Best hostel in cairns Pros: Really friendly atmosphere, feels like a community and other guests genuinely care about you Hostel feels like a home. Eg the kitchen is a home style kitchen, contrary to the prison like kitchens in other hostels. The kitchen is rarely busy, feels like your own Good price, but need to book ahead Cons: Long term guests in room can make the room a bit smelly and messy. I’d suggest getting people to change rooms once a week to make them have a clear out
