After the Leaflet said "24 hour reception and check in" we arrived at 6.30am to this hostel which we had pre-booked only to find the worst ever reception guy who was rude, completely unhelpful and had the worst attitude I have ever come across! when working with the general public I suggest you employ staff that have at least minimal people skills! We were told by this rude reception guy that we couldn't check in until 12pm and to go off and get breakfast and then maybe he would let us into the TV room! unfortunately as we are backpacking we have our own provisions for breakfast and decided not to go when he told us. He then unenthusiastically let us up to the TV room! this was an absolute tip! cockroaches all over the kitchen sides (and I mean loads!) Because of the reception guys attitude and the bugs we decided to stay somewhere else.... after informing the reception guy who's reply was "well apart from me forcing the money out of you there is nothing i can do!" how about a sorry or how can we keep your business? he threw the luggage key at us and we left. We then called BRISBANE BACKPACKERS RESORT who immediately came to pick us up, we had a fantastic stay at this hostel they have a pool, very friendly and helpful staff! we had a lucky escape from Tinbilly! DISGUSTING STAFF MEMBER AND HOSTEL! will tell everyone not to go here, EVER!
