    Be aware that Minto Colonial is a hostel not a hotel, and walls are made of paper (even with ear plugs you won't be able to sleep). We had a TV in our room, the volume was so low that we had to put subtitles,...More

    Hi Megali, We're very sorry you took that letter so personally, especially when we took great pains in the writing of that letter to let people know that we weren't "singling anyone out" and that we wanted to remind "everyone" who uses a device that...More

    Probably the noisiest place I've stayed outside Central America. Don't expect to sleep much unless you have earplugs or are heavily sedated. Ultra basic facilities, zero service staff, uncomfortable and a little grubby, it's saved by the charm of the big old Queenslander building.
