    Perfect place if you want to be in the heart of the city and like to party. Everyone was so welcoming and nice, and I was surprised at how clean and well kept everything was. Would definitely recommend!

    The bed was very comfortable! The private rooms are right next to the pool for added convenience. Loved the bar upstairs. They have an event going on almost every night. They’re doing some improvements at the moment that will certainly only increase the social dynamic. Highly recommend staying here!

    Loved my stay!!! Bounce rocks. Lots of long termers but not a big deal if you're a friendly enough human. They don't bite. Honestly wish I had more time to spend there in Cairns. Special shout out to Janine, Alex and Logan for your help, expertise and burger order sharing capabilities. Y'all rock :')

    Great people, clean and cheap! A bit noisy at night so the ear plugs they provide sort that out. Would stay again

    Really good stay. Staff were very helpful. Very central to everything. Good happy hour prices. Excellent storage facilities and lockers within the rooms. Kitchen is poorly maintained. Dirty dishes everywhere and limited hobs working on the cookers, so everything takes longer to cook as all houseguest are waiting to use the hob.

    The facilities and location were great, but a lot of people who stay in the hostel long term while they work in Cairns ruined the atmosphere a bit, as they were cliquey and not great roommates

    1. Extremely noisy. The loudest hostel I have ever been to (I have backpacked to 60 countries and stayed in a lot of hostels). Terrible club music all day around until 12am or even later ... 2. People are terribly dirty in the hostel. A guy had hot McDonald at 4am in the room... the smell is terrible. People just threw their stuff everywhere in the room. The kitchen was smelly and gross. Breakfast was terrible.
