Great value backpacker”

Good location, Reasonable price! I really had a great time at summer backpacker. and I decided to extend my stay there. Good place for stating your journey in Australia. After a week in Brisbane, I moved to Bundaberg to get the 2nd-year visa. I definitely will consider staying here when I come back.

Best hostel ever!”

The place is nice, cool and clean. The people too. Close to a supermarket and a bridge that takes you to South Brisbane, the CBD and the "fake beach" also known as the free public pools of Brisbane. Escellent to travel solo, you can make friends during breakfast or at the free food nights that are held some days weekly. The only bad thing is that they close the kitchen at night.

Lot of extras ”

The hostel is righthandside on the way coming out on the main street from Greyhound bus station. All of them are at the same point, on the other side of the road supermarket, cinema, restaurants, walking distance. Free breakfast, free dinners sometimes, activities organised. Ac in the room, which I do not like, but some people do. A small roofterrace with a view on the river. The road leads straight away to the center. Peter Pan tours can be booked.

Is what it is”

It's a place to get your head down. Bit of a walk into the city but no surprise, if you have looked at the map already. Nice rooftop with some benches to chill out and look at nice skyline at night or in the day. Kitchen was abit small, but clean and had everything you need in there. Staff made party nights for people to join in... cant review as I didnt go. Rooms had big lockers in (take your own padlock), or I think you can buy ag reception as they sold a few essentials. Place did have a funny smell though and noticed a few mould removal tubs though, so they are trying to sort it. It ain't The Hilton but it was never going to be, it's a cheap hostel... there is alot worse out there... could easily have stayed longer should I have needed too. The kitchen and rooftop are closed at a certain time (I think 10pm) so it is quiet at night and your able to get a nice sleep... which is the main thing imo!

Oké, but nothing special.”

Pros: the staff is friendly and really doing their best to keep everything clean. Kitchen opens at 5 am so that's nice when you have the catch an early flight. Wifi is oké, but not so good at the rooms. Cons: a walk to the center, but supermarket is around the corner. The matrasses where old/hard. You could feel the springs. During my stay the rooftop area was always wet because of the rain en the quiet room was always closed. Down at the reception/kitchen you have an area to sit for eating but not a comfortable seat to hang out. They have it upstairs with pillows to sit comfortably, but it's really messy and smelling (maybe more due to the Backpackers then bc of bad cleaning). AC is not really working very well. Thank God my room had windows, but not every room has. The shared bathroom and toilet for female at the ground floor was closed my whole stay so there was only one gender neutral one which wasn't that clean.

Good value hostel”

Stayed during covid 19 with interstate/international border restrictions. Some of the dorms have been changed in to private rooms due to lower guests and to comply with social distancing. Therefore the value to obtain a private room with bathroom was good. Room was quiet, had good air conditioning and kept fairly clean. The rooftop area has some storage and a rusty bbq that could do with some attention. Communal kitchen was tidy.
