Only stayed one night but it seemed like a cool place. Really nice staff helped us check in. In the dorms the bottom bunk is kind of a small space though-can't really sit up in it. But overall it's worth it!

The beds are without ladders. There are not enough showers and toilets. The few that there are are not perfectly clean. The kitchen was okay and there are free games. The free shuttle to the bus is nice, but I had to call them...

The hostel was clean and quiet, staff friendly and they offer free wifi. Small downside there was no TV room but the owners (who were new as they had just bought the guesthouse) said they would have one in place in the future.

Everything in this hostel is perfectly clean. It was the cleanliest hostel we stayed in on our Round the World Trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the kitchen is well equipped but a little too small if there are more than 5 people cooking at the same time. We would stay there again.

Very pleasant and professional staff. Clean, quiet rooms. Nice big kitchen, stocked with plenty of amenities. Laundry rooms was good as well. It's a slight walk from the center of downtown (2 or 3 big city blocks) but really not far.

Ann and her staff operate a very upscale hostel. Extremely clean rooms, common lounge areas, kitchen, outdoor areas and streetscape. I liked the location; close to movies, bars, bakery, restaurants, only 10 minute walk to museum, 15 to bus depot. We spent a very enjoyable 2 days in Townsville, and highly recommend Civic Guest House.
