This hostel doesn't deserve the high ratings it's got. It was full of weird Europeans in their 30s. The place felt so quiet and small. It was a fairly long walk away from the centre of town. It may be ok to live in if you just want some peace and quiet, but gilligans had better facilities and a far... More

It is the worst hostel i ever been. The kitchen dirty without plates forks, no space in the fridge . The stuff probably was the worst. Very poor speaking italian stuff. They were doing totally nothing. It seemed like they come for vacation not for work. The sunbeds in the garden were occupied by all the stuff !! The "crystal... More

I stayed in globetrotters for several weeks, a lovely hostel with great service and very friendly staff. Free wifi, relaxed atmosphere. Although it's quite far away, the prices are low and the standard of the hostel high. I'll definitely go back there if I'm ever heading to cairns again, felt like a little home.

Stayed at this hostel for just over a week and it was great. We stayed in a dorm and a double room and both was nice and clean. The staff at the hostel are friendly. The kitchens and chill out area are big and a nice place to relax with also the option of outdoor space (including pool). Would recommend... More

Clean and quiet. Really nice place with free WIFI. Bedroom and bed just perfect with a big mastress. Common areas are clean, warm, spacious and recent. The price is cheap compared to other hotels that are in Cairns. I highly recommend it ! Go !

We had never... More

Thanks again for a great stay - this was the second time we've stayed here. The hostel is more than good enough for the price you pay per night, and the owners could not do more to help you out. A home away from home and I will definitely stay here again when back in Cairns. Thanks! Katie & Sam
