    This is potentially the best hostel I have ever stayed in, the facilities were brilliant and everything was spotless. They offer free breakfast in the morning which filled me up for hours. The staff are so friendly and can help with anything (especially Casey), this is the only hostel I will stay in from now on in cairns.

    I loved my time in that hostel! It’s big, clean, quiet. Not for those who are looking for a party hostel, but for anyone else, it’s a great choice in a amazing location.

    The hostel is extremely close to the centre and everything you need is within 3 mins walk. It’s the perfect place to rest, have some time on your own and recharge. The facilities are great, very clean. The staff are passionate and very helpful as well. It’s been a really great stay and wonderful hostel experience.

    Absolutely love this hostel! I will definitely come back here whenever I’m in Cairns again. They are super clean, easy to make food because of it, they have common areas & rooms clean all the time, and it’s right next to everything great location. The staff was superb, super friendly, genuinely great people. I was traveling alone so it was really nice that they hosted events for all to join. By far the best place I’ve stayed in so far while in Australia. Thanks for the great experience!

    Hostel is very new and there were workmen still putting some final touches on things so needed in to my room a few times - this was not a problem though as they were very friendly. The hostel is quiet at night which was great as i was working, and the kitchen is very big and clean. Only problem for me was having a large bag to drag up 2 flights of stairs was killer - just be aware that if you struggle with stairs there is no lift available. One last suggestion would be a bin in each room :)

    By far the BEST hostel i have stayed at during my East coast travels. Great WiFi in all rooms, staff are friendly and helpful, facilities and location are amazing. Bring your own alcohol 👌🏼 only problem I found was a lot of plugs around the hostel don’t work, but minor issue. Slightly pricey but considering everything is brand new and you even get a fresh towel on arrival and free shampoos etc in bathroom it’s worth the extra cost.

    The staff were really friendly and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating. The hostel has just been refurbished so everything is brand new and very clean. The showers are HUGE! Which is always a bonus!! There is a nice chilled vibe and lovely balcony to relax, have BBQs, socialise etc. Overall a fantastic stay and I have already booked to stay again!

    Very Good

    We were underwhelmed with the hostel after reading so many great reviews. We “splurged” on the two bunk room, but it wasn’t very clean or worth it. Pros: Friendly staff, great showers, hair dryer/straightener, location. Cons: Room was not clean, especially for a brand new hostel. The floor always felt dirty, there were hairs on my sheet when I checked in, and a dried contact lense on my friend’s blanket. The free breakfast was also disappointing. Room did not have a bin or mirror.
