"Don't go in the girls bathroom. You'll have to leve the hostel without a refund." "Don't go out on the balcony. You'll have to leave the hostel without a refund." "Do your dishes, othervise you have to pay 20 aud. Or leave the hostel without a refund." "Don't bring people from outside. You'll have to pay 150 aud fine." I've never been to a hostel with so many rules. Good and big rooms thou.
The hostel is alright, but noting special. But guys if you close the reception earlier you should tell people who want to check out...
stayed for 1 night and it was fine. It is a few blocks from the train station.
booked twin room within a 8er dorm room!! beds in all rooms years old and very loud, you hear turning the people everytime, no good sleeping kitchen/eating area not welcoming, but clean conclusion: there are a lot more interesting hostels just next door, money/value not that good
An okay hostel near the city centre. The beds were so squeaky that even a small movement made a horrible sound. The showers were bad. The staff was very friendly!
This is a really nice little hostel - I ended up extending my stay as a few days didn't feel like enough. The staff were great and really helpful and the people staying there really made it. If I'm ever back in Brisbane this is definitely where I'll stay.
Friendly staff, Pretty clean, the place looked like it had been recently renovated too. Would stay again.
A hostel with a friendly atmosphere and a very convenient location both to Brisbane CBD and to Southbank
Not a bad hostel, near to a big supermarket and a short walk from the city. My only issue was the noise level, so if you dont mind not sleeping till the early hours (even with earplugs I could still hear everyone) then its a nice place
Free breakfast with coffee, toast and cereal/muesli is very good - well equipped kitchen as well. The staff is very friendly and funny. I was located next to the entrance area and could hear people at night. Still I managed to sleep very well.
Decent hostel, not the nicest but it was the people staying there that made it fun. Close by the Roma station and a quick walk to the library, downtown and south bank. You have to pay extra for internet which I didn't like. The beds were also extremely squeaky.
Everything is generally ok. Nice local indie bar next to the hostel. It takes about 15 to 20mins to walk to mall area, bar area etc. Fairly near the train station. Would have appreciated if the staff didnt put my shoes and luggage on my bed during the cleaning!! They could have moved around abit. Else, pleasant experience.

Nice little hostel with a very good location! Really helpful and friendly staff. Common room, kitchen bathrooms and the dorms were alright, I can't complain! ;-) The only thing that was a bit annoying were the creaky bunkbeds - I felt like waking everyone up when I was turning in my bed. But oh well, apart from that - good hostel!
I really liked this hostel. It's nice, clean and it's not too big. The only thing is that there are too many people on long term stays, it'd be nicer if there were more real backpackers.
Decent hostel. Big spacious bedroom. However terrible mattress, bent in middle and no support. Very noisy creaky bunk beds. Bathroom good size but not the cleanest. Good common area with large dining table and sofas. Lots of warning signs telling you how to behave or they'll keep your key deposit.
Very nice and friendly staff, wooden floor in the rooms!! wohoo!
Beds were really old and my bunk had a massive dip in the middle with sellotape wrapped around the bed to seemingly keep it together. Nice staff, good location. Kitchen very small for the amount of people using it.
Good hostel. But since everything has timber floor, you can hear everything...
I stayed at this hostel for 8 days ...i really enjoyed there..i have just positive comments for that hostel..For that money it is really worth it. .
The kitchen was pretty small but the rooms were spacious, an average place
