I am TravelinAlan. I have visited 157 countries(see TravelersCenturyClub.org), staying in hostels all along the way. I don't lie, because at this stage of my life, I can't remember the lies.
J.J.'s is #1. Tracy and Simon run, in my opinion, the best hostel on the planet. They will treat you like family and you will feel like family. I have stayed with them 16 nights in 3 trips to Cairns. That J.J.'s is not in the center of Cairns is not a problem. Their shuttle bus will take care of you morning and night. If you miss it, no worries as the Aussies say, it is only a 15 minute walk from town. The breakfast will start you day and the free evening meal at the Woolshed is also included, which you can cheaply upgrade to something more substantial if you're really hungry.
J.J.'s is my choice, and should be yours, for your stay in Cairns.
