The room was small but clean. Added bathroom with shower, toilet and basin. My husband and I stayed for two nights as it was very close to the Roma Street Railway station. There was a lot of noise from revellers outside our bedroom on the first night of our stay, but it lasted only half an hour. Although there was...

I stayed here two days ago for two days. I was in a shared mixed dorm, the roommates were ok. But the room was smelling sooo bad, water was dropping out of the old air conditioner and because the carpet was wet the smell was terrible. The bathroom was also really old and not clean. The staff was also not...

Location - perfect, so close to city centre and main shopping areas. Opposite the transit centre for buses and trains (especially good for travellers on the greyhound or for the airport!) Rooms - stayed in 4 bed dorm. Bunk beds were clean and comfortable but very squeaky and a screw was missing from the ladder which we asked reception foe...

Stayed in Brisbane en route to Sydney and booked based on location. It is right outside the bus and train station which is amazing if you are carrying a huge backpack. I went out drinking with friends but you are not far from anything with China town being a 20 minute walk. The hostel itself was clean but my aircon...

The bedroom was pretty crowded with the set up, the bunk beds are really close together so very little space between people sleeping. The bathroom was quite dirty, as well as the common areas and kitchen. Overall, great location, and right next to a pub and the train station.

If all you need is a bed to sleep in, then this hostel is perfect. But if you plan on cooking your meals here, and staying an extended period it might not be the right place. Great location however, soo easy with the train.

Located right in the centre of Brisbane, you're a short walk from the Queen Street mall and city shopping precinct, and also very close to the upmarket South Bank. The private room we stayed in was perfect for what we paid. Don't be fooled, I haven't rated it 4 stars because it is of 4 star quality, I've rated it...

Right across from the transit centre which helps me as I have fallen drunkly and hurt my leg. Daily activities were fun also in the bar and I won a private room which helped even more. Staff were great and friendly and room was really nice.

I think with this hostel I was just relatively unlucky with my room. Room was full of long term residents who left all of their stuff in the shared ensure. However, other than this, the shower and toilet was relatively clean. There was quite a lot of floor space and the beds were nice. There were only two power sockets...
