    A convenient and well organised, friendly YHA right next to the Gold Coast airport. I walked there and back so easily, 500 metres along the service road, turning left as you leave the airport terminal. There was very little noise from the small airport and I slept without any problems. Home made food on offer was delicious and a generous helping. The courtesy bus takes residents to four drop off spots for surfing and shopping, as well as the Greyhound bus stop for further travel experiences. I would definitely stay again.

    Spent some time at the beach, then took advantage of the courtesy drop off and pick up service to Coolangatta. Great and convenient place to stay for an early morning flight.

    The room is large and clean and the staff are extremely nice and friendly. Location is OK for me (a bus to broadbeach takes about 30 mins) but it is a bit noisy when planes are taking off. The game room is nice but it is noisy when people are playing table tennis at night.

    Friendly staff Clean & tidy (clean sheets and pillow covers, tidy kitchen with plates, utensils there to use, cleanish bathrooms) Reasonable price for area Very close to Gold Coast Airport and petrol station/food takeways. Only trouble is it is hard to find, as there is two Coolangatta Road's in the area (but that's not YHA's fault anyway).

    Hostel is situated between Coolangatta International/Domestic Airport located to the west, and the old Tugun-Coolangatta main Coastal Highway to the east, two high-level noise sources that compromise un-interrupted sleep. Main annoyance from the airport is the take-off noise from light planes at night. Advantage of this hostel is its location: within 600m walking distance of the airport!

    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.
