    Very friendly, the kitchen was quite messy but was great venue

    Staff was friendly, location was a 10 minute walk from the Gold Coast airport. Atmosphere was great, with people watching movies and playing ping pong.

    The room smells, sheets and pillows are dirty, I covered the bed with towels so I could sleep.

    I got what I paid for. Would maybe stay again under same conditions.

    Nearby the airport but quite noisy due to loud aircraft noise even past midnight. The rest of the facilities are average except for shared flush toilets and baths that needed to be constantly cleaned as users are not doing self-cleaning after usage.

    However the staff discouraged me from booking a taxi despite having to leave at 4:15am, due to close proximity to airport and response of taxi drivers to a short ride. Did a dry run to the airport and it would've taken around 20mins - I booked a taxi for ease and safety and the taxi driver was fine.

    Too far from town and too close to the airport. Very noisy and walls quite thin so can hear every word in neighbouring rooms and doors slamming all night.

    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.
