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

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

Hello AnnaTK88. Thank you for leaving a review; we're glad that you enjoyed your stay. As for the stove: it was new and we were completely unaware that it wasn’t working until a guest informed us at the desk and we immediately replaced it with another one from our store room. People are happily boiling eggs now. It would’ve been... More

Me and partner have recently stayed at Aussie way and enjoyed every minute of our time there. When we arrived, we were greeted by a very friendly welcoming member of staff who checked us in and showed us to our lovely room. The room we stayed in was very clean, the bed was so comfortable and we also had our... More

This hostel was a very quiet and welcoming one. Staff are super friendly, and as I stayed here for more than a month, I became good friends with them. The owner was helpful and friendly, we often saw her. It has a nice homely atmosphere, and long stayers are welcoming to new guests. Everyone is just so super friendly, it's... More

I stayed at Aussie Way for a week and I really enjoyed my time there. Apparently the outside area has been renovated recently and it looks very nice and tidy, there's a BBQ and a pool (small but clean). Staff was very friendly and when i had problems connecting to the wifi they helped me and fixed it, which I... More

Hello Dinabird00, thank you very much for your review.

As hostels go, this is average. Basic bunk beds, kitchen, living area, info on walls. But there are quite a few long term stayers which makes the atmosphere a bit crap as they weren't welcoming to new guests. Location OK. Owner is nice. Didn't go in pool.

Hello Charlotteahoward, Thank you for leaving a review. We're sorry to hear that our long-term guests weren't very welcoming, but there is not much that we as a hostel can do about that. The only thing we can do is keep the amount of long-stayers low, which is already our policy. I see that you came here in November, so... More

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

Thank you for leaving a review, Neminskii,- you bring up some valid points. The renovations are about done at this point, so now we have a nice undercover area and a new entertainment room -- no more mess! We apologize that this was underway whilst you were staying here. We also apologize for the state of the pool. This was... More
