Nice location, close to beach and not far from marina to go to outer reefs . Sarah was very helpful with organizing boat trips and a great source of all kind of useful information. Tracy made a free BBQ dinner what was very nice too. Hostel is close to little beach park where I had a chance to watch hundreds of very colorful parrots.
I stayed in basic dorm but came to Cairns to see coralls and marine life so was not really interested in all amenities.
