Super friendly staff, always helpful for whatever matter. Really close to a mall, and not far away from the city centre (just take the shortcut through the mall). The events in the evening are nice as well - go for bbq on wednesday!!
It's my first experience with youth hostel and it is a really nice one. The staff booked the tour for us and gave a lot of useful advice. Keep up the good work, cheers !
The staff were so welcoming and helpful. They were great with directions and helping to book tours. This place is nicer than some hotels I've stayed in. Not sure it's really a hostel! I will definitely be returning with friends.
We're in our late 30's and found this hostel to cater for all ages. It's quiet and 10/15 minute walk to Espanade. Rooms we're very comfy, as you would expect some noise from other guests as they leave early to go on tours. Felt very safe. Will stay here again when next in cairns
A couple of rooms are close to kitchen when can mean they're a bit noisy
Very friendly and helpful staff.
Pillow on my bed was too thin.
Was only here for one night but wish I could of stayed more!
a beautiful ambient to relax, meet people, rest and discover the surrounndings of cairns. very helpful stuff and very nice outdoor area. i really recommend a stay there.
Friendly, helpful staff Backpackers is nicely setup, liked the middle court yard to hang out. Supermarket close by Comfy bed Clean Movie nights and bbq were fun
hot air hand dryer on other side of bedroom wall-very noisy when people realised they could turn it on. Wifi password change every 24 hrs+logouts every hour, very cumbersome for no reason I could see slightly far from esplanade, but still easily within walking distance
Friendly staff, great chilled atmosphere, staff had super knowledge of the area and can get you some fantastic deals on trips and airport transfers. Not a party hostel but a good time hostel with lots of evening entertainment.
It is a short walk from the center.
Great staff, very good internet, lots of common spaces
Free wi-fi (tough limited) Free computer use Very friendly and helpful staff. Good location. Coles is just straight across the street. City centre 10 min walk. Good clean rooms to sleep in. Absolutely fantastic
I liked that the staff were really helpful and always had time to discuss options with you and organise your trips. They had themed nights at the hotel...a good variety of options! Location good...near a main mall and only around 10 to 15 mins walk to the Reef Fleet Terminal!
My room near a toilet and kitchen and next to the outside seating area..so sometimes got a bit noisy but was manageable. Wifi kept logging out after a few mins...I understand for security purposes but logging back on was a bit of pain at times and didnt always happen too quickly!
I arrived with my friend but only I had a booking. two people just cancelled their room, we got their three bedroom (but we paid for a six bedroom) Very friendly people, everything is there what you need
Wifi connection in the room is bad
The fact it was opposite the train station was our prime reason for booking. It was most convenient as we were catching the train the following morning.
Was a budget hotel but that was definitely reflected in the price.
A relaxed hostel ideal for people who want to take it easy and unwind from the busy citylife.
The wifi wasn't optimal, but in the greater view of things that doesn't really add up to the pros.
Friendly and helpful staff Free Wifi Clean and cozy environment
The people at the reception is very friendly and they offer good tours and services. The atmosphere of the place is great, with a nice yard and cool style.
I liked the level of warmth and care from the staff, they helped my teenage son and I feel very welcome and comfortable. Generally the place has a great atmosphere, very relaxed, safe, quiet and supportive.
Very friendly people, assisted with boooking tours and renting a car etc. Luggage storage, free W-Lan, tropical style and decoration, a really nice place! Quiet and also good for older people (not 20 anymore...) who don't want to party
In my first room: no hooks to hang clothes
Friendly helpful staff. Clean rooms and facilities. Nice living spaces. Close to city centre and boat terminals. Good atmosphere. Also do underwater camera rental.
Stuff was very good
Good location away from the noisiest backpacker areas but still easy walking distance to esplanade. Very helpful staff. Cheap places to eat nearby with discounts from hostel.
Kitchen and bathroom not the cleanest, but still ok.
Great atmosphere. Friendly people. Clean. Comfy bed. Extremely helpful staff. Had a wonderful stay.
you have to pay for Aircondition but you got sealing fans so it´s fine.
The staff was really helpful and kind and there was a relaxed and nice atmosphere. Very good value for money.
