Aussie Way is good and peaceful place to stay. We only spent here one night but could have stayed longer! Our double room was nice and the bed was really comfortable. Place is clean and I really like the living room+kitchen area with tv, books etc. Location is bit far but still walking distance from centre. Wifi was free and... More

Hi Sarasus, Thank you for leaving a review! We're sorry that our staff-member did not respond to your greeting, this was most likely not intentional but rather a matter of simply not having heard. It's indeed possible that she was cleaning, as the tasks of our staff-members are not limited to reception-work. There are adequate signs in the office with... More

Stayed 2 weeks at Aussie way backpackers, nice hostel with clean rooms, but there was an annoying Irish couple who sat around outside all day everyday yelling, laughing and smoking cigarettes, would have been nicer without them there, but apart from them I would stay there again.

Hi Damien, thank you for your response. First to address your irritation with the Irish couple. In our hostel, we are unable to deny someone the right to stay here based on how they choose to spend their day. As such, the mood and energy of the hostel changes all year 'round, depending on our guests. But this would be... More

We stayed here for a week and had a great time at Aussie Way. We booked a double room, which was in the adjoining building and it was great. There were two more double rooms and a single, all sharing a lovely large bathroom and a small but well maintained kitchen. The main room was a lovely social space too.... More

Planning to stay at the hotel in this year end. Is the free wifi available? if so, is that free wifi accessible in all guest rooms? Many thanks.

Hello Vannarady, we have free wifi available. They do not extend to all dorm-rooms (although we really try), but there is an adequate signal in our entertainment rooms and the outside areas around the office. It ought to work in all of our private rooms too. We hope to see you later this year! More

We stayed as a couple in one of the double rooms. It was a reasonable price and the room was comfortable. We had a fridge, double bed & single bed (helpful for laying out clothes etc) and air con! The bed was very comfortable and the air con only added to that. The hostel is a little way from the... More

Thank you for your review, Alexjw1 and we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. I'm slightly puzzled though by the insinuation that Southbank is closer than the City Centre? King George square (the city hall) is less than 15 minutes away from here... Enjoy your further travels! More

This hostel is an old house on a steep hill. Reception was way in the back and difficult to find. The whole place was really dirty and needed a makeover. The showers had standing water and dead bugs in them. It didn't seem as if they cleaned very often. It was nice to have a TV in the room as... More

Hello Danko1313. I'm sorry that you seem to have had such a bad experience, but we dispute that cleanliness is a problem. A professional cleaner comes daily to clean the hostel and we go through an enormous amount of cleaning products. If you have a look at the other reviews, you will find that those back us up. As for... More

You would struggle to find a better place for the price in Brisbane. Don't let the pictures put you off, there's no building works anymore. Pros - less than 10 minute walk from Transit centre (where greyhound buses get in) - 5 minute walk to a massive Coles, lots of good restaurants and a cinema with $9 cinema tickets -Friendly,...

Thank you kindly for your review, Jennifer. Our works indeed finished quite a while ago and we now have a roof partially covering our outdoors-area. We're especially glad to hear that you enjoyed WIFI, as we went through a lot of trouble to ensure good and free coverage. We hope you enjoy your further travels! More

I first stayed in Aussie way as a backpacker in 2011. I went for 3 nights and ended up staying a month. It is in a great location and most of the rooms have only 4 beds in them so it feels quiet and safe. The hostel seems to attract friendly people, both long term backpackers and people visiting for...

I stayed at Aussie Way for 4 of nights in a double room with my husband. All in all, we enjoyed our stay there. The swimming pool is very nice, the outside area has a massive roof which doesn't look so good but I suppose it helps to have one for super sunny and/or rainy days. The hostel is divided... More
