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.

I was unfamiliar with Brisbane, so being able to find somewhere close to the river and downtown was very important, and very helpful The place is small-ish, clean (room and bathrooms), with good shared spaces

We stayed here for two nights in 01/2016. There's not much to say. The owner is very friendly and polite, the rooms and bathrooms are very clean, but aged. They could get a refurbishment. Two small kitchen, just one stove and therefore just 4 out of 5 stars. Nevertheless we enjoyed our stay and could relax well. All rooms are... More

Great location. Very close to city and valley. We felt it was great value for money given the price vs the facility and would recommend this place to other. In fact next time we stay in the city I will look up the Kookaburra Inn first for accommodation. The staff we friendly also

We booked one double room for 1 night. The room comes with a small fridge, a small sink, a fan and towels. It is well organized and I wish all the hostels I have been were so nice. Bathroom and toilet were clean and just close by. There is a laundry area. The kitchen is cosy. You feel at home.... More

Staying at Kookaburra Inn is like staying with your long lost aunt, who still lives in a wonderful, little traditional inner city house in Brisbane. Your room is not like an expensive hotel, but it has little conveniences to make it easy (like places to hang clothes and towels or sit in the afternoon breeze). It's well set up for... More
