Friendly hostel just outside the city. Good facilities, however air con should be optional throughout the day - hard to do make up whilst sweating in the room! Lots of great deals, different every night (+ happy hour!). Staff are helpful and chatty. The hostel itself is a nice little area with a pool and sun bathing area, also has... More

Fab hostel, stayed here for 3 nights in at beginning of Feb! Picked us up from the bus station no problem! Very helpful and lovely staff. Lovely room, got upgraded to a 6 bed & had it to ourselves which was a bonus! Only a 20 minute walk from the beautiful city with some local shops and bars nearby. All... More

I ended up finding this hostel by searching for cheap hostels. I was happy to find out the price was 22$ to stay for dorm, which trust me is VERY cheap for australia. I was then very happy to find out that not only was it cheap it has everything, I mean EVERYTHING. Friendly helpful staff, pool and hot tub,... More

If you want to stay in a dump, then this is the place to go. Expensive wifi, poorly maintained, no refunds and no receipts for payments. Dorms are allowed to become filthy and staff only care about having a good time with guests. When a guest is in danger they don't care.

I stayed here for 1,5 week. At first i wasn't that impressed by this hostel. The dorm was messy, laundry cleaning is very expensive, you have to pay a lot for the wifi and the connection isn't that good as well. You can only use it in the public areas downstairs. After a few days I met a few nice... More

Thank you for your feedback and taking the time to write us a review. We're glad to hear that you ended up having a good stay with us. In regards to the rooms, they are shared dorms, and often guests become very homely and use up a lot of space. We have a 24 hour reception and do encourage guests... More

We stayed over the weekend of Stereosonic festival. The staff are super friendly and helpful during our entire stay! They also offer a free shuttle bus that runs every hour to the city, although you have to find your own way back. Breakfast was cheap and simple (bacon, eggs, toast, etc.) Overall, we had a good stay and no issues!

Me and my girlfriend stayed in a double private room and overall our stay was pleasant. The room was spacious... It was a dorm room with three single bunk beds and a double but was only accessible by us. The room was clean and it had it's own bathroom. The room had aircon but it didn't work in our room....

Enjoyed the stay at Brisbane Backpackers. We were staying for the cricket and it was a manageable 20 min walk from the Gaba. Close to train station aswell which puts Gold Coast and Central City on your doorstep. Female staff were very friendly, big thanks to Kenzie for being the one who helped our group the most.
