Staff were so helpful and really went the extra mile for us. Particularly Hannah, who was so helpful when we had some problems, so thanks Hannah! Great customer service! Showers were great, breakfast was really nice and it's in a perfect location right in the centre of the city.

I stayed here for 4 nights in a double ensuite room. The room I got had a double bed and 2 extra single beds and a small kitchen so very good value for money. The room was very clean and well presented. The bathroom is very old but was clean. The lift can only be accessed if you ask the... More

I stayed here for two nights in a single private room in August 2016. The reception, travel desk and housekeeping staff were all lovely and it was soooo nice to hear two Scottish accents among all the Aussies! It was no problem at all to sort out my booking (I'd messed up and booked the wrong night), my room was... More

Still my favourite place to stay in Brisbane city. The place has a vibe and feel you want find anywhere else. It is what you make it, the staff from reception to housekeeping are all help full and friendly. It is truly a party hostel with Down Under down the stairs but you can always get sleep when needed.

Stayed here in a single room for 4 nights. Firstly, after checking in (by the receptionist who was more interested about talking to his mate about how hard he'd partied the night before) I discovered that the lift was out of service and that I had to carry my 24kg bag up 4 flights of stairs, okay, can't be helped...

We spent a rowdy night at Base Backpackers a few weeks back, you really have to know what you are getting into when you book places like these. About 11 years ago on our first trip around Australia, we spent 4 nights here and were here to party and be obnoxious, it was Palace at that time now Base. This... More

I've used this hostel as my base to come back to a few times, kitchen is equipped and never too mucky .. Always someone in there keeping it clean, showers are decent and beds are comfortable. It's an old building so of course it's not in the best condition and means the place is dusty and by no means pristine... More

Checked into here as part of a working starter package and I walked out within an hour. I paid 60 dollars to 'upgrade' to a single room and it was disgusting. Stains all over the bedsheets and even a nice what looked like vomit crust embedded into the sheet. In addition the bathrooms and showers were fairly unclean although not... More

Travelled a lot of places and stayed in many hostels and this ranks as one of the worst. Rooms are small and damp smelling, the few bathrooms are usually busy and are poorly maintained. The travel desk downstairs was also of little help if you didn't want to do the few things they seemed to know about (in essence if... More
