Bunk Brisbane

Fortitude Valley, Brisbane

The hostel offers private rooms with an ensuite, or shared dormitory rooms. All rooms feature free, unlimited WiFi. In line with the QLD government mandate, given that we have a bar and nightclub as part of our complex, from 17th December 2021 OR when QLD reaches 80% double vaccinated, all guests will be required to show proof of being double vaccinated. Failure to provide this evidence may result in you being unable to stay but still being charged as per our cancellation policy. Location for me was perfect. The room was comfortable and clean and had a good nights rest and the staff were helpful. Just feel that I wish I had found this one on some of my other stays.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world. <br><br> Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
