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. The kitchen is under review and the sign actually reminds guests to clean up after themselves in consideration to other guests wishing to cook in a clean enviroment. 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

I really enjoyed my time there. It was always extremely clean and the location could not be any better. You can be in CBD in 10 minutes with a bus. The bus stop is just in front of the house. They don´t serve breakfast, but there is a very nice place just across the street. Coles, pharmacy, fruit market just... More

New Farm is a beautiful location with lots of nice cafés and close to Brisbane's city center. We got a very friendly welcome and an explanation of where to go and how. Our room was nice and cosy and had everything we wanted/needed.

Severe weather conditions on Friday, 1 May prevented us reaching Brisbane from the Sunshine Coast i.e. the Bruce Highway was closed. Remember, this was the storm that claimed five lives. We phoned late afternoon to say we were trying to get through but had to turn back, so we rang and cancelled. Despite the circumstances, we were charged $95 for... More

I ended up staying there for a lot longer than I planned and I guess that has to contribute to the fact that I enjoyed my time. Even though they have plenty of rooms, I didn´t hear any noise during my hundred night stay. Plenty of bathrooms and one of them even has a good hand shower. Owners were truly... More

near city, the bus stop just right in front of the house. clean and comfortable. my wife says it is a bit hot in summer because they have no aircon. there are supermarket and restaurants around the area so you dont have to worry about the food. the kitchen is also clean.
