We stayed at the Palace in Brisbane for 3 nights, and overall, were not that impressed. Upon arrival we had to queue for 25 minutes while the recpetionists booked people in. Although the girl checking us was very friendly when we finally got served! They said tha a new booking system had just been installed. We found our way up... More

The location of Palace is excellent, being right in the city centre, its also fairly cheap. It is however quite dirty, noisy, I found a bedbug on my sheets on arrival, and the bathroom areas were fairly disgusting. reception tended to have queues too, perhaps they could do with a few more front desk staff. Having moved onto Palace after... More

Stayed in the palace for 1 week. it was horrible. the staff were totally unfriendly and very very unhelpful. They did not have have enough facilities for the amount of people staying there. The job club there was a total ripe off. The room next store to us had bed bugs and they cleaned the mattress right outside our door... More

Palace is the place to stay if you wanna be in a city central location and meet LOTS of new people. The majority of people that stay here are backpackers, so you pay for what you get really. The rooms aren't the best, but some are noticebly more homely than others, so ask reception if your worried about getting a... More

I stayed here and enjoyed it actually. The rate for a single room was really good, and the staff were funny as hell. Everyone kind of kept to themselves, and the place had a nice ambience. I'd recommend it, good rates, good staff, good experience.

This hostel is horrible. The staff are unfriendly and there were some very dodgy people that seemed to be staying there long term. I had to endure people having sex and taking drugs in my dorm all night and tried to compalin but couldn't find the security that's supposed to be on at night time. One of the other guys... More
