Hostel is in great location. My room, bathroom and kitchen wasn't very clean. I understand other guests make mess and that's not the fault of hostel but there is a balance to cleaning up mess and filth. You pay for what u get.

Stayed here for two nights on our arrival in Brisbane. Great location in the West End. Close to restaurants and bars and walking distance to Southbank. Great value for money. Good value breakfast. Beware Saturday night was a bit loud in the bar but expected in a backpackers!

Unfortunaetly we had a quite bad experience with this hostel. The room was ok, but stinky. Blankets were only linen-you needed to rent and pay the extra blankets which where dirty. The kitchen was disgusting. There were dirty knifes hanging on the wall and cutting boards were dirty from the night before. Wifi was available, but only in the dining... More

We are a group of 3 girls who are more than used to travelling and uncomfortable hostels, however we've never been anywhere so unfriendly and so unhelpful. The girls at the desk didn't know where anything was in Brisbane. She gave us wrong information about transport and the koala sanctuary, and our door keys didnt work...twice. Which all would have...

So firstly I booked a female only dorm and got put in a dorm with 2 guys! Which might not be a problem for some but if I order a female only it's for a reason! Then I had to pay an extortionate amount for wifi and was told it works all over the hostel IT DOESN'T! As soon as... More

We stayed for two nights at BBR and were glad we weren't staying any longer. The place is aimed at young partying backpackers who are looking for extremely basic accommodation, so unless you fit that category I'd give this place a miss. We had booked a private double room which was just a five bed dorm for the two of... More

This place is very quiet as backpackers go. The check in was easy and the private room was comfortable with a nice en suite shower room. It is a five minute walk to the trendy west end. Nice quiet bars and restaurants. The hostel seemed very strict about noise during the night. There is a bar inside too.

I just stayed for one night after I arrived in Australia. I checked in late at 1 am, which wasn't a problem at all. In the morning I went in the lobby to make some travel plans for the upcoming days. Thereby I was support by Katie, the landlady, who helped me researching and calling a lot of travel companies.... More

We stayed for 3 nights and although the rooms were ok, we had some poor customer service. There were 9 of us, and we had booked a 10 people dorm. When we got there, the only nice person of the staff we met told us that the 10 people dorm had no working a/c, so we could choose either that... More
