I stayed here a while ago and forgot to write this review but the guy working at the front desk who checks people in and out was so rude. He was the manager and had no clue how to welcome foreigners. He was snappy and harsh. He just wanted to take your money and get you out of his hair. Not nice for young ladies traveling alone. Plus the hostel wasn't spacious and was in a boring area. Pictures on the website are deceiving.

Unfortunately within the industry sometimes competitors write terrible reviews to deter people booking, clearly this is the case, please note the name on the review spells BLEAD New Farm is one of the best suburbs in Brisbane and home to the arts, definitely not boring, in the 6 years I have owned Bowen Terrace I have never had a male in the front office. All pictures are true, you get what you see.

Stayed at Bowen Terrace for 3 nights last week on business... Perfect for me! Decided to splash out a little more on a Queen room- couldn't be happier! Very comfy bed, nicely appointed en suite and the ambience of the room as well as the whole property was just lovely- just like a country bed and breakfast but 5 minutes drive to the city. Maria was very welcoming on arrival and showed me right through. Very clean, very tidy- obviously a well run ship! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Well worth extra money for a queen room with ensuite.

Hey Nick
it is a great location if you are here for work and the house is like home away from home, glad you liked it.

I've stayed at Bowen Terrace a couple of times now and each time has been great. This time we had two separate rooms for our family of three. Clean bedding, super lovely staff and a house that has a tonne of character. Definitely recommend staying here for reasonably priced accommodation that's close to restaurants and the ferry.

Room Tip: Worth getting a room with a bathroom for extra convenience :)

A very handy and good value stay. An older style house which has been well set up for approx 15 rooms. Has a small pool and good lounge, kitchen and external deck area. Has a security pad access when not staffed. The walls a re not very sound proof but that was the style of building. Found that other residents were very considerate re noise after hours. Recommended.

Room Tip: stay away from the kitchen area

Hi Marek
Thankyou for your review, the location is so awesome, so close to everything but has retained the character.

I recently stayed in one of the single bedrooms of this gorgeous old Queenslander. It was just so sweet and cosy. Very clean and perfect location for getting out and about around inner city Brisbane. Definitely would go back!
