I stayed in a room with a double bed. All was very clean. Bathrooms always clean. Pancakes each morning were nice. The staff was amazing. They helped me book the best trips that made everything so worthwhile.


Improve the Internet connection as it was a bit poor in my opinion

Average hostel, pancakes in the morning are a really good idea, not much atmosphere however and didn't meet people very easily. Wouldn't stay here again but it is fine for a bed for the night!


I enyoed to stay in YHA and will recommend to others as well.

Had a great stay here, people were lovely and the place was clean and has a pool to cool off in, which you need in Cairns! Aircon was great too!


Stayed here for 4 nights - in general the place was clean but the ladies toilets did have a slight smell for the entire time and the kitchen was an absolute tip at all times despite the best efforts of the reception staff. Disappointed with this YHA as in the past they have been very clean, comfortable and relaxing.
