The hostel is quite far out from the city - but was only a 10 minute bus ride so not too bad. However, everyone here is long term stayers and they don’t bother with anyone but each other….so not exactly social. But the hostel itself is beautiful, so it’s nice if you want to just chill. Cat was the best bit lol

Overall a cheap 2 night stay in Brisbane. Front desk staff (especially the woman) were very nice. Free shuttle to the bus station ! Room was hot, hot as BLAZES. If you don’t cope with heat at night, don’t sleep here. No a/c and minimal fans, must’ve been at least 28 in there all night. Cleaning is sub par, arrived and unfortunately there was a bloody condom under the bed, even at the price I wouldn’t expect that. Social ish hostel. Kitchen is tiny and pretty gross. Overall you get what u pay

staff is lovely. hostel is outside the city and a fair walk away from all the fun spots. no ceiling fan or air conditioner, only personal swivel fans. the swivel fans do not reach the top bunk. some days the heat made sleeping impossible.
