This hostel has a lovely chilled out atmosphere. Plenty of communal space, hammocks, benches, swimming pool, pool table. The rooms were a great size, clean and ours even had a good sized fridge in it which helped. The rooms offer air on for 3 hours at the price of 1 dollar which was great. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The hostel is just on the cusp of the town, so only a 10-15 minute walk to the beach. Really enjoyed our stay and would come here again happily.

HOSTEL SEARCHER LOOK NO FURTHER! Having stayed at a few of the best rated places in cairns I can say this is hands down the best around. Great staff, that help you get to know other backpackers and lovely rooms which help you feel much more at home than other bland rooms. Great evening events with BBQ nights, fire shows and of course pizza night. Some great offers for long stayers which you have to ask about. I can't thank the team enough for everything. A real credit to the hostel industry!

One of the remaining "real" backpackers locations on the entire planet! Such a cosy and relaxed atmosphere, it is so great to stay there! The kitchens are clean, the bathrooms are spacy, the rooms are very nice. What's more, the social program there is very nice, Aussie BBQ or movie nights, you will have a great time staying there. And the staff... so helpful and friendly plus, they can tell you about everything you can do in the region. Totally recommend it.

I have recently stayed at several hostels in many countries. Dreamtime Travellers Rest is among the best. The staff were friendly and helpful, the atmosphere relaxing and the room and bed were clean and comfortable. The location is near the train station and a major shopping mall with the beach, cafes and restaurants an easy walk away. With movie nights and other special activities, I enjoyed every minute.

Super friendly and helpful staff. Great atmosphere and really quiet and relaxed but if you want to go out you will also find people to party with. Rooms are clean and facilities are in good condition. Would definitely stay there again.

Front desk guy (Chris I think) was very helpful. Hostel has potential to be great. Cute property. Decent size rooms. Free wifi (iffy but ok) and towels. Quiet. Decent location right near cairns central mall. But in my first two hours in the room I killed a roach, two Mosquitos, and two moths. It's not an enclosed building. Things are all outdoors and there are no screens on the windows which is a big problem because bugs come on. also need something by the door that blocks roaches from entering

Cleanliness could have been better and I found a cockroach running around in the hallway but the atmosphere was good and it's a good place to meet people and socialize.

Dreamtime wasn't to far from the main bit of Cairns. My Boyfriend and I really enjoyed playing pool and having a few beers whenever. When we had a flight at 7 that night, they let us leave our bags and use the wifi and computers while waiting for the bus to pick us up! It was great!

Nice hostel, friendly staff, location is ok. Can be a bit noisy if you sleep close to the kitchen and main shared area. Kitchen was ok, not very clean, pots and pans were underaverage.

This is an incredible hostel. It's in a fantastic location, a quick 10 minute walk from "downtown" Cairns and a 15 minute walk from the waterfront. It's right next to the train station, a shopping mall and Target. The facilities are excellent, it has a huge covered outdoor patio area with rough-hewn wood furniture and surrounded by gorgeous plants, with nice rooms and bathrooms. The staff are the best part, however. So friendly and helpful with everything about my trip. One of my fav hostels.
