ENORMOUS hostel Jan 14, 2013
Bunk has some great character aspects upon first entering the hostel - there is a clear-glass panelling along the reception desk with gruesome 3d images of a croc devouring an unsuspecting and disembowled Barbie, there is multiple 3d Australia maps on the walls with miniature, small scale representations of there is to see in different places, there are funny posters and general interesting art works decorating the walls.

It is expensive. We paid $31 per night for a 6-bed dorm which seemed pretty normal in Brisbane. The room was en suite but i would have preferred to pay less and have shared bathroom facilities.

The room was clean enough but the beds were THE LOUDEST and creakiest beds known to man. They are made from metal and any time anyone turned over in their sleep during the night it woke me!

The wifi costs $4 for 24 hours. The air con is always on in the the rooms all day at a very bearable and comfortable temperature of 23 degrees. Although, my boyfriend was coming down with something on our final night and he was burning up in the bed. When i asked the receptionist if she could turn the air conditioning down a few degrees so would not, claiming if they turned it down it would 'break'! What air con is only made to endure 23 degree output? None that i'd ever come across.

The reception can be busy and it can take a while to get served.

The kitchen is well-equipped. You get a free alcoholic beverage (cocktail) upon arrival.

Coolest decor i have seen in a hostel! :-S Nov 11, 2011
I stayed here for 3 nights. The first thing you will notice is the decor when you walk into the reception.. you cannot take your eyes off the barbie dolls, the funky chairs, the staff are even the most colourful i have seen :-)

I was in a big dorm, ten beds i think! But it was separate in two halfs which made it seem smaller with a shower room and toilet in the dorm. Because the beds are divided you get more privacy. There are lockers for your personal items.

The staff are very helpful.. They organised my australia zoo trip and my friends safari trip with no hassles.

The overall vibe in this hostel is cool. Birdys Bar is below and is worth checking out for backpackers. Bunk is in a great location in the valley for nightlife and walking distance to the cbd.

The only downside was we were waiting a long time for the bus to pick us up from the bus station to take us to the hostel but i wouldnt let that defer you from this place :-)
