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...

The room was ok, it was a little small and could do with updating but the hostel was clean. It had a nice outdoor roof terrace. Free1/2 hour wifi. Only downside was the kitchen was way... More

This hostel has a laid back and friendly atmosphere. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the bathrooms were kept clean (I can't comment on the kitchen as I didn't use it). It also has a lovely terrace, with a fantastic view of the city, which is great for socialising with other guests in the hostel.

Me and my friend stayed here for two nights. We had booked a dorm room but got upgraded to a private, which was really nice. Our room smelled a bit damp, and was very cold because of the AC, otherwise it was clean and great to have a room for ourselves! It was a bunk bed and the bottom bed... More
