ngaireboot I chose to book at Kookaburra because it's advertised as being adjacent to Roma St...it's a 25 - 30 min slog away! The initial reception was polite and friendly but the locked security door to reception when attempting to return my keys was a bit off putting. Nice and clean, not very welcoming though. Good value for money though.

ejrderks Luxurious,clean hostel in centre of town (10 minute walk to King George Square) Lovely roof terrace with swimming pool and laid back atmosphere (and music) and skyline views. Friendly staff prepared to help you with anything. Most of facilities need to be paid for:car park, internet... Overall the best YHA along the east-coast of Australia!

tom_christmas Enjoyed the stay at Bunk, very friendly and clean, good atmosphere. Bit of a walk from main places in the city though.
aj_mckay A basic, friendly hostel in an old fashioned traditional Queensland house on a residential street about 10 mins walk from the main transit centre (bus & train) and about 15 mins walk to the city center. The hostel had fridges and ceiling fans in the dorm rooms, a nice pool, internet access (1 PC) and a pool room with TV and DVD player etc. While we were there there were some long-term residents from Ireland, England and Germany who seemed to be there together. They were nice enough but if you're not in the mood to get drunk and smoke weed I'd give it a miss! Overall a decent, fairly priced alternative to the bigger 'party hostels' that are all too common in Australia.
