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.

The hostel was very nice so stay in, it was very clean and spacious in the room, we also found the fridge in the room very useful. The shared bathroom was always clean as was the kitchen, would stay 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

Walking distance to the city centre, but in a secluded side street so it was very peaceful, I had a very relaxing sleep. Also there is a Woolworths, Subway and Bakery just around the corner which was very convenient. Bathroom seemed new and clean, so overall I highly recommend this place.

Very good place 20min from the city center by foot. The room is correct (right size, with all the facilities: fridge, desk, shelves, fan, sink) I would just say that for a tall person (I'm 1m75), the bed was just just....my toes were touching the end. The owner is very accommodating, I came late at night and everything was ready... More

The Location is very good as it is right next to CBD, but still very quiet. It has very comfortable rooms with fan as well as well equiped kitchens and bathrooms. The owners are very friendly and I enjoyed my time there.
