    This is the second hostel I have stayed at in Cairns, and it is by far my favorite one in the city. The vibe is super upbeat, and it was extremely easy to meet people as a solo traveler. The staff are all really friendly, especially Keysen at the reception! The rooms are recently renovated and feature privacy screens on the bunks. My room was a bit messy due to the large number of long term guests, but otherwise I had a great time. I loved it so much I extended my stay! Can’t wait to be back.

    Have been here before and will definitely continue to come back to bounce. The rooms are comfortable and cleaned well every day, and the staff are a lot of fun. The bar has a great happy hour, but they close at midnight so you can still get some sleep. Within 2 blocks of most bars, Woolworths and the mall. Pool a bit chilly this time of year, but the Cairns winter is bomb. Good spot to meet friends to explore the rainforest and waterfalls, always plenty of people looking to explore.

    Me and 4 friends stayed here, the Hostel was lovely, clean and in a great location near the town centre. Only down side was when I booked online we booked a 8 person female dorm with a bathroom. The rooms cant be full due to covid but 6 people where allowed in this room. online it had said we would be in the same room as their was 5 beds available, when we arrived we was told only 4 beds in 1 room and 1 in the other and this couldn't be changed even tho we was all on 1 booking as there was full.

    I didn’t end up staying here but the blonde man who worked on reception was super lovely and helpful! This is a party hostel and music goes on to 12, so not good if you want to get an early night, but perfect if you want a good night out and sociable experience. X

    If you wanna party this is definitely your place. If you are looking for something else I won't recommend coming here.

    Great atmosphere, cheap drinks at the bar and a nice pool area. Free breakfast doesn't start until 8am, so you'll miss this if you plan to head out early for tours. There were quite a few long-term guests / staff who were mostly friendly and welcoming. Cleanliness of bathrooms needs improvement. Beds were comfortable but made creaking noises.

    Booked this place after reading all the good reviews and stayed during COVID-19. The hostel has dropped its standards drastically; bathroom shower was caked in BLACK MOLD, lock on the sliding door was falling off (a hard yank and you could probably pull it from it’s fitting), constantly smelt of tabbaco and occasionally m*******a (you could see guests smoking out their windows on the second story) and random trash/dishes spread out across the common areas (probably from all the long term guests)
