I loved being invited to join everything!! And when I couldn't participate they were genuinely hoping I could for the next activity. It will always be my preference when I travel to Cairns - best bits of all my backpackers experiences in one place 😎

this place is super chilled but the parties are good too. It's a really welcoming vibe, feels like a second home. The staff are all really helpful and fun, especially Alex. He's the boy I love him. Miss you dude.
