The staff is very helpful and kind. The room was comfortable, with enough space, aircon and a little shrink. Good free internet connection. All the common areas were very clean, the kitchen is fully equiped and coffe and tea are available. There's a TV room and some books and also some outdoors spaces to chill. Laundry and dryer cost 4AUD. Very comfortable place at a just 10m walk from central station.

I stayed at Kookaburra for roughly a week. There is nothing fancy about the inn, but it has everything you need, it's comfortable, and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. Depending on the other guests it can be a little loud at night, but it never actually bothered me or interfered with my sleep. The beds are comfortable, there is a sink in the room, and I never had to wait on the shower although that will depend on your own timing. There is a kitchen, dining room, TV room, laundry facilities, etc. on site that are all freely usable by occupants, and there is a grocery store, convenience store, and a number of restaurants all within a short walk from the inn. Don't stay here if you're looking for something pristine or fancy, but highly recommended if you're looking for an affordable and comfortable place to kick back for a few days.

everything about this place was good. everything was spotless. WiFi was insanely fast for a "hostel/inn". shower was powerful and bed was really comfy. dogs were really cute and owners were so friendly. relatively close to everything too. owner was also really friendly and helpful. probably the best place we've stayed in in Aus so far.

Kookaburra Inn is just as quiet, convenient and appealing today as it was years ago. It offers comfortable, clean, convenient accommodation where you can cook like a backpacker, sleep privately in air conditioning and breakfast outdoors. Central station, the city, Fortitude valley and a supermarket are all within walking distance and you can park on the street. The hosts are friendly and efficient and you feel like you are staying with family. Why pay three times the price for a stuffy room in a high-rise, when you can sample the Brisbane culture on a budget?
