Rooms nice, lots of showers and toilets. Free airport shuttle good. Shuttle bus to town good service.
Location isn't great-but shuttle provided for daytime
Staff super helpful.
Very loud music and partying on weekend nights.
Bus into town
Cold tiny showers, staff weren't sure of booking and payment.
Staff were great, location was great and facilities were great. This place is certainly recommended!
The rooms near the pool were a bit noisy, but it was a Saturday night so I can't complain too much.
room location, cute area, bar super friendly and helpful staff
kind of far away from city centre for lazy people like us :)
The bar !!
Almost everything. Kitchen area is extremely dirty so are the toilets!! The Dorms are not cleaned!!No lockers in dorms!!
I liked the bar and the evenings in the hostel. Every night they offered a different activity.
The bathrooms could be more clean but it was okay.
Bed was average
Staff couldn't have been any more friendly. Entertainment was good fun too. Plus quiet hours after midnight are respected. Would recommend definitely. Plus wifi is free in the reception area.
Nice staff, clean room, good price and free wifi in reception area
Very very loud drunk disruptive guests at all hours of the night. If you want a good night's rest, maybe not the best place.
Nice walking treck around.
$ 5 for a barbecue - ridiculous portion.
Very friendly and helpful staff Relaxed atmosphere Free fast wifi Good value for money
Aircon loud and leaked a bit Sheets were clean but marked
The free bus to City & to Airport...
Some drunk boys on weekend night made a lot of noise at night time causing disruptions in sleep...
Air con was good Flight arrived late and checked in at 1am with no problem It was a fair price Staff were friendly amd helpful
Sheets were gross (old and stained) We didnt bring towels so were unable to have a shower (we only stayed one night so that was not a big problem Got woken up at 5am (after a very late checkin) by the couple next door having loud sex (walls are thin)
Friendly staff, the bar Iside the hostel Was very useful, lots of shower and very clean Rooms.
Very far away from cairns central
the people were all really friendly and they have a courtesy bus that will take you into the heart of town from 7am till 11pm
the showers were a little cold
Location was good because they provided a very good shuttle bus to and from the city
I felt that it wasnt very clean, in my room and the kitchen facilities.
Superfriendly staff, help everytime. Reception is nearly every time available. The rooms are clean and everyone us friendly. Wonderful atmosphere, not too loud, quiet during the night, wonderful place. Especially the girls at the reception are fantastic, help everytime and smile. Perfect hostel, fun, and evety thing was good! The city shuttle druves every hour to the city and the pick up shuttle to and from the airpirt is a very good idea!
Friendly staff always happy to help. Comfortable beds. Free shuttle bus to airport and town centre. Fast internet in reception.
Thin walls and ceilings so lots of noise from other rooms and bar. Internet didn't reach the room I was in so I used it in reception.
city and airport shuttle available. friendly and advises availeble form the staff.
the high music till late at night and people loud speaking and singing during the night
Great welcome ! From the airport driver to the mate in the reception they were all very nice ! The hostel in pretty practicle too with the pool and the bar in the middle.
You can hear everything from the room (people talking from the room next door). Very thin wall. Didn't bother me but I could understand if you need silence to sleep that it could be annoying.
There were organised fun things each night. The staff were really nice.
We had booked a double room but ended up with a double with a bunk on the top so it was uncomfortable to sit up in bed and got in the way.
Being able to book activities through the hostel reception
Very very noisy and respectless with people's rest time. Loud music till late and lot of noise after music was over. The music was, hostel's music not any guest's
Excellent and very helpful staff! There was something fun going on every night such as drinking games, reptile shows, cheap bbqs etc. The people and music is quite loud (which is fun, people are happy), but it gets quiet after midnight. Showers and toilets were clean. There is about a 20 min walk from the hostel to the city center but the hostel have free shuttlebuses about once every hour. If I come back to cairns, I will stay here again!
Had some very tiny ants or something in the room.
I like the palm trees in this hostel, but in the lobby people are always singing and dancing even at night, so a little noisy
