    Superb

    21 Nov 2018
    The service was great! We were upgraded to a double bed room (we are a couple) instead of a 4 mix dorm bed that we booked. Staff is very nice, dinner is for free and very good. We had a great time!

    Superb

    Great hostel with chilled vibes and good rooms. Me and my friend even got an upgrade which meant we had a private room in stead of a 4 bed dorm. The hostel has a big balcony where you can eat and dinner in the bar downstairs is included every night. Don't expect haute cuisine, but it's perfect when you don't feel like cooking yourself in the Cairns' heat.

    Great location. Only issue was the a/c would shut down in the middle of the night and not turn back on for a few hours. Would stay again though

    Very Good

    20 Nov 2018
    Location was really good, free dinner every night was handy too as we saved a bit of cash this way. Some of the rules were abit odd, not allowed out on the veranda past 10pm/the tv was shut off automatically at 10pm because of noise but most nights big groups would come back at 2am or later and shout and scream for ages without the night security telling them to go to their rooms or be quieter. There were free events downstairs in the bar a few nights a week which were good too.
