about 35 min walk), but there is a courtesy bus that leaves a couple of times every day. There are also local buses that will take you into town.

    I spent 6 nights here. Convenient location and close to transport, beach and airport. I liked it being a bit quieter than Surfers. Staff are friendly and clean facilities. I stayed in a single room and could still chat to people over a meal. I will definitely stay here again!

    worst night of my life. worst hotel ever. Noise until 1 am due to inconsiderate australian teenagers who brought alcohol in the premises. some girls complained about thefts the next morning.Although these young people breach the rules of the hostel, they were not asked to leave by the hotel manager who came to scold them a few times. we could hear people talking in the other rooms.
