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

Stayed here in April on two separate occasions. The rooms and bunk beds are not to bad. Bathrooms however, bugs everywhere. Kitchen not clean. One staff member was horribly rude, the other very accommodating and friendly. Al in all, if you need a quick one night stop it's alright and cheap. If you have the option to go somewhere else...

We stayed one night at the YHA Rockhampton in Jan/2016. The Manager was very friendly and made the booking professionally. We booked in for a twin room with own bathroom. the A/C worked well and the room was clean. The shared kitchen was okay with a few stoves and fridges, cleanliness could be improved. Overall it was a good and... More
