Civic Guest House Backpackers Hostel Reviews

Description

Recently renovated and now voted one of the TOP 10 HOSTELS in Australia, the Civic Guest House is a friendly, charming hostel in the heart of Townsville offering clean, safe and cosy accommodation for the budget conscious traveler. All you will have to pay for is your room - no hidden fees or surcharges. Free Wi-Fi and a friendly service are what we consider a must. We also offer free transport to/from the Ferry and Greyhound bus terminal.

Our aim is to provide our guests with a comfortable and quiet place to stay in a relaxed and friendly environment. You can chill out in the lounge room, prepare a meal in our large communal kitchen, or have a game of chess in the new game room.

Conveniently located in a quiet street in Townsville’s CBD, the Civic Guest House Backpackers Hostel gives you a broad choice of room options ranging from shared dorms to private double rooms with en-suite bathrooms.

We offer dorm style rooms - 4 and 6 bed share; twin share rooms, which may be booked as a 2 bed dorm or private room; and private double rooms, some with en-suite bathroom. All our rooms are air-conditioned except the 4 bed dorms at $24 and the standard twin rooms.

PLEASE IGNORE ALL REVIEWERS PHOTOS AND REVIEWS OLDER THAN MARCH 2011 AS THE HOSTEL HAS BEEN BOUGHT AND FULLY RENOVATED SINCE.

Location and Contact

Location

• LOCATION
• Civic Guest House Backpackers Hostel
• 262 Walker Street
• Townsville QLD 4810
• The Civic Guest House is centrally located in downtown Townsville, a short 5 minute stroll to Flinders Mall and a 15 minute walk to the Strand (beach) and Palmer Street (restaurant precinct). The famous 'Goat Track' to Castle Hill is only a few blocks away.
• We offer FREE pick-up (at 2pm and 7pm) and drop-off (at 9:45am and 11am) to/from the Greyhound bus terminal and the ferry terminal to Magnetic Island. Please note that pick-ups and drop-offs need to be booked 24 hours prior arrival/departure.
• Outside of these hours you can catch the city bus n.200 or 201, which will pick you up in front of the Greyhound/Ferry terminal and drop you off one block away from the hostel for $1.70.
• DIRECTIONS
• From the airport, the shuttle bus company called Con-X-ion will drop you off in front of the Civic Guest House for $10. Their counter is located on the right side of the main exit door near the baggage claim area. Alternatively a taxi will cost you between $20 and $25. Make sure to ask the driver to go via Ingham Road as it makes it a shorter ride.
• If you are arriving by car, follow the signs to downtown. Walker Street is one street back from the main street (Sturt Street).
• If you are walking from the Greyhound terminal, walk towards town past the ReefHQ Aquarium and follow Flinders Street until you hit Stanley Street. Turn right into Stanley and then left into Walker Street.
• FREE PARKING
• Parking on the street in front of the hostel is free from 5pm to 9am on week days and free on weekends. Alternatively there are free spaces a short 2 minute walk away, which can be used during the day. Simply ask reception upon arrival.
