          5mins by bus to the airport

          This hostel was centrally located, with many food joints nearby, and even a supermarket just 1 bock away. Facilities include a games room and a bar. The kitchen was big and quite clean. The guest rooms were quite new and clean also. The bus stop for surfside buses are within 2mins walk. There is a free shuttle service to the airport during office hours and after hours, the public bus can take you there. The hostel was also within 5mins to the beach, which have got a good view of Brisbane skyline.

          Stayed tues 27/3/18 -wed 28/3/18. I arrived about 4.5 hours before could check in at 2pm and girl on reception let me put my stuff in luggage storage room however didn’t offer me any further info on what there was to do in the local area. I found it myself. There’s a really nice beach which I went to and snapper rocks. Hostel was close by to all the shops. Kitchen is very very small, you find yourself climbing on top of each other just to try and cook. The outside space was great for eating, just sitting and relaxing and chatting to others. Each room has doors which open up to a balcony. Got very loud on the balcony the one night I was there so be prepared for that. You can literally hear people’s conversations word for word even though your room doors for the balcony are shut.

          Everything was normal for staying one night. But there was terrible thing. A staff who works at night got double paid. I already booked the stayment but she told me my booking payment is only for holding. I tried to explain it's impossible bcuz I used this app many times before but she said same thing. When I ask again to another staff next morning, she told me I double paid so got refund for me. I want the staff has to be trained correctly. I felt very uncomfortable by her.

I had inform thw front desk staff, nobody bother to fix it. abit dangeroys if those who are sleeping on the top bed, any time may fall. Overall, ok , will be better if tgey can improve the housekeeping.

          This place is good if you are a night owl and want to be at the party all night, as the hotel is right above the main bar in town. we however, stayed here because of its location to the airport but didn't enjoy it. We tried to have an early night due to our early morning flight but were unsuccessful. Not only could we hear all the noise from downstairs, but the hallways echoed terribly and people stayed up late talking in them, so we heard everything.

          it s a good place to stay if you're in your 20's. it's clean and most of all, the staff are very helpful. the accommodation is above a pub, so expect some noise on the week end. i actually booked a female dorm, but was got a coed dorm instead. agoda says check in is 11am but its really 12pm. the backpacker is located in a convenient area for eating and shopping and most of surfing!

          The room is big and clean. It has balony outside the room so you can lie down there to enjoy the sunshine or reading. It is in Coolangatta central, and the local bus stop is just 5mins walk. The buses toward Gold Coast Airport and Surfers' Paradise. It is quite convineince. The only disadvantage is too far from Surfers' Paradise. It's nearly 70-80mins if you take the bus.

          I was forced into an overnight stay somewhere near Gold Coast airport due to a delayed flight arrival. This hotel was only 2km and a $10 taxi fare from the airport. I was able to check in at approx 10pm and I was given a 4 bed dprm to myself. The room had Air Con, balcony and a lockable (take your own padlock) cupboard. The room was clean as were the toilets and showers. Both the night and day receptionists were very helpful and I was able to leave my bags, locked up, for a couple of hours after check out.

          Clean, comfortable, near a nice beach

          I stayed here one night during a short stopover. As I wasn't really backpacking I didn't bring things like a towel, padlock, etc. but these were provided on request at no charge. I was staying mid-week and the place was pretty quiet. A decent free breakfast was provided. The nearby beach is nice and quiet and other beaches are easily accessible by bus. My only complaint is that the advertised free airport shuttle wasn't running on the day of my departure as it was the manager's day off. This made it a bit more difficult to get to the airport (by bus) because of all my luggage.
