    Nice rooms, clean facilities, spacious kitchen and very friendly staff. Plus free breakfast every day :) Has a bar and a pizza place right in the hostel with cheap offers. Can be a bit loud on the weekends due to the bar that’s also open to guests not staying in the hostel.

    Perfect stay - and at an absolute bargain of a price. Greeted with warm smiles. One of the comfiest mattresses i have slept on while backpacking, great facilities. Bar has some epic local beer on tap (Coral Sea i think?). Staff were wonderful. Thanks for a great stay - I will definitely be back!

    This is probably my favourite hostel I’ve stayed at so far in Australia! It has everything you want from a hostel as a solo traveler. I’ve met so many good people so far, and the bar really is class.

    I could tell this hostel would have been great if Cairns hadn't emptied out of backpackers at Christmastime. The private room was comfortable and the common area/bar would have been good if it weren't almost empty. Cocktail jog delicious. Location a short walk from all the bars. I will have to come back in dry season.

    Probably my favourite hostel I’ve stayed in so far. Good vibes, very clean and close to pubs, lagoon, shops, ... I’ve met some incredible people there and extended my stay 3 times.

    Great hostel, sadly it was super quiet when I was there so not much atmosphere, but apparently when it was busy it was an awesome party! Clean rooms, big lockers, friendly staff, big kitchen, great bar. Pool is pretty small but still nice enough. Great value when booked online, on hostelworld I paid $13 a night but when I booked direct with reception before that I paid $19!!
