Liked: It was quiet, the rooms were spotless, the staff were really friendly and the attached cafe/bar did the best breakfast I've had in Oz! It's about a 10-minute walk into the city proper but this didn't prove any problem.

Disliked: Nothing really!

Liked: Clean big hostel. Nice frontyard for hanging out.

Disliked: Asked about a recommendation for restaurant and was sent to a fancy tapas place. Good food, but a backpackers receptionist should be aware that most backpackers won't pay $40-50 on dinner.

03 August 2013 Marco would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is well laid-out, spacious, modern, clean and a nice place to be. The facility is genuinely clean - there's no lack of maintenance on the exterior and inside always looks and smells great. The greenery and decor around the place is really nice too, adds a lot of atmosphere. The hostel hosts weekly games and movies, as well as deals on food and drink, and maintains a fun, mingling atmosphere. The location is aces - central to either the city centre or Roma St station - Brisbane's transport hub - with easy access to nightlife, Gold Coast and the airport. The staff basically have the attitude of fellow hostel guests - friendly, upbeat, extra-mile level of helpful and great to talk to. Cafe/pub right by the front door - food and booze are never far away. YHA Brisbane is *the* place to stay in Brisbane. I can afford nice hotels easy, but bother that noise - YHA kicks ass.

Disliked: It has the misfortune of being not only right next to a metro railway line, but also happens to be on a turn on final approach into Brisbane's main station, so the squeal of the breaks of the trains makes one unable to have their windows open at night. I didn't lose any sleep, but forget getting fresh air at night. Nothing the hostel can do about it, o'course, but it's there.
