Liked: I stayed here as I was catching a flight from the Gold Coast Airport early in morning. It's a fair way out of Surfers Paradise but there are buses right out the front door.

Disliked: No air conditioner, only a fan so it might get hot in summer.

21 July 2013 Xing Hui would recommend this property

Liked: Staff was friendly. We booked a twin room and got upgraded to a family room which was really spacious for two persons. The family room also faced the swimming pool which was nice. The best thing about the hostel is that it's really near the airport and the beach. Otherwise, it's a distance from everywhere else.

Disliked: The building's slightly run down and the beds were kinda sandy.

Liked: It's great to be able to simply walk on over after arriving at the airport! Frequent daily shuttle service to beaches & shops is also a very nice extra.

Disliked: I stayed in an 8-bed dorm so it's hard to get a decent night's sleep.People arrive late at night & then some people get up very early for an early morning flight.

Liked: The Location right next to the airport and close to the beach is brilliantly convenient. Dorms and bathrooms are basic but adequate. Also it has a pool and the atmosphere is chilled out.

Disliked: There was somebody operating a very niosy machine on the property next door at 4am - but the hostel can't really be blamed for that. There was a mature-aged man in my dorm with a lot of paraphernalia, who seemed to be living in the hostel. He said he'd been there for about a year. This seems a bit wierd to me.

Liked: The staff here are totally helpful, the free breakfast is a bonus and for anyone with a flight from the Gold Coast Airport, the Coolly YHA is ideal as it is only a five minute walk to the airport.

Disliked: It's about a 40 minute walk from the centre of Coollangatta, but the hostel do minibus runs four times a day so it's not a problem to get into town.
