Hostel was great for what I needed which was a bed to sleep at night. Not a party hostel but all the staff were very friendly and helpful; although I didn't need them. To make it a perfect score they just needed lockers in room which had plenty of space if they kept the 8th bed out of a 7... More

i have stay in 6 hostels in Australie and this was least best. - the shower and toilet rooms are off the kitchen room which is not very hygenic. during my stay only 4 toilets were working - only four toilets for all travellers (!!) therefore sometimes you have to wait an hour queue to use toilet. -hostel advertises as...

There was a decent atmosphere throughout the time I spent here...the staff are friendly and the accomodation on offer is better than other hostels I have stayed at in Cairns. Would definately recommend staying here.

After visiting other hostels in Cairns I have to say this was the best hostel I stayed in. First of all it offers free breakfast and free fast WiFi which is a steal considering the price you pay for a room. The rooms have comfortable beds, high quality bedding, air conditioning, all of the rooms are clean and their a... More

The room was clean&... More

Literally every second person you come across works at the hostel. This doesn't necessarily mean a bad thing but it creates an uninviting atmosphere. I had one older guy, around 50 or 60 and from Melbourne, in my room that worked there since 6-7 months. He was very rude. It started with him pumping music with his speaker till 11... More

Had a great time saying at globetrotters, very clean and an enjoyable place for all. Great facilities to kick back and chill out with friends and others. Was very close to the beach and city shops, perfect place for anyone traveling to cairns.
