Hostelworld says

Dreamtime Traveller's Rest was rated #1 in Australia and #2 in Oceania at the 2011 Hoscars and it's not difficult to see why. This hostel has a cosy, relaxed and home-like atmosphere with a pool and BBQ area set in a tropical oasis. It's located across the road from Cairns Central railway station and shopping centre, about 15 minutes walk from the Esplanade and the lagoon. Hostelworld guests say the staff are 'really friendly, helpful and full of information' and that 'because the common area is so nice, it's easy to meet people hanging out there’.

I wish I could’ve stayed here longer than one night. It’s a beautiful, quaint guest house with a peaceful atmosphere. Tim is very welcoming and happy to answer any questions. The rooms are basic but have all you need, the kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Nicely decorated and the communal areas looked super cosy. Also a small pool and a hammock!

great location, close to the mall and bus terminal. Tim the manager is amazing, always available, informative, and making sure everybody is having a good time. kitchens are stoked up nicely and the bathroom and showers feel like at home. doesn't feel too crowded, even when fully booked. one of the best hostels we have been at so far.
