Good enough hostel. Staff and rooms and kitchen are just fine. Overall a nice hostel which is nothing special but you can definately stay here for a while. You will get the usual good yha hospitality and service.

Fantastic bed, good mid range mattress not to soft or hard. nice light duvet soft pillow slept like a dream. Fan has a mega turbo setting which is guaranteed to keep you cool. Only downside is there doesn't seem to be much going on round here. Nevertheless a good stopgap.

Me and a friend stayed here last week in a private room, very clean bedroom with comfy beds. There is a large kitchen, dining area and living room. The only problem was you had to sit outside near reception for the wifi which is a bit weird but the staff were very helpful in giving advice on what to do...

Stayed in a double cabin (detached) which had its own en suite, for 2 nights. Found it great value, especially compared to many other hostels we have stayed in. Lots of room, own fridge, and very peaceful. The cabins are actually ex-Olympic village buildings so have been put to great use. Detached buildings make for, in my opinion, a much...

The Rockhampton Backpackers gave us a clean and comfortable stop over on the Bruce Highway. A laid back atmosphere with our own cabin with ensuite and an outdoor sitting area that made for a comfortable night stay. Cheaper than a motel and nicely located off the highway so you can have a quiet nights sleep. The cabin had a double...

We just gave the hostel a call once we arrived in Rockhampton, and the van was there in no time. Really friendly staff that gave us some good advice about some places in Rockhampton. The beds were comfortable. The toilets and showers were clean. The kitchen was big and well equiped. The wifi is also pretty good, except for the...

Came in late after a long drive to stay for just the night. Woke up to soaking wet personal items due to a leaky fridge. Could literally wring out clothing, iPad got wet, phone charger was sitting in water all night, and leather bag has water stains. What did they do about this situation???? NOTHING.

I only stayed one night and arrived really late and left early in the morning so can't tell you about a lot of stuff. My late check in was easily organized with having a chat with a lovely lady on the phone. Bathrooms were clean, beds were quite comfy with an actual duvee. In the morning got good instructions how...
