It backs on to a supermarket complex, and is only two blocks away from the beachside. The rooms were tidy and the beds were comfortable, didn't use the kitchen facilities much and the bathrooms were average as well (still good though).

So clean, so much space. SUCH comfortable beds, not too busy and lots of space even if it was. Shuttle bus run from the ferry & bus terminals for ease of access and in good area of town. Provides city maps and explain some good places to visit. Great nights sleep and two thumbs up here!

The hostel is in a really good, spacious building and is very clean and well kept. We were in an 8 bed, mixed dorm and the people in our room were mostly friendly and nice. The beds are all in a line along the room which is a bit different but they're not overly close together so it's not too... More

We stayed for one night only at the Foreign Exchange. Was picked up by their shuttle bus (and dropped of again) and they had a friendly service and attitude. Nice and clean hostel with roomy kitchens (no cutlery, though). Plenty of showers/bathrooms and free wifi. Also a big lounge area with tv. All in all a great place to stay.... More

I had a very nice stay at this hostel. When I emailed prior to arrival to ask if reception would still be open at 8pm, the reception guy Ben very kindly offered to pick me up from the bus station. Again, when I enquired about getting back to the bus station on departure I was again offered a free ride... More

I was mainly staying in Townsville as a stop off and this seemed the most conveniently located place! Just a few minutes from an array of food places, shops etc. and a very short walk to the esplanade! The reception/ kitchen/ lounge area was pleasant and clean, almost felt like a hotel at times! My one complaint would be bathrooms;... More

Rooms air conditioned and spacious. Communal area had comfy couches and a hard drive of movies which was good. However, kitchen was dirty and messy so didn't want to cook in there more than once and bathroom (could only find one on our whole floor) was always dirty and more often than not without toilet paper. Was ok as a... More
