I've stayed at the Islander before and it's been fine. On a positive note...it's an amazing location. Pretty much at the end of Cavill Ave and all the GC nightlife. This time, however, it was a construction zone. The pool and BBQ were out of commission and the place was quite run-down. We were really disappointed because we did not... More

the "hotel" building was old and so were the piping system. The room we had on the 10th floor was unable to have a constant flow of water. Thus the water supply in the shower was suddenly huge and could suddenly turn into a small flow. alternating both hot and cold suddenly too. Was unable to take a decent shower... More

Have never had a problem whilst staying here. The staff are friendly and the rooms are decent. If you need last minute accommodation or even a reasonably priced hotel for the night I would recommend this hotel. Just make sure you get the rooms with at least one bedroom - they are of a decent size.

The hotel is very well located. Surfers Paradise is the most happening place in Gold Coast by the day and night. You can actually walk down to the beach from this hotel, take a good swim and walk back. However the hotel is a 3 star category and quality if rooms is so so. The jacuzzi on the ground floor...

This hotel/hostel is situated in the middle of Surfers Paradise which is awesome however that means of a night time it get ridiculously loud. Then once you get to sleep expect to be woken at the moment by builders as they are renovating the whole hotel/hostel. Staff were friendly. But this place is only average not great and not terrible.

The best thing about this hotel is it's location. It is located at a prime location at the heart of the city "Surfers Paradise" very near to the sea. Though the property is a bit old and needs some maintenance but overall it's a value for money. The restaurant servers good food and the pool looks okay. But the front... More

Good youth hostel. Fun times were had. Would visit again. Fun bar adjoined to the hostel. Very fun weekend on the Gold Coast. Filled with young people ready to party. Friendly staff and easy to find. Good pool and great views of the beach from our room.
