Chill Backpackers
Ranked #115 of 143 Speciality Lodging in Brisbane
Reviewed 17 November 2017

Chill Backpackers is one of my favourite hostels, not just because of the free parking, the great view from the rooftops (yes more than one) and the really good wifi (even tho you have to pay for it), but also because you meet a lot of great people there.
The hostel is very clean, the people who work there are fantastic and you can be sure that you will never be bored.

Room Tip: All rooms are very nice

This place is great value, clean & friendly. It is really well located in the city centre close to the Suncorp stadium. My double room was nice & clean as were all the facilities. Free parking awesome!

The location is great and 2 terraces unreal to catch up with mates but unfortunately that's where it stopped. The keys continuously failed to work in the doors meaning we required staff assistance after reception had closed.
The lift also shuts down for the night which is fine, stairs never hurt anyone but again the keys failed to work in the doors to exit the stairwell.

Perhaps the worst experience were the toilets and shower area. They were nothing short of puttid. There was always water on the floor, there was one toilet that was blocked and filled to the brim with the remnants of someone's last meal. That was in that state for the whole 4 nights we were there.

The outdoor areas and location saved the hotel from a far worse review

This hostel and the big bird hostel (yellow building) are run by the same people. This is the worst hostel I have stayed in since travelling from Darwin down the east coast. Its dirty, people sit around smoking drugs all day and night and are still up partying at 3am while you try and sleep in your van right next to them!! We called the reception number twice on the first night we stayed here and someone came down asked them to be less noisy and cut the music off but half an hour later it was back on. On the second night we had residents kicking a ball against our van at midnight. When I reported all of this to reception they didn't even offer an apology. Rather go and stay in a caravan park or park up and stay in a room in another hostel where you will get a good nights sleep. We paid $39 a night for a powered site but got no sleep and the facilities in the hostel arent worth the money.
