This is the party hostel of Cairns. All backpackers should stay here at least one night but don't expect much sleep, its a young persons hostel for sure! good facilities but think its a complete rip off that if you are staying in the hostel you still have to pay to get in the Gilligans bar. good atmosphere and good place to meet people. situated where everything happens and near everything you need! didn't use the the desk to book excursions but heard they are very helpful.
This hostel isn't a bad hostel and great social scene etc but the facilities aren't as good as others. You have to pay a deposit for your plate, cup and cutlery rather than a plentiful kitchen of utensils. The wifi is only available on the top floor or bottom floor which can be a nightmare because it gets busy on the bottom floor with everyone using wifi and space is limited and the top floor is where the party is at so always quite busy. The staff however are really great!
this hostel was great if you wanted to meet people and make friends as it has communal seating areas including a massive bbq, a pool and a tv room. although people liked to party here ,it wasn't a party hostel per sae. the rooms were good and pretty clean. the kitchen is small but has everything you need and the bbq area has some hobs too. staff were great and although the hostel has its rules, they aren't there to restricts the backpacker. i would stay here again for sure and even recommend it!
The hostel was so friendly, a great place to meet other travellers in the large communal area, perfect location and generally clean. The rooms were slightly small but no problem as was out most of the day. Facilities were pretty good and even had a bbq guests could use. The i site was opposite and all buses (stray, kiwi, intercity, naked etc) all pick up and drop off outside the hostel. Would stay here again and would recommend to others. Thanks for having me:)
Great place to stay with a friendly and cosy environment. The staff were very helpful and everything was very clean. Great facilities and a lovely outside area to dine, read, chill or socialise. Large rooms and ok beds. No lockers available in the room I was in but reception are more than happy to look after valuables etc. Would definitely return if I came back to Picton.
Great hostel with great character. Great amenities, especially Netflix for when you've exhausted all sightseeing in Christchurch! Was so grateful for the lovely lady who checked me in when I was feeling poorly. She supplied me with extra pillows and was so kind. It was a friendly place but think some of the staff could make more effort to engage guests. I loved staying here and would definitely return if I was ever in Christchurch again. Thank you for having me :)
An amazing stay. Would recommend to others and would definitely come back! Thank you :)
This is a hostel you get what you pay. It's relatively cheap and it definitely has no frills. The rooms were exceptionally clean with good air conditioning but the bathroom facilities were not great (limited). Not in the centre but very very close to the MRT with only a few stops until you are in the centre of it all so location isn't a huge problem. No atmosphere or any great friend making opportunities but completely fine if you want something to cater for basic needs. Free wifi is a big bonus
its a great place to stay if you have a car and are going to Sea World, but totally innappropriate if you want to explore San Antonio as it is so far out.
absolutely brilliant! was only meant to stay for 4 nights and stayed almost two weeks. it was hard to make sure i moved on to my next destination!
