Great location in hip and trendy New Farm, but the hostel itself could be better.
Characterful rambling old building, with the downside being a very stuffy room and high noise levels from both outside and corridor. Manned reception hours seem limited and although bedroom was clean & tidy, wash room area was very cramped and messy. Pleasant balcony area to the rear, but the above ground pool below didn’t look too inviting, even on a steamy Brisbane day. Overall, still represents good value due to proximity to CBD and bonus of free wi-fi, plus couple of bus routes stops very close by. Chouquette Patisserie over the road is awesomely Francais and it’s worth taking stroll down the hill to Bitter Suite on Welsby Street if you fancy a quality meal matched with some decent craft beer.
