What are the top Brisbane backpacker hostels?

  • Nomads Brisbane Hostel: Walk to Queen Street Mall, Roma Parklands, and more nearby attractions from this hostel in the CBD. Or, just hang out and socialise on the rooftop terrace, the nightclub, or the café. Don’t worry about staying out all night—there’s a 24-hour front desk to help you out at any time, and blackout curtains mean you can sleep as late as you want.
  • Brisbane Backpackers Resort: Not all hostels in Brisbane offer this many freebies: breakfast, WiFi, self-parking, and an area shuttle are all complimentary. There’s an outdoor pool, hot tub, tennis and basketball courts, and a game room, too. It’s also a 5-minute walk from hot spots like the markets, bakeries, and cafes.

What exactly is a hostel?

In a hostel, travellers typically book a single bed in a shared room, with anywhere from 4 to 12 bunks or more—though some hostels have private rooms available. Hostels focus on providing shared experiences at super-low prices, and most have common rooms like terraces, living rooms, and game rooms. The best hostels in Brisbane offer amenities like communal kitchens with stovetops, free WiFi and computer stations, and locations near public transit, which helps cut down on your costs even more.
