Rooms were very small which meant hardly anywhere to put my stuff, the top bunk I was on had no side to it and there was only 2 plugs in a room of 8 people. Apart from that the bathrooms were really clean and the kitchen area was tidy and was full of stuff to use. Friendly atmosphere here, perfect location and good value for money

All over a good hostel. Kitchen was good, rooms were okay. The AC turned itself of after a few hours, which was inconvenient at night. No free WiFi. The rooms and bathrooms were clean enough. Would probably stay again.

Much better than the facilities and cleanliness at global waterfront. Beds are also much better. Close to everything you need and a short walk to the lagoon. Cheap enough for what you need from a hostel.

They won't let me stay in this hotel, because I have kids and they let me find another place in the night.

In all the awesome hostels I've stayed at during my visit in Australia I found the Global Hostel in Cairns one the least desirable. The staff were friendly however the inside feels like a college dormitory. The rooms were incredibly small. I realize the staff have no control over what goes on in a room but my room was a rats nest with clothes and food boxes all over the floor. It almost felt like people were living in there and I could barely move around without stepping on something. 😒

It was really nice to stay there ... However the staff was very unfriendly and impolite which can be quite uncomfortable for travels from overseas with poor English
