^ Do you mean Islander Backpackers Resort? That's where I stayed when I went to the Gold Coast. The hostel room is a regular hotel room with 2 bunk beds, instead of a double bed. Okay naman siya, maganda nga ang location. It's right beside the main bus station, and malapit sa bus stop going to Sea World and the bus stop for busses coming in from the train station. From what I remember, the rooms aren't airconditioned, fan lang. There's a balcony, though you might have to twice before leaving it open to let fresh air in -- our room before looks out over the pool and jacuzzi. And if there are people using the pool and jacuzzi at night, you can really hear them. Plus, Surfer's Paradise is very commercialized and is alive almost 24-hours a day. So dinig mo yung noise from the street outside the hotel.
