I stayed here for two days by myself and it was great. The hostel itself is quite big, the main floor has computers and a small chill area for wifi (which you have to pay for), the third floor has a big kitchen, outdoor terrace, big movie room and tables for drinking games and such and the fourth floor has...

For the price you pay the rooms are very basic and its very noisy in the corridor on a night hardly slept no soundproofing at all in the rooms, kitchen was pretty small only 2 stove tops. Had to pay for wifi and only worked on ground level and level 3, also had to pay a $10 deposit for plates... More

Don't use the cyber cafe here if you are planning to back up photos to Facebook, Google+ or similar. If you are using your own computer, you will find that the WiFi is too weak for it. If using their computers, the security is set too high to allow it - if you are lucky enough to get a machine... More

This hostel has a rooftop for hanging out or sunbathing, and on the level just below is the kitchen, a movie room playing 3 organised movies a day, a pool table, and a general lounge area where everyone gathers at night. It's quite easy to meet people here and its right across the street from a public bike rental stand... More

The staff were friendly and helpful and we were checked in quickly. The room was basic and rather small however it was satisfactory for the price. The issue we had with the room however is that it had windows which faced into the hall and the hall light was always on...Therefore when waking up in the night it was always... More

Chill backpackers is not perfect, but for a convenient city location it is awesome. It is right across from the Roma Street Railway station and a stones throw away from Suncorp Stadium, which in turn puts it in a great location for the nightlife, bars and pubs on Caxton Street. You can walk to the main part of Brisbane city... More

This hostel is perfect for a sightseeing trip to Brisbane. The inner city and all sights are in walking distance, the hostel is located in a safe area and super market is only across the street. Greyhound stop is also only five minutes walking. The rooms are very small but clean and airconditioned. The bathroom and kitchen was also clean... More

We booked this hostel because we were staying in Brisbane for a night (we were very thankful that it was only one!!). We turned up to be told we had been "upgraded" to a 3 person room. I can't imagine what the other rooms were like if this was considered an upgrade. The room was tiny (barely enough room for... More

I was looking forward to staying at Chill because it was recommended by my Lonely Planet guide and it looked pretty cool from outside. After a short stay there I habe no idea what that recommendation was all about. The rooms were OK, the staff were pleasant, the facilities were lacking, overall it was nice enough but it does not...
