The hostel is perfectly located, close to supermarkets, restaurants, shops, bars, the marina and the Esplanade. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The common areas are spacious and comfortable. The toilets are big and I never had to wait to take a shower. You constantly see staff cleaning rooms, toilets and the kitchen. But I have to say I constantly saw cockroaches in the rooms or in the kitchen, which wasn't very pleasant. And if you want wifi you have to pay for it which is annoying.

As a solo traveller, I do not recommend this hostel. I booked the mixed dorm room and had heard good reviews of Global as a welcoming and fun hostel. I checked in with a lovely girl on reception but after that, it went downhill. there were no lights on on my floor so couldn't find room well and the room was bright white with a single light and no windows, making it feel like a prison. Didn't even stay the night because of how uncomfortable it was.

It's a good place to stay with a big kitchen. Bathrooms could be cleaner but it wasn't anything horrible. The most annoying thing was the "no alcohol in the hostel" policy... meaning people drink in the rooms instead of the common rooms, which is pretty irritating if you are trying to sleep and aren't there to party. Cairns in general is a huge party city. The rooms are super cold too, if that's what your into. But kinda a party hostel, again good if that's what your looking for.

I had items of clothing stolen and shoes ... not what I expected to happen and thought it was a bit strange. I was in a private room with two of my friends which can only lead me to believe it was staff. The hostel is basic and the location is near the the main pool. The staff didn't help me with regards to my missing items and didn't seem really bothered. Wouldn't stay here again.

Enjoyed our stay despite the trampy girls bringing boys back. Kitchen was always clean as staff cleaned up several times a day. Room was a little messy and a little cramped but that's as usual in Oz.

Nice hostel, comfortable beds, staff were helpful. Fairly clean but the bathroom smelt quite bad of urine and was a little tired.

Perfect location, it's a short walk to the Esplanade, Lagoon and all the shops. Toilets and kitchen are clean and there's plenty of room in the fridge. The room wasn't really clean but ok. No wi-fi. The staff was really friendly and helpful, would go again.
