    really friendly and good staff, near the beach.would definitely stay again.only thing that was a little annoying was the intense smell of jet fuel before planes flew off as it was near the airport.i heard that jet fuel fumes are harmful to the body.

    Mattress had sand in it that came through the sheet. Slept in sand. Very noisy from guests, walls are thin.

    Good airport location, but a bit far from supermarkets. Use shuttle or nearby gas station. Used hostel for transit inbound from Kuala Lumpur and next with AA express bus to Brisbane (airport on request only)

    Value for money. Plus the courtesy shuttles save real money for the budget traveller. Ambience causes to return again and again.

    A convenient and well organised, friendly YHA right next to the Gold Coast airport. I walked there and back so easily, 500 metres along the service road, turning left as you leave the airport terminal. There was very little noise from the small airport and I slept without any problems. Home made food on offer was delicious and a generous helping. The courtesy bus takes residents to four drop off spots for surfing and shopping, as well as the Greyhound bus stop for further travel experiences. I would definitely stay again.

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
