Hostelworld says

Cool, contemporary and convenient, the Brisbane City YHA is the perfect hostel for groups or solo travellers looking to mix with fellow adventurers and make some friends. You don?t even need to step out the front door to find a party, the bar is always bouncing and there?s plenty of entertainment besides, like pool tables, swimming pool and a games room where they hold frequent Wii competitions. It?s close to the centre too, as well as within walking distance of the transit centre, so you won?t be getting lost.

Decent place to spend the night. It's a bit of a walk from the main bus stop but nothing too crazy. I was only there for one night but it seemed surprisingly social.
