Very clean. Make sure you bring ear plugs, some rooms are right next to the train which you can hear all night. Good laundry facility. Good cafe. Good common rooms on the top floor.

Very close to the train tracks. You can hear it rumbling and speaking from the women's wing in the second floor. Certain common areas smelt like wet dog and they charge to hold baggage (checking in or out) by making you buy lockers. However, the kitchen and deck top ratting area were nice. As was the first free pancake on Sunday morning.

I cannot praise the hostel and their staff enough. They went out of their way to make sure I was charged the appropriate fee given I had booked via another site. My room was spotless and had a great view. Movie theatre, cafes and supermarket nearby was a bonus. Cafe downstairs made the best fresh juice. I will definitely stay there again. As an older traveller I was not made to feel uncomfortable. Thanks

Clean, staff were friendly, I didn't feel the social vibe much and I felt it was rather located on the out skirts of the city. Coles was close enough.

The location is close to the train and bus stations but a bit of a walk into the heart of the city. The facilities are great, a lot of long-term people living there. A big place but very well run and comfortable. Would stay here again.

Great facilities, weird atmosphere though, lots of older travellers and school trips. Not really one for young solo backpackers.

There's very little atmosphere for solo travelers to meet others, that's because guests are a mix of school groups, elderly people, and people who don't seem to be travelers at all. Not to mention you must pay for everything: from towels to wifi. Additionally, I had to switch rooms because of booking logistics from the hostel, along with many others. Some of the staff are friendly, but others seem bothered to help you. I wouldn't stay here again.

Clean hostel with great kitchen and nice terrace with amazing view. A bit quiet though and a lot of families (at the time I was there), also the blankets aren't very warm when your staying in a dorm so during the winter it's probably a good idea to bring a sleeping bag or something like that as they do not have any at the reception.

Really clean and well-kept hostel, with excellent facilities. Staff were reasonably friendly and helpful, although a bit distracted at check-in; however, they were quick to respond to requests on the whole. Safe area with great restaurants around the corner. Early on our check-out day we spotted a large bug (likely a roach) in our bathroom, under the shower siding! Might want to take a look into the wet corners of the bathrooms to ensure there isn't a pest problem.

I had a very pleasant stay here, my roommates were cool. The hostel is clean, except the toilet can be better. The decoration is unlike other hostel, it has been the best hostel I have ever stayed in Australia.

Great place to stay with really friendly staff! But the toilets and showers were pretty rank :-(

The place is spotless!!!! Kept so clean which is a huge plus! Very secure and lockers in the room for your bags. Staff are lovely and ice pops on arrival were a really nice touch! Recommend the place fully. Nice few eateries close by and close to supermarket. Short walk from the Roma Street train station also. Only stayed one night but one of the few hostels that I would happily stay for a few nights!

This is probably the best hostel in Brisbane but im not sure that says a lot about this hostel: i just heard some really bad stories about all others. The hostel is pretty clean, staff is very nice, the rooms are pretty Nice and the kitchen is big and well equipped. But you do pay about 10 dollars a night more than in other hostels in this street. And wifi is still not included. Not a very fun atmosphere either, but i guess you have to be kind of lucky with your dormmates.

Nice hostel which is very clean and has good facilities. More people staying here were long stayers, which could make it difficult to meet people. Also a bit of a walk from the centre of town. Otherwise, good hostel.
