Stay for 5 nights. Good value for a twin room. Great location to reach city centre. Just hop on the route 196 bus which will stop next to hostel! Speedy free wifi! Only one thing pointed is that you can hear everything especially when you staying a room faced the main road.

If only the toilet lights can go on for 3 minutes longer it would be awesome.

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback, the toilet light sensor was recently installed and had the wrong setting. It has now been changed so that it stays on for more than 10 minutes at a time. We hope to see you again next time you are in Brisbane!

The hostel is clean and tidy, good if you just want a simple room. Patrick the hostel manager is the nicest man, so so helpful and kind, he even gave me and all my bags a lift to my new accommodation! Wonderful guy, made the stay.

Overall good stay, and Patrick was very friendly and very organised. The hostel lacked atmosphere as didn't have a communal area, so everyone was just in their rooms.

Owner was friendly and helpful when we saw him. Rooms are basic but good private rooms for what you pay, plus you get a fridge in your room which is good. Wifi is good. Close to coles and not far walk into the city. Would deffo stay again! Might see you next month! :) can get cold at night but just ask to get extra blankets!

No security lockers provided. No duvet provided only sheets which was too cold. No towel provided unless requested and paid for. Not great atmosphere but good enough for one night. Very helpful staff once you call for them on the phone in the hallway. No reception.

It's a good place to stay if you want something basic and clean! The owner wasn't around much, but super friendly and always just a phonecall away. It surprised me that he texted me the morning I arrived about where I could find the key. It was in a small locker with a lock that he texted me the code for. Surprising, but worked very well. Hostel is in a good place in West End near a big supermarket. Would definetly recommend the place!

When I arrived person was ver unhelpful and did not look happy. Rooms were very stuffy even though there was a fan for 5 . There was only one fridge between 5 which was unhygienic in the room. Lack of space to eat people eating in room nowhere else to chill out bathroom was dirty hairs in the showers Mold on walls etc kitchen was no better it was dirty. Beds had plastic covers on mattered which is not good considering how hot it was No local information eg local map

The owner is a great guy. I'm a sucker for hostel owners that know me by name. He wa really helpful and made sure people were comfortable and happy with their stay. I would definitely stay here again.
