I had a good time in corona backpackers. The staffs was really helpful when I had some problems. The most greatest point is they are located in city. If you don't need to spend that much time in your room and you know the limitation of what you can do/get and the closing times for facilities.

Cool place to stay in Cairns. Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen. They even give great deals on tours. Best thing is the great prices compared to some of the other hostels. Good place for a short or long term stay :)
