We booked as a group and we are very pleased with the hostel. The staff are really helpful and friendly. The location is good, near bus station, food shops, pharmasy, restaurants and other shops. A minus, ac will not be turned on when it's autumn and winter, so the air was very bad sometimes. Beyond that, we are very happy... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We are pleased to hear that you had a great stay. We try and do our bit for the environment here at Brisbane Backpackers and therefore do not have the air cons on during the winter months. We hope that you enjoy the rest of your travels :-)  More

The hostel is very clean and nice. Good atmosphere, and I meet a lot of cool people. Staff are really helpful and friendly. I had a good time without spending too much money. Good location walking distance to the city centre.

We stayed for a week in a six bedroom dorm. The rooms were clean, had a balcony and an ensuite bathroom. The staff is really friendly, the bar is brilliant and not at all expensive!

When arriving to Brisbane, our first mistake was that we followed directions for Brisbane City Backpackers – don’t get confused or misled! They are nearly 3km’s apart, so ensure you get Brisbane Backpackers on Vulture Street. We arrived and after checking in we had to move rooms right away as our dorm room was a complete mess – with one... More

Hi John, Thank you very much for taking the time to write us feedback. We are in talks of increasing the size of our kitchen, and yes of course meals times do get extremely busy in there and it is difficult for guests to all cook at the same time. We will certainly stock up on our utensils too! We... More
