Great views of the city and close to transport to get into the city and Southbank. Bruno an exceptiionally cute dog also occassionally makes a visit. Would recommend to anyone looking for reasonable... More

Very clean and a very good wifi connection! Only stayed one night but would stay again. The location is a little out of town but not too far if you hire a bike. The kitchen was really big for cooking your own meals and everyone seemed to hang out together on the terrace.

Minto was our first hostel stop at the start of our travelling trip around australia. After talking to other people who we're staying there, the agreement was it's one of the best. I'd say we picked a good first start as it's quiet and fairly relaxing. You don't often see people around but when you do everyone's friendly. Upon arrival... More

This is the best hostel I have stayed in so far. The house is just beautiful, the beds are comfy, and sitting on the front patio in the evening with a drink chatting with the other guests is one of the highlights of the day. The hostel seems to attract guests of the considerate type, which is a very welcome... More

Absolutely loved this place...set in the lovey area of Highgate. The accommodation is an old colonial property....with all original features, which I loved. The room was great, very light and airy and quiet at night. Ideally situated for the Southbank area...roughly 10-15 min walk. Transport links are good, there's Southbank Station on Vulture St...10 min walk or the bus stop... More

Very clean spacious room. Makes you feel like you are in the country side in a cottage, very relaxed atmosphere and close proximity to public transport. I enjoyed myself and would recommend it for anyone when in Brisbane.

After going between different hostels of varying grades of cleanliness, what a pleasant and refreshing break to be here! My friend and I were so happy to have our own room after being in dorms for a number of weeks, and staying here is just like renting a lovely cottage or house. Very homely, it was so nice to relax...

Minto is situated close to public transport, ( bus outside the door) and train not far away. Self check in system is very appealing to me, i know which... More
