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...

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

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
