A really nice hostel with great atmosphere. The staff was welcoming and helpful, and the rooms and facilities are in good condition. The hostel is located a little bit away from the city center, ferry and the beach, but Townsville is small so they are well within walking distance. It also means the surroundings are a bit more quiet on the weekends, which is nice if you would rather prefer to chill rahter than go out.

Lovely cute hostel, with amazing helpful staff. Really worth staying in Townsville for short quiet period. Lovely chilled out vibes - small- perfect size. Kitchen is clean and lovely, wifi is perfect and can access from common room or double rooms. We arrived and were upgraded to a double room for free as they were available, obviously we were very lucky but shows the welcoming and kind staff! Location is a bit out the way but walkable. Free shutttles to and from ferry (magnetic island!)thankyou

The place was very quiet which was good after so many crowded places. Hostel has a good location and it is good value for money. I really liked the fact that they had quiet time from 10pm to 8 am so you could get a good night sleep. T

Firstly, the pick up from the bus was just perfect. The owner was waiting for us already and was extremely welcoming. Short trip to the hostel. Wifi works amazingly!!!!!!! (Although in the common area only) Free coffee, tea and all kitchen equipment. Great staff. Short walk to town and Supermarket. Owner dropped us back into town to get our next bus. Rooms are just what you need. Air con available if too warm. Thank you to Z and her team.

Little far from the bus station. Only pick up greyhound but not premier so had to walk which was fine but not super convenient. Rooms are alright. Kitchen a little outdated. Lots of rusty pots. Good hostel for $ spend. Easy to get to Castle Hill which is nice

I loved the hostel! Stayed there 3 nights before going to Magnetic Island and 3 nights after. Hostel is really clean and comfy, and the staff is great! Beds and showers are good and kitchen is good, its nice to cook in there. Not a partyhostel, you can just chill and sleep well or sit on the courtyard and have some drinks with the other guests, someone always seems to have a gitar ;) I definitely would recommend this hostel. And do the Castle Hill walk by the goat track, the view is amazing!

Brilliant!! 3 of us arrived, English, Finnish & French Canadian; booked 3 nights, ended up staying just over a week! Will be going back when in Townsville again. Room was perfect with en-suite & value for money was incredible! Shuttle bus service with the friendly staff just made the place! Stay here if you're visiting Townsville! 👌🏻👌🏻

Lovely hostel ran by a lovely owner. Staff are really nice and the whole hostel has a very relaxed vibe. Kitchen is reallllly good and clean with the use of a huge oven which is something you'll appreciate after months of travelling. Highly recommended hostel in a lovely location.

Really nice hostel and helpful staff. Very far away from greyhound bus terminal and ferry terminal which is annoying and they do a minibus to and from the ferry terminal but only twice a day which really restricts you. Really nice place though very clean nice staff and good facilities. Just not a great location.

Excellent! Staff are so friendly and welcoming. Even took us to the shops on easter sunday to get some food when everywhere else was closed. We were orientated around the place and shown all of the great facilities including free wifi, spaceous kitchen & chill out areas. Our double room was big and very clean. Free shuttles to and from the greyhound bus stand & ferry terminal. Would deffinately recommend.
