This hostel is the one that unfortunately will remain in my mind for being the most disgusting and unhelpful hostel of them all whilst we travelled up the east coast. I booked a room for a night via internet and then booked a separate room for two nights via phone because the website crashed during the process. When phoning i asked that we be placed in a room in the new part as i had read on here that the rooms in the old part were none too nice (thats an understatement). When we arrived they had no recollection of our phone call and only the room i booked via internet which to my horror was in the old part. We complained and said we had requested the new bit but as this room was not booked over the phone and we hadn't written it in an email they didn't know and had no new rooms left. To top it off they told us that there weren't any new rooms which wasn't true because on further inspection we found the new rooms and they were really nice. We stayed in the old room for one night and then managed to move to a slightly better room for the next two nights which although was not in the new part it had been re-decorated. I definitely would not recommend this place to anyone until the refurbishment of all the rooms is complete because the room we stayed in i believe was uninhabitable for humans. It really did spoil my time in Brisbane which is a lovely city, it was just such a shame that we had to go back to that place at the end of the day. I strongly recommend Tin billy which is brilliant!
