Spent a month here with my partner whilst backpacking Aus. Had a very good experience here. Very good value for money and perfect location! Staff friendly and helped us find work for our regional work. Any questions please feel free to ask

Very good! Good location with all support for the staff. Good restaurants in the area. During the night some noises because you will be in the city center but it's ok. Brisbane is a small city, so you can do everything by walk.

+very clean +quiet which means you can get a good nights sleep +very nice staff -our room smelled vaguely like cheese -you have to pay for cutlery and cups, which is kinda ridiculous. -depressing grey corridors which could really do with a makeover (please! just add a little colour!) Overall this place is okay for a couple of nights, but...

The general cleanliness of the place was average however the kitchen cupboards had a really bad smell which was enough to make my friend gag. Saying that the stoves themselves were good. The kitchen was always quiet which made a nice change and the balcony was a nice place to sit and eat. The disabled bathroom was awful, the flush...

Base Brisbane Embassy was one of the worst hostels I've stayed at. The 'deluxe 4 bed female dorm' was tiny, and there was a thick layer of grime around the edge of the carpet which clearly had never been hoovered. The hostel is old, and clearly in need of a bit of TLC. When checking in I found the man...

Yet another Base hostel that is a huge disappointment. I would not recommend to anyone to stay at this hostel as it is disgusting. Our room smelled, the floor we were on smelled, the hallways smelled... this place needs aired out. The staff appear to have a problem with guests smoking in bathrooms and not washing their dishes as there...

Stayed in a 6bed dorm and does what it says on the tin. Bunk beds are metal and super squeaky which is a bit annoying. Bathrooms very clean, pots in kitchen a bit grubby. This is a large hostel and no good communal spaces and seems like a lot of longer termers. Great central location though and staff fairly friendly.

Base Embassy has pretty big 8 dorms. Bathrooms are okay and cleaned daily. The kotchen is very big, but might not offer a seperate table for everyone during peak time. Staff was very helpful. Met very cool people there. It is basically at the city centre, so it's ideal for tourists of all kind.

The hostel is right in the heart of the city centre which is great for getting around. Biggest downside was the facilities, the kitchen was always dirty, even when the staff worked hard to clean the kitchen it was always dirty 10 mins later. The dorm rooms were dark but relatively clean. Generally everything felt like it had a layer...
