We were in Aus during the cyclone, staying in townsville we couldnt get to cairns where we had booked our flight out of australia, our scuba diving and other activities. The staff helped us out, gave us extra nights accommodation with a discounted price, rang up the diving companies, to help us rearrange, as we would have lost our money... More

We stayed at the Adventurers resort for two nights. The staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful. They helped us book activities in Cairns, investigate diving options, booked hostel nights and suggested running routes. The Hostel was large but quite empty, kitchen facilities were fine and the reception let us borrow all the cooking utensils we needed free of charge. We... More

I have never written a review before until now when I just had to do it. I've been travelling from hostel to hostel for 4 months and this is the worst. The rooms are like prison cells, the beds are terrible because you can't sit on them as they are too low down, the reception is closed more than it's... More

After reading the reviews for Adventurers my boyfriend and I were a little nervous about staying there, but we went ahead and booked it as it was the best priced hostel in Townsville. We are really glad we did as we had a lovely time there and actually extended our stay. We had a double room to ourselves which was... More

never saw anything like that. Toilets are just a mess and smell horrible. It seems that nobody cares about the shower and restroom facilities. The room is fine if you just got out of prison but i believe that the australian prisons are still better. The bed is a foam mattress and i don`t need to comment that. The kitchen... More

This Backpackers at Palmer Street in Townsville, Queensland, needs a general cleaning and a general fixing of problems. Many toilets in the mens bathrooms are broken and nobody cares. And its really dirty there. Second: the Resort is noisy because many guests don't think about the needs of other guests.

The hostel itself is a bit run down and in drastic need of an update however whilst I was here for two nights I do not have a complaint about it. The beds are not big as the bottom bunks have about a 2ft max gap between the top and bottom bunk, but hey you don't spend all day in... More

This hostal is simply terrible. I want to keep it short: Rooms have only one fenced window, which results in the rooms having close to no sunlight Beds are like kids beds. In the lower bunk nobody can ever sit upright Reception is closed over midday Kitchen has absolutely no cutlery, no equipment at all. I saw people bringing their... More

I almost never bother with reviews, but I was reeling after a stay here. I stayed recently at this place and I seriously do not understand how the owners are allowed to continue to operate a dump like this. I have friends in Townsville that I was visiting but unfortunately they became very ill with the flu the day before... More

Sixty being the "new 40", I was ready a week of adventure in Townsville, but thrifty was also important. I highly recommend Adventurers Backpackers in South Townsville - a former 1960s motel resort with individual rooms, communual cooking facilities, lounge and swimming pool. Great choice for those who like meeting and jiving with young people from all corners of the... More
