“Fantastic Hostel”
 My friend and I stayed one night in this great hostel and I can't say a bad word about it! It is ideally located, close to the
  ferry terminal to Magnetic Island, the Greyhound bus stop and the airport shuttle! The hostel itself is very clean we stayed
 in an eight bed dorm which was very clean and comfortable! The woman on the front desk was also lovely. Overall I would
 definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!

The cruisy atmosphere at Townsvilles best hostel extends from Buddhist sculptures and hammocks strewn through the gardens to an outdoor cinema with swinging lounges and more than 1200 DVD's. There is a games room with bench presses free weights and a retro video game machine (space invaders Frogger Paceman ... very cool) The sizable kitchen. dorms and private rooms are all spotless.

I definitely recommend this hostel! It's in a great location, close to everything. The rooms and the kitchen were clean. You
 can relax in two common areas and it really feels like the second home. I stayed there for 3 months or so, I didn't really
 count my days, but i could never complained about anything. And Dean and his family are very friendly, just to let you know.
 Thank you!
