Stayed only 2 nights but had good time. Cairns is bit boring for me. Too many backapckers bars with no taste, better go up to the top... but nice place and helpful people

Stayed January 2008
Thank neiloo

I stayed at Castaways in Aprill '03. The staff were some off the most helpful and friendly I encountered on my travels. The hostel was clean and good value for money. There was also a bus service running regularly into Cairns centre with a cute scottish driver thrown in!!
