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.

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.

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!
