Some language schools and Universities providing homestay services set a weekly fee and make all arrangements directly with the host families on behalf of the homestay seeker.  However when you are looking for a private homestay in Brisbane the weekly fee may be higher or lower depending on:

  • how close the homestay is to the University or Language School 
  • the quality of the rooms and
  • the experience of the host family.  

At HomeStay Brisbane, we have the experience of hosting several international students since 2008, from 5 weeks to 18 months.  Most of these students have been placed with us through the University of Queensland, St Lucia, Homestay Program.  In addition we have taken other homestay students who have contacted us directly and made their own arrangements.  These homestay guests have stayed with us from 6 months to 18 months.

Homestay Brisbane guests can expect:

  • rooms that are clean and fresh
  • comfortable beds
  • quality bed sheets and towels
  • desk and table lamp
  • clean and modern bathroom.

However before choosing your homestay in Brisbane, you should ask about the cost of transport from the homestay to the University of Langauage School.  Depending on the suburb transport can be expensive and take up to an hour or more to arrive at the university or school. To find out more about transport costs please follow this link,  Homestay in Brisbane transport info link
