Palace Backpackers is located in the heart of Brisbane, opposite Central Station. The hostel itself is a very large highrise building with several floors of accommodation. The dorm rooms are spacious, and contain locker space for all of its tenants. Some rooms have a balcony, while others do not. The building is generally clean and well maintained, but this is constantly countered by high backpacker traffic.
The Downunder Bar is located on the basement floor of the building and is guaranteed to go off every night. Unfortunately, the sheer size of the Palace ensures that the atmosphere is pretty empty. The massive kitchen is where most of the activity takes place, and is your best bet to meet fellow travellers. The Downunder Bar also serves food, but with so many other nearby options, it really is a last resort.
Finally, due to its size, Palace Backpackers is not very flexible in terms of early check-ins or late check-outs. To mitigate this inconvenience, a large storage room is provided at no charge.
