Sleepless night
Got room next to front door and was woken up through the night by people grappling with security keypad. First and last visit.

Great place to stay
I stayed here with my mom and it was at a great price. The rooms are nice and friendly, and the building is in good shape. It's a colonial style and I love the chandeliers everywhere! A kitchen means you can cook your own food. The other guests were all very quiet and friendly. There's a bus stop really close by, and it's just a hort walk to South Bank bus and train stations, where nearly every bus and train connects to the city and outskirts. Night Owl is just accross the street, as are some cafés and restaurants. And it's just a short walk to Aldi in West End. We enjoyed our stay, and it was a great base for us to explore Brisbane from. Will defintiely stay again when coming to Brisbane.

Great atmosphere and location
Location - an easy walk to the conference centre and restaurants. Beautiful old Queenslands house. Staff friendly and helpful.
I have always been a 5 star hotel traveler, and this was my first venture into staying in hostels. I was pleasantly surprised, and would definitely stay at Minto Colonial Accommodation again. My room had everything I needed and the bed was comfortable. the kitchen appeared to be fully equipped, however there were plenty of reasonable restaurants in the vicinity so I ate out. I found management very helpful and welcoming, and loved the atmosphere of the house itself. Would recommend to other travelers.

Home away from home
Mingling with strangers and ending up as friends, low cost and near to all amenities
Pleasantly comfortable. Just like at home. Strangers become family members and we chitchat until late at night, swapping stories and food. Safe environment and near to amenities. Good value for money.

Not to my expectation
Location to Event hall
Did not meet my expectation. The location is good as it is near my event venue but the pictures and what is the actual hotel did not meet my expectation thus I did not stay beyond 1 day.

Good location, cold & sparsely furnished room.
Good location. Bus stop right outside. Shops nearby.
Room was very cold as there're holes in the floorboards.
