The Hostelz.com Review - Genuine, independent review you can trust.
Brisbane Backpackers Resort is one of the most popular choices for young travelers visiting Brisbane. With free fully-operating Wi-Fi, a swimming pool, and its own bar, the hostel offers a perfect compromise between a peaceful resting place and a space in which to share some drinks with and meet fellow travelers.
Located in the South Brisbane suburb, Backpackers Resort holds one of the best locations among Brisbane hostels. It is barely a five minutes' walk away from the city center and its main touristic sites, and will let you enjoy a comfortable and calm stay while being able to live the South Bank night vibe at the same time. For the food-focused traveler, the hostel is just two blocks away from Boundary Street, with plenty of restaurants and chains offering a diverse culinary offer!
Rooms and Bathrooms
The hostel offers both private rooms and shared dorms, all of them with their own private -- though small -- bathroom. Shared dorms sizes vary between six and ten people, providing both air conditioning and fans for those hot Australian summer nights. Their beds are comfortable and the socket availability is very convenient, making it easy to charge your phone overnight.
The common open areas are one of the main attractions from Backpackers Resort. Its hall space, right next to reception, works as a chilling/working spot with multiple sofas, desktop computers, and charging points. Past the hall, you find the hostel's inner patio, its heart and meeting site. In this space we find the hostel bar, open from 5 to 10 p.m. and offering both drinks and delicious food, including a five-minute (monstrous) burger challenge for the voracious eater, with plenty of tables to sit, talk, and meet other travelers. You will find as well its fantastic pool, a basketball court, and a (not for free!) pool table.
The hostel holds almost every evening some kind of event or competition, from trivia nights to pool championships. Make sure to check them out so you don't miss a single bit of fun!
Brisbane Backpackers Resort is the kind of hostel in which any young traveler would enjoy staying. It offers the perfect compromise between a comfortable place to charge your batteries during the night and somewhere to meet new people and enjoy having drinks with others, all coupled with very competitive prices.
