A guide to cheap Brisbane accommodation

The Australian city of Brisbane has plenty of accommodation options for the budget-conscious traveller. This article provides a guide to finding cost-effective lodgings across the city whether you are looking for hotels, apartments, hostels or caravan and camping options.

Hotels and motels

Whether you're looking for accommodation in the CBD, Southbank, Fortitude Valley or in any other area of Brisbane, there are a multitude of cheap hotels and motels to choose from.
Cheaperthanhotels.com.au Cheaperthanhotels.com.au is a great place to start in order to find cheap Brisbane accommodation. This site provides discounted rates on many hotels in Brisbane from the luxury Hilton to cheaper motel chains such as Holiday Inn. Great deals can also be found on last minute booking websites such as Wotif.com, Laterooms.com or Quickbeds.com. These sites offer a range of hotel and apartment accommodation at heavily discounted rates.

Apartments

A self-contained apartment is often a great way to save money as the kitchen allows you to cook meals cheaply rather than eating out every night. Apartments also provide more space and privacy than typical hotel rooms and are great for families or large groups. Try Aussieapartments.com.au for great deals on serviced apartments in Brisbane. However, most apartments have a minimum stay and are best suited to trips of a week or more.

Hostels and backpackers

Hostels and backpacker accommodations are another great way to find cheap lodgings. Brisbane, like all of Australia, has a great backpacker culture and there are plenty of hostels to choose from. Hostels.com provides listings of all backpacker accommodation across the city while popular venues such as Bunkbrisbane.com.au and Brisbanebackpackers.com.au have sites all of their own. Most hostels offer dorm beds from as little as AUD $20 per night or less and also offer private single and double rooms.

Camping and caravans

If you are on a caravanning or driving holiday, you can still pitch your tent in Brisbane city. Many suburbs including Eight Mile Plains and Ashgrove provide camping facilities on the doorstep of the CBD while more rural campgrounds can be found at nearby locations such as Scarborough Village and Clontarf. Most campgrounds provide powered and unpowered sites, onsite vans and self-contained cabins. For a comprehensive list of campgrounds in the Brisbane region, visit Totaltravel.yahoo.com.
