I stayed at the Gladstone Backpackers for a total of three weeks during Nov-Dec 2015 and had a great experience. The staff (and everybody else!) was always friendly and willing to help-I was very impressed that they worked to find room for me when the hostel was booked out! The dorms and the hostel itself were always clean and I... More

Amazing hostel!! I accidentally came here for the night, I was supposed to sleep in Rockhampton. The reception was very friendly and showed me all the facilities. There is free thee and coffee in the morning. You can buy cereal and coffee for 1 dollar if you like. They give you a towel to shower (I loved this the most!).... More

Stayed here again and enjoyed every minute. There's always interesting people to have an intelligent conversation with. Clean beyond belief, quiet and always a GOOD vibe. If you're looking for somewhere without a loud party atmosphere, this is your spot.

The location was close to town and the property was beautiful. My dorm room was very clean and tidy. There was also a backyard and balcony! The kitchen had everything you needed, including one of the fancy coffee machines (buy pods from reception)

I only stopped here briefly for one night but the service and hospitality I received was faultless! Errol went above and beyond to ensure my stay was enjoyable. The hostel is spacious yet has a very homey vibe, and the facilities are incredibly clean. There is a pool, outdoor deck with bbq, great kitchen, book exchange.. I went to bed... More

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.

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!
