      So far I have liked this hostel. It is middle of the road for a hostel in terms of cleanliness and facilities. It could be better, but there are many worse. It is a good location near a major train station. It is a block from many bars and restaurants (also adult shops if that sort of thing bothers you) near China Town (great food!) It is fairly clean as far as hostels go. The staff so far has been very friendly and helpful. There is also a fun bar on premesis and there is free WiFi in the lobby area and free cereal for breakfast. My room (8 female room) was very nice and quiet, but I sleep with an eye mask and ear plugs in any hostel.

      This hostel is LOUD. My earplugs have been traffic proof, party proof and even siren proof in NY but this place rendered them USELESS! Free breakfast though :)

      This is by far my favorite hostel I have stayed in. The computer pricing is pricey though. The free breakfast is great, cereals and toast. There is a bar adjoining to the hostel. Always something on every night if you wish to join in. The rooms are small though.

      Groot hostel, goedkoop hostel, maar je mocht geen eigen drank drinken, vanwege de vergunningen die elk hostel in Queensland moet hebben.

      bunk in Brisbane is a popular large hostel and completely chaotic. unfortunately when i stayed here i was out at gods kitchen and arrived back to a 4 bed-dorm with 3 other men 1 female- i got back around 3 am cold/exhausted after a night out and hungry. the electronic key would not let me into my room- none of the other men who were sleeping would let me in after knocking, the room was so small i could see them sleeping and they refused to let me in! fair enough....reception a Chinese guy also refused to let me into my room and proceeded to make me wait for 40 minutes to fix my key and let me into my room. The staff was full of attitude not helpful/caring happy enough to let me sit on the floor for 40 minutes while they checked in new people.also was told if i asked one more time they would through me onto the street, and as it was saturday night there would be no were else to stay. hmmmm you decide.

      G'Day from Australia! (Not heard a single person say that yet but the locals are very friendly!) The last thing I expected to see was a turkey wandering around Brisbane! But there he was! And so were all his buddies, clearly enjoying some free range roaming in Australia. I also came across many an ibis (see photos) which emit a loud laughing sound …

      Is look to see what direction the water flushes in a toilet. The second thing an American does in Australia is try vegemite. You will you when you come here I guarantee it. So I believe the toilet this is an old wives urban legend tale like the alligator in the sewers. I believe that fallacy, if ever based on truth, was based off older toilet …
