Myself and 3 other friends were in Brisbane for 3 nights. Brisbane hotels are expensive and knowing that we will spend most of our time outside, we don't want to splurge on hotels. Aussieway is located on Cricket Street and is about 5 - 7 minutes walk from Roma Street Station. We took the train from GC to Brisbane (Roma Street Staion). From the station, turn to your right and walk straight on until you reach the 2nd traffic light (the first being the one steps away from the station building - for entries into the parking lots). Cross the road at the traffic light then turn right and walk underneath the bridge/flyover. Walk straight on until the traffic light then turn left. Walk up the hill (slight hill) until you reach the top. At the top, cross the road and lookout for Cricket Street. There is a small church/chapel at the top of Cricket Street. Walk down a few housed and you will find Aussieway. There are many restaurants located on 1 street away from Cricket Street and a supermarket (Coles) is about 5 minutes walk from Aussieway.
We stayed in the Family Room (1 double bed, 1 double-decker bed). There is a small fridge and towels are provided. However, there is no en-suite bathroom, meaning you have to share 2 common bathrooms (1 on the ground floor, one on the first floor). Besides that, air-cond and fan is provided and a dressing table. The lodging house also has a small pool, a common TV area and a kitchen which closes at 9pm. Overall, it is a decent place for the price paid although I wish there is an ensuite bathroom for the Family Room.
