Please be advised that repairs are being conducted on the Balcony of the Hostel which is a result of damage caused by Cyclone Oswald in January. The Builders will be working from 0730 until 1530, Monday to Friday until completion of the job. Balcony rooms will be closed during this period but we will have Female & Male dorm rooms as well as our private rooms available which will be away from the main noise and disruption. I will be doing everything possible to minimise the impact of these repairs to our guests and live onsite to assist with any problems or complaints that may arise during the repair process. • You must be 18 years of age or older to book/stay at the Hostel. • Foreign passport required to book/stay at the Hostel.

About Coolangatta Sands Hostel
The Coolangatta Sands Hostel is brilliantly located in the heart of Coolangatta, the very first stop on the Gold Coast once you cross the border into Queensland from New South Wales… Just up from Byron bay.
Coolangatta is home to Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore the worlds surfing champions and their favourite surfing breaks like Snapper Rocks and D-Bah which can be found directly across the road.
We are the closest hostel on the Gold Coast to the beach. Our hostel boasts modern new facilities, The Lounge, chill-out bar, Kirrabelle Brasserie and sports bar. It is a perfect hostel for anyone keen to chill out, surf, take on the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast, or just enjoy the great view of Kirra Point whilst relaxing on the day beds upstairs on the hostels terraced balcony.
For those a bit more adventurous we highly recommend The Coolangatta Adventure Crew for all your activities. Diving and fishing around the Cook Island Marine Park, surfing lessons from the world’s best surf coach or taking the plunge with the local Gold Coast Skydive one of the few places in Australia you are allowed to land on the beach!
