Stayed here after travelling from Surfers, as reviews were great and location was perfect. Right next to the station and just a really really short walk away from the city. We booked an 8 shared mixed dorm. The room could barely squeeze us all in. Nowhere to put ourselves, or our luggage. The barely there air con, did nothing for...

Ask for Alison. She helped plan our tours whilst visiting the city. Very good location, with bus and coach stations situated opposite the hostel. Drink free hostel, but an excellent bar attached next door! Rooms were very clean and well kept.

Strategic location as this is just about 1 block away from Roma Street station. Perfect for those who are traveling from other cities/province. Everything is just basic --- they have a decent bed, comforter/blanket, pillow. No towels provided. Shower is pretty basic also. I just felt a bit icky with the room's carpeting as it's a bit sticky in the...

You would think by the name of this hostel that the location isn't great and travellers often choose to stay at Base Central instead in Brisbane. However this hotel I believe has a better location of the two. Especially for myself with my bags, as soon as I was off the greyhound the hostel is pretty much opposite the station....

Booked into 8 bed dorm. The room was seriously messy and had very little room to put my stuff. No lockers in room. Other occupants were long-term residents and it felt very clique. The en suite bathroom was ok. Wifi was not free - although just go to the greyhound shop over the road on George St for free access....

Unfortunately our visit was less than satisfactory, the staff at reception were wonderful but everything else was lacking. The room had cockroaches and holes in the wall stuffed with tissue paper. The taps didn't work properly and the bathroom door was broken. We actually booked a double bed but were given two singles. It was very noisy and people were...

Great location, and we only encountered friendly and helpful staff. The room (I stayed in an 8-bed female dorm) was a little lacking in storage space, but the beds were fairly comfortable--main complaint is a lack of power outlets. Bathroom was a little dingy but overall very functional (though had our room been full, not sure how sharing one ensuite...
