Reef Lodge Backpackers Hostel


Reef Lodge is Townsville is a unique and quirky, purpose built hostel. Dating back from the 1950's. The unusual layout was described by one backpacker as "a little village" and is reminiscent of the original owners Mediterranean heritage... The hostel caters to short to medium term stays and has a choice of private en-suited rooms / private rooms with shared bathrooms as well as dormitory style accommodation... The property has a large well stocked commercial style kitchen with gas stove and ovens, as well as a BBQ area for those wanting to do a bit Ozzie of outdoor cooking and slipping a "Shrimp" on the barbie... As you move around the hostel there are a number of nooks where you can get away from it and relax, not forgetting to mention the hanging lounges in the 2 x T.V. areas. One of which you can watch movies, as the set up is reminiscent of a small movie theater... There are also a couple hammocks where you can kick back and relax as well there are plenty of outdoor areas to simply sit, relax and reset for the next part of your journey... Reef Lodge is situated in the city heart and is not a party hostel and we ask people to settle down after 10-30pm.
