Liked: The double room was basic but clean with air con. Towels provided was good. Bathroom was big with separate shower cubicles. The kitchen was big with all utensils provided and generally clean. Free WiFi in reception area was good. Small pool. Staff very helpful.

Disliked: It's not in the best location in terms of close to Rockhampton town. We walked to the town and we walked to the zoo which was quite far in 34 degrees heat.

Liked: Staff were extremely welcoming and friendly. The facilities were, for the most part really well looked after.

Disliked: The location of the hostel isn't ideal. It's good for food shops but its basically in suburbs and very close to a busy road. Not that it impinges noise-wise, but we needed the car to explore.

Liked: Calm, relaxing hostel. So safe the people in the room next to us left their car keys hanging out of their room door all night and noone took them. Free wifi but only near reception which meant you didn't just sit in your room on the internet which was nice.6 bed dorm was clean and spacious, fatastic kitchen facilities, first place with an oven I've seen and the best thing? The 2 members of staff. Couldn't do more to help us. Really lovely.

Disliked: The location wasn't ideal for us but that was our fault. Not really anything we didn't like. Most people staying there had cars so the location wasn't an issue.
