Staff organizes lots of activities and are very helpful. The common area was a very social place, but you could also get quiet time in your room if you're looking for that sort of thing; people were having fun, but it was not a ridiculous party place. Our only real complaint was the lack of internet in the room (it's free in the common area though) but that seems to be fairly common in Australia, now that we've been here a bit longer.


Great location, great staff, great atmosphere. Always doing events like Reptile Night (every friday). Would stay at this hostel again.


The staff what really friendly and helpful which matters the most. I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hostel to other travellers.

Very social hostel. Staff was very friendly and helpful, providing shuttles to the dock where the tours depart from and to the airport.


Staff tried to give me a sub standard twin room, which had no fridge or working sink. At first they claimed all the sinks don't work. They had a decent room but only gave it to me when I complained. Staff were miserable and not really bothered about fixing any problems. The hostelbookers profile is misleading as to the facilities available.

Just wish they had lockers in the rooms.


I expected the facilities to be basic but the room and bathroom were more dated than the photos on the website indicated, to be fair though the bedding was clean and the air con worked (if a little noisy). Staff were very friendly and the room was quiet to allow a good nights sleep. It is good value for the money we paid and only a short stroll into town, fine for a backpacking stop off

Pretty good hostel. It's not really in downtown Cairns (about a 15-20 min walk away), but other than that, everything was good value.


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.
