Nice, mostly clean hostel, only 500 meters from the central station and in walking distance to the cbd. Coles is less than five minutes away. Nice service, the only thing that really annoyed me was their two hour lunch break, so I had to wait more than ninety minutes until I could check in after getting there at 2:30. The... More

Located close to Caxton street and a cute but expensive little mall, this hostel is the option for those who don't want to party but want to be close to the action. It's clean, it's well maintained, the rooms are always almost partially empty . . . . which can leave it a little dead during the week. Most of... More

The hostel was only a 10 minute walk from the greyhound station so was easy to get to to with directions on hostel website. Up a bit of a hill which is a bit tiring but it's in a nice quiet location close to the Coles supermarket and a short walk to everything central, Staff were friendly and helpful, good... More

Located about a 10 minute walk from the city centre, the location was perfect for us. The staff were really friendly and the hostel has a great atmosphere. the rooms were clean and had a tv and a fan, and the bathrooms were clean for the most part. Good cooking facilities. Would recommend

It is only a short walk in to the city centre, Coles supermarket is very close, Caxton Street (good for nice bars) is very close, as is the Suncorp Stadium. There is a nice social area/deck and the... More
