The location is great! It's close to cafés and restaurants in a beautiful part of Brisbane! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The building has a lot of character being a beautiful old Queenslander. The Storey Bridge is just nearby and looks spectacular at night. This is a good value for money alternative to a regular hotel or motel.

Thankyou for taking the time to review us, we are glad you loved our Queenslander and enjoyed the cafes so close to us, we are definitely a nice alternative to a motel or hotel with that bit of extra character. More

This is a good budget priced option for those looking for a safe and central location close to Brisbane CBD but with the quiteness of the suburbs and a lovely old character house with a swimming pool. The Wi-Fi could be better but it is free so I wasn't very bothered. There seems to be plenty of free parking close... More

Stayed in a single room which was excellent for the price. WIFI is included which is actually pretty quick + Tea, Coffee. As a direct comparison I stayed at the Base hostel in town 2 weeks ago in a 4 bed dorm. If you add up the cost of that plus a days WIFI the difference is barely anything and... More

Had a nice time at Bowen, met some great people and had a good laugh. The hostel is pretty quiet and is in a nice quiet location. Could do with a slight modern touch but for value of money was pretty good. Free wifi in any location of the hostel is a bonus on my books. Would recommend this to... More

Thankyou for your lovely review, its interesting you found some great people here to share your stay, we do seem to attract nice people.

We have stayed for one night only and was not a good night, the room was not so clean, it was very hot and we couldn´t open the window because it was between the room and the common area. I had some alergic problems.

Hi Guys I wonder if you would be good enough to contact me direct to your problem with the window adjoining the common area, we don't actually have any rooms like this, all rooms have windows but they all open to the outside and none are near the communal areas. Maria ( owner ) More
