I spent one night here back in 2011 and decided a comeback was needed for 2016. The hostel is easy to get to from either airport and from Roma St Station - the dorm I was in was spacious and cleaned daily; the bunks were comfortable. The only minor critiques I can think of is that the bathroom could be...

Great, new (or just updated) hostel. Roma street, where there are about five hostels is a bit of a walk into town but nothing unmanageable. One perk is it's really close to the main transit centre for Brisbane. When I checked in I was upgraded to a private room with two of my friends, had an ensuite bathroom that was...

Stayed here for a week, and it's quite a nice hostel. It's clean and has all the necessary facilities for a quiet spot to relax, such as the reading room or the TV lounge. Staff have been really friendly, cannot fault them here. The kitchen is pretty spacious and despite a few lazy backpackers not cleaning up after themselves, you...

I stayed here for three nights while doing a three day working weekend in Brisbane. I thought I'd save some money by staying in a hostel instead of a hotel, figuring that I'd be so exhausted that I wouldn't need much more then a bed to crash it. The street that this hostel was on had at least another four...

I absolutely loved this place. It's a perfectly made hostel with everything you could ask for. I traveled here with some friends from Toowoombaa and was surprised to know that they offered free parking. Getting anything for free in Brisbane was pretty exciting for us. The staff here were extremely friendly. They also have free games that you could use...

This is the first YHA we have stayed at and the stay was good but lacking in a few things I would except from an international brand. Price: it's expensive as far as hostels go. Upper Roma St is home to about 5 hostels and I believe YHA was the most expensive. The price fluctuates day to day. We found...

The staffs in YHA Brisbane were extremely friendly, which made us feel like home. The location was just 10-15mins walk distance from Brisbane transit centre, Roma street. Kitchen was well equipped with comprehensive utensils and facilities, neat and clean, highly recommended!

Nice clean spaces. Good kitchen. Funny lifts (shark photo on the floor of one of the lifts). The staff are really friendly and genuinely do their best to help. It's a tad out of town but not enough to make it a seriously annoying trek. The train line is close though and the doors could do with a little maintenance...

I stayed at the YHA in the private room with ensuite, which was great value. The room was very clean and compact, it had city views. This YHA is very modern and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There's a lot of people staying and going, it's a nice busy little spot.
