base hostel brisbane - communal loungeDirectly opposite the Transit Centre is Brisbane's answer to funky, hi-tech backpacker accommodation. You can literally step off the train or bus, walk over a sky link to ditch your bags and then get straight into exploring the city. Budget travellers can choose from a great range of dorms, twins, or king-size motel suites, all fully ensuited and air-conditioned. Our Brisbane Backpackers is raising the standard of budget accommodation to a new level of quality. It's not just the friendly service, but also the things that you don't see like our acoustic and sound insulation, which surpasses many of the city's five star hotels, and with beds from $27 you can't go past Base Backpackers Brisbane (Uptown) for everything a backpacker in Brisbane needs & much, much more... Ahh! With such luxury, you will want to extend your stay!
