One of the best hostels from my 1.5 year Australia trip, this place really is worth staying in for a few days or longer (as I did). With a free bi-weekly bbq, free daily breakfast, free amazing wifi and a super awesome staff, the value it provides for your money is hard to find elsewhere in Cairns, or Oz for... More

The staff were really friendly and helpful, especially with giving advice on tours and other things to do in the area. The hostel/room was really clean and tidy. The free breakfast and barbecue was really useful...would definately stay here again.

A sum up of Globetrotters International Hostel - comfy, quiet, well-equipped, friendly, fun, homely and arguably one of the best hostels in Australia. I never thought I would describe a hostel as a home but that is exactly what Globetrotters has become for me. A one week stay has turned into living and working for 3 months here and I've... More

Came here planning on staying a few days, ended up staying for a month and I'm still here! The whole place is cleaned daily by the army of workers and the manager takes great care to fix anything that is broken asap! Amenities are kept very clean and the kitchens are cleaned at least twice a day. The best part,... More

Centrally located but far enough from the madness of cairns, this hostel has everything you could possibly want. Free breakfast in a morning, shuttle bus to the airport and the reef terminal for those scuba trips (which the girls on reception will happily help you organise), 4 kitchens (with a perfect spot for breakfast in the top kitchen), a pool,...

Great hostel just outside the noise and bustle of cairns. Only 10 mins stroll along esplanade to the lagoon. I had a double room to myself clean and quiet. Staff friendly. Free lift to reef boats in the morning. Basic breakfast provided cereal toast coffee. Enough to set you up for day. I was hesitant about staying in a hostel... More

This hostel was great! Showers, toilets and kitchens were clean. We stayed in a lot of rooms while staying at the hostel, and all the rooms were nice and the beds comfy. The atmosphere was good, easy to meet fellow travelers. The staff is really nice and helpful. I loved the fridge system with your own key to your own... More

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
