The location of this hostel is perfect, a short 2 minute walk into the centre of town, or 5 minutes over the bridge to South Bank. Great, friendly staff and super comfortable rooms. This place is a great choice if you're looking for somewhere to avoid the party hostel scene. Although, if you do want to have the option, the...

Rooms were spacious, beds were not comfy and sheets didn't feel clean, the en-suite was big and cleaned daily. There were loads of cockroaches in the room which seemed to be a problem in a few rooms. AC worked great and kept the room at a nice temp. Kitchen was clean, plenty of dishes, pots and pans and cutlery with...

This place may be one of the best in Brisbane based purely on it has air con in the entire building. Rooms are spacious and are cleaned daily. Staff are great and couldn't be more helpful.

When I arrived in my room I found a terrible confusion, clothes everyvere, people on the floor, offal on the floor... Obviously, it depends from the guys you find, but it is necessary a vademecum of good behaviour!

Stayed a month and a half at this hostel, the staff are very helpful and funny! The air con was good and rooms were cleaned daily. The kitchen was a nice size and didn't have to worry about finding a spot for a cool bag in the fridges. The smaller dorm rooms are better value for money and the higher...

The room was small but clean. Added bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. My husband and I stayed for two nights as it was very close to the Roma Street Railway station. There was a lot of noise from revellers outside our bedroom on the first night of our stay, but it lasted only half an hour. Although there was...

I stayed here two days ago for two days. I was in a shared mixed dorm, the roommates were ok. But the room was smelling sooo bad, water was dropping out of the old air conditioner and because the carpet was wet the smell was terrible. The bathroom was also really old and not clean. The staff was also not...

Stayed in Brisbane en route to Sydney and booked based on location. It is right outside the bus and train station which is amazing if you are carrying a huge backpack. I went out drinking with friends but you are not far from anything with China town being a 20 minute walk. The hostel itself was clean but my aircon...
