Over-priced! Location is ok, but a good 20+ min walk from the hustle & bustle in Red Light Dist. The room had carpeting and smelled of gym bags. Our beds were clean but they did not clean the adjacent beds, which had 3 different sets of guests, during our stay. There is only 1 light in the room so you can't help but disturb sleeping roommates if you need it. 2/3 toilets unable to use on our floor at the time, nothing to dry your hands. Only 1 outlet for 8 guests to share. No WiFi in room.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Clean, new, comfortable. Each bed has a lamp, shelf, and lockable cupboard with a plug in. Never had to wait for the toilet or shower. Very clean. Perfect location right in front of the U. Great breakfast buffet. Do the walking tour with Matt and the Anti-Pub Crawl.

The worst hostel I've stayed in on the East Coast so far. It's cheap and the location is great because it's close to the Greyhound station, the central train station and all the central sights in Brisbane. However, it is pretty run down and not particularly clean. You don't need to turn on the Cold in the shower because the water doesn't get hot enough. There are openings above the doors so you hear everything from everyone else on your floor. We had to switch rooms because the bunk bed was lop-sided and ma

Hi, and thanks for taking the time out to send us your feedback - even if it isn't all that positive :( A lot of your concerns (regarding the lift, showers, general state) come from the age of the building. The Palace was originally built in 1911 and has been heritage-listed by the State Government as a historic building. As such we are limited with what we can do with things like the lift (said to be the second-oldest in Brisbane), while we are looking to do a big renovation later this year to get the old girl up and ready for her centenary. We also have tv rooms on levels 2 and 4. With regards to your comments about the kitchen, the reason we close the kitchen for an hour between 3pm and 4pm is to get it cleaned thoroughly after the breakfast/lunch rush and before everyone gets ready for dinner. We also close it of a night time so that staff can thoroughly clean it again so that people have a clean kitchen to come to first thing in the morning. Concerning your bed being lopsided, it is our understanding that once it was brought to our attention that we changed your room; later that day maintenance went upstairs and fixed the bed up for the next guest. Likewise for the laundry door we've had maintenance fix that one. We hope you enjoy the rest of your Australian adventure! Cheers, The Brisbane Base Crew

Probably the best hostel I've stayed in! Good location right in the Gas Lamp district but pretty far from beaches. Easy to find and close to transit. Key for the front door and the room, and lockers in the room. Laundry facilities and clean bathrooms. Free internet access. AMAZING free dinner and other nightly deals/events. Great place to meet other travellers. Would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.
