Lights in shower/toilet room should go out automatically. Wasn't clear on lift info board which floor reception was on. Could not buy postage stamps, no coffee machine. Cafe not open Sundays. Could serve better snacks, rather limited. TV in outside space got wet when it rained. Outdoor heater needed. Nowhere to hang clothes up in dorm/bathroom. No spare loo rolls Nice light over bed, plenty of power points. Microwaves dirty, Insufficient bowls, small plates. Insufficient seats on movie night.

We liked our ensuite room with it's view of the Brisbane river and television! The kitchen was well organised and clean and had all the equipment we needed. This hostel has a pleasant indoor dining area and a lovely roof terrace where we were able enjoy our breakfasts and spend some pleasant evenings. There is also a nice little swimming pool. The hostel is conveniently situated just a short walk up hill from the main transit centre for the Greyhound buses and Roma Street train station.

Obviously it's a hostel and not a hotel - but for a hostel this is an incredibly nice one, it's everything you would want. No complaints whatsoever, and I'm white a lucky person. It's clean and comfortable and the aircon works great. Luke at the reception is awesome. Best YHA we have stayed at, and we've been in the Yha's all over Australia.
