    I stayed for two nights and had a very uncomfortable mattress (sunken mattress at the hip level) to sleep on. They changed it for my second night but there was dirt on the internal room floors underfoot and the sophas in the loungeroon were very uncomfortable. The staff were really friendly and took an interest in every person. There was not tea and coffee facilities available at night. It was a very average backpackers, not at all what I expected from YHA.

    Very convenient beach location where there are nice walking path and convenient public transport access. Only 500m from the airport so very convenient for very early morning flights. Day staff are very friendly.

    The atmosphere is friendly & happy.Great position with a courtesy bus 4 times a day to drop you off & pick you up from the best beaches & shops. You can walk from the airport. The staff are the best! Ebonie Joelene & Pip are SO helpful with tours & travel. Woza the owner/manager is the perfect host! You are sure to have a great stay at the Cooly YHA! Big thank you to all the staff! I will be back for sure!

    Despite assurances, reception staff failed to note my name, venue and timing for the last pick-up of the day so I was left waiting in the freezing cold at the pick-up point until I rang YHA and learned that I had been forgotten. No pick-up options were offered so I had to make the 40 minutes walk back in the cold night. Dorm room was messy and a locker door was missing.

    One of the, if not the, best hostel/s I've stayed in. Great staff, great location (lack of proximity to grocery stores aside, but the beach just across the road more than makes up for that), great facilities (including table tennis and a pool), great rooms (not one but three paintings hanging in my single-bed room, plus a chest of drawers and a desk and chair; I'm telling you, you get more than you pay for), and an overall "harmony" to the place, it really feels like it was designed from the ground up as a welcoming beach backpackers, rather than, as so many hostels feel, repurposed and retrofitted into one.

    It is close to the airport, which saves money and time for transport; but if you are coming or going to Brisbane, it may be a little difficult as there is no direct train service; the best option is taking the shuttle bus from the airport ( e.g. linktransfer for one)

    This hostel is super handy if you have an early flight. It is an old building but it is well maintained. The staff was friendly and kind all the times. We stayed during the winter and the night was extremely cold, the room felt as cold as sleeping outside, so be aware of that!

    The hostel was in need of repairs and renovation eg the exterior 'YHA' sign was damaged. The over all atmosphere felt a bit depressing, staff were going through the motions. The location near the airport is poor but they do have a courtesy van.

    YHA Coolandatta next to Gold Coast Airport is cleaner, friendlier, and better value for money. Wonderful stay that money can buy. Close to airport to catch the flight, with friendly and cooperative staff and a clean washroom and kitchen every time it is used, YHA - Kirra Beach is the best I ever stayed when compared to many others.

    The hostel is near the airport but far away from city. But I need to catch a flight in the next day, so it is good location for me. I am so appeciate that the hostel offers free shuttle bus to town and beach and pick up rom those location as well. The hostel offers $5 breakfast. It would be perfect if it offers free breakfast.
