The service i received throughout both months was exceptional.The staff were so friendly and helpful, all of them spent a long time making sure that my friend and i were well looked after. The value for money was incredible, not just the extent... More

I spent a month with Cairns Sharehouse and was looked after extremely well by the professional and caring staff. I booked as a scuba diving student who was in Cairns for a month. I was placed in a share house with other students which was clean and quiet and facilitated study. The location was near major shopping facilities and grocery... More

Hi, I'll start off by being one of those people who says 'I never review anything on here...' because this is my first review of anything on TripAdvisor. Cairns Sharehouse (CSH) is by far the best place to stay in Cairns by a country mile if you plan on staying there for a reasonable amount of time - which you... More

I lived in Cairns Sharehouse for 6 months in 2014 at the Martyn Street location. As a company they are lovely. The staff are wonderful and you can get lots of discounts for local activities. However, Martyn Street (and most Sharehouse locations) is in the sketchiest part of the city. It's strange, because it's really only a 10 minute walk... More

Well located, very clean and great professional team!!! For all kind of people and budget ! We spent 4 months in a place where we felt like at home. It was nothing in common with a basic sharehouse, and we had real privacy.

I had a really good experience as the houses are well located.just outside the really busy city centre but close to it with a short walk and close to supermarket a bars. Price is good and better than a hostel as rooms offer you all you need but with more privacy compare to hostels. Last thing but not less important... More
