    • Have stayed in other YHA hostels in UK, USA and NZ and would rate this as absolutely the best. Would recommend it highly.

    • Staff are super friendly and helpful. The facilities are great, the rooftop has a small pool and a very clean kitchen so you dine outdoors with a nice view of the Brisbane's skyline.

    • Wonderful safe and clean facilities. Not to mention the absolutely fantastic staff! I was half-dead by the time I got there from the humidity, and one lovely staff member immediately gave me a zooper-dooper, thus stopping me from melting into a puddle of sweat on the floor. It was only a small thing, but the kindness shall not be forgotten :)
