Hostelworld says

Brisbane City Backpackers features a rooftop swimming pool, a cinema room, car parking, free Wi-Fi, a large kitchen, a busy onsite bar and clean and comfortable dorms. The rooftop terrace is particularly popular with Hostelworld guests, one of whom told us, ‘I loved the top of the hostel where you can enjoy a view over the city and look at the stars’. They’re located close to the river and near the rest of the city centre.

Pros: - Gives you a place to stay for the night - Really good common areas Cons: - The staff are absolutely atrocious. The two (I think Spanish) girls that I encountered were extremely unprofessional and passive aggressive. When I was trying to ask another male employee questions they came, extremely drunk, and interrupted the convo to the point where I just had to leave. - the kitchen and bathrooms are very dirty. Found roaches in the bathroom. - got out in a room with two girls who were there long term

Our dorm has some long term guests who had unpacked and sprawled their belongings across the room. Limited plug sockets and dirty socks down the side of our clean linen bed. Bathrooms were clean enough and fit for purpose (they were unisex). Kitchen had lots of unwashed dishes and hardly any space in fridges/cupboards for our food - not dissimilar to other hostels we have stated in though. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Pool and chill area looked nice.. Not sure we’d rush back..

It’s okay but not great. The kitchen was always kind of dirty, even the cutlery they handed out was not really clean. Bathrooms had no space to put your stuff, were okay clean. Rooms didn’t have lockers or again any place to put your stuff. Lots of long term people there
