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. As for the... More

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

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

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
