The Perfect Backpack for a stop at Cairns! We went there for two nights and the room, the services and atmosphere were perfect. Don't hesitate, if you want to have good time for an affordable price: Go for it! Norman

This has been the best hostel stay ever! Staff is super friendly and helpfull; they went out of their way to find a fun live-aboard for me, while nearly everything was full (thanks helen!!). Great laid-back atmosphere, great facilities (everyone has his own safe, good wifi, washingmachines/dryers available).

Amazing Backpack ! Staff very kind and helpful, Bedrooms very clean, bathrooms too. Very nice common area : lovely kitchens, oasis pool, Sofa + TV, BBQ Area ... (+free WIFI) A bit far from downtown and air-conditioned is 1$ for 3hours.. but still worth it! I definitely know where I will stay for my next trip to Cairns !

We stayed here for 4 nights in a double room and it was such a good hostel! The room was nice with a comfy bed, fridge, TV, aircon and plenty of windows. We were instantly welcomed into the hostel by Helen who gave us a tour around and told us all the places to go in the town. There is... More

Stepping off the plane was like having a hair-dryer to the face, but after a chilly few days in Melboune, it was most welcome. When we arrived at the hostel we were greeted... More
