Located right in the centre of Brisbane, you're a short walk from the Queen Street mall and city shopping precinct, and also very close to the upmarket South Bank. The private room we stayed in was perfect for what we paid. Don't be fooled, I haven't rated it 4 stars because it is of 4 star quality, I've rated it...

Right across from the transit centre which helps me as I have fallen drunkly and hurt my leg. Daily activities were fun also in the bar and I won a private room which helped even more. Staff were great and friendly and room was really nice.

I think with this hostel I was just relatively unlucky with my room. Room was full of long term residents who left all of their stuff in the shared ensure. However, other than this, the shower and toilet was relatively clean. There was quite a lot of floor space and the beds were nice. There were only two power sockets...

The hostel is located directly in CBD in walking distance to all the important things to do. You get nice discounts at the bar next door but the bathrooms and the kitchen are not very clean. People are making a mess in the kitchen and the staff is not quick enough to clean it up, same with the rooms.. All...

I stayed for two nights in two different rooms and both were just fine. Clean and decent enough size for the 4 people occupying the bunks to have room to move. Staff are super friendly and helpful, but if you like real quiet, be aware there is a pub adjoining so partying does happen close by. So close to Roma...

Staff was friendly but rooms had some cockroaches so hopefully you aren't scared of them. The en suite shower was pretty gross (dirty tiles, rough "exfoliating" water shower pressure etc) so thank heavens we only had to stay one night there. I did enjoy the adjoining restaurant though:)

This hostel is in a great location and very central so easy enough to find your way around. The rooms are spacious enough if you stay in a 4 bed dorm. Unfortunately no lockers in your room or anywhere in hostel so that's a downside. The cleanliness was not great, When changing the bed they would replace bed sheets and...

Stayed here after travelling from Surfers, as reviews were great and location was perfect. Right next to the station and just a really really short walk away from the city.

Ask for Alison. She helped plan our tours whilst visiting the city. Very good location, with bus and coach stations situated opposite the hostel. Drink free hostel, but an excellent bar attached next door! Rooms were very clean and well kept.
