Me and my partner stayed here for 2 weeks in a private room. The room itself was nice and big with shelves to put our stuff on rather than living out our suitcase which was nice. When we checked in we found a bee or wasp nest outside our window we told reception and were offered another room which we... More

Very low quality accomodation - room smelled bad, not enough bathrooms, kitchen with unfriendly signs and with no dishes. But ok, the ask for less than any other hostel in the area so it´s kind of fair. Location is good, you can walk to the city or they provide transport for free at certain times.

Looked up this place as soon as we got off the plane in Brisbane, it didn't look too bad so we gave it a shot. Believe it or not we were actually quite impressed; I mean, it's a backpackers what more do you expect? The dorms were average as were the bathroom units and toilets but when you're paying only...

I stayed in this hostel for 2 months while i was working in Brisbane. I had completely ran out of money and just picked the cheapest hostel i could find on really short notice. I've stayed in many hostels up and down Australia. But this one was absolutely perfect for me. Social/quiet areas. For if you're in the mood to... More

Very friendly staff, answer q's and good knowledge of the city. All staff were best I've seen. Cleaners working hard all the time, reception through to the guys on night manager shift and always happy. Backpackers is great too, easy to use mini bus, clean pool, excellent facilities. Worth staying at STS if travelling oz. A+ CT

It's a lovely hostel, great atmosphere, the staff does everything to make your stay more comfortable and pleasant. It's all decorated with fun art and tips by the walls. Everything is daily cleaned. And the kitchen and common area are very organized. Plus they have a transfer to the city every hour, so you don't have to bother with going... More

Stayed there 2 nights. The guys in the reception are quite nice and open minded. It's really quiet at night time and the rooms and facilities are ok. If I would stay in Brisbane again, I would go there. :-) Also close to lots of restaurants, bars and stuff ... --> West End is one of the best areas in... More

Having travelled extensively this has got to be the worst hostel we have stayed in. The staff are amazing and very accommodating (we had to change dates due to a 27 hour flight delay)! We booked a 4 bed dorm but ended up staying for 3 nights in 3 different rooms - 2 private, 1 4xbed dorm with a balcony... More

Were only here for two nights but would recommend it for those looking for somewhere reasonably priced to stay. The hostel looked like it could do with a revamp and the room was bit grubby but the overall atmosphere was good and for what we needed it for it suited. Staff were lovely though and very helpful plus they run... More

Somewhere to stay... If they don't have the cleanest rooms, they have the nicest staff members ! Whatever the time they are always available to help you ! Big cinema room, big kitchen, hips of space to chill out, swimming pool, laundry facilities... A little bite far away from the CBD but they have a free shuttle dropping of at... More
