Defiantly stay again! One of the best hostels up the east coast!

One of the best hostels of Australia. A bit at the edge of downtown Cairns but it's an easy walk. Great staff amd reception they organize and book everything. The movie nights are legendary as well the atmosphere. It ain't feel like a partyhostel which i like.

Great stay overall. Nice big rooms and a really chilled atmosphere. Pool area wasn't great and the kitchen was tiny, there was also a cockroach in our room. Reception closes from 12pm until 4pm everyday which is a pain! But despite this it was a really nice hostel.

This was a nice place to stay, it was a little far out of town for me personally (20-25mins walk to town). Other than that it was a lovley cosy hostel with outdoor seating areas and a cute sized pool. The staff were friendly but it seemed like the reception was closed more than open. The rooms were clean and the ensuit had a nice big shower. Free wifi is always a plus.

Best hostel I've stayed at during my 7 months in australia. Awesome staff but a small minus for charging for aircon.

Such a great hostel! Feels like a home from home with super comfy rooms, laid back atmosphere, great areas to chill out and great music in the courtyard. The dorm room I was in with en-suite bathroom was spotlessly clean and tidy. The staff were all so helpful and friendly and Erin on reception was really knowledgable and helpful with booking my trip to the barrier reef, car hire and other ideas for things to do and what was going on in Cairns. Best Hostel I've stayed at in Australia!

The rooms near the kitchen are in the morning and in the evening loud if people start cooking.

Nice place. Staff members were nice and very helpful, the swimming pool is small but perfect to get refreshed after a day of travel, and the patio is peaceful. The room was clean, that was a good find! :)

Wonderful place to stay. Bright coloured and cheerful rooms, a nice change from the usual grey and white hostel rooms. We stayed in the 6 bed dorm and were lucky enough to score the 2 single beds in the adjoining room, so we had some more space than the others. Couldn't get the aircon to work but the fans did a good job. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Great internet facilities and all free. Very quiet at night so you could easily get some sleep.

I stayed there for one night only, so I can't say much about it. The staff was helpful, but didn't mention, that the reception would be closed for lunchtime. I got kind of stressed, as I had left my luggage with them before flying further on. Luckily there were some people at the office, who could help me. Biiiig minus: you have to pay for aircon!
