Wouldn't really call it a backpackers hostel, it's more of an old motel where they have people staying long term. Staff were mainly very friendly, although the older lady was quite rude and didnt seem too interested in the backpackers. Facilities are all fine though so it's alright for a one night stay before or after Magnetic Island.

It was a great place to stay and staff welcoming. It was great to have clean facilities in shared bathroom. I liked the human touch of a light breakfast available next day. I would go again. Meg

Great hostel. Loved the layout. Room was tidy and beds were clean! Each room had its own fridge but no lockers. Huge kitchen and plenty of equipment! Really helpful and friendly staff and Townsville itself is beautiful! Definitely visiting again!!

Hi , we are very Sorry for the cold showers, unfortunately our hot water system died and were waiting for a part to arrive and had to rely solely on the Solar. If you are ever in the area again, give us a call and we will be sure to give you a discount on your next stay! Kind Regards The team @ Adventurers

The pool is awesome. Just don't go there hungry because there's a restaurant below it... ;) Rooms were ok, it was quiet at night, close to the ferry. Kitchen smelled really really weird, like a stable almost. No idea why. oO Also, top grades for having Vanilla Coke in a vending machine!

Thank you, for your lovely comments, not too sure why the kitchen smelt either as it is cleaned everyday, but we definitely will look into it! Hope you enjoyed your stay!

Decent place to stay. as soon as we arrived the staff pointed out a free sailing trip which we absolutely loved! breakfast is alright, but the gym is not realy a gym

Owner Comment (Hide)
So glad you enjoyed the sailing trip! Yes it is only a light gym, so people can have a bit of a workout on the commercial treadmill and with hand weights for when it is too hot to be outside in the Townsville heat. It is a new addition to adventurers so it will grow in time. Thanks for staying with us!

Very nice staff, clean facilities. One of the rare large hostels that can maintain a social layout. You won't regret staying here!

Very friendly staff, they were very accommodating of my inconvenient travel schedule. Normally I don't like large hostels, but I really liked Adventurers. The large layout didn't detract from socializing. I would stay here again quite happily.

The rooms were very warm despite aircon and very dodgy fan. The place seemed a tad seedy and there was not much an atmosphere. Poor location.
