“Ok for airport transfer but I wouldn't hang around”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

Location is perfect if you are just transiting with air asaia. Right near airport and across the rd from beach. But still only worth one night in my view.

Pros
Table tennis. Nice tv lounge & foxtel
Amicable staff
Free breafast with cereal not just toast
Pretty clean

Cons
I had terrible sleep. Noisy and thin walls airport gets going early in the morning
$32 a night for 6 bed dorm is this the going rate in Australia? Yikes
Gave to pay for Internet and wireless. Boooooh!!

I stayed here for a few nights before flying out of the Gold Coast airport. I chose this location because of the airport ( 5 minute walk!!) but did not find it too out of the way like some other reviews. there is a 4 times daily free shuttle to Rainbow Bay Beach, Snapper Rocks and Tweed Heads.I also took the bus to Surfers Paradise about an hour away on public transit. Cleaning needs to be improved- a colony of flies flew in and died in the washroom overnight and were not cleaned until after noon the next day- but otherwise a good stay.

Room Tip: You may want to ask for a room not facing the airport. Not sure if its quieter on that side, but you...

The hostel is a bit out of town but there is a free shuttle service from the hostel several times a day and there are also regular public buses. If you're using the airport this place is ideal - literally 5 minutes' walk away. Free breakfast is included, as well as free tea and coffee at any time. There is a good kitchen and nice communal/dining area. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we felt at ease here. There was a TV area with lots of sofa, ideal for relaxing in front of a film. Overall we really enjoyed our stay here.

Convenient for airport and beach, but a bit "out of town". Regular busses into town, but rather expensive. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Good facilities - clean and comfortable. Very good value with breakfast included. Well recomended.
