Staff were very rude and unhelpful, showers and toilets were terrible and kitchen was awful, no free wifi, no atmosphere, lacked friendliness, everywhere was unclean which attracted bugs and flies, not a good place to stay.

In short everything about this hostel was crap except for the looks of the girl working at the reception. The rooms are small and stinky. The beds are old an uncomfortable. The price for an hour of WIFI was 6 Dollar ! I was happy i could leave.

The first day we arrived in this terrible hostel we were already very dissapointed. We thought it would be a cheap accommodation, but I advice everyone to pay a few euros more and get to a REAL backpackers hostel. 1. There were no activities at all in the hostel ( makes it difficult to find new backpackers here) 2. The... More

Nice place to stay, rooms are big and the wardrobe is handy! Toilets are large and shared, not much noise in the one night we stayed, comfortable bed and large kitchen area. Free parking is also a bonus in a good location. The pool was also in a good place but it was too cold for that when we stayed!

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.
