    My personal experience at Mumma's Hostel Cairns has been a life changing experience in the most positive way, the staff are kind, the environment is tidy and the atmosphere is great! There is always an opportunity to help out around the hostel with volunteer work for accommodation, which has helped me so much. I love Mumma's Hostel Cairns, it's like coming home to mum every day!

    Had been warned against staying in private room here but was good value for money at one of the cheapest prices in town and great location. Bed was more comfortable than YHA and it wasn't dirty, except for the window sill and fridge that needed a clean. Pillow cases didn't cover the pillows and were stained. Plenty of bathrooms, & unlike YHA didn't have to walk through people to use toilet. I paid $31 more per night for YHA without a fridge or desk. Social, but I walked to Bounce, open to public

    At $10 a night, this place is super cheap so can't really complain much. But if you can afford to stay elsewhere I would! Hostel was really dirty, especially the dorm rooms, and dont think the bathrooms where cleaned at all during our stay. There seems to be a lot of long term residents whose stuff takes up most of the space in the dorms, and no space in the kitchen or fridges for anyone elses stuff! The staff where really friendly though and the lockers and curtains on beds where nice.

    Paid for a room at this hostel so I could get some sleep before my course in the girls only dorm. I was woken up at least every 20 minutes, and wouldn’t have got more than two hours sleep in total. There were three guys in my room at one point which was ok as they eventually left, but when I was finally getting back to sleep at 4am, none of the other girls answered; and a couple kept on knocking... They both insisted they come in, as apparently they saw someone with a knife. Felt unsafe

    I checked out as soon as I arrived. The place was very messy. Hard to even know which bed was mine. Looked like people had been living there for months with clothes and belongings everywhere, dirty plates in the room. Kitchen messy. No room to put my things. Very weird vibe there. Read the other people’s reviews as they were exactly what I noticed. Wish I read them before booking! just needed a one night stay somewhere in town but couldn’t wait to get out. It’s definitely cheap for a reason!!

    This is one of the worst hostels I have stayed in. Everything was messy and I couldnt even see the floor of my dorm room as there was dirty clothes everywhere. I even couldn't tell which bed was free as there was peoples things everywhere. I checked in and checked straight out!
