The dorm rooms and ensuite were good, they were clean and comfortable with large lockers for storing all your luggage! The hostel however had no atmosphere and the kitchen area was small compared to the size of the hostel so got busy and very dirty - potentially one of the

Stayed in a premium private ensuite room which would have been hotel standard if it would have had a TV (disappointing) and wi-fi. Bed was extremely comfortable. Didn't use any of the communal facilities but had a look around and was very impressed with the size and facilities

Fab location, really clean & very comfortable beds. Stayed with 2 friends and we were all so happy to see a proper duvet and not just a sheet! Large communal area on the top floor and amazing views across the city. One of my favourite hostels up the East Coast.

Friendly staff, nice and clean and in a great location close to everything in Brisbane. All the facilities are really good. It is pretty big and lacks the social vibe that smaller hostels have, but it's perfect for just one night.

Hi Fitz8, Thanks very much for getting in touch. Our swimming pool is closed from 11pm until 5am daily and opened all other hours. The pool recently underwent annual maintenance for a short period over winter, however has reopened again for normal usage. Most bus tickets can be bought direct from the driver as you board. Cash is required and there are no Eftpos/credit card facilities on board. You can also use a GoCard (similar to the London Oyster Card or Japan Suica or Pasmo cards), which saves you 30% on normal adult fares. You can purchase a GoCard from the Brisbane Transit Centre on Roma St, just 600 metres walk from the hostel. Looking forward to seeing you soon!

Is it possible to park for free around the hostel?
how much for the shuttle service from brisbane airport? thanks
Hi 34celial, A shuttle service from the Brisbane airport to our hostel on Upper Roma Street is priced from $15, alternatively you can catch the Airtrain to Roma Street station for a similar price. Hope that helps. Thank you.

"Ask for a room with a city view."
"The three-bed dorms are good. But don't take rooms rooms near sanitaries (slamming doors)."
"you can request which room you want"
"Rooms are exactly as described"
"They're all very similar"
US$24 - US$71 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
