Nice hostel, bit too far from waterfront. My bunk bed squeaked and creaked all night, so this was frustrating for all in dorm. No freezer anywhere in hostel so frozen stuff I bought could not be kept. Was not impressed on having to pay $2 surcharge for a one night stay after I had been away for 2 nights on a tour after staying for 3 nights previously.
Small and friendly hostel. No internet though and is a bit far away from the city centre.
Cairns City Backpackers is by far the loveliest and friendliest hostel I've been to. Such a nice atmosphere and incredible people. It is definitely worth the money - clean and small rooms, great kitchens and all. Also you get the free meal at Woolshed, which, ofcourse, isn't the best meal ever but keeps you going if running out of money. I stayed almost two weeks and it was fun, fun, fun!
