When I arrive this backpackers, it was 11:30 p.m. and they still treat me patient. The room is really clean, and the kitchen and tv room always bright the most the important of all, the reception are friendly. If I have a chance to visit Gladstone, I would choose it to be my accommodation!

Beds were clean and comfortable, lounge room was cozy and had plenty of room to relax. The balcony out back provided a great view of the town and swimming pool in the yard. Host was very nice and helpful. I will definitely be back in the future. Thanks

We booked a room and airport transfer after returning from Heron Island. Booking online and email communication was easy, the staff friendly and helpful, the communal areas and our room were clean and comfortable. The owners have put thought into providing little extras to make this a more like a home away from home. Was a great spot to relax... More

We arrived here for one night. The room was quite expensive - we payed for a double with shared facilities and it was $70 I think. There are 2 showers and 3 toilets between the rooms. The room was clean - minimally furnished but there was use of a kitchen and deck area. It was a pleasant enough stay. There... More
