It was nice!
Staff and managers were awesome!
The hostel is not in a perfect location, but you can get everywhere with the bus and we still have the beach right across the street 🙂

No words to describe my experience here. The hostel has great facilities such a swim pool, ping pong, snooker, jenga, cards, books, surfboards, skateboards, bike and much more, is ridiculously close to the beach and the job is easy. The staff is incredible, very flexible with the working hours and is a huge bonus to have Biscuit around (the cutest hostel dog). Thank you so much for the opportunity, I learned a lot from everyone and I recommend this place to everyone that wants to work in a chill environment and spent your free afternoons enjoying the best that Gold Coast has to offer.

I had a amazing time working at YHA Cooly. Everyone was so nice to me and I felt like home since the beginning. The hostel has many good activities to do, like pool, table tennis, card games, jenga, movie night, also a beautiful beach just crossing the road. The job is quite easy and if you have any questions the managers (or any other staff) will be glad to help you.

Thank you so much for everything, I gonna miss everyone!
