This yha hostel is easy to get to from the transit centre where the bus station is. You have a 10 min walk with a bit of a hill at the end, good exercise! Its the last hostel in the row and I'm sure it'll be the best. You could grab a taxi if u needed it out the front or take the 470 bus across the road, next to the police station but its doesn't take you to the door, just 2 stops up.
The reception area is quite big with a drinks machine, ATM, travel brochures and travel desk and of course friendly, helpful staff. Drifters bar is here also which hosts a trivia quiz on a tuesday and free poker on a Wednesday with a happy hour and varied menu.
The first building has great showers upstairs where the 3 share dorms are and I think some private.The other building has the majority of the rooms spread over 4 floors. The rooms are clean, fresh crisp white bed linen and clean communal areas, all with air con. Each bed has a locker with a power point. Level 5 has a large tv room, computers, pool table, tv for playing the wii, drink and snack machine, pool and of course the kitchen. The kitchen is a good size and is normally quite busy after 6. During or after this time it can look a bit of a mess due to some people not cleaning up after themselves-!! Culprits can't be easily caught. Staff check it and cleaning co. come in around 10pm.
Hostel is in a great location, very close to suncorp stadium and coles supermarket, 10 min walk to south bank, passing the library with free wifi. The cheap cinema is near southbank on grey st, excellent value. The city centre is about 20 min walk about the same to the west end. You could also walk to the valley, I've often walked back from there, taking 40 mins ish. The riverside walks are lovely in the good weather as too going on the city cat and lone pine koala sanctuary.
Great hostel, it is on the big side but if you start talking to roomies or people in the kitchen, at poker or the free market walk on a saturday(thats where i did) etc you'll soon get to know people. Enjoy
