    I had such a lovely stay at Freedom Cairns, the staff were all super helpful and gave me lots of tips for where to go out and what to see etc. The rooms are completely spotless - with personal lamps, a shelf and a plug point next to every bed. The lockers were a really decent size and the beds were comfortable. I also loved the outdoor deck in the common area, so nice to chill in the sun! Location is also great, close to everything but quiet at night so you get a good nights sleep. 10/10!

    Great friendly staff. Showers were amazing. The stalls were roomy with big benches, hooks and great water pressure. Plenty of locker space.

    This hostel is a little bare but the location more than makes up for it, it's close to everything you want in Cairns. The staff are super friendly and helpful. The fans in the dorm rooms are annoyingly loud at night so if you can't sleep with the AC going I might recommend another hostel. The kitchen and patio are both huge and are the best part of the hostel.

    This was by far the cleanest and quietest hostel I stayed in in cairns. It doesn't have the long term backpacker vibe of other hotels. The rooms were super clean and decent size. Towels provided at no cost. Bathroom and kitchen were also clean. Free breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit and the staff even make pancakes! There's a nice balcony and common area and you can byo. Only issue is that they don't allow australians to stay in dorms so unless that changes I won't be back.
