Asylum Cairns provides free airport pickups, free high-speed wifi, and allows you to BYOB! We’re one of those rare party places in Cairns where you're more than welcome to bring your own drinks! We even have a large fridge dedicated in reception dedicated to your booze! Asylum Cairns welcomes you with open arms. We make an effort to know each and every guest by name and ensure that you get to know your fellow-inmates. If you want to make friends, have fun and laugh lots, this is the hostel for you. Asylum Cairns is an old spacious hostel with a true backpackers feel. Go elsewhere if you want an impersonal hotel style hostel! Asylum Cairns is not for the unsocial, clinical, sterile and those with way too much money. You will have loads of fun at the Asylum and save as much you can. It is a good place to make many friends. Do not come here if you are not social and wish to be left alone. The atmosphere is far from sterile and definitely suitable for first-time travellers who may find it hard to make that first move in making new friends. We are focused on including everyone in our activities so that you leave here with making at least 1 new friendship along the way!
