Nice staff, clean, historic house, convenient bus access. I got a lot of great tips about what to do and see, which really helped me figure out what to do that day. I had a two person dorm room, and it was pretty well-equipped with a fridge and toaster.

After driving over 600km to get to Brisbane and having our first choice of accommodation fall through we booked last minute a room. Upon arrival at 6pm the reception was locked up as apparently they have no staff working on Saturday and Sunday past midday. We then called the number on the door listed in case of any issues only...

The room was clean,bright and cozy…close to a supermarket,beautiful walking ways by the river and you can catch a free ferry to the city from there.Jacque and Nala were very kind and helpful.I think this guesthouse is much better than staying at an hostel in the city.

I had only booked for one night but after my first few minutes talking to the girls I immediately signed up for an extra night there. Jacque and Nala were both very helpful and helped me find the easiest ways to travel to all my meetings - the bus service just outside is good and buses pass by every 10... More

Although nicely located this is basically a backpackers with a very basic kitchen and no other common room or tv room. The kitchen/dining room consists of a table with picnic-table style seating, a portable cooktop with two hotplates, a small microwave, a small sink, very few utensils or cutlery, and a warning sign telling guests not to steal their miserable...

We appreciate your feedback and thank you. We don't advertise televisions within the property.

Sorry you didn't have a good experience with the free WIFI as most guest comment how good it... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Ellie's for one night as we were in town for a party. The booking process was simple and the staff extremely courteous and professional. When we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised by the facilities and the location. The room was perfect for our needs and had everything you'd require for a short stay.... More
