My friend and I are travelling the east coast over the space of 2 months and are very used to hostels. This hostel has a nice rooftop area on the top floor with table tennis tables and benches which create a great social atmosphere. We really enjoyed this aspect of the hostel. However the treatment we got from the staff... More

The hostel was a good location and the staff were friendly and helpful. The facilities were good especially on the terrace and the views were good. Also cheap. However I have mixed feelings regarding whether I would stay here again. The rooms were small and the kitchen messy as well as the wifi being slow. I also felt I Couldn't... More

We stayed here for only one night as needed a hostel close to the bus station for our early bus so cannot comment on the social scene but the rooms and bathroom were clean and the staff were friendly. Would probably stay again.

Chill is a great Hostel. As soon as you walk through the door you are made to feel welcome. The staff are so friendly and helpful and always willing to go the extra mile to help you out! There is a very unique atmosphere there which is why I stayed so long (5 months!) The facilities are always clean. The... More

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
