Wifi is available only 15 minutes, even if syating at the hostel.


Rooms could be a little bit nicer but enough for having a good sleep


Receptionisty was fantastic. Really helpful and very informative.

This hostel wants to be YHA. Even the name is incorrect, it's not chill at all. Very corporate, you have to pay for WiFi which is absurd. The receptionist who checked me in didn't know much of Brisbane or what to do in the city. The room and showers were fine, nothing special. The third floor has a great view of the city it is also the party area.


Fantastic staff, great location, shame about the wifi.


Honest review- don't stay here! The rooms are so tiny and cramped I couldn't believe how they fit the bunks in there! The staff could care less about helping you. The whole place needs a good clean! Kitchen is awful! Wifi is too expensive and it's shocking. Shame because it's a really good location.


Cramped and overpriced, no free wifi, but located close to train and bus stations which is why we chose it. Tiny tiny hot dorm room.


Really handy location for exploring the city but wasn't much of an atmosphere during our stay. Kitchen was quite dirty if you wanted to cook after about 7, although having an all female bathroom was a bonus & was pretty clean. Staff were friendly & helped if they could but weren't overly involved. Wifi was expensive & only worked on a couple of floors which was annoying!


Great backpacker vibe! Room was clean and very easy to get about (just a stone's throw from the train station). The movie room also came in handy when the weather was rubbish.


It would be more appropriate if there are cups and other kitchen stuffs available.

This is the worst hostel I've been too. 1) You make your own bed on arrival. 2) The place is full of long term guests who have no respect for others or the building. They're very unwelcoming. 3) You have to pay to use the plates and cutlery - which I was told about while cooking my food, of course my food burnt by the time the useless staff provided anything. 4) I gave up using the kitchen after day one because it is a complete mess. 5) The bathrooms are disgusting.
