This is such great value for what you pay. While more in line with a hostel it is extremely clean and quite. The location is brilliant with a short 5-10 minute walk to the CBD or restaurants at the river side. The owners/managers are very friendly and will assist at a moments notice. It has shared bathroom facilities but if... More

The Kookaburra Inn is a minutes away from both the CBD and the Fortitude Valley, and a pleasant riverside boardwalk takes you to the Botanical Gardens in about 30 minutes by foot. The facilities are simple but complete, including good cooking areas and some quiet garden space. Christine is very friendly and helpful.

I stayed at the kookaburra inn while in Brisbane and really enjoyed it. The room and bathrooms were very clean. It's only a 10 minute walk to downtown and the river to catch the free ferry. The front and back patios are nice and a perfect place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. The only downside was the... More

This is a 'chilled' hostel for more mature travellers. I had my own room and it was clean and quiet, I had a fridge, the bed was comfy and they provided towels and sheets which were all clean and fresh. There was also a fan in the room which was a big welcome as it was very warm and muggy... More

After 26 hour flight, we grabbed a taxi from the airport straight to the inn. Checked in with a wonderfully polite lady called Wendy. She showed us to our room and rest of the complex; showers, dining room etc. After lovely work around Brisbane, which is roughly around 1 mile 20mins walk. We returned to the room. Popped on the...

I stayed 1 week with them. The front desk was very accommodating as I had an after hours arrival. They left a key out for me and we sorted check-in the next day. Room was clean. Shower had hot water. I found the iron and washing facilities helpful. A generally enjoyable stay.

We stayed at the Kookaburra for 3 nights. One night no sleep cause somebody was SNOARING! Staff was great, dogs also. Location perfect, bars, restaurants, Woolworths, fresh bakery etc. Late check out: Wendy gave us towels so we could shower, could also leave suitcases. Would go there again!
