I was lucky enough to get a dorm room with just 2 other girls, who were really quiet and did not snore, so that's such a bonus. Only problem I found was 2 flights of stairs to carry bags up. Best thing was the FREE shuttle bus that took me where I wanted to go - that was just great! It cost $20 to get there from the airport on a Con-e-xion bus and I arranged it right outside the airport baggage pick up area.

LARGE HOSTEL, MEDIUM KITCHEN, LARGE HANG OUT AREA, NICE POOL, LOTS OF COMPUTERS, PEOPLE HANG OUT A LOT, GREAT BAR WITH DEALS, FREE VANS TO DIFFERENT LOCATIONS ALL THE TIME. STAFF IS EXTREMELY FRIENDLY. TOP 3 HOSTELS IN BRISBANE (BEEN TO 12 HERE SO FAR).
Very dirty. Does not have the youthful atmosphere because the facilities are so run down. Showers are very weak, close to unusable. Unforgivable mistake of checking a stranger into our room although all the beds are booked by my group. The manager is very sincere though therefore we let it go.
Staff did not communicate with each other. We were rudely awoken after arriving at 3am and ordered to pay within the hour even though we were staying for three nights and they had our passports. We were put in a 8 bed dorm and were the only people not living there, there was nowhere to put your stuff and you had to constantly step over stuff. The room was never cleaned properly, it was really warm, smelt awful and the bathroom was one of the worst I have seen after 2 months travelling.
