I've stayed in hostels for the same price and not come across anywhere so shocking. They shouldn't be open.. end of really. We were in a 8 bed dorm first. The place stinks. There was mould. Sheets are stinking. Because it smells so bad they keep the doors open but people/anyone!!! can come in and out of the rooms all... More

I've never written a review for anywhere before but this hostel has shocked me. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm for $24. Looked my room up online afterwards and turns out they've charged be $5 more. Just to clarify, I wasn't expecting the Hilton when I arrived. I know in hostels you expect noise but here it was ridiculous.... More

Cheap hostel but for good reason. Mould/damp on ceiling above bed, corridor smells, no blanket offered so cold at night, girls showers only have curtain with no door so paranoid someone was going to walk in by accident and generally just run down and falling apart. Staff were very friendly but that was the only good point. Definitely worth paying... More

Worst hostel where I have ever been to. The building looks like it is collapsing and it smells very bad. The kitchen and men bathroom are so dirty that you don't want to go there. Spend couple of dollars more and pick any of the other hostels on the same street.

The kitchen is the smallest kitchen ever, and its so hot in there! If you pay extra for an air conditioned room, beware that the air conditioning hardly works. The neighbouring hostels are much much nicer, but Cloud 9 is by far the cheapest. Besides these things the hostel is at least kept fairly tidy and it is in a... More

Horrible hostel. We paid to a girl in the reception and asked for a receipt but she told me that I had to wait, got it 20 minutes later. After 2 hours in the room a rude guy knocks on our door and asks us if we're drinking. We say no and let's him smell my drink. After this he... More

If you've ever seen a crack house and wondered what it's like to live in one, Cloud9 is worth checking out. When you enter the building a voice in your head will tell you to leave immediately. Ignore this. I noticed the smell of urine on the way up the stairs. I later learned in this subculture, the management will... More

The hostel is pretty run down. Whilst it is very cheap and very close to the bus terminal it is in pretty shabby condition. The cloud 9 sign is broken, the kitchen is poky and not very clean, the rooms are a good size but pretty filthy and the bathroom was in hideous condition. The vibe is also not very... More

The worst of 6 hostels I've stayed at in Brisbane. Tiny rooms, the advertised air con doesn't actuallying have any coolant and so run down this place should get investigated by health and safety authorities. When it rains there are so many leaks through smashed windows, broken doors and holes in the roof. The showers are mouldy and the urinals... More

Overall, that's one of the good hostel I've been to.. Close to everything, good facilities, every night they offer something to do. They have a bar next door but gotta say it wasn't open when I was there. Had a lot of fun with the staff, always trying to help out. Prices are cheap, I was staying in a 16... More
