Nice place.


Amazing place! Keep it up!


We booked to stay here 2 nights, we've now been here a week and still dont want to leave yet! The staff are great, really accomodating and the atmosphere is amazing!! The rooms are basic, what you expect for the money, but everything else makes up for that. Would reccomend it to any travellers!

Very cheap hostel but still reasonably clean and not far from town centre of Cairns. Staff are very friendly and want to get to know you as a person and not just a customer. Facilities are ok - nothing amazing but nothing to complain about either.


Brilliant stil here after 3 weeks best hostel staff I've met


If you like partying this is your place and the staff is the best ever!


really friendly staff would happily stay here again

Loved this place and the staff. They were so friendly and helpful especially when I needed an early check-in....thanks Joe! For the price you pay it's great value for money and would definitely stay here again. Some of the rooms need a bit of tlc but it was nothing too major. :)
