    I wouldn't mind to spend more time in this hostel, but there weren't many things to do in town. It has a small gym, bar, pool, organized kitchen and plenty of space outdoors. The staff was very nice and helpful, easy to park on the street, each bed has an individual fan, the place is very clean and the wi-fi run great. The only con is that it doesn't have a locker in the room.

    This hostel is super clean and the backyard is one of the cooler chill spaces I have been in. I recommend staying in the summer cause there’s probably more people in Gladstone, I went in winter and the town was very quiet. Otherwise it’s a great little place to stay a few nights as you travel the coast! Staff are helpful and fun and the bar is really cool.

    Very friendly hostel with a great atmosphere and facilities. Some construction work being carried out but was welcome as the newly finished facilities looked great and worked well. Kitchen very modern and the whole place had a homely feel. Gladstone itself not very exciting but the hostel was great. Would have stayed longer if I had the time.

    Very nice hostel in which I stayed just one night. The only thing I didn't like was the lack of place where to put my backpack, and no lockers. Other than that, good choice.

    The hostel was great. Good vibes and it was really nice renovated. If only there was somebody at the reception. We couldn't check-out. And after a few calls, we got a "solution". It was promised, but we didn't get our deposit back.

    Possibly the worst night sleep in a hostel I’ve ever had. Room was baking hot so they have fans attached to the metal bunk beds. This makes the whole bunk bed vibrate and because the mattresses are sprung (you can feel each individual spring) every time you put your ear to the pillow there’s loud rumbling, making it almost impossible to sleep. Add to that the stench of smoke in the room and the ants and flies consuming the kitchen area, I would not recommend. Also breakfast was stale cereal
