If you are staying in a double room, you will be staying at the house behind the main building where the first floor is shared with 4 other couples. There was only one toilet and one bathroom so we had to take turns. The kitchen was small so any time where two parties are trying to cook/prepare food, it gets... More

We stopped here for only one night before travelling further north. It was however, a super little hostel: Clean, quiet, great communal areas, powerful showers and small, but cosy rooms. Great value for money in Australia. The location is excellent: an approx 8 minute walk to the train station and 15 mins from the main shopping area of city. The... More

I had so many issues with this hostel it's hard to know where to begin. When I got to my room, it was clear it hadn't been cleaned for a while. I was there 4 nights and had several roommates check out and the room was never cleaned! (Though they did empty the bins daily.) The fridge (in dorm not... More

Hello SilentShadow101. I notice that you stayed here over half a year ago. Since then, we've undergone many changes,- one of them is a wifi-upgrade. It's better than it used to be, but it's hard to get into all the corners of so big a building. We intend to move our office soon and we'll try to get the wifi... More

Hello Katie R. We're sorry that you didn't have a good experience at our hostel. You're right: the staff-member should have taken the time to give you adequate directions. But to be fair: it's not all too easy to explain over the phone which is probably why the staff-member asked if you had a map on you. Nevertheless, the walk... More

This is our favourite hostel so far. We booked a double room which was out the back in the separate part of the hostel away from the main part of the hostel. Our little 'house' was next to the pool. We were essentially in our own house sharing with 3 other rooms. We had our own kitchen and bathroom shared... More

Hello Cazzie181. Thank you for your kind words, we're glad to hear that you enjoyed your time here. The "no-alcohol" policy is actually very recent and has been put into place because we've had too much trouble with alcohol-related violence. We're very sorry that we had to do it, but alcohol (or rather: people influenced by too much alcohol) has... More

Stayed five nights in a private twin. It was clean and well-maintained, with a fridge in the room, though ventilation was not good. The common room area & kitchen were congenial & decently equipped in the private room bldg, but the main dorms' ones are not welcoming or well laid out.. Staff are intelligent and capable enough, though typical of... More

Hello VitalianBrother, it's been very interesting to read your review, so thank you for having taken the time to do so. You've made some good points: the kitchen of the private rooms is objectively seen better than the dorm-ones, but it also follows the prices. Regardless, the dorms-kitchen is fully equipped as well and we try to keep it clean.... More

Hi R12000, thank you for leaving a review. We are a very small hostel and we do try our best to be accommodating. There is unfortunately little we can do about the size of the kitchen -- which usually works out well though, or the set-up of the communal area. The latter not without compromising a lot of seating space... More

We had a car and they allowed us to park on their drive. They is on street parking but with restrictions on the street. You can walk to the train station but if arriving this way it is an up hill walk. Nice seating area at the back where people socialise. Rooms were not that spacious but were adequate for... More

Hello GUESStheGUEST, thank you for the review. Yes, there are parking restrictions in just about all of the city-center and surroundings. This and the fact that Brisbane is not located on flat land, are things that we can't do anything about. Luckily the walk is only five minutes and we provide passes that allow for unlimited parking.
