Great stay with Globetrotters. Accomodation was clean and hostel was lively and people/staff friendly during the open hours. No issues to report just a great budget hostel for people looking for a quiet stay with clean accomodation in cairns.

I chose this hostel because it was a little further outside of the hustle and bustle of the city center (and it's among the cheapest around!). Not only do you get free A/C in your room each night, but the Internet connection is amazing. I loved that I could plug in via Ethernet or use their FREE WiFi anywhere in... More

The atmosphere won me over at this calm hostel 15 minute walk from party-town, Cairns. The lounge is open and full of comfortable seating ! Great wifi connection, a pool and sun loungers all for a cheap price. (Try finding this for the same money in Europe or USA !) Staff are really friendly and helpful - many of them... More

Hi, we stayed at Globetrotters a few weeks ago after doing the East Coast in our van for over a month. This was the end of our journey and wanted a cheap but nice place to stay. Globetrotters was recommended by someone we met in Sydney and definitely didn't disappoint. It's small and very cosy. Plenty kitchen and bathrooms around... More

Ideal to relax in the swimming-pool or in the big living room. Great facilities if you like to go out the night. You can book tours at the reception, less expensive than in the city. Not far away from the city center and the lagoon (15 min walk) and you can lead to the quay of Esplanade in 5 min.... More

Stayed here 2 weeks and it was great. Super relaxed but still not too far away from the centre of town for nights out. Great alternative to those party hostels. The manager was really friendly and gives great advise on stuff to do in the area.

Me, my boyfriend and a friend of mine, stayed at globetrotters 3 days in a 10 bed room. It was nice, quiet with a lot of germans (like we are). The owner of the Hostel helped us a lot with renting a Campervan and finding the best price. I can just recommend u to stay in this hostel, u will... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at this place for a few weeks whilst in Cairns, would definitely have stayed longer if we were staying in Cairns longer. It has good amenities, several kitchens, lockable fridges, you get your own set of pots & pans etc. Free WiFi, lots of toilets and showers scattered around. Brian and Linda are very helpful....
