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.

We stayed here for one night. We arrived late, after 9:30pm when the reception was already closed. But we let the owner, very friendly Wendy, know, so everything was arranged for us to stay the night and we felt very welcome. The room was clean and we even had a sink and a fridge. The shared bathroom and toilets were... More

Kookaburra Inn was a great base for Brisbane. Location is good, close to shopping and sights. Wendy was a pleasure, very friendly and helpful. The inn is neat and tidy, and well appointed. Loved having our own fridge and the unlimited Wi-Fi. We enjoyed watching the possums right outside! Highly recommended, and would stay again.

Very cozy guesthouse not to far from the city center. It felt as a second home right after the first minute we walked in. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a double room with a shared bathroom. Not to big, but clean and very comfortable with a shared bathroom and kitchen right outside our door. Coffee and... More

Very friendly hosts, nice details like the kitchen with tea and coffee, and calling my airport shuttle when it was late. The weather was a lot warmer than I am used to but the fan in my room and a cool breeze through the window meant I didn't have trouble sleeping.

Kookaburra inn is a great place to stay. It's clean, quiet, comfortable, 5 min walk to the city, stores, and shops. I've spent there 10 days and and I really enjoyed my stay. Chris and Wendy, the managers, are very social and helpful. I would strongly raccomend this place.

This place is well located. Walk distance to the city centre and close to a supermarket. The room was comfortable and clean. We had a sink in the room that makes things easier when you shared the bathroom and it is very handy. The shared bathroom was clean and big. No shower get or anything like it. They have two... More
