We stayed here as it was close to the airport and we had a 12 hour stopover on the way to Japan. The hostel is walking distance from the airport (and even dropped us back the next day for free).
The rooms were very basic and didn't feel particularly clean. Same goes for the showers. Towels, sheets, doonas, etc had seen better days. It served its purpose for us, but only just. If you can afford to stay somewhere else, I probably would.
It is very near to airport and as I had a early mrning flight, it really helped. the runway is just opposite the hotel and you can enjoy the tke offs and arrivals from your room. Staff is very friendly and they have drop facilities to the city several times.
It's a place not very clean and not safe at all in my opinion. I will not go back there never...
- Industrial kitchen had lots of cookware. - Good value for money - 10 minute walk to the beach - 10 minute walk to the airport
- Front-desk staff forgot our conversation to extend check-out by 1.5 hours - Kitchen gets hectic in the evening. It is a little cramped - Double bed private room was not as tidy as I would have liked. I found a sock and a food wrapper under the bed
Very close to the airport; convenient facility; free city bus
Lack of shampoo and soap in shower room
Nothing, just the fact that is next to the airport and this is why most of the guest were there.
I had been travelling for 1 month in Australia, stayed in hotels, hostels and van car. This hostel is dirty, smeels bad, the towels and sheets as well. The room was just cleaned when we got there, but there were bugs, the floor was visually dirty, lights no working of course, old Curtains no hiding the light at all... the whole room looked abandoned. That day was specially cold and windy at the point that you couldnt stay quiet in your room even if you had to blankets with you during the DAY it Was also raining so i kindly ask them if the could turn on the heat, well.... There is not heat and the windows of every room are partially opened... So, very bad night. My impression is: people will come because of the location so i dont care at all to provide a minimum service or the basics needs paying 70 dollars for a doble room shared badroom
shuttle bus service and friendly staff
enjoyed our stay apart from noise from other guests, using side gate entrance and frequent banging of doors.
perfectly located for catching an early morning flight
Nothing important but only transport
Was close to the airport, they give you free breakfast and the staff is friendly, willing to help you if you need it
The mattress was a little bit hard
The chic with the dreds who helped me with my boarding pass, you rock. Kudos to you.
The staff were extremely friendly and the free shuttle service was wonderful. Close enough for transport. Right near a nice stretch of beach.
Not many restaurants or supermarkets nearby. Fairly reasonable in price considering free bus service and free breakfast, but there are other places for better value in better locations on the Gold Coast.
Close to airport, convinent for an extra nights stay, affordable, Free transfer into Surface did not end up using as hired car, free use of ping pong table, easy to find, a lot of offers we didn't get a chance to use Surfboard/ Bike hirer very reasonable, lots of info on surrounding attractions.
My partner and I travel quite a lot and have stayed in many backpackers and always in our own room. We found the YHA Coolangatta very clean - close to amenities - plenty of space to find your own little area for privacy - peaceful. thanks
We were catching a plane very early in the morning and were unable to have access to the kitchen.
chilled atmosphere - hammocky seats. signs with precise info everywhere to eliminate questioning and questions asked all the time - seems the management has done this before, cleaned with desinfectants, frequently.the idea of the YHA i sgreat. shuttle rides for free to town.3km, cca 4 times a dat and back. walkable back and forth along lovely seaside path - illuminated or bus every 30mins 24/7 !!! but for 4.50AUD for 6 a min ride. i guess the price for high wages in a rich country. the bus sytems seems inteligently done and runs beyond surfers paradise 24/7
bug screens fallen off windows in a couple of rooms. crap in roof water drain...i guess no sensor for closed windows, enableling people to use ac with an open window, therefore trying to cool down the earth without them even realising its impossibilty and power waste due to their either selfishness for fresh air or zero knowlegde of an AC system
