I enjoyed my stay at Brisbane Yha, the rooms were a decent size and the ensuite was modern and clean. The communal spaces on the top floor and the outside terrace on the ground floor were great for relaxing and checking emails etc. Downside, the only food and drink on offer (aside from a vending machine) was a cafe that doesn't keep great hours. Its almost pointless it being there!

Having a secure car park was good. A friendly atmosphere. I had cold showers the last two nights.

No hand drying in the food area, paper towels would be fine even if I had to buy a small pack from reception. The t.v. room's aircon was stuck on v cold whiçh caused problems & the avaliable films need to be at least listed in the room rather than looking through cd's in reception also could not see how to switch to ordinary t.v. channel. This is one of the YHA's high end hostels & I had a good 4 nights here would not look for another hostel if I visit the city again.
