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.

Good hostel. Great atmosphere for such a large hostel. The activities were all awesome and the staff were super friendly right form the start. The rooms are super clean and so are the bathrooms. Located out of the CBD of Brisbane but still a good location if you want to go out. There's a bar downstairs so you don't need to go far for a night out and the noise was not a problem. Great hostel for a great price. Excellent kitchen facilities also.


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.


Pretty average hostel. Very clean. Location is decent. Staff were alright. I was a good mix of quiet and party for me


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.


hostelworld says " call for a pick up " . not true , they have fixed timetabals for pick ups, and they never match the greyhound timetables. waited more the 1 hour when first arrived


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.


Hostel was perfect for a party weekend.Great location to all party spots.
