    Excellent location, no more than a 10 min walk away from the airport. It makes the travel day much easier when you don’t want line up transportation immediately after landing. It’s an easy walk back to the airport to catch the 777 to Surfers Paradise. One of the cleanest and most comfortable hostels I’ve seen in Australia, with incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The kitchen and fridge storage is massive! Regardless of extremely rude and loud girls in my dorm, I still enjoyed my stay :)

    The position of Coolangatta YHA is perfect for those who plan walking from the airport - who'd love to cross over the road and walk down to a stunning sandy beach - and for those who'd prefer to get a coffee from a nearby petrol station if they haven't brought their own. Only downside is that the toilets are on one floor only for each gender. Women upstairs (didn't matter to me personally), but those with a ground floor room had to go upstairs for the toilets and wash rooms.

    Stayed for a one night stopover. Had everything I needed. Not in a backpacker hotspot so it lacked in atmosphere. Travelers of all ages so you may want to book a gender specific dorm if rooming with older opposite genders bothers you. Cozy.

    Everything was really great about this hostel except that I noticed most of the taps and showers in the shared female bathroom were leaking a fair bit. I tried closing them however it was very difficult and all were still leaking a little. It may be nice for the owners to check this out so water isn’t constantly going to waste unnecessarily.

    Perfect location for the airport. Have stayed here many times for early flights, only 10 min walk. Not much atmosphere. But everyone friendly.

    Only stayed here overnight so didn't use all facilities but the staff were friendly and the hostel was clean. Best lockers in any hostel I've been in as you can charge devices in there and not have to worry about keeping an eye on it. Location was ok. :)

    Very few bathrooms but the main issue was all the people living here being disrespectful to those that were coming in for one or two nights. Also the Wi-Fi is only available in one room downstairs and even then it barely worked.
