Hostelworld says:

If you're looking to make friends, the Bunk Backpackers Hostel is the perfect place. According to one past guest, 'the bar outside is really relaxed' making it 'easy to meet people', so you can bag some cool new friends along with your stay. The hostel is located on the edge of Chinatown, just a 20 minute walk from Brisbane's famous Botanic Gardens and the central business district. After partying the night away in the nightclub downstairs you can nurse your hangover with a free breakfast, available every day.

    4 dorms with our own bathroom so that was kinda nice! :) The location was good, near the bars and the restaurants! People at the reception where nice and helpful. The ones doing the pub crawl where funny and made the night worth it! Cool place to meet people, good wifi, but youll have to pay 4$per day.. A big terrace and a bar so that was good to meet people! I would definitely go back there!!
