    Everything is as it should be. The hostel was very clean with staff who were helpful, friendly and competent. It had both chill out and social areas. It is set up in such a way that you can easily interact with other guests. The Wifi works really well with about four channels to choose from. There were two kitchens with adequate fridge and shelf space and lots of utensils. There were a lot of bathrooms and toilets. There are two shuttle buses to get you where you want to go.

    Gorgeous hostel. Only downside is a little far from town but the free shuttle bus and free bike hire helps combat this! Super friendly people and a lovely chilled atmosphere.

    Very laid back atmosphere. It's a little out of the way from the hustle and bustle of backpackers village, which is good and bad. Great place to stay if you are looking to chill.

    Great atmosphere and decor. Good price with great recommendations for activities (the reception is absolutely wallpapered with pamphlets). A free shuttle downtown 9 times a days help compensate for the uninteresting location. Cairns is just a hub for day trips anyway. The buildings are old but the rooms and washrooms are clean. Kitchens are functional but smaller than some. At 30 I'm rather over hostels but I would recommend to anyone in their 20s looking for a warm human atmosphere.
