Other than the lobby smelling like urine and being kept up until 3am by the bass from the club below, not bad. Great staff and clean rooms

Nice historical building in the heart of CBD

Sorry, can't comment on all the facilities as I didn't use the kitchens. Could have done without the loud music playing at 3am. Thought it was the pub in the basement but actually turned out to be reception. Was down in reception on my second night to use the internet and the music was playing loudly despite there being nobody at the desk or anybody in the foyer. Otherwise lovely building, lots of atmosphere. Very clean and well cared for.

Terrible hostel! The staff is very unfriendly and always busy, feels like you are bothering them really if you ask one question. There are not enough bathrooms in any floor and the music of the bar under the hostel, keeps you awake.

A hostel on a perfect location! The bar in the basement has good breakfast in the morning and a good party at night! A nice place to stay for a weekend. If you are planning to stay in Brisbane for a long time you probably like a hostel that is more quiet.

Really good hostel, rooms were big, clean and everyone has its own locker under the bed. Due to the bar downstairs its noisy at night but its a good opportunity to meet new people though.

Really good hostel, lots on offer to do. Good atmosphere, just a shame about the uncharastmatic man behind the desk. Bar next door with cheap drinks and food. Near to bus and train station!

The rooms were dirty. It looked like the room had not been clean for months. I have stayed at this place before but the first time was a much better experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone. But the location was unbeatable.

It is a good location for catching the air train. Not a hostel for resting in as it has a bar playing music late into the wee hours. Dorm room doors open with people partying into the wee hours with no respect for other travellers. Nobody pays attention to the signs about quiet times and the staff do not reinforce them either. Could be a lovely place if better managed with all travellers well being in mind. It is just a party place really. Brenda Canada February 10th, 2014. Mature nomad.

The facilities in the kitchen have been very rare , old and dirty. Sometimes there was no fork left if to many people were eating at the same time.

Location is perfect but everything else is just standard. Not a bad hostel in any way but nothing stand out about it.

Location is very good, and the staffs are awesome. But if you want to "SLEEP" at night, I recommend to find another hostel away from the city center. I totally couldn't sleep at night, because there was a night club downstairs, a window in my room was rattled by the music. Almost people doesn't know how they can make noises in the hallway. Yelling, running, waking very tough, banging doors -Floor made by wood. I stayed 4 mixed dorm and there were just only 2 power points, smells bad, humid,small

Really bad hostel. I booked a single room and i wasn't able to sleep because people talk on their phone during the night even if it says to be quiet. Someone stoll my food and compare to other hostel where it says it's not tolerate and you get kicked out, for this one it's really common (it's written on their fridge). I felt like i throw my money in the garbage by staying here! I hated my stay and i will definitively not recommend it.

This is a really good hostel and the staff are very nice.. There's a dvd room and free wifi on the ground floor. The hostel is noisy into the evening. It is definitely a party hostel for 18-25 year olds. It depends what you want.

I had a sigle room which wash"t exactly cheap. It was clean, but small. And I could hear the music from either their own bar or some other bar all night actually.

A very noisy hostel. Only stayed one night as the sound of "Sweet Child of Mine" and hundreds of backpackers singing it at the top of their voices until 4am kept me up. Good for partying and people looking for a night out. Not for anyone that wants a reasonable nights sleep.
