This is what the Lonely Planet Townsville’s best hostel! 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."
