I travel alone, i know who i trust and who i dont and i didnt want to even get in the bus from the airport but it was midnight and i had nowhere else to go. That's how dodgey the guys driving were. i got to the hostel and the office was a shack... the 'front gate' was one of those railing you put up when building and was literally held on with rope. I had to pay for 3 nights as i'd already booked. This place was streaming with cockroaches - it pretty much just looks like a crack den. i went up too my room past the toilets which were absolutely disgisting i couldnt even clean my teeth with the water. they gave me a bedroom with 2 beds andi was the only one in it which was fine because i was absolutely knackered . i lay down fully clothed and tried to sleep and was kept up by someone on her phone shouting abuse down it. which i was not happy about at all. i was too scared to open the cupboard in case there were more cockroaches in thre. at about 2 am they let someone else into the room but i was already so annoyed by not being able to sleep i didnt care. she turned out to be pretty sound, my age, so it wasnt so bad. in the mornin i had to get a refund for the night i stayed at the further few nights i was so disgusted and headed to the airport with the girl i met - while i was waiting for the shuttle at the hostel some guys who were drugged up/drunk started abusing us. when i got to the airport i called Bohemia Resort Cairns and stayed there - the best place i stayed in australia. I would NOT recommend Asylum to anyone - it's absolutely disgusting.
