Good points: Situated in a quiete location, only a 15 minute walk along the esplanade to town. The hostel was calm and relaxing & the owners were polite, friendly and very accommodating. The bathrooms were cleaned frequently. Bad points: the bedroom needed a good clean - it was a bit smelly (damp smell), the mattress was totally worn out and there are no security lockers.

Thank you for this feedback and fabulous rating, we greatly appreciate this :o) We can change this mattress for you, the room will have been cleaned however we will make sure it gets a good airing too. We do have a safe for your valuables however it is in the reception area and not in the rooms. Thanks again for this, we wish you fun and happy travels.

Overall, a very good hostel. Clean rooms, very nice atmosphere, 24/7 supermarket around the corner and very helpful staff. Location is not too bad: a nice 20mins walk on the esplanade or free shuttle bus drops you within 5 mins in the city centre. However, a few things were really lacking and could be easily improved: hooks in the rooms to hang up clothes and wet towels, soap and hand dryer in the bathroom, extra shuttle bus run during the afternoon (2pm?) would turn this hostel into a 10/10!

For a place to sleep and clean up a bit, it was fine. It needs more toilets/showers. Free wifi only in the office area.

Hi, thank you for your comments, you only stayed with us for the 1 night arriving at 23.00hr so we are not sure you got the full JJ's experience? :o( We have plenty of bathrooms located throughout the hostel which are available for everyone to use. We offer a map and general information upon check in so that our guests feel comfortable and know what is in the hostel and around town, should they need it. We have just been connected NBN WiFi now which we are very happy about :o) Thanks again and we wish you all the best in your travels.

JJ's is the best. They have a wonderful vibe, and it is small enough where you start to see familiar faces within a day. The staff is both friendly and helpful. It is a short walk to the main part of town, but the walk is really pretty and they have a shuttle if you don't feel like walking.

This was by far our most amazing hostel in the east coast trip we did! They staff were so friendly, breakfast included, and the room was fab. Cannot recommend them more. They helped us pick and booked our GBR trip (down under cruise and dive) and gave us an idea of what and where to go in cairns! Just fab! Thanks guys
