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.

Great location, not the best atmosphere but cheap. Ok for a few nights.

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.

Wifi only worked 6am - 6pm in the reception only. If you wanted it in your room you had to pay extra. Rooms were generally clean but staff could improve there local knowledge to assist tourists on activities to do in the city or surrounding areas.

the staff were great. the place is well maintained n cleaned. Its as clean as a hotel. kudos for all cleaners there! security is great you literally need access key everywhere you go even to the toilet! the location right at the central. yet it is not noisy at night as the place r surrounded by shopping malls n offices instead of bars n pubs. Right beside hilton cbd. u cant get better place than that. cons: limited wifi at the tiny reception area till 6pm only. the slamming doors are annoying!

Pros - really central location. Easy to get most places in the city. Staff were always pleasant but not overly helpful. Cons - no lockers in room. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm and there was only 2 sockets in the whole room?! One of the only 2 sockets had a fan in it because there was no air con controller. zero atmosphere here. Kitchen was alway dirty and like a hot box. Rooms were cleaned daily but just a once over with a hoover.
