So Clean it Sparkles! Jan 05, 2013
We liked Civic Guesthouse, Townsville. We arrived in Townsville in the evening and they sent a van to pick us up to save us the 20 minute walk from the bus terminal, unbeknownst to us! We ended up walking but the walk is manageable!

The hostel is sparkling clean, almost to be point of lacking a certain amount of personality and homliness. The couple who own the hostel are friendly and helpful, especially the lady. She seems quite invested in the hostel and it's clenliness, she's always bustling about wiping the kitchen counters etc. She also gave us some good information about Magnetic Island.

The WIFI is free, but can only be accessed from a certain area in the hostel, the reception. The kitchen is very well equipped and clean. The air con is great! The rooms are satisfactory, the toilets also.

The hostel is not a party hostel, probably because Townsville is not what i would consider a party place! The atmosphere is average , sometimes it is very quiet. It's not the most sociable hostel we've stayed in.

The hostel is located a 20 minute walk from the bus station/ferry terminal, a 5 minute walk from the town's main street and Woolworths (the closest shopping centre) and a 20 minute walk to the Strand. This area of the town is quite beautiful.
