Free shuttle bus to nightmarkets, almost every hour. Pretty sweet! Place is pretty rundown, but kept clean on a daily basis and you cant complain for 17 dollar pn!

This hostel is an amazing place that you can relax quietly.The pool and the beach volley are great. Staff are very helpfull! I stayed 3 days in a 10 mix dorm, and the place was big enought, maybe a bigger locker should have been great, or more space to tidy up clothes and everything. Not a lot of plugs also but bathrooms and toilets clean. 30 min by Esplanade by walk from the city, but there is a free mini bus every hour from the hostel. free breakfast : toasts and coffee/tea

Hi there, thank you very much for your feedback. We are stoked to hear that you had such a great time with us and hope to see you again some time soon! Thanks Nomads Cairns Management


Nice Nomads hostel, one of the better ones I stayed in during trip in OZ. A little walk from the main streets in Cairns, but didn't really bother me. Friendly staff and spacious rooms. Enough facilities.
