Very Good

solid hostel! Freezing rooms, air con super strong and you can’t try and change the temp yourself as you get fined so you have to get staff, which we did but then it just turned itself back on haha! you have to get personal cutlery from reception, massively busy kitchen literally all the time but that’s just a hostel kitchen for you pool area looked nice and bar nice to have on site quite out of central cairns, but there’s a free shuttle there and back twice an hour

The pool is amazing and the outside area is a really chill place to hang. They have a great happy hour! The kitchen is pretty nicely equipped although a bit small for everyone to cook in. Good showers, beds,... But the rooms are SO smelly. You are not allowed to open the window in your room and we were 6 people cramped together in a tiny room so you can imagine. Also stuff gets stolen, mainly from the main area where you hang your cooking gear/food. Happened to us and multiple other people.

Further from the city than I expected but they do have a free shuttle every 30 mins both ways so that’s not too bad. The staff was mostly very nice and helpful. I did have to wait an extra hour for check in but they let me keep my bags in the luggage room and have full access to the facilities just no room so I didn’t mind. Very busy and lots going on if that’s what ur looking for! Would stay here again :)
