Pay crazy prices for wifi access, really rude staff, terribly unhelpful and unwelcoming! Tiny tiny rooms! Never stay here it is absolutely awful. Basically trying to rob money off backpackers rather than be helpful and a good host! Worst hostel possible. Chill" it should be called hell". And everyone in the hostel is miserable and complaining about the lack of... More

Chose Chill because it was rated pretty high by Lonely Planet. It is in a great location, very close to Roma Station. We came in late, so the 24 hour reception was appreciated. We also took advantage of the free, long-term luggage storage (left bags for 2 weeks), and no problems there. BUT it does not look 'new' as described... More

Ideally located in heart of city, walking distance to city attractions, Dave has been very helpful suggested city n ferry tours and nearby amenities.Does get noisy after 12 pm in the corridors - friendly n smiling staff. Kitchen and lounge area is busy and bustling more than city.

Hostel is in a fairly good location and has a nice rooftop terrace, was really let down by the quality of the accommodation. The beds aren't very comfortable and the room was dark and smelly, due to only one small window that wouldn't open. There was also doors missing from bathroom cubicles and I had 2/3 cold showers due to... More

DO NOT STAY HERE WITHOUT CHECKING OUT ALLOCATED ROOMS!! This hostel will not do refunds under any circumstances. We checked in, our key cards didn't work continuously. 1st room smelt like old food, and second room had cockroach crawling on bed frame. Explained to staff on front desk who looked at us like we we're being unreasonable about not wanting... More

Stayed in a 10 bed dorm and was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were OK nothing too fancy but nothing shabby, they just did the job. The facilities, staff and location are what cement this as a must stay backpacking hostel. Within an extremely close proximity to Roma St and the CBD everything you need is a short walk away, across the... More

I stayed here in April for about 3 days but because I've met so many great people here I extended it by a week. I then did Frasers and now I'm heading back to Brisbane to work to save up for Whitsundays. Guess where I will be checking in again. Very good hostel and always being clean in a god... More
