I have stayed in many hostels in Australia but this has always been the best place! not too mention the staff, and the managers ! friendly and always helping you. If you ever stayed in any other hostel you would know what i am talking about. Never rude or anything ! Always clean, and i know if i have a... 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 staff here was really friendly, we were suppose to stay in a 4 bed dorm but got upgraded to a private on arrival. 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

When I arrived at this hostel I asked if I can first have a look around, because I heared good and bad things from other persons who stayed there before. My first impression was pretty good - so I checked in! Unfortunately I didnt had a look into the rooms itself... They are very small and stuffy ( you cant... More

Chill is a compact hostel compared to what is on offer around Brisbane, but it's location is very convienient, being less than five minutes walk away from Roma Street Station. The share facilities are male + female, share kitchen, and great rooftop relaxation. My only gripes is there doesn't seem to be an option for secure online booking, and reception... More

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
