I have booked a double room 1 day before arrival for 3 nights and we didn't realised that Brisbane was nearly booked out because of the cricket game. We were lucky that we found this hostel and that they still had 1 room left. Firstly I was really concerned about booking into a hostel. I thought about teens, dirt, noisy & parties. But this hostel was excactly the opposite. Really quite and great location only 10 minutes walk away from the city, no parties and absolutely clean. When I called I had Wendy the owner on the phone and she was amazingly friendly and she told us that there is a airport shuttle service for $15 p.p. which brings us straight to the hostel. We followed her advise and we got picked up by John the funny bus driver who dropped us off. It was already 8 pm in the evening and Wendy came out of the building to welcome us warmhearted as she saw the bus. I found this wonderful and I felt like returning back home. I must admit that I was totally surprised by the cleanliness. It is a old building, but great maintained. The sleep quality was ok too, because Wendy banned all bunk beds in the hostel and we had a nice and comfortable doublebed. This hostel is absolutly great value for money and I would prefer staying there rather than in any other 4 or 5 star hotel. Well done!! We are really impressed!! :-)
