Directly opposite the Roma Street Transit Centre (Greyhound and premier bus station) is Brisbane's hi-tech backpacker accommodation, Base Uptown. You can literally step off the train or bus, walk across the road drop your bags and then get straight into exploring the city!

We offer all our guests free pasta and rice 7 days a week, anytime you like, free activities every day, so you will never be bored, breakfast specials for guests and 20% of everything in the bar for guests aswell.Wireless internet is only $4 for 24 hours or $12 for one week!

We run the below activities every week:
Monday - Movie night @ Base Embassy. Free popcorn!
Tuesday - Walking tour at 2pm!
Wednesday - The famous base bar crawl and trivia night - starting at 6pm. Not to be missed!
Thursday - Lagoon and games at beautiful Southbank Parklands @ 3pm
Friday - Games night @ Base Central at 6pm
Saturday - Hungover movie day @ Base Central at 2pm
Sunday - The Sunday Family BBQ @ Southbank at 2pm!

We are right on the edge of the massive 20 acre Roma Street Parklands. If they reckon that these are the lungs of the city, then you must be in the heart of it - and the guts of the CBD are right on your doorstep!

The river is only a block away, which means it's easy to jump a ferry (after all Brisbane is known as The River City), or walk across to the other side. Nearby West End is a hangout for galleries, museums and other alternative lifestyles.

You'll notice that safety and security are one of our big priorities - that's why we've installed a state-of-the-art fire safety system, as well as 24-hour guest access via security swipe cards into the building and all of the rooms.

The five colour-coded floors have a fresh and vibrant decor, with an array of facilities that ensure relaxed home-style comfort. A fully equipped self-catering kitchen adjoins the recreation room, complete with comfy lounges, board games and an adjacent coin-operated laundry for the domestically inclined.

The attached restaurant/bar the Guilty Rogue serves up great breakfast specials and is open for snacks, lunch and dinner. All guests get 20% off any purchase.The bar attracts a great mix of Brisvegas locals along with the international jet set. It goes off with groovy dance nights, weekly live music, sports events and music videos on the big-screens.

Budget travelers can choose from a great range of dorms, twins, or king-size hotel suites, all fully ensuited and air-conditioned.

Prices are per person per night.
