Overall Cairns has a tropical climate. So the place was hot in the day but pleasant by night. The rooms are okay, clean and the overall atmosphere is worth a stay. Evenings can be spent in the resort lounge or near the swimming pool with wifi. Kitchen has sufficient vessels. Tips: If you want to contact reception, check out: they... More

The beds in the dorms rooms are terrible - the most flimsy and thin mattress I have ever slept on! You have to pay a deposit to get a box filled with cooking utensils which seems to be the norm in Cairns for hostels... The internet is very good. The pool area is nice. The staff were helpful.

Its a peaceful place with amazing people. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anybody that don't want a party hostel. Clean cheap and a nice 10min walk from all the craziness in town. Great wifi and safe and clean

Globetrotters is great if you just want to chill out and have some peace. It is not a party hostel, the night wardens stop people making noise. It is perfect if you want a decent night sleep. There are also lockers in the fridge so nobody can rob your food! The management are really friendly and will sort you out... More

I have been here for over 8 months! I originally checked in just until i could find a share house or an apartment, but I honestly liked it here so much I didn't have a reason to leave. The owners are incredibly nice and genuinely care about their customers and their hostel. I was working while staying here and had... More

No point in having a no noise after 11pm policy if nobody takes any notice and there's nobody to enforce it. Shame that some people don't think that the late night mutual respect request doesn't apply to them. We've all done the party/ drink/ travel thing ...... and whilst talking/ laughing/ playing of videos and you tube clips is fine,... More

Stayed two nights and wasn't that impressed. The walls were thin, you could hear everything. Having said that, it does have a noise restriction at night. The curtains were see through. You have to pay for the air con, which wasn't needed while we were there. The bed was ok but the pillows were terrible. Might as well not have... More

About 20min walk from the Esplanade center. We had a nice quiet stay. This hostel has a no noise policy after 10pm so great for us that prefer a nice rest rather than huge parties. AC is $1/$2 so remember coins. The room (double) and showers were clean. Even though there was only 1 shower on our floor we never... More

This place has definite high and low points. The free wifi was awesome (even though it frequently went down) and the noise restrictions were good if you had to wake up early for a tour. The noise restrictions did cut back on the ability to socialize with others in the hostel though. At the same time, the facilities were not... More
