Extremely suitable for me (as a student) to stay here when I have to attend workshops. I never think of finding somewhere else to stay. Wendy and Chris are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are very clean and I find the place quiet. Highly recommend for those on a budget who want to be close to the city.

Coming to Brisbane for a workshop and as a single traveller, I was looking for something economical as well as clean and comfortable. The Kookaburra Inn, located in a somewhat residential area on a quiet street more than met my expectations. From the moment I arrived the friendliness of the hosts was evident. They were so helpful and welcoming, answering...

The hostel is lovely, with a nice size single room with own fridge and sink. The room was very clean, with fresh sheets and towels each week. The wi-fi was fast, the shared kitchen and living areas clean and well stocked. The location is great with central Brisbane in easy walking distance and a large supermarket within a few minutes...

A chilled backpacker place, surprisingly clean with a homely kitchen. Bathroom facilities are minimal which could lead to issues when busy. Intelligent and approachable hostess. Quiet location, though this entire little street is full of holiday accommodation, giving it a fun air

This hostel gets everything right. The people are very friendly and helpful, the rooms just nice and clean, and so are the central area's like the showers, toilets and kitchen.

Located on a quiet side street within walking distance to the tourist spots of CBD and the nightlife of Fortitude Valley, this is the quietest hostel I ever stayed at, very clean and with friendly and accommodating staff. The internet access is included and both speed and coverage is great, which is not always the case in Australia.
