I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in April. It was okay but I DEFINITELY wouldn't stay any longer. Location is okay .. about 15 min walk to the city .. they do a shuttle bus every hour but not in evenings or on bank holidays. My room definitely needed redecorating ... Paint was peeling off the walls, window... More

Kitchen was just so small with not many utensils- think you have to hire them from reception or something but no one told us. People had to prepare their food outside then take... More

Also the TV room was a good place to chill & there was a football table & small pool to keep you're self amused. The people who stayed there was also friendly as laid back when I... More

I have to say, this is one of the best backpacker I have ever being to in Brisbane - Gold Coast. Really good price for a 3 people room, The location is really convenient as well, really close to restaurants and supermarkets. The people there are quite noisy however, can hear couples making love next room during the mid night.... More

If you are not looking for a palace, then this place is fine. Excellent, and very friendly service, and a fifteen minute walk to Southbank. A giant old Queenslander with loads of character. Rooms were not exactly spotless, but there is a big kitchen, pool. TV room and a shuttle bus to/from the hotel. A bit of maintenance and a... More

The hostel isn't that close to the center but they have shuttles. Kitchen is kinda big, lots of dining tables. Very good tv room with lots of movies, football table, pool.. Good atmosphere, very nice staff, a lot of activties. Only thing is people tend to stuck there so the rooms may be very messy.

The hostel is average in terms of rooms/cleanliness etc. But good enough for a hostel. The staff are very friendly and will help you out with anything you need. The hostel has a swimming pool but it looked really dirty. You would be better to go to the lagoon on Southbank where you can swim for free. You can walk... More

A good place to base yourself for Brisbane. There is nothing posh about it but has everything you need. Slightly out of town location made easy by regular shuttle bus. Staff friendly and helpful. Kitchen clean and well equipped, plenty of space for lounging/ chatting/ hanging out. Pool and garden area currently being re-done. I was staying in winter and... More
