This place is great. I've stayed in over 100 hostels and this one is certainly in the top 5 for sure. It's brand new, so has everything that all us backpackers have been moaning about (lockers, individual lamps, convenient bathroom facilities, individual plug sockets,mirrors, blabla) Also the whole kitchen area is huge, plenty of everything to go round!!
Only issue was, we'd booked for two nights, and for whatever reason they'd managed to double book our room. Then, I don't really understand why- the guests who were arriving the next morning's booking was clearly more important than ours, so even though we were there first, they said we had to only stay one night and try our luck at one of the dingy hostels next door so the other people's booking could be honoured..
I was so furious, I don't get why we had to find alternatives, but i guess someone has to suffer for their mistakes.
But the one night we did have was good, and the hostel as a whole is lovely and when we go back to brisbane, we'll try our best to stay here again.
