It was good but a little noisy

1.Good meal-they offer some bread and butter.
It was a little noisy and unclean. But their security is not bad and you can use free-Wifi at level 1. Staff was kind as well. But they open their reception after 8A.M. so I couldn't get my deposit ;-(

Noisey but a good stay

1Location good for surfers 2close supermarket 3close to the beach
All is good just the cleaniness of the room. (Quite dusty for places hardto reach, like the window tops and cupboards top) the reception guy. I think he's manager of the place. Rude but at least he get things done.

Good for short stay

Free breakfast, free airport shuttle and air-conditioned room
The room that we stayed was quite smelly of other people's clothes, and the air-conditioned room made the smell stronger. The bunk bed is pretty tough, not much squeaky sound was made, and they even have a tv room that has xbox in it. The continental breakfast is good, but the wifi signal is quite bad in the rooms.

No-frills backpackers

clean sheets, sufficient toilets, organized activities
Really no frills, even the blanket is just a sheet of cloth which is sufficient in this season, but definitely not during colder periods.

Cosy, convenient and near to Coolangatta beach.

I'm a beach lover and the beach is just a stone's throw away from hostel. restaurant downstairs, mall nearby, shops all around, very convenient. McLean st buss stop is just steps away frm the entrance
I enjoyed myself staying there for three nights. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The beaches nearby were too awe-inspiring as I'm a beach lover. You can walk frm hostel to Snapper rocks. Various restaurants along the coast, you won't starve to death in the hostel. You can also order food from the restaurant downstairs. Perfect location as the bus stop[McLean st] is just steps away from hostel entrance. As the hostel is so near to the beach, its normal to see sands all around especially in the bathroom and rooms. But.. the overall is just fine. the staff clean the room and clear the rubbish bin on daily basis. They will provide bread ans various spread in the kitchen, milk in the refrigerator, you can buy food to store there too. After cooking, you can find a spot on the balcony to enjoy your breakfast to kick start your day.

Warm, cozy, lovely!

Near Coolangatta Beach, Restaurants nearby, Friendly service
the staffs were very friendly, there's a kitchen to share and bathroom to share but i got no problem with that at all. water heater, bread for breakfast were provided every morning in the kitchen. The hostel located near to restaurants and Coolangatta beach, walk further you can reach Snapper rocks. Love the tranquility and the service. Worth a stay!
