Stayed here for three nights whilst travelling up the east coast with my boyfriend in a 8 bed dorm, there was nothing really terrible about this place but nothing that would make us return either ! The staff were so friendly and really helpful and we loved the staff dogs that were there they were friendly and we loved dogs...

We spent two nights at this hostel while travelling up the coast and were quite comfortable. There is nothing overly wrong with this hostel, there is just nothing outstanding either. We stayed in a mixed 8 bed dorm that only had two other people in on our first night, and they were really friendly. It filled up on our second...

All I can say is this place is the most filthy place I have stayed. I stayed in a double room which was dusty, had dirt on the mirror and windowsills and a broken blind. The communal areas were also filthy, I couldn't eat from any of the crockery in their kitchen. The bathroom was also awful with broken glass...

Not good first impressions. Looked like a run down caravan park with a broken sofa/furniture on the grass at the entrance. Showers block dirty. No facilities such as a cafe. Reception good though and picked up from Greyhound (but had to call first). Just stayed 1 night to avoid the overnight greyhound to Agnes water but woundn't stay here again....

We had a self-contained cottage in a garden setting with a patio containing a table for two. We ate all our meals there. This YHA was exceedingly clean, quiet, and well organized and managed. The staff was especially helpful. My wife and I both liked this hostel very much.

The best hostel I have stayed in so far. A massive kitchen, and the first one I've been to that's fully equipped, spotlessly clean, as is the whole site and the rooms. Free wifi, no more $4 per hour etc... You can bring your own booze, although it's a one beer kind of place, ie you would really want to...

Only stayed one night in a double en suite room - originally it was part of the 2000 Sydney Olympics' village. Good room, quiet hostel, well equipped kitchen, friendly staff. The WiFi was good and free.

Stayed here for two night on our way down to Rainbow Beach. Arrived at Greyhound stop and minibus was there waiting to take us to hostel.

The rooms were small but clean and with nice air conditioning. It's a small place with many people staying who are working. The kitchen and pool are both fine. There really isn't much to do in Rockhampton and we won't remember much of it, as it's not an exciting place. One thing we will remember, though, was the service we...
