Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked one of the 'pod' rooms for one night. Absolutely loved it - wished every hostel offered these! Really appreciated the large lockable storage lockers in each room too as they were handy for putting all luggage away in (you can fit a large rucksack or suitcase in if you wanted). En-suite bathroom and communal facilities were very clean. Would definitely stay again.

The hostel was run down and in desperate need of repair, holes in the bathroom ceiling, disgusting showers and poorly maintained communal areas. The hostel is advertised as having air conditioned rooms however the air conditioning does not work in the room and felt like a sauna, so was unable to get any sleep. One member of staff was very helpful and could not be more apologetic about the conditions in which we were subjected to and tried to move our rooms but didn’t have anything else available. When speaking to the the so called manager James, the following morning after a night of no sleep, he was unapologetic about our situation and said it’s tough sh*t’. The smug attitude of him following our awful night stay is a reflection of the entire stay.

I stayed at Capsules first which were really comfy, squeaky sometimes though which was the only issue other than that good, there are air cons inside of them, usb charging stations, different sets of neon lights, etc. 2 rooms which are connected to each other, 4 capsules in each room, there was also a little balcony. Capsule rooms are typically quite and good to get some rest when super tired. Then, I moved to 8xbed dorm which wasn't too bad, can be a bit disgusting though sometimes depending on who you stay with, I mean when they spray the F* out of the room with their cheap sh*t-smelling deodorant - you have to breathe! Breeeathe! Other than that you get what you pay for pretty much, it was like 120 bucks a week (end-2021 price). There is a balcony, a much better one than the one in the capsule room, there is also a shower and toilet. Obviously, not much of a privacy as you'd inevitably see and hear everything what's happening in the room, for more privacy - capsules or private rooms which are super-expensive if you're a traveller or student!

We stayed here as a family and had a great time. The staff were friendly and the room was clean and tidy. Great central location near Westend and Southbank. They have cool facilities including pool, spa, basketball court, pool table and table tennis 🏓. They’ve a bar and good shared toilets and showers. The hallway and room did have a slight strange smell and the beds weren’t the best, however cheap and cheerful. #brisbanebackers #exploring #peachytravellers #travelreviewers

Working in Mackay paid me enough to allow me to have a month's holiday in Brisbane, truly a new World city. Its location and free very regular shuttle bus service to Roma and With Bank meant I could walk round the Parklands every morning, do all the free Hopper ferries, walks, guided tours, and other sightseeing, and end up at South Bank every afternoon where I could spend a few hours before going back to the hostel enjoy TV room, films, free wifi, books and small library, loungers by the pool and the free breakfast. The best thing for me were the brilliant staff who were unfailingly helpful, friendly and cheerful, especially Iris, Mitch, Johan and Lara. I hope you all stay safe and well in this global health crisis and can operate in the future when normal life resumes.

I have been here for five weeks. The location in West End perfectly fits to enjoy the close West End area with its Restaurants und urban Shops. But also for the 15 minutes walk down to South Bank Parklands, or the city highest Point ‘Highgate Hill Park’. The employees were always friendly to me. The location is mostly clean. Cleaned every day also the kitchen. The Cleaning-Team is doing a great job. Pool, spa and sportsarea are just fine. The bed could be better stabilized.

The hostel is nice: good vibes, things to do, nice bedroom. Seems like home, and the staff was friendly and not nanny like most of hostel in Australia. I didn’t have 5 star because one evening I found a bunch of idiot from outside at the bar, Australians, annoying the guests, completely drunk, and no one from the hostel did say anything or kick them out. Pretty annoying saw that scene. For the rest everything fine, keep going like thath guys 👌🏻.

Stayed only for one night in a female only, friendly staff, rooms have their own bathroom and balcony. Just around 15 minutes walk to the city lagoon. The hostel is pretty busy, so pretty easy to socialise.

Stayed here for 2 weeks a while back, It's a brilliant hostel, with events going on almost every night. Brilliant atmosphere and very easy to make new friends. The hourly shuttle too and from the station is a life-saver!
