Not a lot of floor space for luggage but it does it's job: comfortable beds, clean showers and toilets, generally tidy kitchen. Only negatives really was Internet only available in the reception area or on the third floor, and at night the air con got a bit too cold, but all you needed was to ask for an extra blanket at reception. A nice hostel!

A very chilled out hostel. Loved the rooftop balcony! It was a little annoying to pay a deposit for plates and that the kitchen was shut for cleaning when we wanted to cook but I guess they have to do it sometime. The place was really clean and almost felt more like a hotel.

Reallly cool place. Roof chill area is awesome. Clean bathrooms. Bathrooms are unisex which is a little different but not a big deal. Parking situation is a little annoying. Hard to park at in heavy traffic. Parkade is locked and need assistance whever you want to leave.

The room was very small, there wasn´t even enough space to store our luggage. The air- con in the room wasn´t adjustable and the windows couldn´t be opened and therefore it was too cold. The kitchen is too small for the number of guests. 5 people cooking at the same time was nearly impossible and the facilities didn´t work properly. Wouldn´t stay there again. The only good thing is the location near the city centre.

Friendly staff, booked a 4 bed dorm and we got an upgrade to a private room on arrival which was a nice touch. Good location for greyhound bus. Nice outdoor roof terrace. Rooms could do with an update but they were clean. Only Complaint would be the kitchen, it's far too small and someone took our food out the fridge and left it on the side, not good in the heat!

Drunk people in a really messed up place. It's loud and doors and lockers are not working. Bathrooms are full off bugs and toillettes are shitted all the time. It stinks in that small rooms and there's not even a fan. A terrible, cannabis infected place. Worst hostel I've ever been.

Fantastic for a really friendly and non-intimidating atmosphere. Everyone was incredibly friendly and easy to get on with. Location is really good for the coach terminal, cbd however is a pleasant walk away. Would definitely return here if I come to brisbane again.

The car park only holds 6 cars and works on first come first serve basis so if your arriving in the afternoon it's unlikely you'll get a space. Parking on the street is expensive and again only has a few spaces. If you have a car I'd look at other options

Not at all what I expected from one of the top google referenced backpackers. Staff where very unprofessional (tits out,sucking on lollie pops whilst talking to paying$$$ customers) and the room was not up to standards, with unisex bathrooms not advertised appropriately on the website.

Our dorm room at Chill was freezing - summer, nice temperature outside and the room so cold we all had to ask for blankets and sleep in warm clothes, even after speaking to reception twice about it. Ridiculous to air condition to that extent. Wifi only works while you're using it, you have to log in each time you want to check messages. No cafe, bar or pool. Just wanted to make that clear for anyone else comparing hostels in Brisbane! Others probably have better facilities. But close to station.

Cool little hostel close to the City and Southbank. Great public transport access. Easy to find. Didn't like having to pay for the wifi though. Good places to hang and meet other backpackers on the roof.

Very quiet in the double rooms, more like a hotel although at six months pregnant the bed was very uncomfortable. Overall good place though

Staff were really friendly! Roof terrace has amazing views and it's right next to the Roma bus terminal. Girls only bathroom is a bonus. Down sides were the 4 bed girls dorm being too small for our luggage, carpet floors in rooms feel like they could use a hover. Overall a decent place to stay for a couple of nights in the city centre!

It was ok! Bit far from city center but close to trains... Cleaning was efficiently done! People staying there a bit noisy!
