The Coolangatta Sands Hostel is brilliantly located in the heart of Coolangatta, the very first stop on the Gold Coast once you cross the border into Queensland from New South Wales… Just up from Byron bay.
Coolangatta is home to Mick Fanning and Stephanie Gilmore the worlds surfing champions and their favourite surfing breaks like Snapper Rocks and D-Bah which can be found directly across the road.
We are the closest hostel on the Gold Coast to the beach. Our hostel boasts modern new facilities, The Lounge, chill-out bar, Kirrabelle Brasserie and sports bar. It is a perfect hostel for anyone keen to chill out, surf, take on the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast, or just enjoy the great view of Kirra Point whilst relaxing on the day beds upstairs on the hostels terraced balcony.

Diving and fishing around the Cook Island Marine Park, surfing lessons from the world’s best surf coach or taking the plunge with the local Gold Coast Skydive one of the few places in Australia you are allowed to land on the beach!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
The worst place I ever stayed: the bold dude at the reception was extremely rude and unfriendly: I booked a 4 beds and gave me a 8 beds!!! Didn't give any sheets for bed & pillow. Beside all this on Friday night was so noisy due the music from downstair and in front from Neverlanbar; could'nt sleep till 2/3am!!! I asked for a shuttle service to airport the same dude make up some excuses and I have to take the taxi, while in the morning the hostel shuttle was just parked in front!!!! AVOID IT TOTALLY!!!!!!!!
