I recently stayed at the Kookaburra Inn while I was on a four day course in Brisbane. It was the perfect location, just a short walk from the city. With a great kitchen facility and even a desk to study at in my room. It was quiet and clean, with a comfy bed, great value for money (being so close... More

Exactly as advertised, short walk from the city (a bit dodgy at night), clean room with a moderately comfy mattress. Friendly and helpful staff (we had to checkout early in the morning), so would certainly stay again!

Very clean and comfortable room with fridge, washbasin and fan. Good size modern shower room. Courtyards front and back. Handy location 15 mins walk to Central or Roma St. Lovely welcoming hosts including giant Alsation. Reasonably priced as well, so most definitely ticks all the boxes!

Stayed here for one night - was everything we needed and more. Excellent location, there was parking, aircon and free wifi. Was a bit dubious about the shared facilities but it was very quiet and the bathrooms were clean and not too busy. Room was basic but came with a fridge so we were happy, staff were lovely and helpful.... More

We stayed at the Kookaburra Inn for 5 days in December 2013 and would definitely recommended it. It’s in a great location as its only about 10-15 minutes’ walk to the main train station in Brisbane and from there you can easily walk to anywhere. Were welcomed by the lovely owner and her two happy dogs. She took the time... More
