My stay in your place was excellent, Thank you!


54%

Es ist ein großes Hostel ca 15 min vom Stadtzentrum zu Fuß entfernt. Es verfügt im Eingangsbereich nicht über Rampen, meine schweren Gepäckstücke musste ich die Treppe hochhiefen. Mitarbeiter waren teilweise unfreundlich. Die Toiletten in den öffentlichen Bereichen waren dreckig, der Pool nicht wie auf den Bildern eher alt und rostig. Die Hostelbar wurde als öffentliche Disco genutzt, es war laut und voll...die Betten unbequem und bei jeder Bewegung geräusche machend. Wlan +$, waschen 8$

Decent hostel with good bathrooms, free breakfast and a great location. Massive downside was the cramped rooms and uncomfortable noisy beds. Individual light and electricity socket for each bunk is a great idea and very convenient.

By far the worst hostile I've stayed in so far. The staff is friendly and the place is clean, but I have never experienced such inconsiderate guests. If you're looking for a place to get some sleep, stay elsewhere.

Bunk backpackers is very accomidating for the backpackers way of life. The atmosphere is comfortable and provides an easy recovery location if you are just stopping by as well as a great place to stay for a while if you're looking for work. The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have the best Australian experience possible.

Was pleasantly surprised by this hostel. Very convenient & great value for money. Free breakfast is always a plus. Staff were good considering they are dealing wt backpackers all day. Most of them are internationals & hv limited knowledge of local area. Around the corner at Peterpan Travel, they hv knowledgeable staff and free Internet. Great stay. Reccommend.

Location not ideal compared to other hostels which are right in the city. Staff were pretty rude during check out and rooms were pretty un-socialable in their layout but there was added privacy from this so depends what you're after

Best hostel we have stayed at so far. Only complaint is that in our en-suite the shower hadn't been cleaned and there was a lot of black hair on the walls. But apart from that was a very modern and nice bathroom. Nice room and outside area. Would stay again and recommend to others.

I only stayed one night as a stopover to catch a flight but I had a pleasant stay. Staff were friendly and helpful. There was a lift so I didn't need to lug my heavy suitcase up loads of stairs. A bit of a walk into town but no more than 15 mins and if you go by the river route it's really pretty. 24 hour reception made my early morning check out a breeze. Improvements: please fix the dryers! Of the 8 that were provided only 3 were working and in a hostel of this size can mean a long wait.

Nice enough spot with typical aussie pricing - though better value than the other hostels in Brisbane. Also, reception sell the airtrain to the airport for $15, but you can get there for $6.70 (or $4.66 if you have a go card) by training from Fortitude Station to Toombul, then taking bus 590 to Skygate Mall. From Skygate there is a free shuttle going every 10 min to the international and domestic terminals.

The staff was friendly, there were several enclosed showers and toilets, there were washers and dryers as well as free internet. The location was very good and there was a bar attached. There were lockers in the room and some beds had outlets next to them. My only complaint would be the extremely squeaky beds. Everything else was tops.

Near the bars, far from the city. Nice atmosphere but the rooms felt a bit cramped.

Very nice room, a lovely breakfast and heaps of space in the kitchen. The hostel's free transfer to the lone pine sunctuary was incredibly useful and if you buy the tickets from the hostel you get a bagpacker's discount! The only complain would be the Internet I 'purchased' to have high speed Internet in my room which was painfully slow (slower even than the free wifi). Other than that, a lovely hostel!

Rating Bunk for me is difficult as I am NOT a backpacker and am comparing it to other forms of accommodation I usually use, like hotels or BnBs. So, if you are a backpacker and love sharing a dorm with other similar travelers, you are going to LOVE the Bunk hostel. And as far as hostels go, Bunk is probably one of the best. However, if you are anything like me and usually stay in hotels or BnBs, if privacy is important to you, then you are NOT going to enjoy your stay at Bunk.

Thanks for taking the time to give us a review, and for being so balanced and considering that this isn't a hotel etc and factoring that in. We do have private accommodation available for anything from rooms for just one person to apartments for a group of up to 6 so if you would like to come and stay with us again we are happy to offer those options to you!
