We've stayed in some pretty shady hostels in the last few months, but this place is disgusting. Not only will the smells around this place haunt me (mainly the kitchen and bedrooms) but we woke up to pee all over the room- and I can't blame him because the bathrooms were so gross I didn't want to pee in there either. Don't do it unless you'll be completely belligerent your entire stay.

We had a great time at Bunk. It is a party good times hostel so you can hear the music from the bar but we put ear plugs in and slept fine. everything was clean and tidy, the kitchen was big and the tours they offer are great. we went on the koala tour.

It's a huge hostel and many people don't talk of each other very much, so if you're traveling by yourself it's not easy to meet new people, but if you're not alone, it's much more fun. The staff were very nice and even change my room when I asked them too. Nice breakfast and fast WiFi, 10 min walk to Woolworths, few min walk to China town.

This place didn't match its reviews for me. The 10 bed bunk is a terrible room, the guy encouraged me from right off the bat to upgrade to the 6-8 bed dorms because they are nicer after me telling him I need to extend. They are a lot nicer. A LOT NICER. If you want to party, there is a decent attached bar with whatever you need, the day staff was great, I wish I could say the same about the evening girls. This place would never place in my top 25 hostels.

This hostel was a love/ hate relationship. I loved the staff. Probably the best all round staff in Australia... Awesome!! Rooms are ok, small bathrooms/ showers in dorms. Would be better with separate rooms. Loud and a lot of shagging happening!! Beds are loud. Bar is loud if your room is facing that way and doesn't stop till 5 am.

This hostel has no personality. Too big/corporate feeling for my taste. There was no good common area to hang out. Pool and hot tub looked really dirty

Extremely helpful staff. Plenty of activities in the evening. Close to China town and the Brisbane River and Story Bridge.

Everything a hostel needs. The huge kitchen is great although restricting when you can watch TV is a bit odd. Never had to queue for the bathroom. Lights are needed for each bunk and then it would be perfect.

Staff was great! The room was clean and the beds all have outlets, a little shelf and night light. It's a little cramped though. We all had to squeeze past each other to get ready. If you are on the bottom bunk, be careful. I hit my head probably a dozen times. It's very low and this is coming from a short person! My main complaints were the common areas. They are in need of a serious revamp... a little gross and dirty. They are doing some renovations though, so hopefully that takes care of it.

The only downside about this hostel is that its bar is open to the public, and one morning we were staying there they closed off the bar/outside area to the backpackers as they had a huge party there starting from 10am. It also gets very busy at night in the bar/lots of drunk people. Not the place to go if you want to meet other backpackers and just chill.

Me and my girlfriend stayed for three nights making the most of our stop in Brisbane. Amazing staff made the stay great and almost to many activities to choose inbetween! Met great people and had a great time, keep in mind it's party 24/7. We were in a 8bed delux and it was very fresh and kept clean thanks bunk!

Good location, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere about the place. Activities in the evening by the hostel are a laugh, and easy to meet new people. If you want a fun couple of days, come to Bunk.

This hostel is in the process of refurbishing, the new rooms are great with a plug and light for each bed.

Hi there and thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We take all kinds of feedback very seriously :) I'm surprised about the hot water as we have recently changed our hot water valves and with our high occupancy sometimes the water needs to runs for a few seconds before heating up. Our onsite maintenance man will look into the room you've stayed in. Our friendly reception staff and onsite travel desks could have helped with your shuttle questions. Come back again soon Love BUNK xxx

Good location, good bar. The beds are really noisy though, so if you are in a share room, you can hear it everytime someone moves or whatever. But that's ok if you have a few drinks before. Also in my room a few of the locks were busted off the lockers so I just put my bag in there then hid my laptop in my sheets. Other than that, it was pretty good

Thanks for taking the time to drop some love our way!! Our onsite maintenance guy will investigate the lockers in your room and there's something special about bunks that go squeak in the night :) Love BUNK xxx

Great location, but the building is pretty old and not very well maintained. Staff are friendly, plenty to do, rooms were nice enough - though the top bunk on one of our beds had no ladder or other means to reach the top.

Second time I stayed at bunk. Staff is amazing, really helpful and friendly. Good rooms with lockers, lights and powerpoints by each bed and walls separating the bunks giving more privacy. Kitchen is big and clean. Found it a bit hard meeting others as there aren't any common areas part from the bar. Overall really good hostel though, definitely recommend.
