I've been twice in this place. The first time it was quite ok and I returned there because I liked the location in West End next to Southbanks, what was defenetly a mistake. I stayed in the same room as the first time and I'm absolutly shure, that they never cleaned the bathroom during the two weeks when I wasn't... More

If I could describe this hostel with one word, it would be AWFUL and I could honestly say it was the worst hostel I stayed in whilst I was in Oz! The general atmosphere is very groupie and if you're traveling by yourself then avoid this place like the plague as know body gives you the time of the day... More

Fairly average hostel but could be awesome. There is a pool, tennis courts and basketball courts but the hostel is generally fairly smelly and little dirty. there are alot of long term hostelers which creates an odd atsmophere. However the reception staff were very very helpful, quick to give advice etc. Worth and visit but other hostels may be better... More

Accommodation was average. Was annoying that you had to give in your key to get kitchen equipment. Only stayed one night so maybe we were unlucky with our stay but it is a trek to the city centre and all the other backpacker hostels so perhaps less social although the west end area is nice. The major problem were the... More

Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. Without going into too much detail, we were saddened to learn that one of our guests attempted to end her life by taking an overdose of prescription medication prescribed by her doctor. We do apologise that our staff were more concerned with saving a life than getting you to... More

Extra clean place, with a super fun bar that gets everone involved. Especially good if yoiu are travelling by yourself like I was. Only a short walk to the city so no big deal. Staff were really good too.

The room was cleaned regularly and had a good nights sleep with the air con and comfy bed, but there was only 2 power outlets between 8 of us and there was no lockers to put all your stuff in. Only ones downstairs which you had to pay $3 a day for. Also the key cards are a real pain!... More

I have travelled a lot and stayed at many backpackers and this place has a great vibe! Felt safe being there as I was travelling alone. They also just got a large screen tv for play station which is pretty cool. Staff are so energetic and helpful. Awesome location for south bank and only a 20min walk into the city.... More

Visited Brisbane for the Test Match (sadly). Booked BBR, location is good for cricket, not so good for central Brisbane, being a bus ride away. There is a courtesy bus from the hostel that runs hourly. When I first arrived, I was told that i would have to change rooms half way through my stay, which was rather inconvenient, since... More
