i stayed at calypso a couple of years back when i was travelling the east coast, and it still stands out in my mind as one of the best ive stayed in ( and hell have i stayed in a few!!!!) the shared rooms were ok to sleep in. my favourite bit about the place was the bar and pool, also i think it was a thursday night they did and all you can eat mexican for like $5 or something? and pudding at the end!!
i met so many amazing people, the staff were amazing too. i would advise anyone to stay here if your in cairns! and also its ONLY a 10 minute walk to centre so dont listen to rubbish about it being out of the way!
