Like many young travellers this was chosen because it is a cheap place to stay, however for quality, it's the worst backpackers I've ever stayed at. We arrived as a late check in which was fine, you just have to inform the reception because they close at 7pm. On arrival we were a bit surprised to find the backpackers so... More

After driving 10+ hours I needed a good night's sleep at a reasonable price and that's exactly what I got. Great value for money with friendly staff, especially the very knowledgeable Scottish lass at reception. Sure enough I was most pleased with my stay.

Had an amazing time here. The owners go out of their way to make you feel at home and even helped us find jobs whilst in Townsville! It is in a central location close to the night life and restaurants Would recommend staying here! Thank you! See you again!

We arrived late on the greyhound (00:25am) and they left the key for us with a map so we were able to just go right up to the room. The room was spacious and a nice double bed with a sheet - we were quite cold during the night in the room. At reception however the next morning we saw... More

Some of the friendliest staff I have encountered whilst travelling! Very helpful in every aspect, even when looking for jobs! Well located close to the Centre of the city. Easy access to all points of interest and very useful for booking trips/activities (Magnetic Island). Good, clean rooms and comfortable beds, especially for the price! Lots of facilities, numerous shower/bathroom areas,... More

Adventurers Backpackers Resort is not a Resort at all. All though the rooms are spacious everything else seems to be too spacious for the staff to be able to look after it and maintain it. There were ants in the kitchen and also if you come back "home" after a Sightseeing trip after 7pm you don't have any pots, pans... More
