City break

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.
