Beautiful building from the outside, complete dump on the inside. It was raining while we were there (standard for Queensland) and they had to cope by putting buckets and towels in the hallways to deal with the leaks. The toilets were constantly dirty and half the showers were broken. Save yourself the pain and misery and go elsewhere.
The location is fantastic for a backpacker but every corner you turn there is water dripping from the ceiling. I can tell that if they don't sort that out then they won't pass safety and cleanliness regulations.

Clean but really hot room without airconditioning. Very close to all highlights
I would not stay there again. First room was completely filthy and had no air-conditioning. Luckily we could change rooms and the second one had a ceiling fan at least. It smelled like vomid everywhere. The kitchen was a big dirty mess. If you wanted to cook or use something you have to wash it first. Rooms on lower levels heard the party noise from the bar downstairs.
This hostel is really well located. It is a huge hostel. A lot of young people. You need to pay for the wifi. The kitchen was REALLY dirty. I was afraid just to boil water. The washroom was soaked under water. The temperature in the room was nice. There is a lot of activities planned by the hostel. The staff make very loud announcement on the intercom even when I was sleeping. I do not recommend for someone who wants a quiet place.
