First of all, as a backpacker - stay away from townsville. More or less nothing to do, and the nightlife is average. Secondly - if your giving Townsville a visit, don't go to globetrotters. It seems more or less like a hostel in decay. No service at all, the kitchen was the grossest I've ever seen and there is no... More

We just wanted a night to chill out before taking the ferry and this hostel was one of the 2 places that were the closest to the ferry terminal. It's litterally just 10 minutres walk and very easy to get to. the Greyhound stop is just... More

It is dissapointing to see such a negative review which we do take very seriously. I am however confused as to where this information has come from as I am the only staff member at Globetrotters. I am the onsite Manager and deal with all bookings, maintenance & cleaning so I am unsure as to who you are refering to... More

I actually really liked the way I was treated, haven't had it like this anywhere else. The management has now changed (just before I visited, in July 2011). Over the 2 weeks I was there, this is what I got - I've been fed some barbecue one evening, I've been taken to local pubs on a couple of occasions, I've... More
