    Good location for Bilinga Beach and the walk to Coolangatta to makes you wonder why you feel the need to catch the flight from the Gold Coast airport the next morning. Dorms are hot and stuffy in summer.

    The location is good, just about 10 minutes walk from the Gold Coast Airport. The reception staff is very friendly. We travelled to Brisbane city & Surfers Paradise. It is just about 3 minutes walk to get the bus. Although the facilities are limited, value of money is ok.

    Loved staying here - Woza (manager/owner) is a perfect host to make you feel at home. Ebonie Matt & Jolene are the happiest & most helpful staff I have ever met! Walk from the airport so easy. Courtesy shuttle bus pick up & drop off 4 times a day at different beaches is a fabulous service. Beach across the road. There are lovely gardens to relax in & just read a book. Such a happy place to be!

    Stayed here because of it's proximity to the Gold Coast Airport (for an early morning flight.) It was aa perfect budget choice. The staff gave me info on where to have dinner, and the hotel's van took me near that destination. It's close to the beach, too, although I had no opportunity to enjoy that. I would stay here again.

    Much better to be found... airport terminal not easily accessed, despite being next to the airport. Over priced and very modest. No food available only vending machines and a good walk to the shops. Bus drop off for the benefit of staff no guests.

    the woman at the desk helped me book a cooking class and it was a small world, because she once worked with the same people. she was very helpful since i had no mobile phone and was only getting answer phones that wanted a number to call back. my only complaint about this hostel was that most people in coolangatta only remembered the old location, right on the beach, which is better

    This was an overnight stop for me so its proximity to the international airport was perfect. The very friendly receptionist at the hostel booked my early morning taxi for the airport ($AU8) I could have easily walked had I not had 60kg luggage . Subway is within walking distance.

    This hostel is close to transport, beach, and shops, and is not far from the hinterland. However as it is also right at the airport and next to a main road it is not a quiet retreat. You can't have everything.

    Close enough to the airport to get a good view of planes taking off and landing, and, an easy walk to the nearby great beaches which went for miles (kilometers) in either direction, we found this Hostel to be a great place to stay.
