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
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.
