This hostel is great. Super friendly and small. Nice and quite, definitely not a party hostel. Facilities we're clean and modern, made me feel at home. Only negative was the internet not being free and when you did pay for it the connection wasn't great and didn't reach everywhere in the hostel. We stayed when they were quiet and had... More

Spent 4 nights here in August 2014. Stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. We found the staff very welcoming and helpful, answering all our questions and sorting us with a parking permit for the car and early check-out. The neighborhood is very quiet and yet just 5 minutes from the bustling Caxton St district, and just a bit... More

Thank you for your feedback, R S, we're glad that you enjoyed your time here. We are indeed not the Hilton, but we also don't advertise as such as we are a quiet small hostel and pride ourselves on the friendly, laid-back atmosphere instead. More

My stay at Aussie Way was one of contradictions and a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand, the girl on reception was friendly and helpful. On the other, the signs around the hostel were full of warnings 'not to do' certain things. Which I can understand to a certain extent in what is backpacker accommodation, but having... More

Hello AJMartin001, and thank you for having taken the time for the thorough review. We're sorry to hear that your stay has not been as pleasant as it could have been, so perhaps some explanations are in place here. We are quite aware that there are many signs across the hostel. Most of them are duplicates of the same message... More

We stayed in two different rooms in the charming QLD house on Jessie street and it was absolutely fantastic. Quiet rooms, clean shared facilities (only 6 people share), close to the Barracks and Roma station, helpful staff. Recommend for couples who like peace, rest and quiet! The only negative would be wifi access: reception is not very good and it... More

Thank you Margarita A for your kind words, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay here. Thank you for your feedback as well on the WIFI. Unfortunately there is little to be changed there: our prices are similar to the hostels around us and the far ends of the hostel do have a slower connection, but there is adequate space... More

Aussieway is super unique because it is set in a residential area. The building itself is classic and the rooms are cozy, without the sterile, military look that a lot of high volume hostels have. It is quiet all the time and despite not being super modern, it is always clean. The central location is perfect, just a 5 minute... More

Me and my partner have really enjoyed our stay at Aussie way! The location is perfect, not to far from the city and just around the corner from Caxton street, also the transit centre is just a short walk away. The hostel is very clean and tidy, as they have a daily cleaner and the staff clean as well. We... More

I stayed at Aussie Way for a few days off the back of state of origin. It is just a few blocks up from Suncorp stadium and is within walking distance to the city as well as the barracks (they have some nicer cafes and a cinema there). This is the perfect place to stay if you want to opt... More

We stayed here for two nights in late May 2014. We were going to State of Origin Game 1, and this place is perfect in terms of location to the stadium - 10 mins walk. It is a lovely old Queenslander, with a nice big bathroom. The kitchen is quite small but we didn't use it much. Like all old... More

Thank you for your review, LM631. We appreciate the feedback. And you are right about the rooms at the back (generally) being more quiet: the main building consists mostly out of dorms, whilst the other building is primarily for couples. More

This hostel has a very nice feel to it. Its in a nice location, walking distance to the city and close to Coles. Its not a partyhostel since you need to be quieter after i think 22.00, which is nice, makes sleeping easier. Rooms would have been nicer if the long stay guests would clean up their stuff more. But... More

Thank you very much for your feedback, traveler s, we really appreciate it. As we can't have our eyes at every place at all times, it indeed happens that people disregard our guidelines. Nevertheless, when we encounter people who do so: we generally ask them to follow the rules. This goes especially for smoking (we do not allow things other... More

Nice and quiet hostel. Not Noisy at all and that's a good point ! NIce facilities. I did enjoyed my stay there. It's not the best place to meet new people because the hostel is small and there's a lot of long term people always together. I did had a nice stay. It's a 15-20 minutes walks to the city,... More

Hello Elisabeth and thank you for your comments! I suppose that the kind of guests you encounter here is merely based on chance and we cannot control the behaviour of other people. We are indeed a small hostel, but generally do try to keep the amount of long-term stays low. After all, we do advertise as a backpackers' hostel. We're... More
