Liked: Location and friendly staff

Disliked: Thin walls, kitchen utensils were not working or not there. No fly screens so was eaten alive. No fans in the bedroom and no window you could open without losing security.

Liked: Lovely old colonial house with a great view of the city. Short walk to the southbank. Free wifi. On street parking. Clean facilities and big kitchen and living area.

Disliked: Everything was great. Could shut the front door or have security lock (there are locks on bedroom doors), however it felt anyone could wander into the property.

Liked: After several months travelling and staying in hostels it was a breath of fresh air to stay at the Minto shared house. Big kitchen with full facilities, clean bathrooms and a great location were all great. The other residents were quiet so it felt like we had the place to ourselves a lot of the time.Clost to local shops and restaurants.South Bank is just 15 minutes walk away.House is spotlessly clean.

Disliked: The fact that the cleaner was the only member of staff that we met was a bit strange.There was a welcome booklet but it would have been preferable if there was someone to meet us and show us the facilities.

Liked: It was clean.

Disliked: The toilet was IN the bathroom instead of next to it. And with only 2 bathrooms, it can become difficult to find a time slot to shower or go to the toilet.

Liked: Gorgeous old house which has been decorated nicely. Easy to get to from southbank train station. 10mins to southbank restaurants etc and probably 20 into brisbane central. There didn't appear to be any staff onsite but the was a notice board directing you to your room so easy enough to get settled in. Not a place to stay if you're looking to party but nice if you just want somewhere a bit more chilled. Towels and soap provided along with tea and coffee.

Disliked: A bit loud because of the main rd and the walls are very thin so you can hear the other guests.
