    We went to Geckos because we needed an affordable place to stay, and it really exceeded our expectations! Peter is really helpful with any questions you might have about your stay in Cairns and the kitchen had everything you might need. We didn't use the pool but it looked very well maintained and the overall atmosphere in the hostel was friendly and relaxed. Great place to stay if in Cairns !

    Arrived early and was met by the owner who immediately helped me book a reef tour. Most appreciated! The bed was comfy and with the fans on I slept very well. While I was there someone outside the hostel got robbed which caused a bit of a ruckus but I felt quite safe within the confines of the hostel.

    The Manager was very polite and helpful. The place was very quiet. NO ALCOHOL was a winner for me. Location was awesome. It was not “class” but it was comfortable and got the job done.
