Quiet backpackers in great location. Helpful staff and clean accommodation. Kitchen had everything you could need and more. They've even got a lovely laid back dog to keep you company in the lounge. A home away from home.

A perfect little stay. We used Gladstone as a stop off on our long car trip south. This backpackers is super clean and nicely managed - love the green initiatives in place! The Aussie Bulldog who likes to sleep in the kitchen doorway is a beautiful big ol' gentle giant. 😊 Thanks for having us.

Hi, we are really glad you enjoyed your stay and noticed our attempts to assist our environment. Pandi is becoming a 'STAR' as people actually arrive and ask where she is and no we don't make her up!!! Funny More

Nothing to say except that we had a very good sleep! Beds, kitchen and facilities were very clean and we had a warm welcoming! Plus it's cheap and you get 30 min of wifi if you book with them directly If you want to make a night stopover while driving down its the perfect place!

Friendly, quiet, clean and a nice breeze because of location on the hill. I enjoyed my one night stay. I would recommend this classic queenslander style backpackers. Staff were very helpful with excellent map of Gladstone. Easy access to main street, foreshore areas.
