We got a different room, less crowded and didn't have to pay extra at all! Free breakfast (Really cool if you have a hangover) + the neighborhood/environment is nice! Would recommend :) If water is your element, you are at the right place! (Nearby the harbor)

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
