I arrived, being quite new to traveling, and was pleasantly surprised. They have an awesome little space here. Everyone was very friendly, and the rooms are very comfortable. Just a few blocks from the ocean where there is a gorgeous board walk.There is also a wide range of people staying here so you won't have any problems finding someone to... More

I stayed at Globetrotters july-december 2013, I lived in a 9-bed share room during this time and everything was just great! Fantastic facilities consider the prices. Good kitchens, especially the top one that is amazing! Lovely management. 1100PM is cut off time every night, so for people whom work in cairns: this is a great opportuinity to catch some actual...

I have never left a review before, but my stay at Globetrotters International was so horrendous that I wanted to comment on my stay to try and prevent anyone else from having to endure a night there! The hostel is dirty, shabby and in poor repair. There are creepy crawlies everywhere and I left the hostel with loads of insect... More

Please with the sunbathing and pool area, lovely to be able to get a lounger and relax. Aircon was the biggest issue here- fans only which do nothing in 40 degree heat. Only other complaint is that the beds are single beds line in a row in the room- yes you would think this would make it more comfortable than... More

Where do I start with this place? I'll start with the shuttle they recommend, FNQ. They apparently are ready for all incoming flights yet we and a bunch of other people were picked up after over 2 HOURS after our flight landed. The driver didn't even care. We arrived at the hostel about 1pm, which according to our email confirmation... More

My boyfriend and I took a trip up north and found this hostel online. It was close to attractions, and seemed to have decent prices.. so we booked. Immediately TURNED OFF! First night we had our dishware stolen. As we were cooking!! Turned around, and it was gone. You have to put a $25 deposit for a container with plates... More

Booked this hostel before I left for Oz so I would have a nice week before flying home to reality.. Stayed in room 3, a 10 bed dorm, private bathroom and kitchen. Pictures looked really nice and was looking forward up staying here. Reception is barely ever open! Bathroom in room was vile so used the shared ones instead! Bed... More
