“Great Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

We stayed here for two nights, wanting cheaper place in Brisbane. The room was big enough with our own sink and a/c. The shared bathroom/kitchen were clean and we practically had both to ourselves. The owners were very friendly and the place had a great feel to it.
The free internet was a definite bonus for us and was within waking distance to CBD and even closer was a small strip with supermarket, subway, bakery etc...

Nice little hostel on a quiet street about ten minutes walk from central Brisbane. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. The room was nice - a private double on the first floor with AC and a fridge. Free wifi and decent kitchen facilities. All in all a refreshing change from more commercial and frenetic Backpackers haunts.

If looking for a private room in Brisbane, this is great cheap value option. Service is always friendly and not too far from all the main attractions in Brisbane.

Kookaburra Inn was exactly what we were hoping for. A nicely maintained quiet place in a fairly central location. No fuzz about arriving a bit later than expected. The key was waiting at the office door with a friendly note. This was very much appreciated, even though we still met the friendly managers. A comfy bed, towels, fridge and a sink in the room added to our satisfaction. Thanks!
