I have been at Globetrotters for 3 weeks and had a great time so far, friendly helpful staff, so clean and tidy, nice chill area/ lounge, lovely garden and pool, comfortable beds, free night aircon, free wifi, free breakfast (toast pancakes and tea or coffee), free BBQ on Wednesdays and Sundays and only a 10min walk to the city centre......

Globetrotters is definitely the best hostel I've stayed in so far! It's super clean & all the staff are really helpful. They do a free BBQ twice a week and free breakfast every morning :D The hostel is so relaxed which is great if you want a break from partying, but it's also only a short walk to the centre...

Globetrotter's was the first and only hostel I went to in Cairns, and it quickly became my favourite hostel I've ever been to. It is extremely clean and they have people cleaning at numerous times a day making sure it is always spotless. They have kitchens you can use for cooking and provide you with kitchen sets. Free wifi is...

Can't say enough good things about this hostel. I spent a little over two weeks here and had no complaints during my whole stay. Very clean, very friendly environment, great wifi and even free breakfast and free BBQ twice a week which helps save some money. Very laid back environment and lots of places to chill or meet new friends....

The people who work there are very friendly and helpful. Good wifi is a MUST! in difference with others hostels where you have to pay...

I absolutely love this hostel and probably one of my favourites in Australia. The staff are so friendly & helpful. The rooms are clean, and comfortable. The people who stay here are all very welcoming. This is a great place to stay to have a laugh and relax especially if you are a solo traveller wanting to make some friends!

I really enjoyed my days in this hostel in Cairns. I even extended my stay for one further day. As I stayed in a single room I can't say anything about the dorms. My room was fine. It was clean and functional. Compared to other hostels, it is nice that you can get your own key for your box in...

This was the second hostel we stayed in in Cairns and by far the better of the two! It is a chilled place where you can just relax and hang out and meet new people. The rooms are clean and comfortable and each bed has its own little space which we really liked. The manager Nick was awesome, really friendly...

This is the best hostels I stayed at coming up the east coast. Not a party hostel so perfect for a good night sleep. It's clean and very cozy. The staff are friendly and the free BBQ and pancakes for breakfast are a definite bonus. Would definitely come again.
