More the party hostel, but one of the cheapest in Cairns. If you like partying thats the place to go to and you will enjoy very moment. If not, enjoy the low price. The kitchen is huge, but some equipment is missing. The four bed dorm was okay and the a/c worked well.

The staff and atmosphere make this place. Not the cleanest place to stay but easily bearable and actually quite quickly begins to feel like home. Really enjoyed our stay here. Bar crawl is a must on Sunday night!

i paid $14 for this hostel and it probably literally is $14 worth of hostel. the bathrooms leave a lot to be desired, there is a grand total of about 2 forks to go round so can be quite fun in the evenings! reception offer brides of ice cream etc if you put up a good review so be wary if theres heaps of good reviews!

Despite being friendly, the staff was not very helpful. I spent a lot of time at the counter waiting for a solution to a booking problem. I booked a Mixed 8 People Bedroom, and they were all unavailable. They manage to put me in a Double Room with no aditional costs, but not before trying to fit me in a full bedroom (that was available according to the booking log), which was impossible, obviously.

I thought I'll be only here for 2 days, but ended up in staying 10 days :-) And I'm not the first and defenitively wont be the last! If u like to be surrounded of unique, lovely people u have to come here. Thanks to the staff and special thanks to Marvin. I really felt kind of *home*

Terrible hostel! Looks like a squat and is filthy dirty, looks nothing like the photos! You can get way better hostels for the same price - we changed as fast as we could! It's not even got that much of a party atmosphere of you're after that sort of thing!
