Ok for a couple nights

the location, the location and probably the facilities
The location is perfect if you are planning on going out as it is only a few hundred meters away from the main nightlife street... which also means it can be a bit noisy. A tram station is also very close by, so is the beach and restaurants/supermarkets. However, don't expect anything special about the room (at least dorm rooms). Yet it was relatively clean and the en-suite bathroom was a nice surprise. No blanket means I was really cold at night (at this time of the year, night are fresh) I can not say anything about the facilities as i didn't have time to enjoy them.

My time at the Islander

Location. Location Location
I found my stay was great...the location about this place i think is the best thing..Not right on the beach..but only one block back..so could walk easily to the beach and even come back to room and then back to beach again very easily and in minutes.You have all the restaurants and supermarkets right on your doorstep..the room was very clean and maintained daily..fridge. TV own bathroom..all you could need..Balcony.. The location being where it is also means you get a bit of people noise throughout the night from those coming home from clubs etc ..But i found it great for my time there in Surfers Paradise...
