This hostel is great if you're looking for bottom line accommodation. Air con doesn't work, rooms are cramped and crappy sheets. The manager of this hostel is 110% unprofessional (Chris) loves to throw peoples belongings out on the street. Your man found empty goon boxes in our 6 bed dorm when the 3 of us checked out. No proof these... More

Have been staying in hostels for quite a while all the way around Australia, but I must say Cloud 9 is one of the worst. The atmosphere and people that stay there are great, but the staff, especially the staff manager, are a whole different question. In two weeks said manager (or rather assistant manager) starts a fight with one... More

For a budget stay, it is a good place to choose. Don't expect a super well kept and homely atmosphere. Everything looks rather old and needs some new paint. Also, there is a weird system of different floors and no lift. There is, however, a balcony with a great view (like the other hostels on the street have) and a... More

I always try to stay positive but there is no pro about this hostel. The staff is extremely roud, talking to you as if you were stupid. The rooms are too small and bad maintained. The common areas too small and unconfortable. But the worst thing is the kitchen - you have to ask in reception for anything you need... More

Probably the worst hostel in Brisbane. Dirty and disgusting everywhere. There is mold i the rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. Bugs all over and worst of all the incompetent staff don't even care. They are rude and unkind! Do not go there!! No service at all!

Likes: hostel is less than 10mins walk to the bus terminal (greyhound/premier). Staff were ALL nice. (Shoutout to SAM the event organizer... He's awesome!) rooftop of the hostel is small but great! 10-15 minute walk to the city. Dislike: SMALL room. (8-bed all female) Not enough space for the backpacks/luggage. Can't barely walk because of all the stuff on the... More

I found the rooms squashed and the beds, although comfortable, extremely squeaky. The bathrooms are below standard with dirty shower curtains and soaking wet towels on the floor. They have notices everywhere about it being a licensed hostel and so no BYO, however I only saw the bar open once during my 3 night stay and then it was $15... More

The hostel itself is ok. Only problems are the kitchen is ridiculously small so you actually have to plan when you are going to eat to then get a spot there. No alcohol allowed. The showers are mouldy and no locking doors just curtains
