Friendly staff, made you feel welcome. (Philip, Stacy, Paul from the travel desk ) Not so good: -no freezer -cooking cutlery could be more
Only stayed here for 1 night in a private double. It smelt lovely, was clean and tidy. The shower was cold though. Reception guys were lovely

Bunk is a brilliant hostel in a lovely part of town. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful; and the 8 bed dorm with en-suite shower and toilet was clean and comfortable. It is very much an upbeat hostel, great parties at Birdees as well!
The rooms and beds were nice. I found it very hard to meet people though, so probably not as suitable for a solo traveller. I liked the activities that were planned, like the tranny bingo.
We are a couple and stayed for 7 nights, 4 in one 6er upstairs and 3 more in a 6er downstairs. The rooms were tidy and clean. The free WiFi around the reception was ok, the best free WiFi in a hostel we had. Paid WiFi in rooms for 12 Dollar a week was fine. Free breakfast and welcome drink was a nice plus. The staff is almost nice, sometimes too busy and a bit overworked, but acceptable in total. We would stay again.
It's best hostel one of I've tried in Australia ! I've stayed for 1 night but I did very nice experience . Breakfast is included to price , Free wifi in Lobby and They dropped me Brisbane Transit center as free ! I'll come back again !

Good place to stay. Many lockers inside of the rooms, a socket for every bed, clean room. Poor ar conditioning situation in the rooms in the Jungle and the bed lights were all damaged. Free wifi just near the reception and not very good. Not much things to do in a raining day, except go to the night club/bar Birdees. 24h reception with friendly staff. Free breakfast, Free shuttle to Transit Centre where the Greyhound bus departs. Close to Chinatown and walking distance to Woolworths.
In THis HOstel i meet amazing People. They have a really cool bar and disco. reasonable prices. The Staff is Good, someone working during the night look a little bit cold but then he changed. Nice Common Area, computers, hige loundry room a lot a lockers, few restaurant shops around.
Not so secretly a Nomads. Actual quote from staff "There isn't much to do here, just drink at our bar." I know Nomads branded places are desperate to milk every dollar out of you, but that's a new low. There's plenty of awesome nightlife right around the corner! Air conditioning is a lifesaver in Brisbane, unfortunately the toilets are a sauna.
30 minutes walk from transit terminal. But they offer a bus. Room nice having bathroom ensuite, which have been cleaner, but ok for the money Staff was not unfriendly, but they kind ignored us upon arrival. Talked to each other and just giving us paperwork without any explanation. Was like we were disturbing them.
A great hostel, right next to the Valley party area and walking distance to the city. Brekky included is a bonus
Really nice hostel. Rooms were comfy, air con, each bed with its own light, lockers in room. In general all good. The free breakfast is definitely a great plus :)
Our beds where making many noises. Moving was impossible without waking up especially in the upper bunk bed. Room was very small, lucky we where only 3 in a 4-bed room which was already very difficult with our luggage.
This hostel was definitely a great choice for us. There was always something going on, it was only a 20 minute walk straight down a road to the City and the staff were friendly. It's easy access from the airport shuttle and just next to a strip of bars for some nightlife. Great value for money - I would definitely stay again!
Really decent breakfast and atmosphere. The attached bar seems to be one of the livilest places in the area with locals going there too, cheap drinks! No BYOB hostel
Cool place, right by Fortitude Valley, so plenty of bars nearby and you can get back to the CBD with relative ease! Great hostel for a city
My second stay at this hostel- for a reason: its great. Has all the facilities you need, a short walk from the city centre, its very clean and great for socialising because of the bar and night club.
Stayed here a few years ago whilst on a working holiday visa, was here on and off about 6 months. Best hostel you'll ever go to. Friendly staff, great facilities, clean and it's a very sociable hostel with a bar out the back! Free wifi in reception area and free breakfast is a nice touch.
I've stayed in a bunch of hostels, and this is definitely tied for first. GREAT staff, extremely helpful and kind. Lively, colorful atmosphere, nice bar and dance club right next door. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Brisbane. It was really incredible here!
For the most part this is a pretty nice place. The bar is nice, and a great place to meet other backpackers. Little bonus: some rooms can get in to the free "lobby only" wifi. I'd encourage the hostel to work on extending the free wifi to the whole place. Biggest complaint, though, was the unbelievably squeaky beds. Please find some new bunk beds!
