    Free wifi and brekkie, clean rooms, friendly staff and the perfect location for exploring Brisbane - a stone's throw away from buzzy west end! Very basic hostel with not much atmosphere or decor, but a great base camp for someone who is just after the bed! It was clean and relatively quiet at night, so ticked all the boxes for me! Would be nice to have a bit of a common area, but I would still stay there again
