nice and clean”

price and location

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 loation in Coolangatta”

Local bus stop is just 5 mins walk

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.

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!

Great Hostel”

Relaxing, Clean and stuffs are friendly

Coolangatta itself is not a over crowded beach so you can really enjoy the view and rest on the beach without any unnecessary interruption. This hostel is just 3 minutes walk to the beach and there are quite alots of nice cafe around. Local people there are very friendly. Hostel is clean. One thing I really like this hostel is their balcony. You can actually cook you dinner and enjoy it at an open air dining area. However, this hostel does not have lift thus do not bring too many luggage bag. ;)

Good Enough for a Transit or Short Stay”

good location, very accessible, good food places nearby

We stayed for a night because it was so near the Gold Coast airport, since we had a morning flight to catch. On a bus (Surfside 761), it was merely 8 minutes to the airport in the wee morning with no traffic. There are alot of cheap shops and food places to visit, as the location is merely packed with it. And you can start your day strolling at Queen Elizabeth Park, or walk your way down as you soak the sun and breeze towards Point Danger! Pretty awesome sight and the weather was amazing (to us, of course) during the time we stayed there (October 2012). The bed was a little hard and uncomfortable, and the sheets were too thin so we slept in cold, but other than that, the room has been maintained well and clean. Even the shared toilets and somking lounges were neat and clean at all times. This is a good place for backpackers as they provide a great variety of activities, deals and even charitable/volunteer opportunities for their patrons. The Currumbin Widlife Santuary (along with their Yanguwah dinner) is just a few stops away and it is definitely a must-try.

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.

Clean place to stay and good location but noisy”

The rooms and bathrooms were clean, and the location was close to Coolangatta beach and the town.

I stayed at the hostel for 1 night only, this was my first time staying at a hostel so I was a little apprehensive. I stayed in a female shared dorm and there was 1 other lady staying in the room. Overall I was surprised to see that the rooms were clean and the bathroom was also quite clean. Other reviewers have noted that it is quite noisy with traffic outside and from the bar downstairs and this is true, but as I was pretty tired I was able to sleep through most of it. Overall for a one night stay this place was fine. I was told that there was a free breakfast but I didn't eat there.

Ok If you are only looking for a bed ”

We stayed a Friday night. Linen clean. Room old and basic. Bed comfy. Walls are thin therefore room is quite noisy. (Noise from pub patrons and & guests walking the corridors in accomodation). Weekday stay probably better as less people in pub. . Central location. No parking included. Shared facilities basic & clean. We paid $67 a double - which is cheap. You get what you pay for. Ear plugs a good idea.
