If you’re a guest house nut, Aussie Way Backpackers is arguably the pick of the city’s many lodges. You’ll excuse the ropey name once you lay eyes on this charming property set in an old heritage-listed Queenslander terrace. It’s slightly removed from the city, but all the better to sift out the hoi polloi and attract a slightly quieter and more mature traveller.
If the 15 minute walk to the city is too much, Caxton Street, the Barracks precinct and Paddington are nearby, all boasting a heap of food and beverage options. Besides, on Cricket Street in the inner suburb of Petrie Terrace and surrounded by ancient metal-roofed workers’ cottages, this is about as old-school Brisbane as you can get. The air conditioned rooms come in singles, doubles and twins, and the dorm rooms are thankfully limited to just four beds. A superior backpacking experience.
