“Adequate”
Reviewed 4 December 2010

The room in this hostel was a good size and was clean. We booked a private room without bathroom.
The bathrrom was also very clean. The staff however were not good. They were not friendly at all and did not offer help.
We stayed at the hostel for the ashes and it was in a good location in the centre of the city.
The bed was not too comfy, my partner and i did not sleep too well!
You get what you pay for and this is ideal for travellers just looking for a bed.
The laundry room was small but adequate and the same goes for the internet room.

Very good hostel right in the CBD of Brisbane. The Rooms and Bathrooms are clean and airconditioned. The well equiped kitchen is big and clean, balcony included. There is a TV Room, a computer room and a rooftop terrace, perfect for meeting for a few drinks. The Staff is friendly, many of them are backpackers as well, so nobody really complains if it gets a bit louder on the rooftop at night. The hostel is not too bid, not too smal, just a good size to get to know some people. I stayed there for 20 AUD a night, which is really good value for everything the hostel has to offer. Base Embassy is definately a hostel where you can stay for a while!

The hostel is located just off the Queen St Mall which is right in the middle of Brisbane's CBD. We stayed on the 4th floor and for 2 nights, we didn't hear a sound. However, on our last night, the club below the hostel was in full swing and the noise could still be heard into the early hours. The showers and bathrooms in general were modern and clean. The kitchen was roomy and included lots of facilties. This would be a better bet than Brisbane Central if you wanted the location but perhaps not the same level of noise.

This hostel was in an excellent location in the heart of brisbane. The room was comfortable and spacious. The bathrooms and kitchen were clean and well looked after. The facilities were excellent there was even a room terrace and cinema room. The only downside to the hostel was the noise from the bar next door ( which was below our room) However I knew this prior to booking and as the hostel was good value and had a great location I didf not mind. I have found you ofetn have noise issues in entral locations. Luckily we were so tired we slept through. Would recommend for a short stay.

I'm amazed at other reviews! The place was filthy when we were there, no-one staying seemed old enough to be capable of clearing up their own kitchen stuff and the poor cleaning staff seemed manic trying to tidy up after them. Have to give them credit for that! The reception staff were very good and helpful and organised tours for us so that was a plus. If you want even slightly quiet and comfy just avoid this place. If you want a party place near clubs and bars then this is perfect but if you want to stay somewhere more "grown up" go elsewhere!
