Dirty, disgusting kitchen, bad air in the rooms, no place to sit and eat and not enough spoons and mugs for more than two people..At least the wifi was good.


Really good location to access all of central Brisbane. Staff does well with what they have. Owners need to re-due kitchen and eating area. Big clean up and better set up for food storage, trash handling and refrigerator capacity/function. Bunk beds are really shaky. Well used place that is in need of some reinvestment.


This backpack is an OLD SHARE-HOUSE. Some double rooms are very close to the kitchen and the living room. The walls are very fine and you can hear everything around. There is no sunlight as some sheets cover the window because there's no shutter. The double room has the bed and the chest of drawers. Nothing else. The backpack is really clean but the pans are really old !!! The backpack is close to the center.

Hello Natacha Thank you for your feedback, it is always important to us to know our guest's feelings in order to improve the hostel. We are planning to renew this room in the following weeks . I hope you will have the opportunity to come back and stay in one of our others double rooms which are (for the moment) more quiet and bright. Cheers Maelle
