We shared a twin room, sure it was smallish, however the beds were comfy, the bathroom was great and everything else was fantastic. Great location right in the CBD walking distance to everything. Would certainly stay here again when in Brisbane.

Hi Mollymoo_10, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers. What great feedback, the only thing we could suggest is that if you found the twin room a little on the smaller side we have other room styles available that are larger. Next time you find yourself in the river city try the Queen sofa or double single room types. Warmest Regards, Management

Rooms are very clean, cozy and comfortable. Price is amazing. In the heart of Brisbane CBD. Close to the mall, casino, river and public transportation. The staff are helpful and courteous. The room i stayed in had a great view of George Street.

Up goes the grade & up goes the price. Picked a bad weekend, apparently two so called civilised men were about to knock the S#@*t out of each other, so, they upped the pricing, $285 for 2 nights. And, to add insult to injury their billboard outside said "Vacancies". Price

Hi raffles123, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of the hotel with other travellers. We welcome you honest feedback about your most recent stay at the hotel, we would like you to know that the increase in price for the evenings in questions was a simple matter of keeping in line with market value. We have not increased our rates as a result of the hotels recent renovations. We can confirm that our system does show your previous 21 stays at the hotel and we would like to once again thank you for your loyalty. It would be a shame if you moved away from the hotel, if we are lucky enough to have you stay with the hotel again please request to have a room on the first or second floors. Looking at your previous stays I think that you are used to being in the rooms on the first two floors of the hotel, these are the rooms that are currently fitted out with the pod machines. Warmest Regards, Management

I didn't notice when booking this hotel that it was owned/operated by the YMCA. The rooms are small, amenities and furniture reminded me of a student dorm-room, and the bathroom is so small you can't sit on the toilet straight because your legs jam into the sink. But maybe

Hi 20-20_Travels, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with other travellers. The hotel is owned and operated by the YMCA but all that this means is that all of the profits from our hotel go back into the community to assist vulnerable Queenslanders. Whilst we understand that a few of our rooms are small, with our new 55inch flat screen smart TV's I think that the amenities far surpass anything I had in college. Next time you find yourself in our beautiful river city I would suggest you try one of our terrace or sofa rooms, whilst a little more expensive if you want some extra space they are a great choice. Warmest Regards, Management

Central city location. Best feature is the diner next door! (51st Avenue) Pros:- security swipe card required to go up to room floors and then another swipe through the next security door to get to your room..... so, good security! Clean and comfortable bed. Quiet (I heard no

Don't know what size bedroom you have at home. We stayed in 308 and yes it's a bedroom. you can sit on a desk but it's not convenient to chill. Next time i would prefer a room at a higher floor wrt the street noice. I'm 1.87m and for me the bed was oké.

What is breakfast? Is it a buffet?
No, far from it. You are given a voucher for $ 12.00 to spend at the cafe. This gives you the basic bacon & eggs only. Not what we expected !!
