Stayed for just under two weeks, very cheap and the rooms are clean and quite spacious. The only negative for the rooms is the lack of power plugs and the shower pressure is very low. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious, usually very quiet. The wifi is really fast. We did had a couple of bad experiences with the... More

Hostel is clean, comfortable and well equipped. No problems there. The women on reception are very helpful. However, I will never ever stay here again due to the night porter. I was greeted by "move your bag" and a very unwelcoming attitude. On my last night I walked into the kitchen to make a sandwich before a long haul flight,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in a double room. The room was basic with a shared bathroom. It was quite clean and came with bath towels. Toilet/bathroom were fine, they were cleaned each morning but the showers didn't have alot of hot water! Free WiFi but only really works in the common areas and not in the room. Location is... More

I had a private room, but the whole place was noisy with people going up and down stairs. The room was basic (as you'd expect for $50) and clean. I had quite strong petrol fume smells coming in the room. The receptionist was rather officious when we asked why the wifi wasn't working. She said that it must be ok... More

ok for a night. It's right on the Esplinade amongst the restaurants. Had a single room at the rear away from the street noise. Free wifi but not available in rooms. Only very basic outdoor area where you can get it & people were smoking there. It's also available in well equiped kitchen which is dominated by a largeTV. Woman... More

We booked for one night a double room and it s a good value for money. The location is very good, the kitchen is good equipped, however not so clean, there was only one bathroom on the floor, and not always hot water in the showers. If you are staying in Cairns for one night, this spot is ok.

I've just stayed for one night in this hostel but it was really fine. Not too noisy and just by the pool area. A lot of the people staying here are long term stayers as in a lot of hostels in cairns but this one had a great atmosphere. Wifi just in the Kitchen area.
