This is one of my favourite hostels that I have stayed in. I got picked up from the bus station and dropped off there for both the ferry to Magnetic Island and when I wanted to catch the bus down to Airlie Beach. The couple that run it are really nice and friendly. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm which had an ensuite which was really nice and was all kept lovely and clean, our sheets were always folded up so it felt more like a hotel than a hostel, we also had our own fridge so I kept my food and drinks in here. The person complaining about there not being many plugs is rubbish and even if you did unplug the aircon there is no need for it at this time of the year. The free WiFi is great and there is a nice area to sit and use it if you're not in your room, every hostel needs this. All in all would highly recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Townsville.
