Absolutely brilliant hostel. One of the very best we've stayed in! Great owners, superb staff (Chris is the calmest and most efficient receptionist/booking agent I've seen, a massive asset to the hostel) and a lovely outdoor social area. The Weekly BBQ was fantastic, and a great way to meet everyone else. Best atmosphere at any hostel we've stayed at in last 6 months. Highly recommended!!

The location is further from the city centre than other hostels but it is right behind Cairns Central so you have easy access to supermarkets. The staff are amazing and super helpful!! The atmosphere is very laid back and relaxed but it is still easy to meet people especially with their nightly activities. This isn't a party hostel so if you are after quiet nights in Cairns this is definitely the place. The facilities are good and clean too.

I loved my stay at Dreamtime. It's quiet a small hostel, and it means that it's easy to get to talk to the people living there. Such a nice and homey atmosphere.

Staff could not be more helpful and friendly- nothing is too much trouble. Nice, relaxed, quiet hostel. A really comfortable stay. Not a long walk to supermarkets or the centre of Cairns. Would definitely stay again!

Really nice location, right across the street from the mall. A lot of kitchen space. Decent wifi, only thing that sucked was it blocked anything categorized as 'Entertainment'..so YouTube, etc.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Rooms, kitchen and bathrooms where very clean. Very helpful and smiley staff members. The hostel has a really nice relax vibe, and people sit down stairs and actually talk to each other rather than sit on laptop's which seems to happen in other hostels.

This hostel is like a home away from home. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is great. What makes this place stand out is the people in the hostehostel. Was sad to leave and would stay and recommend this hostel 100%

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Shay in particular was really helpful in getting both our tours and greyhound booked. Bed were comfy and there was a good ceiling fan to keep the room cool. Would recommend.

Beautiful hostel. The entire place was very homey and it felt like we were staying in a huge colorful treehouse. There were hammocks and low hanging trees everywhere, very lovely. Not very noisy at night (unlike Gilligans) but not extremely quite either. There were plenty of young people our age to hang out/go out with so no worries there.

We stayed for 2 nights in this hostel. The room was clean and the mattress was very comfortable. We had a very good rest. The staff were also very keen and helpful in recommending and booking tours for us. Overall, an enjoyable stay!

Amazing hostel. The only downside is that many websites are blocked.

It has a really nice courtyard where you can hangout and eat. They arrange different happenings every night and the staff is so good and will help you with everything in Australia. It's only a 7-10 min walk down to the esplanade. It's a really nice hostel, and I would stay here again!

I had a great time in this hostel, the place is lovely and you feel like home. The staff is very nice, all is perfectly clean, the atmosphere is great and cheerful ! I recommend this place ! Plus it's right in the center of Cairns, only a few meters from the mall.

Loved it thanks! Couple of things- bins in the bedrooms and bathrooms would be good. Also to have a broom/dust pan and brush in the kitchen for guests to use as the floor could get quite dirty in the evenings.

If you prefer a chilled out hostel, definitely come here. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the people staying fit with that. My room is lovely with a big en suite however all bathrooms here are great. The hostel's located behind Cairns main shopping centre which is useful. Staff are lovely and the movie/bbq nights here are spot on for me! Biggest gripe for me is the reception is closed between 12pm-4pm. Other than that I really enjoyed my stay and ended up extending for an extra week!

Excellent value hostel, very friendly and welcoming staff who are more than happy to help with any day trips or tours you'd like to do. Perfectly placed for access to Coles at the Cairns Central shopping centre. Great evening activities all week including films and fireshows. Highly recommended.
