Me and a friend stayed here last week in a private room, very clean bedroom with comfy beds. There is a large kitchen, dining area and living room. The only problem was you had to sit outside near reception for the wifi which is a bit weird but the staff were very helpful in giving advice on what to do... More

Stayed in a double cabin (detached) which had its own en suite, for 2 nights. Found it great value, especially compared to many other hostels we have stayed in. Lots of room, own fridge, and very peaceful. The cabins are actually ex-Olympic village buildings so have been put to great use. Detached buildings make for, in my opinion, a much... More

The Rockhampton Backpackers gave us a clean and comfortable stop over on the Bruce Highway. A laid back atmosphere with our own cabin with ensuite and an outdoor sitting area that made for a comfortable night stay. Cheaper than a motel and nicely located off the highway so you can have a quiet nights sleep. The cabin had a double... More

We just gave the hostel a call once we arrived in Rockhampton, and the van was there in no time. Really friendly staff that gave us some good advice about some places in Rockhampton. The beds were comfortable. The toilets and showers were clean. The kitchen was big and well equiped. The wifi is also pretty good, except for the... More

Came in late after a long drive to stay for just the night. Woke up to soaking wet personal items due to a leaky fridge. Could literally wring out clothing, iPad got wet, phone charger was sitting in water all night, and leather bag has water stains. What did they do about this situation???? NOTHING. They rudely said it was... More

I only stayed one night and arrived really late and left early in the morning so can't tell you about a lot of stuff. My late check in was easily organized with having a chat with a lovely lady on the phone. Bathrooms were clean, beds were quite comfy with an actual duvee. In the morning got good instructions how...

We stayed in a little hut - ex Olympics accommodation. This was fairly clean and a nice size. The room fridge was very dirty, covered in mold and grubby inside and out. It completely froze solid our food. The communal kitchen was absolutely filthy. There were plenty of young German backpackers happily cooking in it. If you opened any cupboard,... More

Rockhampton is a small town, and if you are arriving late you have to take a taxi to the hostel. The website tells you that the hostel has a shuttle bus to the train and busstation, but it runs only two times a day. So not untill 8 pm. The service at the hostel isn't really good. The hostel it... More
