We had a really bad time at Civic guest house.After driving from Cairns all we wanted was sleep which was impossible.We booked a double ensuite room for $74 for one night.The door had a huge gap under it so we could hear everything going on in the hostel all night, and the room was near the shared internet area so we could hear people talking until very late.They supply you with a tiny paper thin blanket so when we finally got to sleep we were woken up by the cold, and then at 6:30am we were woken by the sun because there are NO curtains in the rooms!The room was old, there is nowhere to put your belongings, not even a small bedside table.At $74 per night we were expecting at least a decent bed and curtains and if not then at least a decent sleep!When i complained they just told me the building was rented and they cant do anything about it, but i think its a rip off for the money we paid!!
