The Perfect Party Place

Located directly opposite Central Station in the heart of Brisbane, Base Brisbane Central is legendary in the Australian backpacking industry. It's famous for its atmosphere, comfortable beds and great nights in the Down Under Bar. Often described 'The Party Palace', this heritage listed building has five floors of fantastic features and a generous mix of dorm, double and single rooms.

Have Fun!

The hostel experience starts with the staff. Our reception team is one of the best in Australia with many years of hostel and backpacking experience. They’ll be able to answer any questions you might have. If you want to know where to party they’ll point you down to the legendary Down Under Bar. This is one of Australia’s best known backpacker bars. Theme nights, dress ups and prizes, the DUB has it all! For a more relaxed night check out the Zibar for some wine and cocktails and some great food. After a big night out you’ll want to relax so head up to the rooftop patio to chill out and get some sun.


At Base Brisbane we pride ourselves on our cleanliness by having our very own clean team. This team has been with us for over seven years and know what it takes to provide you with a comfortable stay. All our dorms and bathrooms are cleaned each day and you’ll enjoy our fresh clean linen ready to go.


Plane, train or bus. No matter how you arrive into Brisbane, Base Central is the easiest hostel to get to in the city. Once you’re here, everything you want is right at your door step. Supermarkets, banks, malls, restaurants are all within a few blocks. If you’re hungry then all you have to do is head downstairs to the Zibar for some breakfast or hit the Down Under Bar for a $10 pint and meal deal.
