Liked: The location is just perfect & the building, even though it shows quite a bit of wear & tear, has plenty of charm and has been adapted really well.

Disliked: There was a constant hum from the air-con machinery outside the window on the upper floors, but you can get used to it.

Liked: Not much apart from good location

Disliked: No air conditioning that worked. Club in the basement could be heard on the third floor up to 4am both nights. Combined with no air con doesnt equal a good nights sleep.

Liked: Great location, in CBD and just a short walk to Queen Street Malls, the Botanical Gardens, opposite Central Station. I guess its quite cheap so you get what you pay for. Good value for money at Down Under Bar - cooked breakfast $7 and meals for $10.

Disliked: So noisy!! In every other hostel I've stayed out, its noisy but at least is quite after 12am/1am latest and corridors are usually patrolled or have security cameras. I had one of the worst night sleeps ever, people skate-boarding down the corridor at 5am!! What is worst is that you can hear into every room because there is a window/screen with holes in above every door! The kitchen is quite poorly equipped, had to wait often for cutlery and washing up is never done apart from by people who work there cleaning the kitchen! Need tougher rules like in other hostels!

Liked: I think If you need a a good night sleep you would pay the extra for a hotel! But if your looking to meet new friends and have a drink on the roof (one of the best views in Brisbane) this is the place to stay, bar is always a few stairs down can be heard till late. A true backpacker experience.

Disliked: Stay away from level 1, a bit to messy. Down Under Bar great meal deals!
