There is nothing about Castaways which does not recommend it! Wine and cheese night. Free airport pickups/ city drops in nice vehicle. Free pub meal each night. Free internet and wifi. Clean comfortable rooms. Good kitchen facilities. Fantastic staff who bend over backwards to make your visit to Cairns the best it can be. Pool - small, yes, but really, who comes to Cairns to swim in the hostel pool?!
I personally applaud the coin-operated air con - prevents people from overusing it and three hours for a dollar is plenty when you also have open windows and a ceiling fan.
If we come back to Cairns this will be my first choice - great budget accommodation (unless free toiletries and a fluffy bathrobe are your priority!)
