Good place to stay. Not a central location but most aren't in Brisbane. The guy in my room was def long term and selling weed out of the dorm. Not the best room to be in. But as the staff was chatting with him they probably didn't care and knew to begin with. If they don't know I was in the room where the keep the baby doll in the door prop.

Need safer place in dorm rooms for stuff - safes or lockers. Been in much worse hostels in terms of cleanliness - glad we got new sheets. The patios and the quiz night were super fun and I liked the international vibe. Wifi situation was a rip off though, pay by the minute and then it only worked in the lobby? Given all of this, it was more than doable for the price

Biggest complaint was the lack of a locker in the room and not being able to store things safely. Also rooms got messy very quickly as wasn't very much storage space. Otherwise was a great hostel!

Everything was fine and the stuff was very friendly and reacted to complaints immediately! I can recommend this hostel to every one since the value for money is so good. However, I have to say that our was a little bit small and there were no lockers.

I had the air conditioning right in front of my head. With the price of the room I think it will be normal to have free wifi. The two bathroom didn't have hot water and the toilets were often disgusting. The frige was too full and not organize to put everything into. But reception people was niced.

This hostel isn't a bad hostel and great social scene etc but the facilities aren't as good as others. You have to pay a deposit for your plate, cup and cutlery rather than a plentiful kitchen of utensils. The wifi is only available on the top floor or bottom floor which can be a nightmare because it gets busy on the bottom floor with everyone using wifi and space is limited and the top floor is where the party is at so always quite busy. The staff however are really great!

This hostel is as it name says. However the roof deck is great to meet people and the staff are A+. Carlo who works nights is really cool with the guest inquiries no matter how inane they are. Chill is great if you want to be near the roma street train station as well.

Hostel was ok, I stayed in a 8 bed female dorm and the room was far too small and only had one power point which isn't the most convenient! The communal area was nice and the kitchen clean. The female bathroom was a bit dirty and the seat missing from one of the toilets. You have to pay for wifi and it doesn't work all over the hostel which is really frustrating

Was really good hostel, we only had to stay there one night as we had to fly out of Brisbane airport and it was close to the station.

Unfortunately, the hostel was below our expectations. We had no window in the room (it seemed most rooms on our floor had now window as doors were left open during the night to at least anticipate some kind of 'fresh' air). The floor was disgusting - no fresh air was able to come in. Luckily, we only stayed one night (otherwise we might have suffocated). The 'female only' bathroom was dirty. Very noisy also. I don't think the 'no alcohol in rooms' policy was enforced which didn't help noise.

Staff has been unhelpful and impolite. Wifi didn't work but if it did then super slow. One room card key didn't work as well. Air con super loud and no possibility to turn it off. Mattresses uncomfortable. Kitchen and room were quite clean. Amenities old and in poor condition. Wouldn't recommend to stay.

overall it's good hostel. Location is perfect. Staff is very friendly and helpful. In the 21st century they should get wifi. The one they offer costs 7$ per hour. so basically if you use few hours of wifi, you are paying the price of pretty nice hotel instead. Also I missed lockers, if you share a room with strangers, you usually need one. You can leave your things at reception, but it's inconvinient to do several times a day. however it's still safe.

No lockers in the rooms, that's why the security in my opinion is poor. WiFi isn't free. Location is nearby the railway station.

The reception staff were abit rude at most times and $10 dollars for a towel is quite a silly ask but other than that was a prime spot to stay for soundwave over the weekend I was there!
