Staff at check-in was very friendly, got a free welcome drink and information where to go for dinner. The room was clean and cool (aircon), however there were only 6 lockers for 8 people, but people in my dorm were quiet and considerate. I got an upgrade from the 20-bunk dorm to the 8-bunk en-suite and had a very good comfortable night s sleep. The location was ideal for me, I fully enjoyed my stay and thought it was great value for 20$.

Great kitchen! Would have been nice with a good common room though.

Squeaky beds, good mattresses, ensuite cleaned daily, aircon reasonable temp but could have been cooler, WiFi is weak. Common areas are very lacking, but there is a bar with a huge beer garden most people hang out in. The bar does get loud Thurs-Sat because it is actually a club. Booked Lone Pine Koala Sanc. trip through them and it was very nice, drop off included in price of ticket. Lots of people going through here for a few nights at a time so not a huge community.

One of very few hostel that really get one very very important things- BED/ READING LIGHT! Also a great plus for power plugs and a shelf by each bed. Really clean hostel, more like a hostel than a hostel. I only stayed for one night but I have already made a reservation at Bunk for when I come back to Brisbane.

Great staff, location and facilities. Nicer kitchen than most restaurants and clean, modern washrooms. They have the slowest wifi in the 1st world though. Wouldn't work in the rooms, and barely work in the lobby. I would rather and did walk a block to Duncan or Wagaya in Chinatown and used the free wifi provided by the City Council or Telstra.

Decent enough hostel,. The bar didnt quite live upto the standard they make out and the pool looks toxic, but cheap enough.

They should mention online that this is a dry hostel and they're no common areas to drink or socialise. Didn't meet a single person whilst staying here

After staying in a few hostels in Brisbane this has been the best. Good value for money. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast included. And if you don't mind feeling like a bit of a sardine in a tin, the dorms aren't bad either. Would stay again.

Great place. Staff were really friendly. I was worried it might have been a party Hostel full of 18 year olds going crazy, but you can hardly hear the bar from the top floors. The place was hit by a storm, but the staff handled it well and accommodated everyone, which was nice. About a 10 min walk to the centre. Thanks!

I thought a $10 charge for sleeping in was a bit rough. Maybe you could offer a wake-up service?
