My friend and I stayed here for 5 nights in February 2014. We had been travelling round Australia for 5 weeks staying in various different hostels. This hostel was a welcome change to previous establishments. The staff here are lovely and are extremely helpful and are hapy to answer any questions which you may have. This hostel is definitely not... More

We came across this hostel by chance and although from the outside it doesn't look that inviting as soon as we got to the reception we was welcomed by the owner and we was immediately put at ease. The whole hostel is super super clean and the rooms are basic but all you need. The only let down being the... More

This was an incredibly charming, hospitable place, with great hosts and lots of friendly guests. A lot of the "girls" seemed to be staying longer than the people in most hostels. It was not at all fancy, and lacked air conditioning in our spartan (but comfortable) room, but the atmosphere was great. People looked up and said hello as we... More

There is an abundance of hostels in Cairns that are all within walking distance to the town and each other, and all within a reasonable budget. However, one thing that makes the Cairns Girls Hostel stand out from the others is the fact that this is an all-girls hostel. If you're used to staying in hostels you would know that... More

Its safe cause you can get a key for a locker near the kitchen from the receptionist, Only negative points are, there is no free internet, the toiletroom itself doesnt have a... More

When traveling alone in a foreign city as a women it may be scary to stay in a hostel. Once I heard about this all girls hostel I booked it. It was $20 a night for a bed in a six bed room. It was very clean. There were multiple fridges and two kitchens. The owner gets you great deals... More
