I stayed here in Townsville for 3 nights. This place is great. It is run by a German couple (or at least a couple with a German accent lol). While they accidently put me in the wrong room upon check in and I had to switch, they upgraded me to a nicer room for free due to this mistake. The common areas and rooms are kept extremely clean. They offer free wifi in the common area, and the laundry and kitchen facilities are very clean as well. The location is a 5-8 minute walk from the center of town (Flinders Street). Free tourist maps are given as well. I would definitely recommend this hostel for travellers! Oh and I paid $25/night for a 4 bed room with aircon
