Great Staff who go above and beyond to be helpful, reasonable rooms
Really friendly staff who genuinely enjoy and take pride in their work. The room was basic but had all the essentials. The hostel itself is a little tattered around the edges but it actually ended up feeling homey.
Very friendly and relaxed place to stay
I stayed here for nearly a month and it was a fairly clean place to stay and everyone was really, really friendly.
Good location in the West End and very cheap.
Bedbugs! Need I say more?
This hostel was ok but what was off putting is that although we didnt experience bedbugs firsthand we saw mattresses being pulled out everyday and hoovered because so many people were being bitten! it was disgusting. The reception staff were very unhelpful. TV room nice and big though and kitchen big too. No one told us we had to get our cutlery and plates from reception for a deposit so when it came to cooking the reception had closed and we had nothing to use to eat with (see unhelpful staff). the showers were filthy dirty!
Worst we ever stayed among backpackers in Australia
This is the worst backpackers we stayed in Australia. Paid for A$49 for a double bedroom on 22 May 08. The room smells and kitchen so dirty. Can't even find a spoon or fork, and all things so messy. We traveled over western australia and around gold coast. This is the worst place we ever stayed. The place also so old and not maintained. Toilets old and limited water. Sorry to say but I don't understand why is it rated so high. We just can't wait to get out of there for one-night stay. Staff are quite friendly, that's all we can say.
This was a pretty good place. Located in a quiet suburb a short walk from Southbank and the city. It's very clean, which was my main concern in Brisbane after hearing everyone tell me stories of filthy, infested hostels in Brisbane.
Stayed one Month in a double. Internet Access/Availability -- $5 per hour. Communal Kitchen (No Oven), Storage boxes available ($2 deposit), Fridges in some rooms, Utensils kit ($10 deposit). This hostel has a saltwater pool and a communal TV/DVD lounge. They also provide a free shuttle bus into the CBD every hour. Work Assistance -- Poorly managed notice board, no personal assistance. SomeWhereToStay is a motel-type hostel located in Brisbane's West End. The hostel consists of two two- to three-story, stilted houses, and is in a suburban area. The nearest station (South Brisbane) is ten minutes' walk, and the hostel is a twenty-five-minute walk from the centre of Brisbane. For those who don't like to walk a free shuttle bus runs from the hostel every hour. The facilities in this hostel are reasonably well laid out and cleaned to a reasonable standard everyday. There is a selection of rooms from Dorms to Doubles and Twins. The staff members are helpful and provide no reason to complain, however the work assistance at this hostel is poor. The hostel is located ten minutes' walk from the nearest Coles supermarkets, and is close the West End cafes and Restaurants.
I had a great time there! Nice and laidback staff. It's clean and a cool area. I really recommend this hostel!
it seems pretty good to me. the coach service is very handy. it takes you into the transit centre and anywhere else near the city you want to go every hour for free. there is a cutlery set and fridge basket you can get for free (payable only with a small refundable deposit). the rooms and kitchen are reasonably clean. you can cook your own meals with provided utensils. it is close to many shops and a supermarket. it is not far from the city centre. the staff are pretty helpful.
