Friendly and helpful staff. However far from town and shuttle bus doesn't run that often. Mostly people who has been staying there for a long time.. No lockers to store personal belongings in.. And we booked a three bed room but ended up in a four bed room, but got to share it with a sweet German couple to it was fine. Rooms without ac gets reeeally hot at night.
I love this hostel! Location was amazing, literally 5 minutes from the beach and about 15 minutes walk from the centre. Free shuttle bus. Very friendly staff and very good value for money. I would stay here again and again!
Very nice, quiet and friendly hostel. Perfect place to go if you want to relax and book some tours. The room and bathrooms were a bit old and simple but they were nice and clean. Sarah from reception was really nice and helpful, she answered to all my emails when I had questions and helped us to book the best tours with discount prices!
The staff were very friendly and helpful when I arrived. A good hostel with local shops just around the corner. I enjoyed my stay at JJ's. The Esplanade that takes you in to Cairns Centre is also just a few minutes walk away.
Good place. Sarah was great about helping arrange tours
So pleased we choose Jj backpackers, staff went out of Their way to ensure our stay was a fantastic one, thank you.
Mixed thoughts- Tracey was lovely and really helpful! Rooms basic without lockers (despite signs warning you of theft) or glass windows (just mesh), only one toilet and shower per block of block of rooms (10 beds ). Good atmosphere and free shuttles and breakfast provided.
I've stayed in many hostels around the world and this is the best I've had the pleasure to stay in. From the cleanliness to the activities scheduled almost every night to meet other travelers, it's awesome.
