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.


It was surprisingly clean and tidy. The young people were very respectful and the entertainment was great we would recommend it to all those travelling to Cairns

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!


Beautiful hostel with a very relaxed atmosphere, had a wonderful time staying here. Very clean rooms and good facilities for a nice price.


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.


This is one of the best hostels in Australia.
