First of all, as a backpacker - stay away from townsville. More or less nothing to do, and the nightlife is average. Secondly - if your giving Townsville a visit, don't go to globetrotters. It seems more or less like a hostel in decay. No service at all, the kitchen was the grossest I've ever seen and there is no... More

I booked in this hostel with my friends on our way to Magnetic Island. We just wanted a night to chill out before taking the ferry and this hostel was one of the 2 places that were the closest to the ferry terminal. It's litterally just 10 minutres walk and very easy to get to. the Greyhound stop is just... More

Good location in CBD area, quite, and clean. Satisfy with its price and service. The room have basic supply that you might needed, clean sheet and, towel, toilet paper, free wifi as well.

It is dissapointing to see such a negative review which we do take very seriously. I am however confused as to where this information has come from as I am the only staff member at Globetrotters. I am the onsite Manager and deal with all bookings, maintenance & cleaning so I am unsure as to who you are refering to... More

It is more of a halfway house rather than a hostel it has a lot of recovering drug addicts and alcoholics staying here.The manager is rude and aggressive and his main aim is to try and sleep with female backpackers and if he can not get his own way then you can say bye bye to this place as you...

I actually really liked the way I was treated, haven't had it like this anywhere else. The management has now changed (just before I visited, in July 2011). Over the 2 weeks I was there, this is what I got - I've been fed some barbecue one evening, I've been taken to local pubs on a couple of occasions, I've... More

Recently under new management this hostel is at the forefront of ambitious plans meaning that this time next year its going to be a totally different place but right now its a friendly homely place with all the basics that make it a place you'd want to stay at. EG, kitchen, washing machines etc. The guy running it, a larger... More
