They have a great staff...they are very nice, charm and helpful... The atmosphere is very nice, all the people is very kind, also the security...everything!! Im very happy with my choice :)


Extrem lovely stuff, nice rooms with all furniture that u need, bed boxes, lockers, fridge, air con, fan. Really clean hostel with daily house keeping and bathroom cleaning. Nice kitchen and awesome socializing events (e.g. every Sunday free BBQ). Good and free wifi. Free carparking. No party hostel and a really relaxed facility :) I would recommend it in any ways!!!


Head a great time staying there. Rooms have refrigerators, a/c, shower and toilet which is great! The staff is very very kind and it has a cool chilled atmosphere.

The staff was great! so helpful and cheery all the time. Rooms were nice and spacious, but the kitchen area was overtaken by schoolies.


Cairns was awesome and the Northern Greenhouse suited my needs very well! Friendly staff and a great place to stay!


Great place to stay in Cairns if you don't want the craziness that is Gilligans. There is an awesome area to hang out and meet folks, a really nice pool, and clean big kitchen. The atmosphere is chill. The rooms are OK -- they have aircons but they don't really seem to distribute cold air around the room. So if you're in the bunk under the aircon you're freezing. If you're in another bunk, you're incredibly hot. Otherwise lockers for all your things, fridge and sink in the room. It's quite nice.


One of the nicer hostels I have stayed in. Good location and they have a tercel desk in reception so you don't have to go far to book your trips!


Great staff, so amazing atmosphere and people. Maybe not the best party hostel, but if you're looking for a great place too meet lots of great people this is really the place to be. Stayed here for like 10days, and the hostel is so worth the money.


It was really good hostel ever!


Rooms were super clean. Free wifi and free breakfast are amazing as well!


The wifi speed is too slow. I couldnt use it at all
