    Absolutely loved this place! The atmosphere is amazing! They have free yoga every morning and loads of activities! The staff especially Liam were so friendly and helpful! There’s an amazing beach volleyball court and free breakfast every morning! The value for money is unreal! Every night they have events if it’s bingo or open mic night! Also they have $5 meal deals every night! Couldn’t ask for anything more and at such a cheap price! Great air con and water pressure too! Definitely stay again!

    Lovely hostel. Facilities are clean and good enough- the sheets are a bit stiff and scratchy but not terrible. The pool and bar are excellent. Super fun hostel with lots of activities. The only thing that was a con for me was the location... it really is a bit out of the way. But free bikes, hourly city shuttle and shuttle to the marina every am make up for it. Also the esplanade is beautiful, make sure you walk along it. It’s right behind the hostel.

Free breakfast, free shuttle bus into Cairns, free bike rental, pool, billiards, ping pong, TV with movies etc, daily activities, travel agency in the reception, well equipped kitchen, just everything you can imagine

    Very big hostel with the oppertunity to meet lots of other travellers. Rooms are not too crowded, as I was in a room for six with only two other people. Never had to wait in line for showers or toilets. The bar, free breakfast and free bike hire are a nice touch. Overall I had an amazing stay!

    Very nice hostel with great facilities, far from the center but close to the airport. It's a good value at 16 AUD per night, but if they started charging more I'd probably stay at one of the other hostels closer to the center.

    Best value for money!! I really enjoyed the activities organized by the hostel, such as the yoga and trivia night. The hostel also provides free breakfast, 5 dollar meals at night and cheap drinks so you really get bang for your buck. The only downside would that it’s a bit further than other hostels but they provide a free shuttle service to and from the city (runs every hour) as well as to the reef in the morning, and there’s also bikes you can hire (8-10mins into the city).

    A very good place to stay! Bar area is brilliant. Location not amazing but ok, main downfall is that the kitchen is pretty rubbish, way too small for the size of the hostel and lacking cooking equipment and storage space

    Good hostel with great atmosphere - a little on the far side from downtown but close to the airport. Rooms fine and had key cards, although bathrooms were a bit iffy at times. Need more power outlet accessibility in the bunk bed rooms.
