Nice, chilled hostel. Rooms had air con which was a bonus, clean kitchen and movie room was good. Good location, near the city centre and transport was easy to get. Trevor (staff) and the rest of the staff were great throughout - will recommend

Got locked out one night from My room. Tried to call the night manager but no answer. Asked to get the money back the following day, but I didn't get them. Very small rooms, some kind of bugs in it aswell. Bad Job club. Only Jobs you get are Only for a few hrs.

I stayed here intermittently throughout my 2 year working holiday visa. Chill backpackers was our first stop in Australia and we made many friends during our 2 MONTH stay! It does exactly as it says on the tin-it's a hostel not a hotel. Rooms and facilities are basic but staff were always helpful and friendly. We found it a great... More

Average place. The outdoor terrace was really cool and it was nice that you could drink up there. Kitchen was clean. The room was the downside as it was tiny with barley any space to store a bag. Location was close to the bus station and only a 10-15 minute walk to the CBD or the southbank which I found... More

Firstly the staff were rude and unhelpful! Which in my opinion, staff are a very important quality of a hostel; poor staff usually means poor hostel. The rooms had NO fan or A/C, the toilets were a mixed communal block with only 3 showers and 3 toilets for the whole floor! (There is also a female only block) The kitchen... More

Booked for three nights but only stayed two. Staff were very unfriendly and seemed to have no idea what they were doing!! Checked in and were told we could pay a deposit for one key and then as we headed to our room one of the girls turned round and said its policy to all have a key, her attitude... More

I stayed at chill for just one night only because it was located close to Roma St. station and my friend and I needed to take the AirTrain to the airport at 4 AM. It was dirty, cramped with very small rooms with uncomfortable bunks. The staff was weirdly unorganized and it was for some reason a big issue that... More

Hi everybody, I have been in this hostel over 2 months enough time to see and enjoy the atmosphere. The hostel is clean on a daily base, however the room are a bit small. It is a real chill hostel with a lot of common areas such as the tv area, the play station area, the pool table area, and... More

Such a great hostel. One of the best ones I've stayed in. Very clean, most things like the kitchen and bathrooms get cleaned twice a day. Great views of the city from the social areas. I ended up living here for a few months so it's great if you're looking for long term accom - most 'livable' hostel in Brisbane... More

Very recommendable hostel, especially the 24/7 reception is absolutely friendly and helpful. No need for a travel agent, the reception gives you the best tips what to do in and around Brisbane. Any problems? Ask at the reception, the guys will help you! ;)
