          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.

          Here we are in Brissy!!! Probably the last city to visit along the East Coast, before we get to Cairns.
          So we are staying at a hostel called Bunk, in Fortitude Valley. It's really nice and clean, but it's pretty quiet in our room, which is a shame, but fortunately some of our Byron and Surf Camp friends are here :) < …

          Brisbane, February 29th - March 3rd After leaving the Sunshine Coast we arrived in Brisbane for 3 nights. Unfortunately it was raining on and off for the entire time so we didn't enjoy it as much as we thought.

          The journey to Brisbane was nice, double seats on the Greyhound so its always a winning situation when that happens. Waited for the shuttle bus from the Hostel which saved me a 30minute trek in a storm to get there. The room is cool, its a 12 bed mixed dorm but the room has 2 levels. Both levels have 3 bunks, air con, lockers and a balcony. …

          The band Styx has a song titled "Too Much Time on my Hands." This is exactly how I felt being stuck in Brisbane. Although it is a proper city, especially compared to Cairns, and is home to 2 million people, there simply isn't much to do here. Most people pass through and stay a day or two but I had 4+ (the extra day or two in a hostel was cheaper …
