Clean and utilitarian. Really handy for netball players (facility next door) While this is in Cairns, it's not immediate walking distance to the central Cairns so that could be a downer for some. It's an easy trip with a skate board or a scooter. It's more motel like and would be good for a stopover.

This place is a bit outside of town but a perfect place if you just need a place to keep your luggage during the day and to sleep during the night. The room has kitchen facilities so you can make your own food. Good beds and both fan and air condition. But they make some noise. The owners are very... More

Great little place. Aaron and staff were very accommodating. Nothing was too hard. The rooms were clean and secure. It was great to meet the international students staying there. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Rooms were clean, comfortable and secure. Staff were friendly, professional and welcoming. A great example of great hospitality, service and facilities on a budget. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for comfort, security and central location when visiting Cairns.

Stayed here with some friends over the long weekend, was pleasantly surprised. It had everything we needed at a very affordable price. The family rooms were massive and handy to everything. There was a BBQ, games room, volley beach court, and a cold pool to beat the hot day. The rooms have been renovated as everything looked newish. The managers... More

Booked 2 rooms and was advised there would be light breakfast included. We turned up to the breakfast hall only to be humiliated by the owner and told our deal didn't include breakfast he was rude,arrogant and acted like a massive jerk. We will be checking out today.

This is a place I would really rather forget I stayed in. As the previous reviewer said the female staff person can be really abrasive. They seem to have overcome the internet problem. Beds are very hard,decor is right out of the 50s to mid 60s but it is clean. This place often has indigenous people staying who like to... More
