    Superb

    Great hostel, stayed in a 4 bed en suite - really spacious room with lockers and clean bathroom. Had an issue with the tap in the bathroom which wouldn’t turn off - we contacted reception straight away to let them know but nothing was done in our 3 day stay so it was constantly on. Bar at the hotel was really good, really great atmosphere and lots of space. As they tell you on arrival it’s extremely noisy in the room from the bar, but earplugs sort this out! Free meals was such a good bonus!

    We stayed here for 4 nights in total, there was a “free” dinner each night although it was a very small portion and tbh every night sucked tbh however the beds are comfy enough, the place is clean enough, the WiFi is good and they have a tv room too all until roughly 10 o’clock when everything gets switched off we enjoyed our stay however some of the staff aren’t the friendliest, one dude in particular was very rude, thought he was a ticket not sure why though as he wasn’t built or “fit” lol

    This hostel is extremely noisy, they do make you sign something to say you acknowledge this when you check in but I had no idea quite how bad it would be! However the free dinner does make up for some of this... Overall, good place if you want to party, not so great if you’re wanting to get some sleep so you can see everything Cairns has to offer during the days.

    Good

    The Jack was ok. Many of the people staying there were doing work for accommodation or staying long term. The kitchen was awful as there were no plates, utensils, or cups. It was also SO LOUD, I knew that it was above a bar beforehand but it was above and beyond loud until early morning on the weekend. Free dinner was a plus and was what made me stay for my entire visit.
