This hostel really is the most central hostel in Brisbane, right in the heart of the CBD. On the downsides, the bathrooms and kitchen were not very clean. If you stay, make sure to wash your dishes BEFORE you use them, and make sure to have some footwear for the shower.

This is a very bad hostel. I slept 1 week without curtain! Just 2 sockets for 6 people. Kitchen really dirty.
Stayed one night. Staff were friendly and helpful regarding arranging transport to the airport etc. The rooms had good sized lockers. The kitchen could have been a bit cleaner but I think this is more down to certain individuals then the hostel. It's cleaned daily.
The hostel lacked some soul. It wasn't as easy to meet other travellers as I have found in other hostels - this is important to me as a solo traveller. Check is was fantastic - I arrived around 9am but could check into my room straight away and I was upgraded to a smaller dorm. Perfect. Very clean, bathrooms were also good and kept clean.
Door to the room was noisy beyond belief and woke everyone up every time it was opened. Beds also incredibly noisy. 2 power sockets for an 8 bed dorm is ridiculous and would be easily solved. Internet was reasonably priced by Australia's standards although was quite slow. Kitchen was reasonable although there were never any forks available. Bathroom was clean.
The hostel is good but there are just 2 sockets for a bedroom with 6 beds. It is not enough. We stayed there 1 night and we couldn't recharge our mobiles
The hostel were clinical. The staff was not particularly friendly. Location is really good.
it was really good place. i am content with staying here for 4 days.

The kitchen was vile, the rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are clean. Lacked any atmosphere as its a converted office, so very big with little common areas. Very good location and safe
Not enough hobs in the kitchen (6) for the number of people in the hostel and I was there during the winter (low) season and 2 of those hobs did not work properly. Staff were very helpful though especially with booking train transfer to airport.
Kitchen and bathroom were a bit dirty.
Booked the hostel back in October 2012 for a wkd. That was 8 months in advance of wkd trip. Of course they got the booking missed placed or something like that. Annoyed that I had to move rooms the next morning... not impressed at all..
