We stayed here for one night before flying home, of all the yha hostels we have stayed in this was the best one, we booked a double room and got one with an ensuite, it was clean and had everything we needed. The only downside was the aircon is set at 24 degrees and it's the middle of summer so...

I browse for a hostel and found YHA with best recommendation. Located 10 mins walking from Brisbane Train Center, near Suncorp Stadium and Coles supermarket. I love the hostel for its clean and quiet place. They have rooftop with pool and dining area. The low part of this hostel was the wifi connection only available on reception area, and kitchen...

We are a family of 4 with 2 children; we have stayed in many YHAs in the eastern part of Australia in these few years. We found our Brisbane YHA experience a good one. The check-in was very efficient. The car park was a little small so my car being a full sized family saloon had a little difficulty. The...

Having had an excellent stay here six years ago, this was our first choice hostel when we were due to visit Brisbane again. This choice seemed justified when we arrived at 8am, as the very friendly reception staff upgraded us from a private double to a private ensuite so that we could get in a room early, of which we...

Stayed a night there so wasn't able to explore much of the facilities but the cafeteria area was cool that has a door that leads out to the deck where people can eat and hangout, especially on a nice day or cool night. The pool area was by the deck too. The bathrooms and rooms were clean and the people...

I stayed in this hostel upon my arrival in Australia before my birding trip began so that I could recuperate from travel. I've stayed here before and loved the location and the rooftop pool and sitting area. Amazing view of the city from there. It's convenient to walk downtown or across the river, has a nice coffee shop and very...

We stayed on the 3rd floor which is by the main lifts and got woken up fairly regularly by people being unnecessarily loud in the corridors when returning late at night. We stayed in a double room as we're a couple and the decor was a bit prison/hospital-like. There is a cafe attached to the hostel where the prices are...

This is an amazing hostel. There is a rooftop swimming pool with fantastic views of the city. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The kitchen is very clean. I stayed in a four bed dorm. Each guest has a large locker which has a power socket inside it which was so handy! The hostel runs events e.g. pub crawls...

A big hostel, more of a 'hotel feeling'. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. There is a little café where you can have breakfast and a drink at night. The view is amazing. Free Wifi only available at reception (not at the other common areas such as tv-room or kitchen). Parking is often fully booked. A 10/15 minute walk into...

I've stayed here three times in total, this place is worth its money. It is very clean and quiet at night. The kitchen is more then big enough. It is a bit out of the center, however the view at the top makes up for that. Staff was ok. Can definetly recommend.
