    I just loved Calypso!!! 24/7 awesome & helpful staff. Amazing people and atmosphere! Great common area with a bar. For free: fast wifi, delicious breakfast, bus to town, gym access, daily events (free food, pool parties, volleyball, live music etc.). Clean rooms with comfy beds and air condition. Enough showers, toilets and kitchens. Couldn’t have hoped for more, and I really recommend it for every backpacker staying in Cairns!

    Love the free breakfast, strong wifi, and gym passes! The atmosphere was very party focused which we didn’t like as much.

    A decent place to stay if you need a bed but I don't think I'd have wanted to stay longer than my 3 nights. The free shuttle bus to town was really useful as it's a 20 minite walk to anywhere in town. I found the staff rather unmotivated and a little standoffish - quite different to other Mad Monkey hostels I've stayed in. The free breakfast is brilliant! As for the atmosphere, I found that most of the other guests were not interested in socialising - not great for a solo traveller like myself
