It was sadly the worst hostel stay I had in the last 9 months of my travels. To start with, there was a misunderstanding with the shuttle pick up, which was not the end of the world, but was only made worse by an extremely unpleasant receptionist who checked me. The room was a complete mess, with other people's stuff scattered all over the floor and a dirty bathroom. On the plus side, the person checking me out was very friendly and the view from the terrace was gorgeous. Wouldn't stay again!
Best hostel I've ever stayed in. Good rooms and common areas. Fantastic price plus weekly deals make it a total bargain (for Australia). Location is in the west-end of Brisbane which has the best markets and food festivals. A bit out of the city but an hourly bus running from the hostel during the day makes this no issue. The hostel also had cheap food nights on a couple evenings a week. I would happily have stayed if my flights to Asia hadn't been booked!!
Bathrooms could be cleaner and some of the shower doors don't lock on the outside even though they appear locked from the inside - not good when shared male/female! Staff were very accommodating but a light doona/blanket for the dorms would have been a good idea is a bit chilly at night during cooler months.
LARGE HOSTEL, MEDIUM KITCHEN, LARGE HANG OUT/TV AREA, LOTS OF OUTSIDE SPACE, VERY NATURE LOOKING WITH TREES EVERYWHERE, TRANSFER TO SOUTH BANK AND CITY ALL THE TIME, GROCERY STORE NEARBY, BEST DEAL FOR THE MONEY IN BRISBANE
Great atmosphere and friendl staff, it was easy to get to know other backpackers. The staff was giving helpful advice and the shuttle is also very helpful, because the hostel is a bit out of the city centre. I really enjoyed the movie nights. Toilets and showers were clean. I can only recommend this place :)

Great facilities showers were superb BUT the doors on the single rooms were very noisy closing with a loud metallic clang unless you were very careful. Think it was something to do with the skylights n the air pressure. This did make for a restless night 's sleep.
Great atmosphere, very friendly people. No lockers, you have to rent cutlery and plates, the place smells a fair bit. Staff were helpful. Don't use the downstairs shower- it jumps between freezing and boiling!
Dirty rom and bathroom. Very messy kitchen. Friendly staff. Bus to town
Just a great bloody hostel! Great people, great location, always good movies and stuff playing if you want to relax, always nice people around if you want a chat or a drink. West End is a really great area too, so many great bars and cafes.
