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...

Great hostel

Location, Clean room and Good atmosphere
The room only has the stand fan, and it gets quite hot at night. The wifi is free but it is only for 30 mins and thats it. The kitchen is quite big, and the dining place is clean and has a tv in it. The bed is tough, its not making any squeaky noises and it is cormfortable.

value and great location

the location and the price
It was well located in heart of surfers paradise close to everything and that includes beach and transport.Dorms were adequate if a little hot but not a major problem that high up.the place is getting a little old but for that price and time of year (new years eve)no complaints.I would definitely stay there again if I was going to the gold coast.
