I've had an amazing time working at Cooly YHA! During my stay, I've met incredible people and made great friends, both staff and guests. The hostel has a great vibe and Coolangatta is the place to be if you're looking for a chilled place with good surfing spots. Although the hostel's owner was very strict and sometimes rude with the staff, the hosts were very friendly and patient throughout my whole stay. Overall, I tottally recommend working at Cooly YHA! it was an experience I'll never forget.
We are a cosy surf hostel located in beautiful Coolangatta on the Gold Coast, right across the highway from the beach and just a 10 minute walk from the GC airport. We have bike and board hire, movie and BBQ nights and a free courtesy bus that drives in to the town center 4 times a day. Coolangatta is famous for its amazing surf breaks, beautiful beaches, funky restaurants & bars and breathtaking natural scenery.About the host
