Customer review

06 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Clean, easy to find and in a great location. the privacy screens are great in theory, but do make meeting other people in your room hard as everyones tucked away in their compartment, and it did seem to make people forget that people were there/sleeping so made more noise than a usual dorm when they got back.

21 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I stayed at Bunk for over two weeks in Winter 2009. The staff (especially Kana) were helpful (with the one exception of the job desk guy), and the rooms though crammed, were decent. The only downsides about the place are: 1. the cockroaches (but I heard from other travellers that had stayed at Base and other hostels in Brisbane that Bunk's bug problem isn't nearly as bad as the other places), 2. the kitchen could use more mugs and utensils (I think people kept taking them to their rooms) and 3. the laundry machines don't clean your clothes well (I had to put them through the wash twice to get them clean - with the dryer that comes to about $9AU).Perks about the place: there's an elevator so you don't need to lug your luggage up the stairs, each bed has it's own light, and it's pretty secure (each room has storage lockers, there are small storage lockers in the lobby for your passport etc, and the doors are locked at night).

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
