      The most fantastic place to stay as a backpaker in Cairns. A great atmosphere and the shuttle bus brings you everywhere in Cairns every hour around the clock. To recommend!

      The bar downstairs offered different types of events. The celebrating of the earth hous was really nice.

      The hotel was way too far from the town centre to walk. Also, that meant that a supermarket, cafes etc were far away. Also, the price is more expencive than for some hostels on the Esplanade, as we later found out. The hostel boasts a free evening meal. Unfortunately, the meal turned out to be a free SIDE in one of the pubs.

      we got to meet so many people and it was so cheap to stay, eat and drink there. all the staff were fantastic we'd defiantly stay there again

      great service, like it had a bus service as it was a lil bit away from the main strip.

      my aircon didnt work

      We only spent the one night there. We arrived in cairns late in the evening, after 10pm and were picking up a touring campervan the next day.The room facilities were great value for money, the only thing that let it down was that the floor covering smelt like sweaty feet !!! In the morning there was only white bread and mmarmalade or vegimite, not in any way you could describe that as being a continental breakfast. But as said for value, TV, fridge, tea coffee and ensuite all for 40 AUD was great value.

      Poor breakfast.

    • Older travelers

      Nothing. Absolutley hated every minute of our stay in this backpackers. Dirty, extremely damp and smelly. Grubby, filthy kitchen and facitlities. Don't keep rules. Extremely poor service - the breakfast was not included - just a loaf of bread and vegemite placed on the counter. The reception failed to inform www. Booking. Com that we had cancelled our future return booking and we had to pay $70 no show fee. .

      The smelly, damp and dirty room. Unclean facilities. No air- conditioning. Damp carpet in our room. Poorly maintained swimming pool. The promised breakfast - being in a luxury ensuite room- was non-existent one morning and a loaf of bread and vegemite and a teabag on the counter the next morning. The transit van was filthy. Very, very poor service - we cancelled our future return booking, being disappointed, but the staff failed to inform Booking. com. so we had to pay a no show fee of $70. Was definately not value for money - a total rip off.

    • Couple

      Friendly atmosphere - the long term residents weren't cliquey like they can be in some places. Something on pretty much every evening in the bar, but a fairly relaxed atmosphere - not too noisy. Good tour desk. Really good value for a private room.

      General cleanliness was good but bathroom blocks could probably do with being cleaned a bit more regularly. Wasnt an issue for us but hostel about a half hour walk from the centre - they put on a bus but it seemed to fill up quite often.

      The staff were friendly and helpful

      The room (dorm) smelt a little strange

      low price, swimming pool

      too noisy; ideal place for party-animals but not for just resting

      It is located very close to the airport, about 3 km, so, if you're on a tight schedule, it is a good choice.

      The rooms aren't very much to look at, but fairly clean. Oh, and bring some earplugs if you have trouble sleeping in a medium noisy environment. I did, and gladly so. One other thing I have to mention is that 20 dollars per night in a 4 bed dorm is slightly overpriced, to my mind at least.

    • Couple

      long queues at reception.one member of staff very unfriendly.window latch broken so couldn't shut window to keep noise out.air con controlled by reception.35min walk from town centre.something smelly left in fridge.stains all over carpets.

    • Group of friends

      Staff was quite friendly to arrange tours in the Cairns area.

    • Couple
      5.0

      Place for youngs not for family. Cheap and clean, every nights there is a fun event.

      If you stay more than 1 night, you have to keep dry your towels because nobody will make your room and change towels. If you ask a clean one, the staff doesn't give you.
