I stay here for about 3 month working and had a great stay. Read a few comments about the owners and although Dean, on occasion has gone off a few of us it was usually for fair reason. Next day was always OK and he never held grudge. In all rules are enforced like no drinking after 10-30 and no smoking in areas and whole noise thing. I do admit it was one of the nicest and safest hostels I have stay at. Thnx Simone to keeping the place so clean.

Admin reply: Hi Anita hope your holiday goes to plan have great time.:-)

Great hostel, awful management,
We stayed at the reef lodge hostel for three nights. The hostel itself was great! The facilities were good and everything was really clean. Unfortunately, the management/ owners ruined the goods vibes in the hostel. They were rude and very unfriendly. There were very strict rules that they were happy to explain every day / all day (for example: you can't drink in the commun room after 10:30 pm, if you do drink they will confiscate the alcohol. Note: with us they just turned off the lights of the commun room while we're were sitting and talking: no alcohol involved). On top of that they were not helpful at all in giving us information about Townsville. The worst though was that the owner was shouting at 8:30 am in our room while everybody was sleeping because he saw on the camera footage that one of our roommates was drinking a beer at 5 am in the common room. We felt like we're 16 again so it was time for us to leave!

Admin reply: Thank you for your feed back.
Yes the lights do go off every night at 10-30pm. As far as explaining drinking in the hostel it happens 2 times. Once when you check in and then each night at 10-30pm when I go around to lock up and tell people last drinks. Sadly it seems people need to be reminded.
As far as shouting at the person at 8-30am I was in the dorm at 8-50am for about 30 seconds and I did not shout. He was an individual who had been asked 4 times to come and pay his rent as he owed 6 days and yes he had been drinking and helped make a very large mess in the hostel at around 3-30am till 5am. Often there are circumstances that people do not see. Thank you kindly for your feedback and I am sorry if the situation caused you grief and I hope you have a great holiday an Australia.

Hi Dino,

Just looking at your comments I can see that on 11 occasions you have told people you were "glade" they enjoyed their stay, or words to that effect.
A glade is an open area in woodland, a synonym for "clearing".

I think you mean to say 'glad'.

Admin reply: So true! Good to see someone reads my guestbook

I lived at Reef Lodge for almost four months, & found it to be one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. The owner/managers should be proud of the space they've created as it has a great atmosphere, beautiful gardens, as well as being clean with an abundance of modern facilities. I enjoyed how the hostel layout takes advantage of the tropical weather and common areas arReefe mostly outdoors. Since leaving Reef Lodge I find myself constantly comparing thethe hostels I'm staying at with what I experienced at Reef. The commercial sized kitchen (complete With ovens) was brilliant & usually clean, a were the dorms. I liked the fact that all the dorms and the bathrooms are mixed and the biggest dorm only slept six. The smaller room sizes and the popularity of the outdoor common areas, as well the fact that the kitchen could accommodate rush hour and still have space at the benches for others to sit and eat, made Reef Lodge feel like a cosy community. Management are very hands on, and rules are strictly enforced, but the result is a safe hostel where security never seemed to be an issue so as a guest I had more time to relax and enjoy my time there. Thanx Dino & Simone, you run a great place, now go on a holiday

Admin reply: Hi Cath glade you enjoyed your stay here and thank you for the great comments. Hope you have a great trip and we may see you again. all the best

dino:-)
