    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.

    Great Staff, clean and fun vibe. Too close to the airport - so not too good if you want to sleep. You can ask the awesome staff for ear plugs though!

    It was really cold at night and I was shivering all night. Lack of heating facilities makes the place unsuitable for winter, even if it is just a night.

    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.

    Had a good time here in this spacious well run hostel by a friendly efficient team. The hostel has lots of indoor and outdoor recreation space and is close to great beaches.I rate Coolangatta right up there for surf beaches and places to stay on the coast.

    Great hostel. A short walk from the Airport (my main reason for choosing it) - don't waste your money on a taxi. Bus stop is an even shorter walk for taking you up to surfers paradise, and going the other way I enjoyed a couple of leisurely strolls over to Tweed Heads along the beach... Clean room, helpful staff and a good sized kitchen and common room areas. highly recommended.

    It was a time where I just wanted to link together a Saturday activity with an early morning Sunday activity. The hostel and my timetable allowed me time to sit and contemplate between my events. Staff were clear in communication of simple tasks and friendly.

    Great place! Plain and simple and clean, what else could you want? Inexpensive and close enough to walk to the beach, and the airport next door means no alarm clock needed.

    Nice hostel, nice atmosphere. It's really close to the airport; personally I like this thing, but for many others it couldn't be good perhaps. Anyway the beach near the structure is fantastic, and the ocean much more! Coolangatta and Surfers are a little bit far, but if you come here there is one exact reason and you cannot complain. Ciao a tutti, and enjoy the YHA Hostel!

    Loved this YHA - close to the airport & free shuttle bus 4 times a day to the best beaches & shops. Really happy friendly atmosphere. Woza the owner/manager is such a wonderful host. His gorgeous staff of Ebonie Jolene & Matt are so helpful & will make you feel at home! Nothing is too much trouble for them - I can't wait to go back to this fab holiday house! I had a ball & wish I'd stayed longer!

    The staff at this hostel were very friendly and helpful. However, the first room we were in was beside the stairs so whenever someone went up or down it echoed into our room. So no sleep (this was room 10). We requested to be moved which they did without question and the second room we stayed in was better but was backed onto the airport and the ambo station so again no sleep.

    It's right next to the Coolangatta Airport, so convenient! I had an early flight to catch and I was able to just walk to the airport without worrying about transport. Being so close to the airport naturally has a noise issue. I wore earplugs and had no trouble sleeping at all.
