This hostel is very good although you pay for it. All YHA hostels are clean and well run and this is no exception. The location is good and the staff very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is well equipped and clean. Recommend.

Stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 5 days which was clean and comfortable. A minor complaint was that my room backed onto the train lines which meant I was woken early some mornings. The rest of the hostel was also kept very clean. The kitchen was very big and well stocked though did still get very busy at peak... More

This has to be one of the best YHA's I have ever seen. From the fully equipped kitchen that contained every kitchen utensil ever imaginable to the rooftop pool and eating are down to all the toilets, showers and communal rooms. Very quiet also so if your looking for rest and relaxation in they city this has to be the... More

Right in the backpackers area, close to the transit station and the CBD, it's a great and quiet place to stay in Brisbane. The staff is what make the place worth staying in as they are friendly, funny and really helpful. Clean rooms (depending on the other roomies), great kitchen and common area, with heaps of activities every week for... More

Despite being named and priced as a hostel, the service offered could match budget hotels. Myself and a friend stayed in a room for two, which was utmost clean, fitted with a working (!) aircon and soundproof enough to provide for a peaceful sleep. The people at the desk were friendly and helpful as well. The hall was full of... More

The kitchen is clean and everything is provided. The rooftop terras is absolutely amazing, a million dollar view! The hostel is close... More

I stayed at the hostel for 2 nights in April 2014. I enjoyed my stay here. I stayed in a female only dorm which was relatively spacious and clean. The kitchen was large and well equipped. The only downside of the hostel, much like other YHA's I've stayed in previously, is that there was not much of a social atmosphere... More
