Would not recommend this hostel. The location is good as it is near Woolworths and the lagoon. However, wifi is only provided in communal areas and is turned off at 10:30pm, if you want wifi in your room you have to pay extra for this. The rooms are very very basic, with just bunk beds and a shared fridge. The rooms and communal kitchen are also not very clean and the more long term residents are not very welcoming.

I had to deal with 2 people Amelia and a gentleman I think was Paul (not sure sorry), they were absolutely legends. Anything we needed were provided and they went beyond our expectations. When Paul learned that I was sick change our share room for a private one to make sure I could recover in peace and Amelia took care of our booking for the rain forest with such professionalism. I would definitely recommand this accomodation to anyone who would spend some time in Cairns. Thank you guys!!!

Love the place. Located in a nice area. Only part I wish they had lockers to put are stuff in. They do have a safe but I prefer it in my reach in case I need something. But over all if I did come back to cairns I would stay here. Another plus is that it’s near the water.
