    One of my favourite hostels I’ve ever stayed at!! Fab breakfast, hostel events (especially bbq night, pizza night and beer pong), and super clean kitchen and bathroom facilities !! V social, met some lovely people and great drink prices at the bar! All staff super helpful-we didn’t want to leave. Only improvement would be to have lockers in the room. Nice location not too far from town with regular free shuttles. Thanks for a fab stay!

    The hostel has such a great vibe- so many people to meet and feels very inclusive. The outdoor area is beautiful and really nice to hang out in, and the rooms are really really clean with beds that are SO soft and comfy. The free breakfast is amazing as well- best Ive ever had at a hostel with fresh fruit and pancakes! Loved our stay and would definitely come again

    Really nice hostel with a great, chill atmosphere. It’s a little bit far from town and the water, but if you don’t mind walking 10 minutes or taking the shuttle that they schedule for you throughout the day then it’s very much worth your money! Free gym access, pool, comfortable beds, and nice showers made it one of the best hostels I’ve stayed at!

    I only stayed for a night but it was such a relief to get out of Giligans. This hostel has a much better atmosphere and their staff are really lovely. I would highly recommend staying here and the free bike use was the cherry on top.

    Can’t say enough great things about this place! Totally exceeded my expectations. Super clean rooms and bathrooms. People and staff are very friendly! Brenden makes great pancakes and the kitchen is spotless. The manager, Dan, is so friendly and makes you feel welcome. The walk to town or anything really is like 15 minutes, a little away but still a beautiful walk down the esplanade. Got restful sleep every night. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!

    When I couldn’t extend my stay any longer at my first hostel, I transferred to mad monkey for a night and honestly I wish I had stayed longer. They upgraded my friend and I to a 4 bed dorm because they only had one spot left in a 8 and 6 bed dorm. The hostel room was SO nice. Clean, air conditioned, barriers around the bed for a bit of privacy and comfortable beds. Idk how they manage such nice facilities with how cheap they rent the rooms. The only downside is that it’s a bit far from the city.

    Very Good

    I loved this hostel but had to leave because it was too far from the centre of town for a solo female. 15/20 min walk didn’t sound too bad to me but cairns is a scary place especially at night. There is a shuttle but not late enough for if you were going clubbing. Other than that can’t fault anything!

    One kitchen for the whole hostel with a load of useless hobs, with loud music playing constantly. Makes for some stressful cooking. Once you've eaten you have nowhere to go except the other side of the room where the music is still loud and constant. Want to hang by the pool? The music is loud and constant. It's ok though, it masks how hungover and quiet everyone is all day! The staff are friendly and nice. There is one bike to borrow for the entire hostel (because the other one is broken).
