      The picture on Booked.net is different, it was showing the "private" room, it was quite dirty, especially the toilette and when we arrived (9pm) we had to wait more than one hour because nobody was there, but on Booking there wasn't written that we should check in before 6pm.

      We didn't end up staying at the hostel in the end as we decided to move on early to Brisbane. Because we had already reserved the room through the Internet we decided to go and explain our change of plans in the hope of avoiding a cancellation fee. In fact it turned out to be worthwhile as no fee was charged and the nice lady behind the desk even let's us use all the facilities (shower, toilet etc) as we had been travelling for a while. They even let us store our bags with no charge until we picked up our hire car. Overall, excellent service, great location and would definitely stay here when I go back to the area.

      The rooms were dirty and the staff wasn't very nice. It seemed like nobody cared about anything or anyone

      It was the only place i could find a 3-6 person dorm for so cheap, the people were friendly and the place was clean. Best Bang for Buck ive seen so far.

      So called " non smoking " policy abused by in-house staff members, all of whom smoked .

      To finding backpackers is easy.

      Even though i booked double room, they don't have a private toilet. Many insects...

      Clean shared rooms, big kitchen and living room, nice gardens.

      Nothing negative!

    • Couple

      Bed and bed linen was clean and fresh.

      There is no way I would recommend Palace Backpackers to others. There was no airconditioning only a ceiling fan which was faulty and we had to turn it off which meant the room was extremely warm for sleeping in. The front door to our house/apartment badly needed repair as a pane of glass was broken and it was boarded up. The whole house badly needed repainting. We had a private bedroom but shared a bathroom. The bathroom was dirty and desperately needed a thorough clean. It appeared to not have been cleaned in a long time. It was absolutely disgusting and we could not wait to leave it in the morning. Pay a little more and get a motel in the town.

      Pool

      Very noisy guests couldn't sleep at all !! Don't recommend it at all

      The Youth Hotel was well designed, modern. Several accomodations, like bungalows, all of them with kitchen. Possibility to meet a lot of people.

      Just one bathroom for 8 people, it requires a bit of organisation. The shower had no pressure.
