I stayed in this hostel in exchange for one and half hours of cleaning per day. The people who own and run it are extremely nice, friendly and welcoming. It's very clean and tidy and the standards are good. It's in a great location, not a far walk to the beach and close to the sea front so there are... More

I needed a place to rest during a long layover at the airport. So, the staff were able to charge me for a private room (shared bathroom) for only three to four hours. The location is excellent within quick walking distance to the Esplanade and City Center -- bus station, Woolworths, banks, ATM and Cairns Museum. Also it is easy... More

I'm surprised to see the good reviews below because this was a bad start to my holiday. I booked ahead for a single room for 2 nights, arriving at about 1 a.m. after a long journey with stopovers from NZ. I had been given instructions on how to get in at that late hour (a key in a lockbox, and... More

This is the cheapest hostel I've stayed in in a very long time. Of course for the price you can't expect super high standard, the house is quite old but it has everything a traveller needs. I would have called the ladies hostel as it has a nice variety of ladies of all ages. A lot of them live there... More

I was basically only here to sleep so can't comment on all aspects, but my bedroom and the bathrooms I used were all clean. There was a quiet atmosphere especially where I was downstairs which felt like more of a staff/long term area. The best thing was that I arrived there from the 6am overnight bus and the hostel (without... More

This hostel was situated a short walk from the Esplanade and the central shopping centre and was perfect. I stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of my East Coast trip and needed somewhere clean & comfortable for good value for money. For $20 a night for a dorm room it was good value but I expected it to be... More

CGH is clean, compact and well-located, within easy walking distance to the Esplanade, wharf and centre of Cairns. I stayed in a private room for 3 nights while doing a Gt Barrier Reef trip and exploring the rainforest and mangroves on the edge of the city. The private room was good value for money (although it would have been great... More

I was delighted with this hostel. It was brilliant value and a lovely friendly place to stay. I came to Cairns planning to make the most of the beautiful surroundings so I had tours booked for the Great Barrier Reef, white water rafting, etc. I wanted a place where I could have a relaxing evening after a busy day and...
