從邦德堡搭五六小時火車轉搭Toowoomba灰狗巴士期間,挑了這間Backpackers過渡一夜。Brisbane火車站位處於Roma Station,這裏才真正是Brisbane大眾運輸的中樞,火車(Queensland Rail)、長程客運(Greyhound)都從這裏發車,當然捷運與巴士的交通系統(Translink)也有經行設站。 說起找這間Backpackers可說是備感艱辛,Roma Station的Backpackers都集中在Upper Roma Street那條路上,偏偏這條路是一系列上坡路段,從火車站下車提著沉重的行李推到這帶其實挺吃力的。 Clound 9 是這幾間問了幾家比較便宜的,我在這裏住Female Only房一晚,衛浴設備設於房間內,簡單而言是一間乾淨舒適的Backpackers。

We stayed here for two nights and were upgrade to a new refurbished dorm. It was very clean and comfy. No problems with aircon, both nights we had a good sleep. The showers and toilets were standard for a hostel, i felt clean after coming out of the shower which i don't get in some hostels. We were able to...

We first checked in because we had a voucher for one night but we could only use this voucher if we would check in for two nigths. As we had to pay the second night we chose a very cheap 10 bed dorm. Well, I thought it was disgusting but maybe I am just not a goog backpacker ;) After...

I stayed in a room, upgraded to a 6 bed en suite dorm because they mucked up y booking, it was plus 30 degrees with no windows - was worse than the larger dorms. Fan did nothing to cool it down. My friend in a 12 bed dorm had efficient air con and a velux window. Management was pretty crap...

We booked an 8 sleepers mixed dorm for 1 night and it was dreadful. Arrived in the room assigned there weren't any available beds, every single one of them was filled with dirty clothes and other people's stuff and you couldn't walk on the floor because it was full of garbage. We talked with the receptionist who assured us that...

This isnt a place you should pay to be. This is a place you should volunteer yourself for if you are into suffering and experimentation of human endurance. Or you just like existing in squalor. Whatever. Yha is just up the road...do yourself a favour and keep walking past cloud 9.

This place is absolutely horrible, air condition in the room that actually didn't work. dirt everywhere, bad smell at the entrance, ants in the kitchen, I found bed bugs in my room and the staff was completely indifferent at the problem, very rude! There has been a storm that ruined some rooms so they relocated me in another room lot...

The worse hostel experience I have ever had. Cockroaches in our shower and bugs everywhere in the kitchen, holes in the walls and ceilings... need I say more. This hostel needs to be removed from the guide book I bought.
