I stayed here for 5 days in total in December - travelling alone, I have never stayed in a backpacker hostel before so I cant really compare to anything else.
The room hadn't been cleaned when I arrived, but reception were extremely quick on sorting this out. Infact reception staff 'Amy' and others were absolutely brilliant! Always remembered my name everytime I walked through reception, and were very helpful with any of my queries around Cairns or trips. The room itself was very basic. I had my own double room with bathroom. Downside there was nowhere to hang any clothes up in the room, so I lived out of suitcase. No windows, so you are a bit encased in. The hostel itself feels very safe and once reception is locked up for the night, there is a code to get in at the side gate. Its a good spot for noise aswell as your just a ten minute stroll down the road and I didnt hear a squeak out of anyone all night !! So .... its basic, slightly boring rooms ... with excellent friendly staff in a location just on the edge of the main road.
