Liked: The owners are extremely friendly and hospitable. The location is up a small hill in a quiet, residential area. A short walk takes you to Chinatown, Fortitude Valley and the free loop town shuttle which which runs from 7am-6pm quickly transports you downtown, by the river and all the main tourist sites. The hostel is great value for the money with a full kitchen and shared tv room.

Disliked: If you have a heavy suitcase, best to have a cab take you there as the hill is steep.

Liked: Great location, reeally friendly staff. We booked a deluxe room which was huge and had a fridge, sink, towels and aircon. The toilet and kitchen facilities are really near the rooms and are really clean. Location is great too, it's a really short walk to the river, CBD and all the sights.

Disliked: There are two dogs and they do look scary when you first see them (they're pretty big) but they're absolutely adorable and we only actually saw them on check in and check out.

Liked: I loved the old fashioned feel of the building - a 1930s building, in a nice quiet location, but not too far from the centre. David was very friendly and couldn't have been more helpful. Nice clean accomodation, good kitchen facilities and fast, free wi-fi.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Very friendly staff- David especially, an older property but very clean, bar fridges in rooms and small but functional communal kitchens and living areas. Location wise a 5-10min walk from the city in nice quiet area in residential street. Perfect for what we needed.Would definitely go back, great value for money.
