This is an amazing hostel. There is a rooftop swimming pool with fantastic views of the city. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The kitchen is very clean. I stayed in a four bed dorm. Each guest has a large locker which has a power socket inside it which was so handy! The hostel runs events e.g. pub crawls...

A big hostel, more of a 'hotel feeling'. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. There is a little café where you can have breakfast and a drink at night. The view is amazing. Free Wifi only available at reception (not at the other common areas such as tv-room or kitchen). Parking is often fully booked. A 10/15 minute walk into...

I've stayed here three times in total, this place is worth its money. It is very clean and quiet at night. The kitchen is more then big enough. It is a bit out of the center, however the view at the top makes up for that. Staff was ok. Can definetly recommend.

A superb hostel in a ideal location, a flat 10 minute stroll will take you into the heart of Brisbane's shopping district, 8 minutes will take to the grassy vibrant Southbank area and 2 minutes to the Suncorp Stadium and Roma Street Station, all this makes it a great location. The hostel is clean and has a large kitchen big...

Hostel is quite far from the city but it's pretty good otherwise. Some of the staff were not so helpful but not rude either. Quite clean and pleasant basic hostel. I was expecting a bit more for YHA hostel.

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...
