Bluetongue backpackers Brisbane is pleased to announce we now offer air-conditioned Queen, Double, Twin Rooms and self-contained one bedroom apartment for budget conscious travellers in Brisbane. Dorm rooms sleep 4 persons or 6 persons and cheapest backpacker rates start at $20 per night. Wow, that is budget backpacking Brisbane right there. Take a sneak peek at our backpackers as it has by far the best VIBE in Brisbane for travellers. Whether you need to have your own privacy or you want to meet new travellers and make friends or even better get a job in Brisbane while you are on your working visa… Look no further. Blue Tongue is like a big friendly share house but even better ! So if you are travelling around Australia, backpacking in Byron Bay, Hitching a ride from Cairns or Surfers paradise with your backpack fully loaded then you will love the feel of our Budget Backpackers Brisbane Accommodation.

We are conveniently located in the heart of Fortitude Valley Brisbane, but with out all the loud ‘doof doof’ that you might get if you are above a bar or hotel. We are just two blocks (two mins walk) from Fortitude Valley Mall where all the parties are and we have a great backyard chill out zone if you just want to hang at home!

Still don’t believe us ? Then here are some of our reviews we found online, we promise these are legit and taken straight from the backpacker and traveller review sites and our own facebook pages.

Liza O : Stayed in this hostel and didn’t wanted to leave because it just feels like family. Lot’s of french, german and in general european people but everyone is nice and friendly =) If your open minded and easy going that’s the perfect place for you. Was also working during my stay and had no problems falling asleep =)
Karen:  Spent nearly 3 months here and wish I could have stayed longer. Lucille is just amazing and the friends I’ve made here I know I’ve made for life. Everyone’s welcoming, no matter if they’re long termers or just around for a night or so.
It’s clean, safe and in a really good spot in New Farm.
If I’m ever back in Brisbane, this will be where I’ll stay.

Valentine : After 4 months in the bluetongue backpacker I’m sad to leave them!! Best place !!

 Albin : I spent 6 months there while working. Best hostel in Brisbane if you’re looking for a chill and friendly environment. Like a home away from home 

Nicole : Stayed in a dorm travelling and working in Brisbane for about 4 weeks. Was like a big family and just enough blocks away from the nightlife that you could sleep and night.

Shelly : This is a cheap place to stay in Fortitude Valley we moved out of another local backpackers that was just too noisy int he nightclub area and found Bluetongue to be cheaper and better. Plus free wifi! Parked our car up as well for free which was good.
Lisa : Nice people. Like family

We like that one best… nice people. like family.
