    I loved this place because it's just outside the city and not too hectic. The people are good, it's really clean, and you can party if you want or just have a quiet one in. Washers and dryers actually work and are decent price ($4 each) you can walk into the main city in about 20 minutes, or take an e scooter in about 5 minutes (only like $3 ) and West End is already such a cool neighborhood and it has everything you'd need right at your doorstep. One of the better hostels I've stayed in

    Great for an overnight stay with my girls. There’s some things that could be spruced up for a nicer environment but generally a great place in a very cool part of Brisbane.

    Awesome staff. Ask anything and they can make it happen totally stress free for yourself. Cleaning staff are brilliant. Very thorough. Cleaner than the last two 160-200 dollar a night motels. Parking is manageable. Lots to do. Never a dull moment. Great wifi reception. Give the staff a pay rise. I would employ the staff here. They really are an asset to any business. Congratulations in this economy you are outstanding.

    Great place to be. The place is well-taking care and the people who stay there are top quality. I think it is a hostel for people who are temporarily working in Australia at the year gap. So you easily find smart and intelligent people there. The staff was supeeeeeeeerb ! helpful on all maters.

    Good and quiet location, close to everything by walk in the nice district "West End". Beautiful view on Brisbane! A lot of thing to do: pool, hammock, chest, books, TV room...and a blackboard with some news to do/see in Brisbane. Room is ok but when is full it's too small. Kitchen very very too small!!

    Easy enough to check in and go through things. Didn’t mention a deposit in the booking site, not clearly anyways, not that that was a problem. Room had left over or something on the wall, people smoking right outside the room, noisy people at one policing noise or anything. Staff were lovely.
