    Lovely place with splendid views of the river and Brisbane skyline from the rooftop terrace. The YHA is new, clean, well-equipped and the staff I was in contact with very helpful and friendly.

    Very nice hostel and decent location to the city and adjoining areas. Things like 7 eleven though are not easily accessible for late night needs. The staff was friendly enough but not really good at giving directions. On site restaurant was very good and decently priced. I would stay here again if I come back to Brisbane.

    Brisbane City YHA is pretty good value for money. Safe facilities, clean beds, clean bathrooms - I'll definitely be staying here again!

    I had an absolute wonderful stay at the Brisbane YHA, even though it was only one night. I had a tour cancel on me and Becky J at the lobby counter helped contact the company to get me my refund back. She was amazing!! I couldn't believe her willingness to help. The staff there was very friendly and gave me great spots to bike to. I was very happy that they told me about all the free things there are to do in Brisbane. My room was very clean and you could always find something to do in the hostel.

    Brilliant hostel and Brisbane . Staff excellent and helpful in booking trips etc always happy and friendly. The best yha so far as have stayed in cairns and airlie beach and your facilities far outweigh theirs. Modern and clean especially communal areas eg kitchen

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
