Coolangatta YHA

We are a cosy surf hostel located on the beautiful southern Gold Coast, right across the highway from the beach and just a 7 minute walk from the Gold Coast Airport.
With plenty of lovely shops and restaurants close by, not to mention Bilinga Beach just 5 minutes walk away and a 24 hour bus service across the road, we are in a truly great spot. Though please keep in mind that it's a 7 minute bus ride (or 20 minute bike ride) into the town center from here.
Coolangatta is famous for its amazing surf breaks, beautiful beaches, funky restaurants & bars and breathtaking natural scenery. It's truly one of the most beautiful places in the country, come and live like a local with us!

The owners of our epic little hostel are Ebonie, Erin & Blair and we have 3 other wonderful staff members working with us - Tomas, Ana and Tessa. Our "Volunteer for Accommodation" crew usually consists of about 6 people at one time and it's like being a part of a mismatched nomad family! We do our very best to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome and to show you all a good time! If you get another job or you just want to go on an adventure for a few days you just need to let reception staff know and we'll try our best to work around you :) We're pretty laid back, the Cooly YHA is both a fun and relaxed place to work but we do expect you to put a fair amount of effort into your work, the job you do here is really important to the daily running of our hostel, do right by us and we'll do right by you :)

YHA Coolangatta was the best experience!
The people at the hostel were so nice and I‘ve met a lot of cool people and made a lot of new friends. Erin and Ebonie were so welcoming and helpful, especially, if you had any questions:) The work is also easy, well organized and you get to learn a lot of new stuff! Cooly is such a cool place in Gold Coast with a lot of things to do. Would highly recommend and thank you for having me!

I loved the volunteer and everyone who was a part of it, hosts and other volunteers. From the first day they made me feel at home, we were all like a big family and would recommend to anyone! The tasks are not hard and you have a lot of free time and bond immediately with everyone. A lot of guests came back as they loved the vibe. I had to leave a few days before my actual parting day due to work and everyone was very nice about it. Miss you already guys and thanks for everything!!!
