Great location and staff were very friendly and accommodating for our late check in. Will definitely stay here again next time we're in Brisbane.


We stayed here twice, for one night in July on our way north to Cairns and then for 4 nights on our return through to Sydney. We stayed in a double room at the back of the property that looked out onto a sheltered patio. It had a fridge, excellent wifi and very comfortable bed. There were very clean showers, toilets and a kitchen very close by. Wendy and staff were very friendly and helpful and we completely enjoyed our stay. If you want clean, secure, friendly accommodation book here!


Great little cosy place, ideal for couples. Good alternative to a hotel.


Brilliantly friendly, clean, tidy, organised hostel. Planning to stay again on our return back south to Sydney it was that good. Only down sides were a very small kitchen with limited utensils (although this was sufficient for us during our short stay as there did not appear to be too many other people staying there) as well as there being only one shower (we think) on the ground floor between (possibly) 8 double/twin rooms. Otherwise highly recommended!


Very nice place in a very pleasant Australian city. We really liked the owners and the peaceful atmosphere. Rooms were clean and simple, all we needed for the price we paid.


I had a pleasant short stay at the Kookaburra. The room was clean and I considered it great value for money. I'll be sure to check in again next time I am in town. Thanks guys!
