Just wish they had lockers in the rooms.


This hostel is very prison-cell chic, old fashioned decor, however the staff are always very helpful and welcoming. It doesn't matter that the hostel is a little basic as you are hardly ever there, so many day trips available in Cairns that you'll be out most of the time. Free Wi-Fi in main area is wonderful, they could do with cleaning the fridges as the hostelers don't and it was a bit gross, but Kitchen is well equipped and staff always clean after everybody has made a mess. Good hostel!!

Good location. Transportation to port was a plus. Pool needs cleaning. Bathrooms were always clean.


Great place, not too far from town (maybe a 10-15mins walk) they have a shuttle to town too. The rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms. Great little kitchen, no oven but top stoves. They have movies playing almost every night, and did a $5 BBQ one night too. The staff were great, with a night team for early check outs (when heading for tours/airport), also they were happy to help book tours and transport for you. Nice ppol and outside seating. Plus free wifi. Would recomend.


Very basic but fine for what you pay. Only rated security as poor because we didn't get given a key for our room, so we couldn't lock it. It was clean though.


Amazing hostel! Very clean and the staff was so helpful and friendly!! Only a 10 minute walk to the shops. Would definitely recommend.

Had a lovely stay, very clean and good well stocked kitchen. Only downside is it's a 15/20 min walk to town and the nearest supermarket. It's not a party hostel but a good chilled vibe. They had a free reptile show while I was there which was awesome. No lockers in room but that's pretty normal for oz.


Loved the atmosphere and the lay-out of the hostel. It was like a slice of paradise. Didn't mind the 15 mins walk to the CBD, but great to have the courtesy bus aswell. Fantastic service from all staff....they were very friendly & helpful. Great that an airport courtesy shuttle was available to & from....made life incredibly easy. Thanx for an enjoyable stay, the kids loved it too. Shame it wasn't longer for us. Cheers, Annie.

There's free Wifi here and it's actually really good! A movie's on every night at 6pm, a free pool table. Good fun.
