The rooms at the second level are better than the ones downstairs. Only one bethroom to share. No free breakfast but a great Cafe at the frontdoor. No Air conditioner but so many fans in the bedroom. Confy bed - not bunkbed.

Stayed 3 nights here. Location is good as you're walking distance to lots of stuff. The place was clean and very quiet, a part from very annoying doors and the stairs to come up from street level. Very strange layouts, just 1 decent shower and toilet even though there was no light. Bed was so uncomfortable. Completely sunk and all...

Pretty sweet little place; definitely has everything you need. However there's really not a lot going on so I would recommend somewhere else if you're a young backpacker looking for a good time. However for long-term stays in Cairns this would be ideal. The facilities are nice and the girls here are nice too - same with staff. Great for...

I stayed here for 4 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. It is the perfect place if you need a break from all those crazy party hostels in Australia. It is located very well, you can easily walk everywhere. There are three kitchens and several bathrooms in the house which were absolutely spotless at all times. I also really...

The location is quite convenient and walking distance to everything. Just keep your expectations low and you won't be disappointed. It's been a while since I've stayed in a hostel, so I'd forgotten some of the basics - cash only, no coffee/tea, towels or blankets provided (its cold in July!); no food allowed in rooms (due to sugar ants) and...

Enjoyed every bit of this place. Management is super - very understanding and helpful. Great place to meet other lovely and wonderful ladies from other parts of the world and even made some special friends whom we shared and encouraged each other.

I stayed in this hostel in exchange for one and half hours of cleaning per day. The people who own and run it are extremely nice, friendly and welcoming. It's very clean and tidy and the standards are good. It's in a great location, not a far walk to the beach and close to the sea front so there are...

I needed a place to rest during a long layover at the airport. So, the staff were able to charge me for a private room (shared bathroom) for only three to four hours. The location is excellent within quick walking distance to the Esplanade and City Center -- bus station, Woolworths, banks, ATM and Cairns Museum. Also it is easy...

I'm surprised to see the good reviews below because this was a bad start to my holiday. I booked ahead for a single room for 2 nights, arriving at about 1 a.m. after a long journey with stopovers from NZ. I had been given instructions on how to get in at that late hour (a key in a lockbox, and...
