Myself and a girlfriend stayed at Minto recently when we were travelling up the coast of Queensland - we chose Minto because it was a little different fro the other offerings in Brisbane and gave us a chance to be more in touch with real Australia, it was still close enough to everything that we needed, when we needed it but gave us the opportunity to have some more chilled out time, rather than being stuck in a big noisy hostel full of drunken idiots. The staff were really nice and gave us some great tips about the local area and fun things to do while we were there - they even gave us some good restaurant recommendations and cool places to go for a great night out - not just an expensive/ touristy night out! This makes all the difference I think when you come to a city like Brisbane... I think that as a traveller you can never really make the most of your trip unless someone points you in the right direction to where the real fun and beauty is at, otherwise you end up just doing the same old boring stuff that every other tourist out there is doing! We saw some great live music in the local area, ventured into town and across to the more touristy but very lovely Southbank which is also very close. The rooms at Minto were simple but lovely, the house that they are in is absolutely stunning - an old style house which has been done up beautifully and looks very historical and fits in really nicely with the area that it's in - we were very happy there for four nights and would have loved to have stayed longer as it definitely feels like a home away from home but we were only on a short trip!! Thank you Minto for helping us make the most of Brisbane!!
