I was doing a hop to a few countries on my way to the UK solo and Wendy and her husband were fantastic, helpful in whatever way possible...from before arrival letting me know options of ways to get there as arrival was late, too many to list she's a wee gem, sets the atmosphere, to waving me off on departure....

Stayed in a double room with my best friend. It was small and clean with enough places to put your things. It was very quiet - we knew there were other guests, but rarely saw them. I assume we were sharing a bathroom with around five other guests, but we never had to wait around. We are animal people, so... More

The room was decent enough, and there was good wifi connection, but the smell was horrible! I can still smell dog everywhere, it was really really disgusting. I did not feel like sleeping there! I would not recomend this!

Good location, within walking distance or city and rail stations, if you enjoy walking. Basic but pleasantly clean premises. Bedroom was clean and came equiped with a fridge which was useful. The manageress, Wendy, was helpful and welcoming. I would definitely stay at the Kookaburra again

Enjoyed our time here. The hosts were so nice and the room was simple but all we needed. I thought the environment was very tranquil and relaxing, while close to all the big city sights and neighborhoods. I would definitely stay here again.

Had a nice short stay at the Kookaburra. It was very pleasant, the room was clean and it had everything a solo traveller needed. They catered for me arriving late which was helpful. I'll be sure to stay again next time I'm in town.

I enjoyed my 3 night stay at the hostel, its just the right size that its not over populated with great facilities. Wendy was an absolute gem, she was always on hand to help, was very friendly and offered some great tips on places to.visit. The place is very clean, we were given fresh towels and free tea and coffee... More

So glad we picked the Kookaburra Inn. Wendy is such a lovely person; always willing to help you if she can. I've seldom felt so comfortable at a guest house. The location is great; everything is walkable and Spring Hill is safe and quiet. Would have loved to stay longer. Great value for the money!

I've stayed at the Kookaburra Inn quite a number of times over the years when visiting family and friends in Brisbane and would strongly recommend it for the budget-conscious traveller. Very reasonable cost and very convenient to both the city and Fortitude Valley. Owners very friendly and helpful. Also liked that I was recently able to request a later checkout... More
