            Individual guest reviews

            • Couple
              3.2

              The bathromes were extremely filthy, the rooms so basic it saddened me (only a bed and a small closet). There was an unrepaired hole in the wall, phrases written with marker on the windows and then there were the restrictions: no glass bottles allowed in the hotel, you couldn't have a beer in your room and one afternoon we returned from shopping and our room door stood wide open. Thanks to the buggy door lock. Luckily nothing got stolen. Really, really sad for 70 dollars a night. Never again

            • Single
              4.6

              The rooms and linen were clean and the cleaners were accommodating when I asked for an extra change of pillow and linen. However the shared facilities (kitchen and bathrooms) were awful.

              Extremely noisy even if the 'quietest' area of the hostel. Bar downstairs goes through until around 4 am and is very very loud.

            • Single
              6.6

              Meet people, be close to the city,

              Noise, recycling isssues, cleaness

            • Family with children
              3.2

              The only benefit was location

              Dirty rooms. Dirty toilets. Paint peeling off the Walls. Broken lift. Such poor so-called cleaning that the corners of rooms, toilets and showers were crusted with slime.

            • Single
              7.0

              Cbd located, cheap, elevator (though no quickly mended when out of use), international youth

              Parties until late with really loud music (though good music)

            • Single
              5.0

              Price is high but toilet is out side. I stayed at Sydney same type room with half of cost and with attached bathroom.

              No interest

            • Older travelers
              4.2

              I only enjor my experince with the elevator, which is merely seen in movies. It is old but still useful. Quite amazing.

              (1) Too much noise; (2) bathroom is awful; (3) no tv, eventhough at the current market small tv only sells at few hundreds; (4) No parking place.

            • Single
              3.8

              The hotel should clearly state that it is only for young backpackers that want to party till late in the night. I had practically no sleep and the place is old and run down. I woke up with the smell of fried food at 7.00 am. Worst stay in my 6 month trip. I went to their other hostel emabassy. That was a good experience.

            • Single
              7.8

              I liked that the hotel was close to Central Station and that I could get in and out of Brisbane quickly for an overnight trip. I would definitely stay for an overnight trip again but not for any longer.

              The room was hot and I couldn't get the window open for any fresh air and the lift would not stop on my level. There wasn't a towel in the room and I didn't know I had to bring one.

            • Single
              6.6

              Well located

              Showers and toilets are not clean enough - the room was very noisy

            • Single
              5.8

              Typical backpackers' hostel, placed very centrally in Brisbane, at a good price.

              It is a typical backpackers, not a hotel.

            • Single
              7.4

              Location and very good meals at a good price

            • Older travelers
              5.0

              Only got an hours sleep because there was people bouncing off the walls outside our room. No respect for others sleeping.

            • Couple
              6.6

              Being close to everything in the city and being able to come back from a big day of shopping to lay down and have a rest without travelling too far.

              A lot of backpackers are loud during the night, having sex loudly.

            • Single
              6.2

              Great locality

              Girl at the front desk was the rudist service industry staff member I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. The guy in the evening was very pleasant. The room was o.k. The building has an old world charm i.e. is run down and needs attention. Great location. Bottom line would I use it again. Yes, if I had to, but I would not take my wife there!!
