    Nice hostel. Liked the free shuttle bus to Cooly.

    I felt the hostel was very clean and staff very helpful and friendly. There was adequate transport and proximity to beach. There was some noise from the airport but the hostel itself was very quiet. A nice relaxing stay.

    The hostel is well located to Gold Coast airport, otherwise it is at least 45 minutes from anything else which is worth doing.. Luckily for us - we only stayed here for one night prior to our flight. Although the bathroom facilities were relatively clean, the smell of them wasn't pleasant whatsoever. As for the beds, you may as well have slept on the floor as you could feel the metal mesh underneath you. Otherwise, the staff were friendly and the kitchen was well equipped!

    This is a fabulous place to stay - walking distance from the airport. There is a free courtesy bus that takes you to all the sensational beaches & shops 4 times a day - pick up & drop off. Such a great service. Coolangatta has so much to offer in shopping restaurants & entertainment. The staff at the YHA of Woza (manager & owner) Ebonie Joelene & Jordan are just the best! They are so helpful & informative - they can show you the best places to go. Beaches are beautiful & weather is perfect! Enjoy!

    Good hostel if you need to be close to the airport otherwise I would recommend to go somewhere else.

    As a solo traveller this hostel was quite out the way and didn't have much atmosphere. Perhaps an error on my behalf as I should have researched more into it before hand. Some of the staff were really friendly but some were just interested in chatting to other staff. A lot of older guests who were all lovely but not ideal for a young traveller wanting to get to know other travellers. Nice relaxing town so good for a timeout.

    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.
