Brisbane City YHA: Where to stay in Brisbane, Australia
By the time I emerged from the train station, I was nearly completely spent. Brisbane is the sixth and final stop in our trip across Queensland and the northern Territory. Albeit rewarding, it had been an exhausting journey. A good rest would be very welcome. Thankfully, we would be staying at Brisbane YHA.
As YHA’s flagship branch in Queensland, we expected only terrific things from this hostel and we weren’t disappointed. When we made it through its gates, we were greeted by a spacious common area and a adequately-staffed reception. After checking in, we were told to make it to the next building through the backdoor, and to our surprise, we were greeted by a 5-story building. Judging from the hostel’s facade, I wouldn’t have known that this place was huge.

Rooms and Rates
We booked a twin room, airconditioned. It was basic and minimalist, with only a television set and a framed image adorning its walls. The room looked and had a good view of Brisbane River. The beds weren’t hotel-grade (expected) but it was comfortable and smelled clean.
After dropping my bags, the first thing I did was check out the rest room, the cleanest I’d seen in any hostel anywhere. It wasn’t that big but had enough room to step around.
That’s me in the mirror. Ha ha

Amenities and Service
Brisbane YHA has nearly everything a weary backpacker needs. It already made a good impression even before reached our room. The building where rooms are housed was easily accessible by means of a keycard, which makes sure that only guests can enter. The lobby of each floor is decorated with Australian scenes, from surfboards dangling from the ceiling to images of the terrific barrier Reef.
Cafe on the ground floor
Kitchen and Cafe. There is a cafe on the ground floor, where you can meet like-minded guests. Or you could prepare your own meal at their well-equipped kitchen. For the playful, there is a games room, where you can take pleasure in a round of billiards.
Wi-fi. There is complimentary wi-fi, but as expected it is good only for browsing and probably enjoying light videos. faster connection is available for a fee. We didn’t have to worry about it because the wi-fi passcode that we purchased online back in Airlie beach was also working in Brisbane.
Other Amenities. The reception also has a excursion desk, where you could see a gazillion brochures so you could choose from the lots of activities you can do in Brisbane. and you can also ask someone from the staff, who were always smiling, friendly, and eager to help. The reception is open 24 hours.
Bike rental is also available. the best part, there is a swimming pool on the rooftop, overlooking Brisbane River and the central service District.
After checking out, we were thrilled to learn that we could store our luggage in their locker room (for a small fee) because our flight was not until the evening.

Located along upper Roma Street, it can be reached after a 10-minute walk from the Roma St. Train Station. but with 20kg on my back and a slightly uphill route, it kind of felt a bit longer. but it stands next to other well-known hostels in the area.
I’m not sure if there are better areas in the city, but one thing I liked about it is that it’s just a short walk to South Bank, where we spent much of our time. The central service district is a little farther, 20 minutes on foot. but it’s always a happiness walking around Brisbane so we didn’t really mind. Along the way, we even had small chats with other travelers loitering in front of the other hostels.
All things considered, it was absolutely our best hostel experience in Australia and one of the best anywhere in the world.
