          When you go to a hostel, you know you are staying in a budget accommodation. This means in my opinion that there are always things that are good and things that are bad. That being said: Banana Benders does a lot of things good, and...More

          Hi, do you have a shuttle service from the greyhound stop?
          6 December 2016|
          Answer
          Response from MLBarber |
          As the hostel is only a short walk from the Brisbane Transit Centre on Roma Street where the Greyhound stops, it is unnecessary for a shuttle service to get there.
