YHA Brisbane was a pleasant temporary home on my trip in Australia. The statt is very friendly, the rooms and facilities well-maintaned and clean, the rooftop terrace is breathtaking and most important of all the people are outgoing and happy to share their stories. If your are looking for the backpacker spirit- you won't be disappointed.

Hostel is just a 10 min walk from Roma St transport hub. Friendly and helpful reception staff (can aid booking trips). Activities each day (thanks to Sydney !) such as bowling night, BBQ night (Go for the amazing Kangaroo steaks !), Saturday market walk. Rooftop area providing great view across the city and south bank area, includes pool and plentiful... More

We stayed here over the New Year period, and the rooftop provided an excellent view of the fireworks. The staff were really helpful on arrival and throughout the stay. The room was clean, comfortable and well-appointed in comparison to many other hostels. The kitchen was very large, but needed to be given the number of people staying there. Others have... More

Staff on reception were friendly and helpful on arrival. The hostel complex is huge and has plenty of communal areas, a huge kitchen which almost never feels too busy and the rooftop pool which is ridiculously relaxing. Rooms were also good with comfortable beds, power sockets inside lockers, air conditioning and lots of space. The negatives were the train track... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the YHA but you definitely cannot afford it on a backpacker budget. I paid twice as much a night at the YHA for what I was paying at another nearby hostel, but the facilities are really good there. The roof terrace has a great view of the city, a nice pool and the dorm... More

The freakingly loud commuter trains run right outside the hostel's bedroom windows. Upper Roma is a short walk from the Brisbane Transit Centre and lined with half a dozen other hostels. YHA charges for wifi but one can just walk 15 minutes to the State Library to get onto the internet for free there. The backpackers are still cooking late... More

We stayed in November 2014 in a double en-suite room for 3 nights. Facilities were clean, modern and well presented. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hostel is an easy walk from the train station and the city, took us no more than about 15 or 20 minutes. The top floor outside deck area has good views across the... More

This is an awesome hostel! We stayed here for 5 nights in a private room and felt like we were staying in a hotel. Our room was spacious, very clean and had air con which was well needed. It's a large hostel but there are so many communal areas throughout the place. The roof top pool area is lovely and... More

I was supposed to stay here for 2 nights and ended up extending my stay to 4. I found the staff friendly and the rooms clean. The kitchen was spacious and very clean. It's also nice to have a dining area outside and the pool is an added bonus. Would definitely stay here again.
