Liked: Great cheap bar and restaurant

Disliked: The staff were rude and unfriendly, the bar downstairs was directly below the room I stayed in and therefore was blasting music into our sleeping quarters until 4am - if I had known that there was a club so close to the rooms we never would have stayed here. Furthermore, I was seriously injured when trying to close a window in the room - it had no safety latch and it fell directly onto my finger, which is now fractured. The staff had no interest in helping us with either issue and made no effort to compensate us.

Liked: cheap meal sometimes at the pub like 5 dollar including a pint of beer

Disliked: some staffs are really rude at the reception ! capacity and mobility is high so the toilets are hard to maintained clean ! And VERY NOISY !!! people talking in the corridor all the time and there are windows / gap on the doors so you could just listen and probably join people's conversation easily !

Liked: It was easy to find. Security was OK.

Disliked: I have stayed in over 30 Hostels worldwide and this is hands down the worst experience I have ever had. The double room that was booked was disgusting! I would not stay here again and am very disappointed that I wasted my money staying here this time. I spent as little time as possible at the property for many reasons - shared areas were not clean at any point. There was toilet paper and water (I assume) all over the bathroom floors, not just one but on different levels. The room was very disappointing, stained carpets, holes in the linen and pillow cases, windows that would not open, no ventilation in the room, the smell was gut wrenching and it was extremely small. The private room had a bed. That was the highlight - however, the mattress was in desperate need of replacement.

Liked: I liked the fact I got a free upgrade, this made me happy.

Disliked: It seemed very unsociable as a hostel, perhaps as a result of it's size. It didn't have the same backpacker feel most good hostels do. Went to Embassy and the rooms are much nicer, its much more modern.

Liked: Centrally located to almost everything in Brisbane. Within walking distance to most attractions and transport.

Disliked: No windows above the doors in the rooms so you can hear all the noises from every other room. The showers and toilets could use a good scrub as well.

Liked: Conviniently located to the Central Train Station and within the CBD to conduct business. The staff were very kind and friendly and the arrangements for extra two days was no hassle.

Disliked: Some of the rooms definitely need some tender care. And a handy man would be necessary to fix up this including making sure there were no leaks. Whatever happened on the night that brought the fire and rescue services would not have happened if there was a little bit of TLC to the bathrooms and the rooms.
