Nice modern building and facilities, not far from the main train/bus station bit of a walk from the city centre. Large kitchen and plenty of places to eat including the large terrace with great views of Brisbane. Close to a Coles and other bars and restaurants. Double room was spacious and clean but being on the ground floor meant being...

My experience was terrific from the start. The checkin person upgraded my room and gave me an internet voucher. The room was clean and had my own personal shower/bathroom. The amenities were great with tv room, lounge, movie room, game room, outdoor deck, swimming pool, onsite café, ping pong table, big kitchen and the list goes on. The place was...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Brisbane YHA. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm room which was cosy but had great huge lockers to put your backpack in (bring your own lock) as well as excellent air conditioning! Kitchen was great and well equipped, absolutely loves the rooftop dining/ pool area. There was also a good TV room to...

My friend and I are staying here for a couple of months and we both agree that out of all the hostels we've stayed in so far during our travels around Australia this one is the best. A few of the reasons for this: The location is good, about a 10 minute walk from the centre and there's a supermarket...

We stayed here for one night before flying home, of all the yha hostels we have stayed in this was the best one, we booked a double room and got one with an ensuite, it was clean and had everything we needed. The only downside was the aircon is set at 24 degrees and it's the middle of summer so...

I browse for a hostel and found YHA with best recommendation. Located 10 mins walking from Brisbane Train Center, near Suncorp Stadium and Coles supermarket. I love the hostel for its clean and quiet place. They have rooftop with pool and dining area. The low part of this hostel was the wifi connection only available on reception area, and kitchen...

We are a family of 4 with 2 children; we have stayed in many YHAs in the eastern part of Australia in these few years. We found our Brisbane YHA experience a good one. The check-in was very efficient. The car park was a little small so my car being a full sized family saloon had a little difficulty. The...

Having had an excellent stay here six years ago, this was our first choice hostel when we were due to visit Brisbane again. This choice seemed justified when we arrived at 8am, as the very friendly reception staff upgraded us from a private double to a private ensuite so that we could get in a room early, of which we...

Stayed a night there so wasn't able to explore much of the facilities but the cafeteria area was cool that has a door that leads out to the deck where people can eat and hangout, especially on a nice day or cool night. The pool area was by the deck too. The bathrooms and rooms were clean and the people...

I stayed in this hostel upon my arrival in Australia before my birding trip began so that I could recuperate from travel. I've stayed here before and loved the location and the rooftop pool and sitting area. Amazing view of the city from there. It's convenient to walk downtown or across the river, has a nice coffee shop and very...
