    Unfortunately our visit coincided with the Cyclone Marcia... and the hostel, while quite nice, is intended for warm weather, not big storms. While not uncomfortable, it was far from ideal. A perfect base for the airport though!

    Times have changed : The last time I stayed at a YHA Hostel was many years ago in the UK. Everybody had to complete a chore . Help with the housework or help preparing meals. Everybody sat and ate meals together , this resulted in a very friendly atmosphere, sharing experiences and making friends. Now guests do their own thing and really clean up their mess leaving a sink full of dirty pots.

    Inconvenient location - only close to the beach, far away from amenities, located on high way and behind airport - much noise pollution. Very basic and unappealing facilities inc. kitchen, dining room, bathroom and common room. Courtesy bus' last round in 5PM so you have to catch a taxi home if you wish to stay in town for dinner - taxi about $12. Some nice staff but rarely found at the desk.

    I booked to stay for 1 day & then decided to stay for a week! Really friendly place to stay - handy to everything- Ebonie Joelene & Pippa are the best helpful staff. Owner/Manager Woza is the perfect host. Walking distance to the airport & fabulous beaches. I loved the free shuttle bus 4 times a day - great service! Cooly YHA ticks all the boxes for me! I will definitely be back again! Thanx Guys

    My stuff was moved (and interfered with) and my bed taken on the first night by guy not even in that dorm. Have stayed here twice - both times marred by yobbo Aussies, who are either abusive, belligerent or both. The dorm door was left wide open so security was poor. Fans grotty - need cleaning. Staff helpful and excellent, courtesy coach also good. Next to airport, good for overnight layover.

    Hostel is literally walking distance from the airport so for one or two nights without a car is fine. Beach is right across the street (very very nice) and they also have a nice pool. Showers and toilets for the ladies are upstairs so depending on where your room is it might be a little far. Town is 15 walking. Overall it was good.

    We enjoyed the stay at Kirra beach YHA. The host was friendly, easy going and helpful. The location is excellent as its a 5minute walk to the beach and a 10minute walk to the airport which is also an international airport. There is a great cafe 5mins walk away.The rooms are clean and beds comfy. If you want to stay you will enjoy.

    It is very good only this particular visit was now as good as it could have been because of the attatude of 2 other guests that were there at the same time. But that is of coarse not the fault of the hostel. And I would certainly recomend to other travellers. And they not the younger customers.

    Walking distance to airport. Good location for either heading south to Coolangatta town centre or north to Palm Beach or Burleigh Heads. Real beach atmosphere away from business of Surfers. Great staff with professional work ethic and level of service, not to mention friendly. Highly recommended for light travellers looking for a getaway.

    The most outstanding feature of this hostel is the many courtyards and open space for mixing and partying. We were there for Xmas Day, but the crowd there were very subdued and not into sharing the Xmas spirit, which was no reflection on the hostel - just the people that happened to be there at this time.

    The hostel is very close to the Airport and the beach, but not to much more, but the bus stop is just across the street. It's relaxed and clean though, and the staff (especially a girl in reception) was extremely friendly and helpful!!

    Disappointed that you have to pay an extra for everything (internet, lockers, luggage storage...). In 2014, it should be normal to have internet included when paying for a hostel! Room and facilities clean and ok, but nothing special. Kitchen not well equipped, no mugs, only a few tiny glasses. Good location if you have to get a flight. Otherwise too far from town.
