    Amazing value for money and great hostel to stay in! Staff are very friendly and welcoming, especially Stacey who goes above and beyond for you. Lots of different activities during the week in the evenings to get involved with. Free breakfast also available and shuttle bus to and from town, although its only 15 minutes to walk anyway. Comfy beds too. All rooms need key access so good for security and also have bedside plugs! Would definitely stay again, no doubt.

    This is my second stay at Calypso, and I would come back again if I were in Cairns again. The property offers a lot - fast WiFi, use of a full gym, outlets for every bed, free breakfast, and a shuttle to town. Staff is friendly and helpful.

    Stayed there twice in a week, before and after a campervan trip. Shared dorms are a bit small and dark but what can you expect for $20. Private double room was lovely! Great atmosphere and really nice staff. Would definitely recommend to others :)

    Nice modern dorm rooms. AC is running all day. Breakfast with pancakes is awesome. Downside: There are no security locker. And it‘s bit too large area to get in contact with fellow traveller but it was off-season (not too bad)

    I stayed here three nights, 4bed dorm, was fine, good air con but no lockers in the room which I don’t like. Good big kitchen and breakfast was good but very little atmosphere during the evening and I found it hard to meet people here as a solo backpacker. The tree gym is brilliant though and There is a free bus to town but only town 20 min walk so that is ok!
