I really loved this little 'resort'. Rooms and ensuite bathrooms were very clean (bed was very comfy) and I was pleased to find the same in the separate toilet/shower block. Staff were very down to earth, drinks were reasonably priced, pool was great. It's really a steal of a stay for their more than reasonable prices! I really can't fault... More

I was on a roadtrip an needed to stay somewhere nearby Rockhampton. I'm so happy that I choose Emus Beach Resort. It was a great stay after a long drive. With help of the people at the frontdesk I had a great stay. They advised me to go to the Fish&Chips restaurant, that was great! In the morning I had... More

Easy place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to come and go from. Easy going staff. Everything worked well but don't expect any frills or luxuries. Much as you would expect for a good quality backpackers.

Thanks for your review. We try and keep the Resort as clean as possible and the price as low as possible. We offer great service, but we don't offer the extras like tea and coffee or free wifi, as all those little things would bump the price up, and not everyone wants them. There's no point paying for something you... More

Stayed here as part of a tour group. I don't normally go for or like hostels but this one exceeded my expectations. Rooms were clean and big and the atmosphere was great. I would stay again and recommend it to others - it didn't really feel like staying in a hostel at all!

Turned up and wanted to book a dorm room and ended up with a whole room to myself for $28! Nice little pool, which was a bonus.. The receptionist (Beks) was very friendly and booked me on a boat to kepple island the next day.. The staff even made a delicious Thai green curry for $5..

Our stay here was nice. The complex is well kept and the quad room we stayed in was clean with ensuite. Nice pool area and generally a chilled atmosphere. Bar area seems cool as well with a happy hour. We stayed as backpackers so cooked for ourselves - kitchen really let the place down. Bins not changed for ages despite... More

This hostel was very good, clean large rooms with ensuite and balcony. Nice pool area, bar, common area with TV etc. Kitchen is not looked after well enough though. The staff don't clean up after themselves, hardly any forks, pots and pans are all broken with no handles, fridges are a complete mess with open cans of food and nothing... More

We stayed in Emu Park only for one night during our road trip from Cairns to Brisbane. The place is very nice, the rooms are spacious, and we had a good night sleep ! The common areas are clean, the kitchen is well furnished. It's a perfect place for backpackers!
