Just an average hostel
Nothing stroke me as being especially good or bad about this place. Would certainly look for a smaller place next time. Way to busy

Good stay if u are on tight budget.
Staff are friendly and helpful and fairly well equipped amenities
Private room doesn't come with towels and television which most private hostels do. Location was pretty far from the shopping district at queens street. Nonetheless, hostel and rooms are clean

Second Time Stay In YHA Brisbane City
The Kitchen, The Room View, The Information Provided.
YHA Brisbane City was the 1st accomd that I stayed in Brisbane. I fall in love with the people over there and the environment. Beside YHA, that is a little restaurant which serve good food. The staffs over there are very friendly, and they would like to share about what you can do in the City & Gold Coast if you ask them. One thing which I think YHA will need to improve is their WIFI, it's not free. Thanks YHA for giving me and my girlfren a very good and warm memories.
