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!

Liked: It is next to the train station, there is a 24 hour check in desk, and the girls' bathroom has swipe key access.

Disliked: It smelt bad, the rooms have a vent above the door that lets in lots of light and noise,and the bedding (blanket) looked shabby.

Romantic getaway

06 April 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It was centrally located. It was literally kiddie corner from central station which made transit really very easy. Located above a bar which made it easy to get out for the night as well.

Disliked: Shortly after arrival me and my girlfriend were changing and someone entered the room. The front desk put two different parties in my private room. It made my girlfriend very uncomfortable for her first hostel experience.

City break

07 March 2012

Liked: Location is great, very close to central station and city. It has an elevator and I had a heavy suitcase so that was great!!

Disliked: The rooms smell, the kitchen is very dirty and there are few bathrooms per floor. My room was very far from the bathroom. The bed linens were not clean and the beds do not have a light as in many other base hostels, so if you want to sleep you have to turn off the room light and the rest of the people cannot do anything, or the other way...

Liked: Location to Brisbane city centre was really close and also to the Central Metro Station which is highly useful in getting the AirTrain if required.

Disliked: The kitchen was far too small for the amount of people staying at the hostel plus the cleanliness of the overall hostel was a mess. A dead cockroach was located outside my room and i had a mini lizard in my dorm share. The kitchen was also in a disgusting state with lack of cleaning facilities in decent condition.

Liked: Great location,. Travel desk. Restaurant/bar next door serving cheap meals & drinks (although can be quite noisy if you stay on the first floor)

Disliked: Compared to other Base hostels I have stayed in it was not as clean & definitely hasn't had a refurbish for some time. We stayed on the 1st floor, rooms were nice enough and spacious but staying on this floor can be noisy due to the music playing in the bar below.
