The staff were amazing. Everytime I walked in, I had a friendly hello from the guys at the desk. Any time I needed help with booking things they would sit down and give me the time to do it. Highly recommend the place. The cleanliness is the same as all other hostels. Great casual atmosphere!

Great location. Party hostel. secure location to park your campervan if you have one. only a few blocks from the port/ocean. Be prepared to party on Thursday for they have their crazy Pants Down party. Kitchen is large and clean with fridge. Rooms are secure. Sadly you have to pay 2 dollars a day if you want wifi (5 dollars on first day to 'activate). However, there is a nice computer with free internet in the lobby for anybody to use. Great music! There are a few long term residents there.


My stay at asylum was the best experience ever! Everyone is really friendly and you always meet new people. It is a bit of a walk from town but not too far. If i go back to Cairns i will go straight to Asylum!
