We stayed in a little hut - ex Olympics accommodation. This was fairly clean and a nice size. The room fridge was very dirty, covered in mold and grubby inside and out. It completely froze solid our food. The communal kitchen was absolutely filthy. There were plenty of young German backpackers happily cooking in it. If you opened any cupboard,...

Rockhampton is a small town, and if you are arriving late you have to take a taxi to the hostel. The website tells you that the hostel has a shuttle bus to the train and busstation, but it runs only two times a day. So not untill 8 pm. The service at the hostel isn't really good. The hostel it...

Stayed here in April on two separate occasions. The rooms and bunk beds are not to bad. Bathrooms however, bugs everywhere. Kitchen not clean. One staff member was horribly rude, the other very accommodating and friendly. Al in all, if you need a quick one night stop it's alright and cheap. If you have the option to go somewhere else...

We booked in for a twin room with own bathroom. the A/C worked well and the room was clean. The shared kitchen was okay with a few stoves and fridges, cleanliness could be improved. Overall it was a good and...

We stopped in Rockhamptom to break up our drive up the East Coast. This place is such good value! We booked a double because it was basically the same price as two of us in a dorm in other places. We had our own little cabin with a fridge and an ensuite! We used the kitchen which was good. The...

Location of this was a little sketchy. It's really quite out of the way so if you want to go do anything in Rockhampton (even though there isn't much to do) it's at least a 20 minute walk. The people around are a little scary as we were coming back around 12am and these guys were loitering outside the main...

I was dropped of in rockhampton 3am due to a overbooked bus. I had nowhere to stay and didn't know where I was. Luckily the staff at this hostel answered the phone in the middle of the night and welcomed me. It's a clean, calm hostel with a big kitchen and very helpful staff. I highly recommend this place!

I was only here for one night, but had a great stay. Gorgeous hostel with an outdoorsy tropical feel. Staff were very helpful in suggesting where to get food. Free wifi in the common area. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Bathroom beautifully decorated, and the shower was gloriously hot on a chilly night. Only complaint is not much space...
