Cute little inn in a good, central location in Brisbane. The facilities were clean as were the rooms, and the rooms were very comfortable, equipped with AC and free wifi. A kitchen was also present that had the whole works: pots, pans, even some spices, herbs, and oils- you name it. Definitely enjoyed my stay here and would go back....

Located near the top of a hill,...

We spent four nights here after flying in from the USA. It was nice and quiet. There is free coffee and tea and everything you need in the kitchen. It is a bit further from downtown than other hostels but worth it for us to have a good sleep.

I stayed a night in this place. The place is very pretty and you feel at home I would have stayed more if possible. The place is close to brisbane center 15-20 min on walk and 10-15 on walk to the city hopper ( free ferry which goes to south bank and queen street). Kitchen, bathroom and room are clean....
