Basic and Budget”
Great for a quick stop, basic but clean and staff are friendly. Not loud considering mainly backpackers staying there.
Away from. The schoolies area of the gold coast”
Nice location grocery store near by as well as an OK shopping center. Kitchen supplies good even toster oven so can make pizza. Few to many long term guest though making this like there home so storage and frigrator space not so good, also can't bring in your own booze..
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.
Excellent value for a quick stay”
I just wanted one night before catching a plane, and this was perfect, good shower, and bed, and great places to eat close by...
Second stay here. Brilliant”
Great place to stay, have stayed here twice now. Great staff, location and near the beach
If you love sleeping with Loud DJ party, it’s your place ”
Too noisy to be hotel
You pretty much sign your life away to start. Steep fine threats. Everything is dirty. No AC anywhere. At least the balcony is nice.
Close to the beach, around the corner to main Coolangatta amenities & eating places, right next to bus stop to airport BUT disappointing AC was dysfunctional
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.
just stay there for 2 nights as it is very near to airport to catch my early flight. The room i was assiged to abit messy, abit too small for 6paxs, the screw on my bulk bed was abit loose. 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.
Warm, cozy, lovely!”
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!
It was good but a little noisy”
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 ;-(
Hostel is right in front of the bus stop. Was nice of the in charge to let us in even tho we were there way before the check in time as we just checked out of another apartment. Just a short 1n stay so that we could catch our flt out the next morning.. nice balcony area for us to have our meals and to simply chill in the chilling weather. Simple facilities to last our night. Definitely will come back again
Very helpful in stressful times”
arrived during cyclone oswald and the sands hostel had suffered damage from the high winds and rain and the place was consequently flooding. staff were very helpful in finding us another place to stay and promised to refund our money as soon as power was back on.
Great management ”
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!
Good loation in Coolangatta”
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.
nice and clean”
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.
Good location and helpful staff”
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.
