Got there with my friend after we looked at the website all looked good. But when we got to our 8 bed dorm i wouldn't have put more than 6 beds in there MAX! The floor was covered with clothes and rubbish this was at noon, we didn't have any pillows on our beds but thought nothing of it so... More

Loved this place! spent 2 and a half months here and loved every minute of it. I have stayed in hostels for 11 months and this is definately one of the cleanest and friendliest. Well equipped kitchen, friendly and helpful staff, always a good atmosphere. Great location, very close to the train station, south bank and the city centre. Would... More

Good thing: location, right next to brisbane bus and train station, and close to brisbane downtown. Nice terrace at the top. Bad things: noisy, dirty. They have the most expensive internet fare I've seen in Australia so far. You have to pay a deposit for everything, even for things in the kitchen like cutlery or plates. You have to bring... More

This has been my favourite hostel so far. The hostel is clean, bathrooms are always immaculate and you have to pay for cutlery, therefore people clean up after themselves. Good atmosphere and lots of friendly people. The hostel is quiet for people that don't want to party, but the roof top area alway had goon flowing for those who do.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in a female 5-share dorm and really enjoyed the stay. The bed was ok, it was clean and had a lot of restrooms and showers that were clean (and seen to be cleaned daily). The bathroom was one share and one female only, no guys only which seemed a bit wierd though. The location is... More

I tried to book this hostel via email... They wrote back requesting more info than I was comfortable giving over email but said they had a room available (I specified that I was looking to stay for only one night) so I got on the train from the airport and headed over. Turns out they did have a room but... More

This is the best hostel we have stayed in so far in Australia! Clean, great kitchen and great views of the city on the terrace! It is one of the few hostels you can actually bring your own drink into! Only negative was some of the staff were a bit rude and the air con was too cold (for once!)... More

Nothing too special. Its clean and decent with internet lounge and terrace. Perfect location between the Barracks, city center, museum and the bus station (great for greyhound travelers carrying heavy backpacks!)

On approach, Chill Backpackers looks like a cool, laid-back and trendy hostel. For the price one pays, one would expect it too. Though it's definitely fairly priced for Brisbane, it doesn't deliver the quality one might expect from a city backpackers. The door staff are friendly enough, but once in the slow elevator (which is really the only option as... More

Booked to stay here, stayed one night that was enough. Cancelled my future says which was 4 days later. Okay location is really good for the centre of Brisbane. However rooms, just a bed and that's a private room! Can't access the kitchen after a certain time so if u want a hot drink forget it, kitchen is shared so... More
