    Great place if you are looking for a chill and friendly atmosphere with an awesome vibe. A little out of town but they run frequent shuttles and will do anything they can to help. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at along the east coast!

    After coming from my 3 months of farmwork this was the most perfect hostel to unwind at. It’s like a little mini/hippie resort. The staff are so friendly and helpful, it’s very clean, they play relaxing/chill music all day, and host a couple food events during the week which makes it really easy to socialize with others. It’s a 15-20min walk to town which I personally enjoyed to get some movement in and gives the hostel a more local feel. Loved this hostel and would absolutely stay again!

    Booked in with my partner into the deluxe double. Very impressed. Private kitchen and bathroom shared with one other room. Nice option to sit in own private area away from kitchen/seating area. Very clean throughout. Code access to hostel for security and gate locked up when staff finish shifts. Hostel very chilled and quiet so I would say this is great for those wanting a more quiet set up. Great vibe and staff extremely helpful! Owner did a BBQ night and games - wonderful evening! Recommend!

    This place feels more like a tropical retreat than a hostel. Hammocks in the trees, pool table, a lovely swimming pool, plenty of common area and outstanding staff! 10/10 would recommend. We’ll definitely be back!

    I loved staying here! Staff is very helpful with organizing just about anything you have in mind. The common areas were clean and above all just super relaxing. I loved spending my time by the pool or in the smoke shack chatting it up with other backpackers. It's a bit of a distance away from the city but fear not! The hostel organizes a shuttle service quite frequently so getting around is really easy. I wish I had stayed here longer! I'll definiley be back next time I'm in beautiful Cairns.

    My friends and I had a great time at this hostle and extended our stay by three days. It's got a great chilled out atmosphere and is very social. The social areas are clean, friendly and a great place to meet people and chill out in the evenings. The hostle lays on a free bus shuttle to town which was very useful. Staff are super friendly and always ready to give advice. Would 10/10 recommend anyone to stay at this hostle

    Really lovely, calm vibe with lots of uplifting art and decorations throughout a converted old home. My only real dig on the place is that it's not convenient (or safe at night) walking distance from most of the attractions in Cairns city. They do have a reliable shuttle that runs to city center hourly, which is great. I participated in midweek pizza night, which was a great value and opportunity to meet others. Staff all friendly and helpful.
