    Staff were fantastic...only 1 was having an off morning! Too bad they were @the front desk! The hostel is an older one with a small pool, shabby (not chic!) furniture...but a fun crew for staff! $5 pizza from Dominos delivered to the hostel on Tues. nite was a great feature.

    I have been to Cooly YHA many times & I keep going back because of the friendly helpful staff. Woza (owner/manager) is the perfect host & Ebonie, Joelene & Pippa are the best receptionists on the Gold Coast! It is close to the best beaches & airport. Free shuttle bus pick up/drop off 4 times a day is a wonderful service. The atmosphere is great with a really cool vibe-happy backpackers happy days!

    Good place to stay in goldie if surfing, saving money, beaching and next to airport, you can walk there. A bit far from town and shopping but hostel has free shuttles and city bus goes by al the time. Staff is very helpfull and will make sure you have a good stay.

    Staff were friendly. Website not updated. I've stayed at many HI hostels globally, and assumed that because YHA is under the same banner that it would be the same standard. I was disappointed (and uncomfortable!) that there were not proper windows in our room, just small louvres at the top, which made the room really hot. I would ask for a room with a ceiling fan above the bed next time.

    Quiet and close to the airport, very clean. If you have your own transport it is ideal for a cheap gold coast holiday, only draw back no ensuite.

    I flew from perth to christcurch with my partner and I was refused entry put on a plane and dropped off in coolongatta 4200ks from home with very little money and no way of contacting family or friends. The lady at the hostel (ebony I think) went out of her way not only to make sure I had accommodation but assisted me in contacting my partner and making sure I had all I needed. Rating AAA thanku

    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.
