Dreamtime is really your home away from home. The rooms are nice, clean and big and so are the bathrooms. We stayed there during the cyclone, and couldn't go anywhere, so when we woke up in the morning the owners had prepared a free breakfast for us! And afterwards they played movies for us in reception and the owner made... More

Lovely place with colorful and modern furnished rooms. Plenty of space, comfortable beds, enough plugs, cupbords and furniture where you can place some stuff. Center of the hostel is a open space to sit, relax, chat or enjoy your food. Additionally the staff is very friendly, helpful and interested in their guests. The prices are absolutely reasonable. You get a... More

Super comfy, plenty of room to chill for everyone, enough kitchen space, alternative decoration that makes it really homy, nice library for book exchange, excellent location! very helpful staff; I found it inconvenient that reception closes between 12 and 16 at some point, but that's nothing compared to the high quality facilities they offer. Certainly not a party hostel, but... More

We stayed in a twin room for five nights in early March during our Oz holiday. The room was exceptionally clean as were other shared areas. The staff were helpful, approachable and friendly and the whole place had a lovely atmosphere. Great value for money and nice and quiet.

I stayed for a week in Cairns. Dreamtime was recommended by a friend. I had a single room, which was small, but clean and nice. The hostel took care about all the bookings I needed and I had a great time. I would definitely recommend to stay there. It's a quiet and familiar hostel. Not a party place at all,... More
