“Very cheap but not worth it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2011

This hostel is cheap but you get what you pay for. The free dinner in the evening is the best thing about it. The kitchen is disgusting and the service is non existent. Compared to all of the other hostels iv stayed in the staff are unhelpful here and reception is always unattended. I would recommend staying in another hostel!

Reception is closed for 2 hours a day between 12 and 2 so the staff can have lunch. The kitchen is cleaned 3 times a day and if people would clean up after themselves it would be clean all the time.
I will post some photos that show the areas you are complaining about.

Nice bedroom, plain and simple but clean, bathroom something else, shocking, flooded, not cleaned in days, hair on the floor, shower broken, really bad, insects on the floor, just so bad it's untrue. 45 dollars for a private room isn't bad, but i'd just recommend paying the extra 15 dollars and staying at X Base, alot nicer!

I stayed at the Cairns Beach house with a friend of mine for almost one week and we had a really great time. The staff is friendly and the hostel is clean. There is a free shuttle to the city centre and sights like the botanical garden are in walking distance. If you wanna spent a nice time in Cairns with a couple of friends I can highly recommend this place!!! :)

great place to stay when nothing is planned. we never left there. activities are great they have a free b fast and dinner. wild night out if u choose. rooms were better than expected and good price. quick walk to town but they will take u were u like.
diverse crowd from families to oldies to backpackers.
will be back have it planned. Now... the staff are the nicest i have seen in a long time. I travel for work constantly and there i felt i was staying at there house. i am picky and they always had a smile( and a beer waiting for me). They made the place. had been to three countries in two weeks when i arrived the front of house ladies made my stay an awesome one. will take family there and i cant reccomend it enough. I even offered the staff joobs in my establishments. that says something. keep up the good work girls.

My friend and I stayed there end of May and absolutely loved it! They have a nice pool, nice helpful fun staff and owners (Dave n Connie), and a big bench area for people to hang out. The room is nice and clean and it is so nice with the balcony and breeze coming in. The staff think for the travellers. Say if you are two single girls, they will try to put you in a girls' dorm. Provides fun activities, helpful on giving info/directions. Nice place for all ages. Very convenient. There is a shuttle which brings you from the airport to the hostel, towels are provided, internet in the commen area, sometimes even free breakfast, so definitely good value. Pet
