What exactly is a hostel?

In a hostel, travellers typically book a single bed in a shared room, with anywhere from 4 to 12 bunks or more—though some hostels have private rooms available. Hostels focus on providing shared experiences at super-low prices, and most have common rooms like terraces, living rooms, and game rooms. The best hostels in Brisbane offer amenities like communal kitchens with stovetops, free WiFi and computer stations, and locations near public transit, which helps cut down on your costs even more.
