Although my stay wasn't bad, the room I was in had nowhere to store any of your belongings. The floor was covered with everyones laundry and luggage leaving things very messy. The room also had a very strange odor. One of the mornings that I was there, I had to take a cold shower as there was no hot water left. Not something I'm used to in Australian hostels. There were no lockers so I would not have felt safe leaving my valuables unattended. Definately a party hostel if thats what you like

The outside area were great with BYO! The atmosphere was great but a lot a people had stayed at the hostel for a long time and it was hard to socialise. The room it self was OK but it was such a mess that we didn't even have a place to put our stuff. The facilities were pretty good but the kitchen was really dirty with no cloths.

You have to pay for wi-fi and can only get it in certain places. room was very cold - had not more blankets available, what a joke. Rooms are TOOOO CROWDED. Not enough room for luggage and people. Better to keep walking down the street, there are 2-3 others that are much better!!!!

Hostel was very clean, good location to the city and the clubs. Staff all very helpful and lovely! Can take your own drink so saves money. Reception is open 24/7 which I liked 😊

Very, very cold and they were out of blankets?! Dirty kitchen with dish liquid that's mixed with water and no clean tea towels to dry dishes. Wouldn't stay there again.

The dorm room was filthy: peoples' clothes were strewn alongside old crisp packets and half-empty cereal bowls. The door was kept wedged open by a waste paper bin: this was I'm told, because a few of the long term residents had lost their key cards and didn't want to pay for new ones. Showers were lukewarm, there's the usual nonsense of having put down a deposit if you want to use a plate and WiFi access is metered. Staff are friendly though and the view from the roof top is quite nice.

This hostel is awesome! We booked a 12 bed but they had no space so we were upgraded to a 3 bed and had room to ourselves at no extra cost! Free bbq was awesome and staff were great :) friendly atmosphere!

I have been there for 3 nights and this hostel was alright. My room was ok but to small for 5 People and the luggage. The rooftop, Kitchen and the bathroom were good and clean.

The kitchen, terrace and movie area are really nice - a good place to socialise with nice views of the city. I paid $28 for a 10 bed dorm but my room was actually a 5 bed. Still it was quite cramped and there are no lockers - I've stayed in much better rooms elsewhere for the same price. Plus the air con couldn't be turned off so the room was freezing.

We stayed here for a week while looking for a more permanent accommodation. This Hostel has more of a hotel feel and the key card system was a little annoying as the card kept failing. Very clean and roof terrace is nice to sit out at night time. The hostel had pizza and sausage nights which is a good way to meet other travellers. Location was good only 5-10mins walk from Roma Street St and about 15mins walk to CBD.

Much better than Base X Brisbane. I would go to this hostel over that one any day.

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!

nice place, the rooftop bar is great! Conveniently located, you can walk to the city center and the next supermarket is just around the corner. Wi-fi also available for purchase, but only in the lobby, not in the rooms. AC is too cold.

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.

Can't comment much on the kitchen facilities or any other than the showers as i arrived late, went out for the evening then left extremely early. Only gripe would be the size of the shower cubicles. I am not a large person at all yet still had my back touching the wall and stomach to the shower curtain. Apart from this everything was great. Was upgraded on arrival, and brilliant atmosphere in the dorm and the hostel as a whole
