About this listing
Spacious studio in walking distance to Southbank, Brisbane City, Brisbane's Cultural Centre, and West End.
The studio is a large open plan room, suitable for a single person, couple or family. There is a double bed, fold out bed, dining room table and chairs, and plenty of storage space. You have your own bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. The studio is open plan living with and includes a flat screen television.
Wireless internet is provided for free.
You enter the property up a flight of stairs and straight into the studio. Your hosts live above the studio. Although we have some insulation between our floor and the ceiling, it is not sound proof. We also are next to a train track and Southbank Train station is a 5 minute walk away. Most people have been fine with the noise and we supply ear plugs for those who are more sensitive. The location, space and value are often considered worth the booking.
Linen and Bedding provided.
Laundry is also available at a $15.00 cost per large load, washed and laundered for you.

The studio was clean, spacious and had everything you could need. I had a comfortable night's stay, making use of the supplied earplugs. Good location for walking to the South Bank train station and South Bank waterfront.
Thanks Desi, your studio was warm, comfortable, private, easy access, had all that I needed & close to everywhere I needed to go, at a great price.
The room was tidy and clean which was exactly as the pictures. The host was nice and to our surprise even provided bread for us. Overall I recommend this place!
Pleasant stay for 8 days with my family, left early due to flight. Great host with Internet, printing service and kitchen equipment things provided. Truly family friendly in quiet neighborhood. Great location with walking distance to bus and train station and also got a parking solution when I rented a car. And mostly not too expensive, definitely worth every penny.
Desi's place was lovely! it had everything I needed and was close enough to south bank etc that getting around was easy. Would definitely recommend :)
Easy to find and access. Comfortable stay for one night, though making the use of earplugs may be necessary for some due to upstairs noise. Easy walk to south bank, though at 20mins, slightly more than we wanted. Overall a good place to stay in Brisbane for the budget conscious
