I requested a four bed female dorm. One of the girls had her boyfriend staying in the room which I found very awkward. The photographs do not give a fair representation of the rooms. It was like living in squalor and I cannot say one positive thing about it.
Loved staying in Chill backpackers. Me and my boyfriend stayed in a private double room the room was spacious for a hostel and good shelving space. I liked that there was a female only bathroom.. (with hair straighteners and hairdryer 😍)
Will definitely stay again if we visit Brisbane on our travels. Thanks Chill!
Love Eleanor (P) and Greg x
This is a well managed central hostel. If you’ve been denied access to stay in a dorm as has been the case for several of these reviewers, you can be sure there was a good reason! Such as the staff realised you would most likely bother other guests in the room. I welcome hostels being proactive at the point of check-in and ensuring that you don’t have drug users, the mentally ill and homeless people in dorms offered to Backpackers. Hostels are the cheapest place to stay in a big city but are not care homes.
Had a great stay at Chill Backpackers. The staff is friendly and helps you every way it can. The rooms have a good size, dnt have lockers though. The toilets are clean. The cardreaders on the doors are not the newest and sometimes it takes some tries to get into your room. Great kitchen and rooftop area.
First of all, super clean. It seemed like staff were constantly around cleaning parts of the hostel. Loads of space in the common areas, never felt overcrowded. Kitchen was a little on the small side and needed more cooking utensils but not a huge issue! The room was a good size and staff were so friendly and helpful. The only real downside was having to get the key reset several times as it stopped working and we were left locked out of our own room! Location was excellent and there were wonderful views of the city! Lots of activities happening in the evenings so it made it easy to meet people if that’s what you wanted! We ended up extending our stay a few days because we loved the city and this hostel so much. Definitely cheaper to book through apps rather than reception though! But overheard them saying they will match prices if you can show them where you saw it.
