This was by far the best value accommodation in Caines. Extremely convenient location, very clean with fully adequate facilities, and for me the most comfortable hostel environment. This is a pricey town and staying here really helps ease that burden, on top of my feeling safe, calm, relaxed...staff and fellow lodgers we ran into were just very easy to engage... More

This might be my favorite hostel :) This is not a party hostel, the girls you will meet are wonderful though. Many of the girls I met were also staying there longer-term as they were working, but there's also plenty of people just passing through on holiday. The hostel is always clean and I will admit that they do start... More

This hostel was great. It was very clean and peaceful. Most of the hostels I sayed at would blast their music untill morning so this was a good change. It was close to everything and the staff where very helpful.

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

Can nearly only say good things about this hostel! Very clean, very nice staff, good kitchen, quiet and nice atmosphere. No party hostel, I like that a lot. 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
