Hostel in good location and quite chill even if it's in the middle of a town. Pool and harden. Big kitchen but too close to the rooms : the noise easily travels to the rooms and obviously people do drinking games at night.

This is a good option if you're staying in rockhampton. Close to Woolworth and not too far from the main street. Staff was nice but there was almost no guests there so not very sociable

A mediocre hostel, too pricey, and the location is far from ideal, 20 minute walk to the nearest supermarket. The beds are quite comfy and the kitchen is well equipped. It lacks atmosphere, and there was hardly any people there. The pool table is cool, but you can't use it after 8:30 pm which sucks. This place is good for stopping one night, breaking up the journey to airlie beach. But in hindsight I should've skipped rockhampton, there's nothing to do there.

Staff was helpful, beds were good, good place for a stopover! Plus free zoo and botanical gardens in rockhampton were nice. To bad the greyhound has terrible times.

Decent hostel for a night stopover before moving on. Not a great atmosphere as most travelers are passing through. Staff was very friendly with food recommendations.

The hostel itself is nice, however it's quite out of town so not much to do without getting the bus into town. Clean room and clean bathrooms. The kitchen was clean and well stocked. The hostel was very quiet, no mixing of people. It was fine for one night stay though.

Didn't expect much of neither the hostel nor Rockhampton but loved the hostel to my surprise. Spacious rooms, nice community and dining area, kitchen and a tv room. The hostel has an outdoor style to it but that's what I liked most. Free parking, free Wifi near the reception, free cutlery, plates, pans etc. which was a first for me after two months in OZ. Would definitely stay again, staff is very lovely and is always keen to help or give tips for what to do in Rocky
