Stayed here one night to get to the airport for an early flight, stayed in a woman only six berth dorm, it's a pretty basic place to stay but has what you need. Ample amount of street parking, quite big kitchen as well as indoor and outdoor seating and a quite small pool. The staff were very nice and the room was good for the night. Bathrooms were quite old and no real place to keep your stuff from getting wet, and the only power points are in your locker in the room, a little annoying when you want to charge something but also use it whilst in bed (first world problem) Would stay here again if I was flying out of Coolangatta as you can just walk to the airport which took me less than 15 minutes.

The property requires a full update. Not sure how old the pillows and mattresses are. I don't think they have been replaced in a long time.

Hi. I'm sorry you were locked out. All our room keys open the front door & if there is a problem there is a night manager bell on the front door to alert the night manager. Did you press the night manager bell?

Used for overnight nap before early a.m. flight

Pros: Location - less than 10 mins easy walk from airport.
Cons: Springs on bedroom doors to soften noise when shutting, especiallyy 11 person room opposite Room 2!
Location: N/A on this visit
I used the YHA as I had an early (4a.m.) checkin at Coolangatta I needed a bed simply to nap in, for a few hours, near the airport rather than face a really early morning drive across Surfers Paradise. I booked a single room rather than a shared bunkroom.

Comfortable but convenient lovation

Rooms are basic but beds comfortable. Showers were clean and easily accessible. Love staying here for everything you want before flying out. Very handy to access the airport!

Ok Hostel but I've stayed in way better!!

Cons: Shower facilities. Cleanliness.
Location: Gorgeous beach, awesome walk.
If you don't mind cold showers, dirty blankets and men appearing in the female only dorm in the middle of the night then this is the hostel for you otherwise book somewhere else. Now I know there are always the heaps of people using showers and sometimes the hot water runs out, but at 3.30 am this isn't the case and that was my coldest shower!! The shower heads are all at chest height, great for people who are maybe 5 foot, but not great for anyone else, nowhere to get dressed afterwards either unless you like getting dressed in a wet shower or a toilet your only option is to get next to the person brushing their teeth. Only three of the four showers were able to be used and then when the third went out of action we were down to two. The guy was a mix up but still shouldn't have even been able to happen!! Ever!! Over all really unhappy with this experience, it won't stop me from using hostels again but I definitely won't use this one!!
