For a backpackers over a pub, this was good. Nice kitchen and a great balcony. Staff were great. Small room but the sheets were clean and the a/c quiet. Friday night and security staff were active, and welcome to humans of Coolangatta, but everyone was friendly and the covers band was pretty good. Thumbs down to the shared bathrooms / toilets, which were in a reasonably bad condition, cracked, dirty and wet, with dodgy locks.

Location is great. Sparse, but clean room. Air conditioning didn't work, had a fan in the room but it was quite hot still.
