Stayed here for over 2 weeks in Jan 2014.
The people who work there are really nice and friendly, always happy to help. Also the TV room was a good place to chill & there was a football table & small pool to keep you're self amused.
The people who stayed there was also friendly as laid back when I was there. Good location as you don't get the noise from the city and the shuttle bus was really handy!
However... The rooms have no air con just a couple of rubbish fans so at night we were often roasting. I stayed in a 6 dorm room with a small en-suite. It was good to have it in the room but it wasn't the cleanest, plus the few shared facilities they have were on the other side of the hostel, so if more than one person in the room needed the bathroom it was a pain.
The kitchen is dirty and small so often had to wait for a while until we could cook. reception also lock the fridges and kitchen at night so not good if you are planning to work long hours in Brisbane.
The place in general seemed a bit crowded, particularly at night so folks were fighting to get a good seat to watch TV or to sit and eat.
It was pretty cheap so you get what you pay for, good place to meet other travellers but if you like places clean and tidy... it's probably not for you.
