Cabin my son and I stayed in was unexpected. Usually private rooms are in a building, but enjoyed the privacy. Table and chairs outside the cabin in the sun for breakfast, couldn't be better.

We had detached cabin with en-suite bathroom which turned out to have been cabin used by competitors in Sydney Olympics in 2000 and very comfortable it was too!

The hostel was good value for money as far as I can tell since I arrived late in the evening and left early in the morning. The dorm, the kitchen, and the shower/toilet were very clean and in good shape. The receptionist very friendly.
Sabrina K. (July 2012)
Great staff, free bike hire, very clean and calm atmosphere!
Silvia J. (June 2012)
overall the hostel is clean and equiped with everything you need but some facilities especially the reception (first impression was really bad) need refurbishment
Susan Z. (May 2012)
You need a car to enjoy this location. The little modular cabins are nice.
Christopher P. (May 2012)
We just stopped by for one night on our way to the Whitsundays, but it was a nice surprise that we actually got a separate cabin (we booked an ensuite double room). Looks like a caravan park instead of a crowded hostel.

If you're in the Beef Capital of Australia, don't leave without trying a Rockhampton steak (unless you're a vegetarian). Try the Ascot Hotel's Restaurant (which is an old, run-down hotel, now a hostel), where they bring you a chunk of meat of your choice (go for the eye fillet) and then you stone grill it yourself. A bit pricey for the location, but worth it. Kangaroo and croc meat also available.
