Newbie needs WHV guidance on hostels/work in brisbane please!

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm 25, over on a WHV.

currently staying with family in QLD, but plan on going brisbane in the next couple of weeks.

was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of the best hostels, and how easy/quickly ill be able to pick up work, baring in mind I currently don't have a car, but am willing to do almost anything (legal) for work!

Any advice for a newbie traveller welcome, thanks

Hi Lewis

I stayed at Valley Verandas hostel in Brisbane - and I wouldn't again tbh. It was a bit of a dump (although, met some great people and that's what really counts for me) it depends what your 'filfth' threshold is!! haha. I also stayed at the YHA there nearer to the centre which was better (always have a standard they do - you can pretty much bank on them being ok!). Don't know what type of work you're after, I did admin jobs and always got one withing a few weeks of using agencies (Hays, Gel group) - might as well give them a ring see what they can do for you. Friends got jobs just by asking at bars and restaurants - and word of mouth! Happy travels - ENJOY!!

I stayed at Aussie Way Backpackers, great little hostel, not a party hostel, feels like a big family there. Jobs.... you might struggle, do you have any experience in anything? I found a job easy, but have known loads of people to go months without a job in Brissy. Lovely city, but it's a bit hard for some backpackers!

I'll check that one out, cheers. Mechanic by trade but fancy a change! Have a bit of casual bar experience, gonna get my RSA sorted.
