The pick up was a really quick and helpful transfer from the airport, which was close by. The staff were friendly and easy going. A very laid back vibe with clean rooms and almost everything was eco-friendly! Would definitely recommend this place for anyone staying in Gladstone.

Only got to stay one night here unfortunately. Staff went out of their way to make me feel at home. Fantastic set up out the back with couches, fire pit, pool, pool table, and loads more. The kitchen was well equipped with it and the whole building being clean with a very friendly atmosphere.

I stayed at the Gladstone Backpackers for a total of three weeks during Nov-Dec 2015 and had a great experience. The staff (and everybody else!) was always friendly and willing to help-I was very impressed that they worked to find room for me when the hostel was booked out! The dorms and the hostel itself were always clean and I... More

Amazing hostel!! I accidentally came here for the night, I was supposed to sleep in Rockhampton. The reception was very friendly and showed me all the facilities. There is free thee and coffee in the morning. You can buy cereal and coffee for 1 dollar if you like. They give you a towel to shower (I loved this the most!).... More

Stayed here again and enjoyed every minute. There's always interesting people to have an intelligent conversation with. Clean beyond belief, quiet and always a GOOD vibe. If you're looking for somewhere without a loud party atmosphere, this is your spot.

The location was close to town and the property was beautiful. My dorm room was very clean and tidy. There was also a backyard and balcony! The kitchen had everything you needed, including one of the fancy coffee machines (buy pods from reception)

Quiet backpackers in great location. Helpful staff and clean accommodation. Kitchen had everything you could need and more. They've even got a lovely laid back dog to keep you company in the lounge. A home away from home.
