We felt like home in this hostel. We stayed there with the van and we really liked the residential area. It was clean and cosy. The bathrooms were also clean. Anna was really nice and helpfull for us. The location is very good, near to the center of the city. You can go with a free ferry!

Room: Clean and had bedding all ready Location: Fantastic location, very close to the ferry so I could get around Brisbane without having to pay a cent! Amenities: Free Wifi which is always a plus and a nice outdoor and decking area. The kitchen was very clean too.

Bowen is the best Dorm-style accommodation I've stayed in. Easily up to the standard of YHA, and with many advantages. Bowen is on a quiet side-street, just off one of the main suburbs of Brisbane. Bus services are awesome, and the nearby Death Before Decaf prepares the best coffee found so far in Australia (sorry Melbourne). Bowen's kitchen is not...

Pretty relaxed atmosphere. Comfortable bed in a single room. Nice old house. Not much traffic at night. Clean. Chairs outside to lounge on on a hot summer's afternoon. Very close to the city. Public buses outside. But thin walls. Overall clean and friendly. Thank you Maria.

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
