This is by far the best hostel I have stopped in while travelling around Australia. It is in great location to the city centre, with a scenic view if you walk along the sea front. The hostel itself is very clean and really well ran. It is ideal if you are working in Cairns as it is not a party...

A group of five friends and I have stayed at Globetrotters for five weeks now. This place is amazing! From staying in a large spacious eight bed dorm with no bunks, to spending time in the huge outdoor area with clean pool and hammocks, this place is somewhere you can really settle for a long period of time or feel...

This hostel is very chilled and relaxed, really nice pool and loungers and very comfy couches at the tv. This is by far the cleanest hostel I've stayed in Australia and staff are very friendly and helpful. Having access to free WiFi anywhere in the hostel is big plus! A must stay in Cairns :)

Planned to stay here for 1 week. Will be extending my stay here. Staff are so friendly. It is such a homely place. Rooms are kept clean. Beds are really comfortable. One of the best ideas is having lockers for your fridges. Nobody can steal your food. You get free breakfasts everyday then a BBQ twice a week. Has a...

Globetrotters is so different from your typical loud, unclean and impersonal hostel. It is by far the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in - bathrooms and kitchens are cleaned 3 times per day. Both privates and dorms have cold aircon at night so you can get away from the humidity during the day which makes for a lovely nights sleep!...

We had two restful nights at these hostel. Just 10 minutes walk away from the lagoon and a couple of steps to the esplanade the hostel offers a clean room and clean showers for a fair price. Quite good accommodation. The breakfast was included, simple but good. Had free wifi and friendly helpful staff.
