Reef Lodge Backpackers in Townsville is not a party hostel, we pride ourselves in being a quiet and clean property were you can chill out and relax. We cater to international tourist as well as the domestic travellers looking for clean and quiet cheap accommodation in Townsville's most centrally located backpackers hostel.

This way people trying to get some quiet time, can relax, take it easy and get a good nights sleep.
Reef Lodge is an older style hostel and was built back in the early 1960's and largely catered to the Stevedore wharf workers that travelled to Townsville for the seasonal work each year leaving behind families and friends for up to 8 months to work loading and unloading ships in what is North Queenslands largest port. These workers would travel from the likes of Brisbane and Melbourne and stay at what was then called Carmen House, named after the daughter of the original owner who built a large portion of the current buildings on the property. Later in the 70's and early 80's there was a change and the managment moved into a new direction which was the backpacking market when it was in its infancy. In the 90's the property was sold again and was not well looked after and then in 2001 was purchased by the current owners who have spent many years refurbishing and making the Reef Lodge what it is today. Well featured in many on-line and printed review books including a high recommendation in "The Lonely Planet 2013 Townsville’s best hostel " and "Backpackers Ultimate Guide" with a 4 star ranking.
We have many combinations of accommodation from Private rooms with an en-suite, Double Rooms, Twin rooms as well small 4-bed dorms and our larger 6-bed and 8-bed dorms.
We understand that most of our travelers are looking for a fairly quiet, laid back environment so we ask that people settle down after 10-30pm and take the party to the clubs. This way people can relax and get some rest.
