The building was interesting looking and in a GREAT location. I stayed on level 4 and found it to be fairly quiet. There is a bar below the bar which THUMPING music though. Biggest complaint was all the rooms have this strange open air vent above the doors. Which means in the hallway you can hear people snoring, farting, or... More

Stayed at this hostel a few weeks back on my travels, and enjoyed every minute! I was with 3 friends so we got ourselfs a 4 share room which was very spacious and clean, and for the price we were more than happy. The hostel was all kept to a good clean standard and when we found out the age... More

I've read other people's reviews where they say it was terrible & disgusting ... but I don't agree. I guess everyone has different expectations but when I'm paying $50 a night I can overlook some negatives. Having said that ... I really didn't experience any negatives at all. Checkin was friendly & my room was ready when I arrived even... More

Friendly staff, great location being close to everything, room was very clean and bright. And I took part in some of the daily activities that they provide, which were really good fun and well organised.

I really regret staying here even though it was only for one night. I stayed in the single rooms, which are located on the incredibly sketchy and poorly lit roof. There is no rooftop terrace or patio. It is just a regular dirty roof with some random very small rooms located on part of it. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting.... More

We stayed at X-Base Brisbane Central for one night. It has a great location across from the train station, but it was dark, dirty, noisy, and a fire trap. It is in an old building that has not been updated, with three bathrooms per floor. It may be fun if you're under 20, but not so much if you actually... More

HI Tim A, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Were glad you found the location handy no other hostel in Brisbane can beat our location. The building is heritage listed and is going through refurbishments at the moment. Each floor has 5 bathrooms with some closed at the moment for re-modelling. Base Central... More

The location was excellent. Really close to (and I mean exactly in front of ) the main station where you can get the train for the airport (20 min by train). Close to the shops and other cool places (check the bar below the hostel!) I would not say that it was the best and the cleanest place I've ever... More
