Great location, very central as are most of the hostels. No free WiFi which was kinda ridiculous. Only common area was the kitchen so not much atmosphere. AC in room didn't really work and bathrooms were a little grungy. Not a great hostel but it is good enough for a night or two in Brisbane.


Very friendly staff. good location and facilities.


We could hear drunk people coming back late and making a lot of noise in the middle of the night on every night that we were there. So maybe some enforcement or prevention can be done about that.

The room was great, it was clean and the bed was excellant. But the kitchen was Very dirty and smelly not just because of normal kithcen mess but it just seemed not clean. There is only cook tops and mircowave with a few toasters and 2 medium fridges considering the size of the Embassy. If your just looking for a bed Great stay, eat out otherwise
