At Summer House Backpackers Brisbane, we're proud of our reputation as one of Australia's best budget hostels. With our funky décor and fun events, we like to make you feel at home. Take a beer from our bar – up to our rooftop terrace. Bask on a lounger surrounded by views over the city and river, and stick around for our evening socials. We'll keep you well fed, with our free pancake Sundays, cheese and cracker nights and Italian nights – and well entertained (don't miss our free boat cruises along the Brisbane River). Grab a continental breakfast every morning – that's free too – naturally!


We're a block away from the Brisbane River waterfront and 7 minutes' walk from the Roma Street Station. This is where the train from the airport, the BDVL, will drop you off – the journey takes about 45 minutes, door to door. There are plenty of cool places to grab a drink just 5 minutes' walk away, with bars like Lefty's Old Time Music Hall, Brewski Bar and Libertine Restaurant a short stroll from the hostel.

Rooms and Dorms

Whether you prefer to keep it cosy or bunk up with new friends, we have mixed dorms of all shapes and sizes. All of our rooms have fresh linen, air con – a must during our hot Aussie summers – and there are power points beside every bed. Bring along a padlock to use your locker, or pick one up from reception.

Extras and activities

Our super fast Wi-Fi is free, so you can stay on top of the shows you're hooked on (help yourself to free and tea and coffee). If you have time for TV, that is – we have heaps of free events to keep you busy. Head to the rooftop for our legendary barbecue dinners, and down to street level for our free walking tours if you need a newbie's introduction to our amazing city.

    Convenient location, decent free breakfast as well. Beds and pillows are comfortable, bathroom was visibly cleaned every morning. Downsides: the bathrooms are on the first floor only, so if your room is on the second floor, you have to walk downstairs to use the facilities. They had free cheese and cracker night on Monday which was a super nice feature to have!

    Staff were really friendly and welcoming. I only stayed here for one night and got upgraded. Its a little walk from the centre but right next to greyhound bus stop (5 min walk!) which was ideal for me as I had an early bus the next morning! Didn't really get involved in the social activities but people seemed to be smiley and happy in the common areas!

    I only stayed for one night ... And did not spend much time at the Hostel, but overall all good - facilities are fine, stuff was nice ... The time I was there it was not very easy to get to know people, as I said I only spend one night in the Hostel & not much time actually being there ... but I felt like there could have been a bit more common chill-out space.

    Hostel was fine. Not particularly social and felt a little crowded at times but good for a few days. Washrooms could be cleaner and be updated. Carpets in bedroom which I personally dislike as they can't usually be cleaned well. Easy walk to the CBD and transit.

    One of the worst hostel I stayed. To start with good things, staff is superb and they do have free wifi everywhere in the hostel. Rooms are the smallest I ever experienced. I stayed in a 6 dorm and there was no place to put your backpack/suitcase, nevertheless they do have big lockers. Bathrooms are more than outdated and have black mould all over the shower cabin and curtain. Only dining area is at reception and really small. Kitchen is old and looks more like a construction site. Location ok.
