4/5 Good

  • Liked: Staff & service

Stayed 2 nights in Nov 2018


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Two-way Bargain: you get what you pay for

2/5 Star rating. Great location. Laid back style receptionist. Car park is always full however there is sufficient space along the side road. Although the rooms are dated, windows and floor boards squeak and traffic noise tend to flow in, othee guests are quiet and tidy. The bunk beds especially the top ones really are unstable/squeaks/ too small to climb up and down. Sleeping in can be a challenge with daily house keeping entering the room and vacuuming (which is nice to have a free service). Entry up the staircase, there's a strong repulsive smell. Quick and Easy booking/check out service.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Convenient for my visit to Brisbane

Watch staff carefully in how they dealt with customers, I was most impressed, management should really complientthe staff, especially Sarah

Pros: Simple and convenient

Cons: Maybe a small table or chair in room

Location: Very convenient for conference center, a very pleasant walk to river area.


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

Very loud until 5am, dirty

Worst hostel ever. Rooms smell and are dingy. 2 bathrooms to whole hostel and one door was always broke and wouldn't close. Didn't get any sleep due to other guest's shouting and laughing until 5am. Apparently there is a night manager who is supposed to stop the noise but didn't see the night manager or hear anyone putting a stop to rude people. If you are looking for a place to be awake for your whole time there choose this place otherwise give it a miss.
