    Fantastic stay in the Dreamtime hostel. Really relaxed atmosphere. Great music. Nice and simple breakfast with tea and coffee. We arrived late so the receptionist left our key in the safe. We stayed 2 nights and stored our bags whilst we were on a trip to the Reef. Would definitely recommend to anyone to stay here.

    Such a cute friendly hostel! A bit far out of cairns central but still only bout a 15min walk into the town. The staff are so fun and helpful - gabs I’m particular really helped us out, recommended a fab tour day trip which made our time there even better! Would definitely recommend and come back!! X

    Me and my travel partner stayed here for one night. We talked to one of the managers Mark a fair bit. He was incredibly friendly, funny, helpful and all around a great guy. He did his job beyond good. The atmosphere here was quiet and chill, if looking for a party hostel, this isn’t the place. The air conditioning in our room didn’t work. Other than that it was such a great hostel. Definetly recommend. Definetly would go back.

    Great hostel to chill and sleep, reception lady super friendly and helpful (name forgotten sorry) very quiet place and older guests/ couples great to escape the party... the aircon is annoying it’s 1 dollar for three hours but above someone else’s bed so goes off in the night would rather pay and have a remote ... only 3 beds per room which is awesome and next to cairns central for buses and amenities

    I enjoyed my stay. The staff was great and gave me an excellent recommendation for which boat to go scuba diving with! The fuse for the lights and fans in my room blew twice during the 3 nights I was there. Staff was great and fixed it right when we told them. Air Con is $1/3hrs, unless you want to wake up in the middle of the night melting, make sure you put at least 2$ in before going to bed 😀

    Nice hostel, Gabs was remarkable at the front desk, she was instrumental in helping me book a couple treks onto the GBR. Nice facility although the fans didn't work well in my dorm room. Nice pool. Handy location, across from the train station and close to the huge mall (you walk thru the mall to get to the main part of town).

    Staff were super helpful with organizing day trips. Location was near the waterfront and transport links. There were cockroaches in the room and kitchen (although this is probably to be expected when the hostel is right next door to the rain forest. Overall we would chose to stay here again.

    It’s nice athmosphere but the sheets smell like they haven’t been changed and the facilities lack basic things like: hooks to hang clothes in the shower or soap in the bathroom. Kitchen is not well equipped and old and dirty. But Staff is friendly and location is great
