    I had a great stay. The staff were really friendly and accommodating. Conveniently located for what I needed and great value for money. Had everything needed for cooking etc nice pool but being on a busy road it's a little noisy which I expected. I brought ear plugs with me so it didn't bother me at all.

    This is a 3 story block without a lift so keep that in mind if you have a bit of gear. Its a well run and clean hostel. Its the only hostel I have stayed at where the staff actually wash and hang the sheets out in the sun! So crispy and clean. The location is a little away from the roaring night life of 'Surfers Paradise' but its super convent with a tram stop out the front and a large bottle shop and supermarket within 300m of the front door. No aircon, tiny wall fan Very Hot in summer time!

    I really enjoyed my stay at Aquarius, it was the first hostel I had stayed in since arriving in Brisbane and I couldn’t recommend it more. The staff have been really nice and really helpful when it came to booking anything. Unfortunately it wasn’t as busy the few days I stayed so there wasn’t much of an atmosphere but I still enjoyed it. The location is great, tram stop is just across the road and it’s only a 5 minute walk to the closest shopping centre which is great!! I’ll definitely be back!

    Good location close at the tram station, very well equipped kitchen and clean facilities. No lockers available and room either stuffy or loud from the traffic. Can’t say too much about the atmosphere during off-season.

    Das Hostel liegt direkt an einer Hauptstraße, welche sehr laut ist. Allerdings ist es nur eine Minute zur Bahnstation entfernt.Außerdem hatten die Bettlaken Flecken & wenn man nach einem neuen gefragt war es genauso fleckig. Die Duschen hatten keine Tür zum abschließen sondern nur nen Vorhang, waren allerdings einigermaßen sauber.Die anderen Hostelbewohner waren >27 Jahre alt.Man konnte also keine neuen Leute in seinem Alter kennenlernen.Generell war man froh wenn man aus dem Hostel draußen war
