There was cleaners every morning and the place was tidy! There was no bed bugs and the people was lovely! The... More

The staff seemed surprised when we arrived although we had booked, once checked in we were sent to a 10 bed dorm although we had paid for a 7 bed dorm. I went back to reception and after discussing it with the manager he kindly put us in a private room for 2 nights, and then a dorm for the... More

In a few words: Bedbugs, dirty common areas, insecure hostel, rude staff, only long-termers that think they own the place, way too far from the city. When we arrived in brisbane and called the hostel we were told that there was no pick up from the city, although advertised online, so had to take the train and find the place... More

Bit of a half-way house with a few cretins there just hanging around. My mates got destroyed with bedbugs and they don't offer any refunds so you're faced with the prospect of cutting your losses and going elsewhere or to grin and bear it. Luckily I wasn't bitten myself though, and from what I can see, the wooden bunk beds... More

Dirty rooms with serious and on-going bedbug problems. I complained to management and they sprayed pesticide in my room and on my clothes left on the bed without notifying me. Between the bed and my clothes and not being aware that they had used chemicals in my room, I got a major exposure and my skin broke out in terrible... More

Booked and paid to stay in the Pop Room for 8 nights, lasted for 6 (no refunds). The room was clean and spacious but with no air conditioner we had to leave the windows open at night to get some breeze. Unfortunately this breeze also contained noise and cigarette smoke from people drinking, smoking and swearing loudly on the fire... More

This has to be bar none, the best hostel I have stayed in yet. It is so open and airy, and the staff are incredible. You can see the ocean from most of the rooms. There were alot of people that had been there for months and were not planning on going anywhere. It is really like a little community... More

So I just wrote an awesome review, but lost it...anyways noticed some cool things on my second time round, new common rm/kitchen and tidied rooms, maybe painted, not entirely sure, but looked good anyways..It's NOT the most modern thing going, some parts bit old, but cool character. Can't remember if we did last time, but this time, we went sailing... More
