    Superb

    Very much enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Staff super friendly and sorted us out with a great couple of tours. The place looks basic at first but we were very pleasantly surprised at how clean the room/kitchen/bathrooms were. Facilities were great - free pool table/coffee/tea etc Lot of workers staying there by the looks of it - but everyone we spoke to was very friendly and welcoming. 15 min walk from city centre with free shuttles and plenty food/drinking places within 2 mins. Thanks guys!

    Only stayed here one night for airport transfer. Close to the airport and they offer 10 dollar transfer which was brilliant. 30 minute walk into town only downside. Staff extremely friendly and loads of facilities (swimming pool, pool table, wii, cinema room, free slushies, town shuttle bus etc) great little hostel! Would definitely recommend and will return if we are in Cairns again!

    While a slightly longer walk from the heart of cairns Castaways is definitely worth not to be overlooked. With fantastic staff and possibly the fastest wifi you will find in Cairns they welcome you with open arms. A perfect stay when you need to unwind and catch up on planing, securing photos online or maybe your favorite series on Netflix.

    Fabulous

    I enjoyed my stay here, it was really clean and the staff were really friendly and helpful. It is a bit of a walk into town, but they do offer a bus shuttle if you wish to use it. The only downside is that there was only 1 plug socket in the room. Although it had an extension lead with 3 sockets, for a room of 3 with multiple electronics each, it was a little annoying.
