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 etc. to cook your dinner which is unfortunate because it's all stored in the reception area which is closed after 7pm. Also there seem to be many "older" people who live there permantely which affect the atmosphere in a bad way so we weren't able to enjoy a social backpacker atmosphere like in other hostels. And in case you are wondering you are only allowed to have 3 slices of toast in the morning...??!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review! We are lucky to have a lot of space and we appreciate your feedback so that we can continue to improve it and our guests' experiences. I'm really sorry that your were not able to get the kitchen supplies you needed while we were closed . We try to get pots and pans to guests before we close or at least have some available in the kitchen overnight so we will definitely work on our system for the future. We do clean the kitchens first thing every morning but unfortunately being in the tropics ants are commonly encountered in areas with access to food and water.

We do have workers stay here for longer term while they have contracts in Townsville but since we have so much space we are able designate a section for longer-term stayers and a section for the backpackers. In the future we will make sure our guests are more aware of the social areas designated for our backpackers such as the pool, lounge room, and the courtyard.

Again thanks so much for your feedback and we hope you enjoy the rest of your travels!

Best Regards,
The friendly staff at Adventurers Backpackers

i stay here two nights and the staff is very friendly. The room is good en clean. And the swimming pool is also good. The city is a walk of 15 min. That's the only stupid think on this hostel. It was nice to stay in this hostel.

We stayed here 2 nights and the staff were really friendly. The kitchen, common room and bedrooms were all spacious and we were given the option for late checkout which was very helpful. Overall a very nice hostel to stay!

Stayed here for 2 nights and found the atmosphere relly friendly. All the facilties were excellent especially the large kitchen. Also, there was air con in the rooms!! Very cheap and i'd recommend anyone to stay here.

I'm not sure why this place gets bad reviews! Maybe those people haven't traveled around the world much, or they tend to stay in nice places...

The room we had was nice and big. There was a mini fridge and a table and chairs. There was also bedside tables with lamps, which was a first for me! Although it was a huge room, the hostel staff did their best to make it feel like home with artwork and shelving. The location isn't bad, and there is a delicious Indian restaurant next door.

The owner was out and about chatting with everyone that stays there, and never once was rude or awkward - just one of the rest of us! Loved our stay here, and if we ever go back to Townsville, it will be a must!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mini fridge so you can keep drinks cold for the hot sun!
