I liked this Guesthouse a lot. It was such a nice break from all the dumpy party-backpacker hostels I'd been staying at while making the Sydney to Cairns trek. It was a great price for a very clean room with 4 beds. She even picked us up down at the Ferry building for free and dropped us off again when we departed 2 days later. There's even free use of the Washing Machine and then drying on a clothesline.
It's just a short walk down the hill to the downtown area and the grocery store. There's no wireless internet, but there are several internet cafe's right down the road.
I highly recommend staying at this Hostel if you're stuck in Townsville!
