We stayed here for nine nights over Christmas and new year. We had our own room and a bathroom right next door. The hostel was really clean. The kitchen was the best kitchen I've come across in a hostel, really well equipped and cleaned all the time by hotel staff. The rooftop has great views of the city. The pool...

Top ranking! Positive atmosphere, it makes wonders happen there. Brisbane YHA has everything you need: a little office space, the best morning yoga and I saw a cockatoo drink from the fountain by the pool. Thanks you guys!

I stayed here for 4 nights in an 8 bed dorm with en suite. The room was very small and didn't have much room for luggage, however large lockers are provided for luggage and valuables with a plug socket inside. The toilet and shower were kept very clean throughout the stay. Kitchen was clean, I didn't do much cooking in...

Nice modern building and facilities, not far from the main train/bus station bit of a walk from the city centre. Large kitchen and plenty of places to eat including the large terrace with great views of Brisbane. Close to a Coles and other bars and restaurants. Double room was spacious and clean but being on the ground floor meant being...

My experience was terrific from the start. The checkin person upgraded my room and gave me an internet voucher. The room was clean and had my own personal shower/bathroom. The amenities were great with tv room, lounge, movie room, game room, outdoor deck, swimming pool, onsite café, ping pong table, big kitchen and the list goes on. The place was...

Really enjoyed our stay at the Brisbane YHA. We stayed in a 4 bed dorm room which was cosy but had great huge lockers to put your backpack in (bring your own lock) as well as excellent air conditioning! Kitchen was great and well equipped, absolutely loves the rooftop dining/ pool area. There was also a good TV room to...

My friend and I are staying here for a couple of months and we both agree that out of all the hostels we've stayed in so far during our travels around Australia this one is the best. A few of the reasons for this: The location is good, about a 10 minute walk from the centre and there's a supermarket...

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...
