While the pool area was beautiful, this accomodation is lacking the amenities to make it truly backpacker friendly. $5 for laundry with no area for air drying, and a cramped dirty kitchen and no eating area made my stay at what looked like a fantastic hostel less than ideal. More

This is by far, the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. With the rooftop pool and bar, the feeling is more of a nice hotel. Great vibe, good rooms. Wish I could have stayed longer! More

The Civic Guest House is one of the best hostels I have stayed in so far during my visit to Australia. I stayed in a 4 bed room. it included a full size refrigerator/freezer, lockable storage, and an ENSUITE bathroom! I have never stayed in a 4 bed room that included all of these things. More

Fantastic place. Friendly staff that went beyond. Clean rooms, bathroom and common areas. AC! Chilled atmosphere. Walking distance to Woolworths and ferry and Greyhound, although they offer free bus shuttles. Thanks for a great stay. More

Loved our stay for 1 night at reef. Would have been longer if we weren't passing through Townsville as it's been the best hostel so far. Very clean rooms and communal areas (especially the kitchen!). Little touches like the tv's in rooms, free drinking water fountain and ovens in the More

Do not stay here. It's like turning up to a block of dodgy council flats. Despite their website saying that they had a 24 hour reception when we arrived at 1am after the greyhound bus dropped us off in Townsville there was no one there and no key left. We had tried to call them earlier in More
