The corridor is smelly and the room is small. There is no window inside the room and the walls are very dirty. There is not hot shower no mater in the morning or mid-night! The Luckily, I only stay one night in Brisbane.

We were a group of 4 and arrived late at the hostel. We got a 4 bed dorm without air conditioning. This being a cheap hostel we didn't expect much only the very basic things that can be expected even from a cheap hostel. We just wanted to have a good night's sleep. That was impossible because there was no...

The ventilation is really bad,,it is warm and it stinks. Possibly because everybody has their doors open to let the heat out. small windows and not very comfy beds. Pillows are old and brown. expensive, but free parking. Good view from terrace! Music playing at the kitchen and chill vibe

Clean facilities. I stayed in the 4 share female dorm and was happy with the room. Room had limited space for luggage, when four are staying, but this wasn't a real problem. The car park was very small and tight, but it is good that it is free (it's the CBD of Brisbane!), if you have a vehicle. Otherwise a...

The rooms are minimal. The facilities are basic. The service is not at all kind or welcoming. You have to pay for internet use, deposite for plates and cutlery and there is not pool. The only thing that i found good is the location... Aprox. 20 min from west end and south Brisbane. Now true... You are not in the...

I have stayed in hotels throughout my life, yet it was the first time that management refused to give me an extra blanket when I said I was cold at night. Extremely unfriendly, the guy would rather have me freeze than give me an extra blanket. He said that the bed already had a blanket (a 2mm blanket not warm...

I stayed 2 nights in a 4-dorm. The room was clean but a bit tiny for 4 people as we all had quite a big luggage. Restrooms were clean as well and we could enjoy a free hair dryer. I though it was a bit far from CBD but overall, it was alright

Not too happy with the place. It is old and mouldy in some areas. While it has linean includes, I was suprised to know that if didn't include towels, so I had to pay extra for it. This was extremely disapointing! Probably will not return.
