I highly recommend this experience. Everything was perfect, from the location to the work passing by the people working and staying there! I really can’t find any negative points about this experience except leaving it. So if you’re looking for a nice place to stay on the Gold Coast for not much work and to have plenty of time to go to the beach, YHA Coolangatta is the place to be!

I recommend you 100% to go there. You have really a lot of free time, the hostel is good located (close from the beach and bus stop), the place is chill but you’re easily in the city. There are a lot of beautiful view in the area. The work is mainly cleaning and housekeeping, so nothing too hard. The hostel is very cool (pool, good kitchen, pig pong,…) and you meet a lot of nice people!

My experience was reeeally great!!!! The hostel has this family environment where, even sharing the room with other 8 volunteers, you feel home. The room is huge! The lovely owners are so sweet and flexible when it comes to changing shifts or any other help the i needed.
The hostel is clean, organized and yes, it's a bit far from supermarkets, making us kind of depend on busses or the bike, which during my stay where mostly broken. But that's the vibe in Coolangatta, small city, poor public transportation and beach at the corner.
WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND YHA COOLANGATTA!!!!

I LOVED IT HERE! Truly a home away from home. The jobs are pretty easy and straightforward and leaves you the whole day to explore. You will meet so many people and I made friends that I will be contacting for a lifetime. Will 100% be coming back one day 💙

Had a really fun time with the staff and met some great people from all over the world. It's easy to make plans for smaller trips as the schedule and your working days are very flexible. The Hostel itself is very cosy and has one of the cleanest and best equipped kitchens of all the hostels I stayed in so far :)

The hostel is located just a few minutes walk from the beach and directly next to a bus stop making it very convenient for whatever you want to do. All the staff and other travelers I met from world packers were very friendly and I met some really great people during my time out here. Overall I had a really good time during my stay.

It was a real multicultural experience, I was able to practice my English a lot, also the location is really great, one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia just in a few blocks.
