I am so happy I switched to Castaways after a few days in one of those hundred bed hostels. People know your face & name. It was about a twenty minute walk in town, but if you can't handle that you shouldn't be traveling. It was super chill, but people ready to go out if you wanted to.

Great hostel, great staff, free WiFi, bit far from the city but they have a lot of shuttle bus runs each day so actually it doesn't really make too much of a difference, right next to shops/pizza hut/bottle-o - very quiet, definitely not a party hostel but you can drink your own alcohol and there are always people around at night to hang out with. Would definitely stay here again if I went back to Cairns.

The hostel is not central, you have to go around 20 min. It is very small with a great family atmosphere. Very clean and fast free wifi. I would come back.
