We were overall impressed with Bunk, good location for nightlife and modern, well-equipped and social hostel. However, beware of the 'Jungle' dorms, the 10 and 20 bed 'temporary' dorms used mainly for guests who are staying for 1 or 2 nights. These rooms are cramped, have no air con, and aren't much cheaper than the nicer 6 or 8 bed... More

1.On their website the hostel should make it more clearly that it is a party hostel and they would only shut down their music at 4 am in the morning. 2. Two windows were broken and only after 5 days of reminders someone came to repair them. 5 days of more noise and cold evenings!! 3. After I had told... More

Booked for 3 nights for the 20 bed mixed dorm and got upgraded for free for 8 bed mixed dorm ensuite. Free breakfast, a tons of info regarding what to see, you might be able to ask for special rate if you stay for a long time (a week or more). Definitely recommend it!

Came to brisbane for just one night. Although my confirmation email said they'd send a free shuttle from the airport between 8am-8pm, when I called they said that was a booking.com mistake. The front desk was closed when I arrived as it was when I checked out. Had to wait for someone each time. My bunk wasn't made so I... More

Hi Nina, thanks for taking the time to leave a review!! Apologies for the misunderstanding about the free shuttle bus. We run a free shuttle bus to and from the Brisbane Transit Centre on Roma St not the Brisbane Airport. My night staff are on shift alone and if there is a break taken or problem needing solving around the... More

I stayed here for 3 months in early July. It's nothing fancy, but still I think it's pretty good value overall. I was able to leave my bags in storage before checking in with an early international flight. It's located fairly close to the train station which runs from the airport as well. Breakfast consists of some cereal and coffee.... More

We stayed here for 1 night only but wish we could've stayed for longer. Brisbane itself can't really be described as much more than a typical city (very clean though!) but this hostel is lovely. We stayed in a 20 bed dorm which I was dreading but the room is actually very good and due to walls and screens is... More

Bunk is a party hostel with more stairs than atmosphere. Kitchen is quite good and bar is as to be expected. Located right by a busy roadway so sleep can be disrupted. The rooms are extremely hot and have that unmistakable hostel smell. But at least is had a bed.
