Such a lovely backpackers and lovely staff. All the other guests are nice too. Room was clean and kitchens and bathrooms were far better than most I have been to. Beautiful garden area with hammocks (loved them).

Any other hostel in cairns has a better location and better services. horrible mattresses, filthy facilities including free spiders all over, surcharge in case you come back from an overnight trip instead of a discount as returning guest (that's why i moved to another place then), crazy fees for lockers. if they do everything possible to disrupt their business i am glad to help them with this review. oh, and i'll keep for myself opinions about staff at recrption. only FACTS here. not recommended


Kitchen not very well equipped (only one saucepan...)


Stayed there before that's why we chose it again. Small but friendly atmosphere & run by Dave & his wife who are most helpful
