I stayed here alone for only the weekend. It was definitely a place I'd go back to. I arrived late but was greeted without any fuss by Jen, one of the managers. She was friendly and very welcoming. There was no barrier of customer-staff member that you might find at other hotels or hostels. My room was clean, with a fridge and small television. Perfect for a two night stay.
The area is rather hilly, so if you're in a position to hire a car, do it. I walked for everything - the CBD and the Gabba, which each took roughly 30 minutes.
There is room to relax on a couch, cook food in the shared kitchen or just sit on the deck and enjoy the view of the Brisbane CBD.
Good value. Good place. Highly recommend.
