Location good, everything else average. The room was so hot that we had to have all the windows and door open to get some ventilation as the one fan just didn't cut it. This made it super noisy so we just couldn't win! Not enough bathrooms and the ones that were there were always wet and dirty. Wouldn't stay again.

Location is ideal - right in the city, a short walk from south bank and 5 minutes from central station. There is a lack of atmosphere as the main social place is the kitchen - there is a small balcony and lounge area on the 3rd floor but it's tiny and used mainly to dry washing. However, very clean, friendly staff, brilliant location and AIR CON in the rooms! Would recommend.

Only stayed one night - hostel appeared to be pretty dirty and very hot. Old dusty fan didn't do too much and the rooms smelt pretty funky...

The positive: Great location in the city center close to the shopping malls and plenty of restaurants. The room was air-conditioned. The negative: It could be better maintained. Lot of things need some repair which makes it look a bit shabby. Wifi works only at reception but with a little upgrade its also available in the room.

It's such a long walk from greyhound and they don't offer a shuttle. The place itself is dark and dingy compared to all the other hostels I've stayed at. There was only ever one plate in the kitchen and all the other things were just left about on the side, never cleaned up and put away. Wifi barely worked and you could only use it in the reception between 6am-6pm. My key to the bathroom never worked either. They do let you store you luggage though which was handy

Location is its top advantage, just in the hart of CBD, and few minutes to the Central station, immediately next to the bus stop and supermarket. Free Wifi only available day time before 18:00 at receiption area.

Building was run down. Staff were ambivalent. Security in luggage room was bad, anyone could get the key ( there was a camera, but I doubt this would be much of a deterrent). Sign on kitchen door said "closed for a deep clean for two hours", went in 20 minutes after it reopened and it was absolutely disgusting. Rooms badly signposted. Stayed at Base Uptown next night which was cleaner, had more professional staff and more pleasant facilities. Base Embassy is worst hostel I've ever stayed at.

No individual outlets or reading lamps. Loud closing doors echoing all night. Great location. Big non AC kitchen. No lobby to hang out in at front. Very old, dorm feeling building, but u are in middle of Brisbane. It's a trade off.

Good enough for a place to crash for the rugby but the rooms had serious smells going on. Lots of door slamming. Smokers on the balcony was annoying st dinner time too despite all the no smoking signage.
