The pool was really refreshing and I loved having a personal little kitchen in my room! The air conditioning was really nice and the big lounge area made it easy to make a lot of new friends !
I love free wifi but it was pretty slow at times..
Very nice stuff.Great location
pancakes for breaky and night swimming in the pool
wifi was not strong so connecting wirelessly to check emails if the computers weren't free was difficult. Also some of the plugs didn't work.
Staff, location, bed, room, shower, pool, terrace, activities
Clean and tidy in room and common areas, friendly staffs.
Very very very poor connection of WiFi even in common areas
What makes the difference? A really cool recreation area (little too small when the hostel is bboked out) with poolbilliard and couches. The staff was very helpfull and friendly!!!!! The rooms were clean and had some very cool gimmicks like power plugs in the lockers, a small kitchen inkl. a large fridge in the room and some kind of cages on wheels for your belongings under your bed. They offered everyday a special like a free BBQ or very cheap or free little tours. The place is okay, it's not far from the greyhound station, beach and the Gilligan's party hostel. A very yummy and cheap Sushi is very close. The pool was very cool too!
Bad and slow WLAN. Kitchen was not so well and cheap equipped with cutlery, cups and plates. Especially during the main mealtimes not enough of all!
Breakfast was ok, consisted of toast, jams and a selection of cerial Wifi was strong Location was fine, just a few streets back from the waterfront rooms were a nice size, clean and all with private bathrooms, a small balcony, side kitchen unit, fridge and A/C unit. good size free car parking area Lockers with power points in the room.
Really helpful staff. Made you feel welcome. Nice that did have so that you could charge your phone in a locker.
That it seems like the blankets is not getting washed for every new person. Mine had stains.
24h reception Pool Location Facilities ( washing machine etc)
Dom room of 6 can be stink Too many Asians backpacker and they don't mingle
The staff were really friendly and helpful. The rooms were all clean and modern with air con which was a saviour in the heat! You have a fridge in the room and space to store dry food as well which was handy when the kitchen was busy. And the ensuite bathroom was lovely as well! You are also provided with a locker and under bed space. It was excellent - we would definitely return!
Nothing I can think of
location. staff air conditioning lounge
Almost everything! Especially a fridge and freezer in the room. And so much space in the room as well! Super friendly staff and clean. And met a lot of very nice people!
Missing an oven :) And perhaps they can make an enquiry of what kind of people that want to be on the room. My first night I was with only Asians, my fifth only women. I also heard about a 50 years old guy, sleeping with a bunch of party people. Oh and are the Wi-Fi problems. For the rest, really good hostel!
Staff is supet friendly and helpful The rooms are well equipped Cleaning every day Free trips and meals
Extra activities offered free of charge, the pool is amazing, thank the lord for their great air conditioning. Nice staff. Clean and homely.
Wifi almost impossible to connect and stay connected to,
great event!! for example bbq party, pancakes day... and 24 hr reception, free take baggage!
The room,the common areas,the friendly staff, everything was good
Central location, no more than 6 beds per room with their own bathroom & toilets, large deck for relaxing, swimming pool, breakfast included.
Wifi did not work well
The free wifi, free breakfast, you can use the pool for free..
The hostel arranged free outings, free movie nights and barbecue for the guests. locally placed only 500 meters to the promenade and the mall 250m. Ca. 24 hours reception.
Some beds are placed under the aircon so if someone has to sleep there it had to be off.. and in the tropical cairns it gets pretty hot an sticky.. because of the high humidity..
Common areas, kitchen, breakfast included, ventilated rooms, location.
Nothing terrible, but it would be good if it has more common bathrooms.
Bare enough to keep the cost down. Clean pool, friendly staff, clean room with private bathroom, good tour desk.
great and friendly staff, good organisation! And a top location!!
Good good good, everything is awesome!!!
I hope can turn on Ac.
Nice vibe in general, comfortable lounge area. Tea, coffee, cereal available in the morning. Free barbecue Sunday night, what's not to like. Good value for money!
