Free Wifi was a plus

Room was a prefab so a bit chilly but clean and secure. Free bus collection and drop off a massive plus, plenty of food options in the area.

The staff were generally helpful though the lady was a bit grumpy. I enjoyed my stay thought noticed all the windows were badly in need of cleaning with dirt & bird droppings covering them. The kitchen was clean but a bit lacking in cleaning up stuff for the hostelers. It's a beautiful hostel that needs a good clean up to make it just great.

Kitchen and bedrooms were clean and staff were regularly present cleaning the kitchen. The tv room / common room not clean, dust and cobwebs all around the tv. Staff mixed experience, pick up rude and didn't set the right tone. Reception was indifferent and it felt like me asking questions was an issue. Buses in rockhampton finish early, so long walk back to the hostel. Pool area looked unkept. It is a shame as it could be so much better, I would advise that they work with local attractions more

Pick up and drop off to greyhound was great, clean rooms and shower block. Not far from shopping mall. Perfect place to stop to break up long greyhound journey.

Great kitchen. Great rooms. Loved having a locker in our rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Pickup at the Greyhound bus stop is a life saver. Internet connection is woeful and completely useless. Please consider upgrading to another Internet Service Provider. The wireless signal is strong, its the internet connection that is just inexcusably poor. Its 2014 not 1997. Very clean. Its a quiet hostel, not much partying. Great facilities.

The dorm was clean and cozy. The location was pretty central and staff were friendly and easy going. A nice relaxed environment after my time at Airlie beach.

Terrible hostel! Would not recommend anyone to stay here. Reception area is run down and unorganised, staff were not polite or friendly. The rooms were plain and a bit dirty. The girls dormitory was located next to the mens toilet, you could hear everything - disgusting! Location isn't the most convenient, bathrooms were OK. Glad I was only there to sleep before leaving very early the next morning. Only positive is that I was glad my car wasn't broken into, as the area and some guests are rough!
