Clean, professional, modern and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, from the large, bright kitchen and dining area to the friendly staff and social events. I stayed here on two occasions, the first time I actually got upgraded to a private, two share room, which was great, and the second time I was in a 4 share dorm. Both... More

I stayed at the Brisbane YHA for much longer then I anticipated because it was such a great environment. From the cleanliness of every aspect of the place, to the warm friendly staff and the amazing people I met there, it is the only place I ever want to stay in Brisbane. There is the standard set-up of only being... More

I already knew that YHA Hostels are actually like Hotels, they are very clean etc., but the YHA in Brisbane was the best Hostel ever! They have a Pool on the rooftop! The common areas are very good, the rooms, 4bed / 2bed rooms are very big! You have your personal locker to keep your stuff safe! I totally recommand... More

This YHA is the biggest hostel I have ever stayed in. Like every YHA they have a free Wi-Fi hotspot in the lounge area. Location is not great but this is were all the backpacker places are. About 20 minute walk to city centre but close to train and bus station. Very clean hostel, only bad thing.. The hostel is... More

I stayed at Brisbane YHA twice last year- the rooms are nice and clean, yet affordable. The staff are super friendly and helpful which is greatly appreciated! This place has so many nice amenities for guests such as a complete kitchen, computers, an air conditioned movie room, a nice little cafe, and best of all, a sweet rooftop pool with... More

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and it felt like we were in a hotel not a hostel. We were really impressed with the reception and social areas which has an impressive view of Brisbane from the pool/eating area. It was very sociable, especially on a Friday evening on BBQ night, which was surprising considering we visited... More

This is a great, clean and comfortable hostel with all the facilities you'll need and a fantastic rooftop view! We stayed only for one night but I will choose to stay here again when I next visit Brisbane. Reception were helpful and we had a good night sleep in a six bed mixed dorm.

This is a very good hostel, most of the staff is very friendly and helpful, that's when you don't have to deal with the chatty ones who take forever to acknowledge you. Free wifi is only at reception. I booked a 4 share with ensuite, I don't mind paying the extra for the privacy but I must admit I was... More

Brisbane City YHA is a big hostel located about 600m from Roma Station. It certainly has a lot to offer, such as a rooftop swimming pool, very nice common areas (TV Lounge, Pool room etc.) and tries to raise conciousness for the environment - hence they offer plenty of recycling stations, even for clothes, batteries and so on, which is...

Usually hostels are somewhat a little rundown and grotty in some areas but not this one! It is definitely like a hotel which has also been said by other reviewers. Wicked common areas, the rooftop pool has incredible views of the city and there is even movie/pool rooms. It's a shame Brisbane as a city isn't a bit better which... More
