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.

Liked: I had a lovely stay at Minto House. The queenslander house has the most darling verandahs, old vintage furniture and comfortable beds. The staff were so kind and friendly. They let us check in early, and nothing was too much hassle. The location was brilliant; a pretty close walk to everything in West End, and not too far from the city. The area was safe for street parking (free), and the other people staying in the hostel were friendly.

Disliked: It was a little noisy at night (it's on a main street), and noise travelled within the house (which is common in queenslander homes), but a good set of earplugs helped.

Liked: Its location was ideal for my visit to the Brisbane Conference Centre, with a bus stop almost outside the door and the station a short walk away. It's a lovely old house that is well maintained, with a large front verandah.

Liked: Very quiet area, very nice cafe nearby called pear and a 24hr convenience store the guesthouse guests have access to a pool as well. the wifi worked fine.

Disliked: the guesthouse is just so random; such a mishmash of different things; there's not really any reception you just turn up and there's a sheet telling you which room to go to, so no one to give you info about the city. well intentioned hosts though. the kitchen is large, but with very random equipment. definitely not a place to meet other people, its way too quiet for that.

Liked: Great. Sort of a cross between a hostel (with the common areas such as living, cooking, balcony, etc) and a hotel (our room had its own fridge and television for practically the same price as a regular hostel room).

Disliked: A bit of a walk to the city, but we were happy to get the legs moving for the 2km/20 min walk to the CBD each day.

Liked: This hostel has a very nice feel to it, very homely. Love the location - not too far out of town but not right in the CBD.

Disliked: Room was pretty small. We got twin bunks despite booking a double, not that it's too big a deal!
