Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

The room was basic but did the trick. It had a unique cute style that matched the feel of the building. Clearly you're encouraged to mingle with the other occupants which I really liked, as the social areas were great.

We stayed in the queen suite with our own bathroom for three nights. It was great for us as it has the social aspect of a hostel with a room like a hotel. Great pool. Great decks. Awesome location for people that don't want to be downtown. 15 minute walk to china town or 5 minute walk to plenty of...

I booked a bed in a 4 bed mixed dormitory. I have been welcomed by the employee Dee whom gave me a tour of the place and directed me to my room where 1 man was in ( only that man in the dormitory). On the evening the same man got completely over drunk and I start to see a...

Dear Sandrine, As previously discussed, I am extremely sorry this situation occurred during your stay at Bowen Terrace, as well very disappointed that the phone did not answer when you endeavoured to called. This is definitely most unusual as we have the phone diverted to our mobiles at all times. You are correct in saying I don't live onsite, however,...

I had a great stay here in Brisbane, its little less central situated but still a great area with supermarkets, bars and restaurants near by. The center is easily reachable with a short ferry ride, which is for free and by bus of course as well. Especially if you want to have a less busy accomodation/hostel this accomodation is a...

First of all, I would like to highlight the professionalism of the staff, who was really friendly and highly accommodating. This is the best part of this guest house. This is a proper guesthouse - not a hotel. And you will definitely feel the difference... There was no A/C in my room and I could not open the window, which...

I really liked my experience at Bowen Terrace Accommodation. I was in a dorm for a few days before leaving Brisbane. On the plus side, there is a nice pool, a quiet terrace, large common area with TV and DVDs made available, a fully equipped kitchen with enough space, a large fridge that will accommodate everyone's food, squeaky clean bathroom...

Good clean facilities and excellent location, friendly helpful staff, easy access but with good security. Handy to public transport and countless places to eat. Only problem has ever been noise from other rooms. In some rooms the thin walls means sleep can be interrupted by next door's talk, phone calls, activities or TV.

Hello there, Firstly, thank you for spending time with us at Bowen Terrace Accommodation. We really appreciate your booking. We agree that our Guest House is perfectly positioned with all the things a traveller requires such as good transport and lots of entertainment close by. Unfortunately, being an old Queenslander home, it does sometimes carry sounds. Please come back anytime....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bowen Terrace Accommodation provides affordable and friendly accommodation for travellers and visitors from all over the world. Family owned and operated, Bowen Terrace Accommodation will provide you with that "home away from home" feel in a welcoming and hospitable atmosphere. The style of the house is known as a 'Queenslander' and reflects unique Australian heritage. It features elevated structure with comfortable bedrooms off the long hallway, front and back veranda's, and traditional architecture that allows to experience a part of the typical Queensland lifestyle. When you're relaxing out on the back deck on a warm summer's evening, listening to the mangos drop from the tree onto the roof, you'll see just how laid-back this city can be. Yet you are just minutes from the city lights that illuminate the beautiful Brisbane skyline as well the vibrant Fortitude Valley entertainment area and a host of some of Brisbane's best cafes are along nearby Brunswick Street. ... more   less
