Big and well spaced out building with plenty of communal space (indoors and outdoors), lots of room to dry washing and a big, clean kitchen area. Think I'm right in assuming this is a family run business (certainly the impression I got!). Reception staff were very helpful and always had a smile on there faces.

one of these hostel brwsers led me to Civic. After a long day the welcoming was warm as the weather. It was a long time since someone showed me how to get to my room in a hostel! Perfect yard to chill. Nice kitchen, always wanted in a hostel, with a sensible smoke-fire alarm. Not annoying at all. confortable beds,... More

Spent couple of nights here. Hostel is clean and cosy and staff friendly as we checked in. Room is small but has got own fridge, sink and towels. Location is ok, Woollies around the corner. Very nice place to stay in Townsville! :)

Stayed in a dorm room - probably one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Room is alright, including shower and toilet. Fridge IN THE ROOM, plus regular fridges in the kitchen. Little nice things like soap in the bathrooms, free coffee and tea. Kitchen is well equipped. Highly recommended!

Myself and a friend stayed here for just under 3 weeks whilst working in Townsville after it was recommended by colleagues for its cleanliness. We stayed in an 8 bed dorm for the first couple of nights and then moved to a private twin for the rest of our stay ( just so we could spread out a little ).... More

This is the cleanest and homiest hostel I have stayed at yet. I got a 4 bedroom room for 22 dollars. They apologized for the lack of AC, but the fan in the room was more than enough! Their commitment to a clean hostel and pleasant staff makes this my only choice if I am in Townsville!
