    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.

    Great place for an overnight stay if you've an early morning flight. I'm not sure I'd want to stay here otherwise, but it serves the early-flight crowd really well!

    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.

    There's lots of parking space outside the YHA and it's free, don't have to worry finding parking or limit parking The staff are friendly and not really loud of the aeroplane sounds. The $ of wifi is worth and it's really super fast and the $ package of breakfast looks wonderful. Overall = fabulous

    The staff are great. The location is perfect for the airport. My only concern was some of the guests made it seem like a half-way house for the disenfranchised rather than a travellers' hostel. None did me any harm or behaved badly, just looked ' different'. The young New Zealand guy who drove the bus was especially lovely. I think Cooly's a great place.

    A very reasonable hostel - esp. the private rooms! Not flash, but comfortable - if you don't mind the sound of planes landing and taking off into the wee hours :) Close to the beach. Very frequent bus service to take you up and down the coast.

    I earlier had membership with YHA and stayed last year. Colaroy centre property in Sydney and experience was very good. But this Gold Coast property is pathetic. I had booked it for 3 nights initially and cancelled it at the last minute after seeing the room I was offered. I had to suffer loss of 112 dollars and on top of that had to book expensive accommodation at the last minute.

    very noisy...airport just next door , other resident being quite loud and also having the bedroom next to the stairs was a nightmare as the other resident kept going up and down the stairs and this prevented us from sleeping at night.

    This hostel is practical if you just need a room near the airport because it is right next to it. The staff were friendly and helpful but the room was very small and quite sterile (no atmosphere), and the pillow cases didn't look very clean (had stains on them), the showers and bathroom were clean though.
