Walking into Dreamtime you're made to feel at home straight away as the staff are lovely.
The rooms are quite quirky and clean, but the air con didn't work and we had cockroaches in our room. It was hot so you've got to expect it I guess but it was a bit off putting.
Wifi is available at a reasonable price (although signal is a little hit and miss depending on where you're staying) and there were activities on during the night.
A friendly hostel in a great location just on the outside of the main centre, just a shame about the bugs.

Easily one of the best hostels that I have ever stayed in! Dreamtime is everything you could want in a hostel, big clean rooms, plenty of bathrooms, lots of activites each evening to keep you entertained I was very impressed.

The staff are also friendly and more than willing to help you out with anything you need. For me if your looking for a Hostel in Cairns, dreamtime is the one.

This hostel has an amazing atmosphere and a very nice helpful staff. The hostel is tidy, there is a free pool table and the rooms are spacious. You feel at home here. The hammocks and palm trees make it a tropical place

This is a very cool little hostel- great vibe. It's very quiet, which is lovely if you're not into lots of partying. The beds are surprisingly comfortable, and there's lots of doubles/3 bed rooms, not massive dorms with 20 people, which is really nice. There's 3 kitchens which the staff clean regularly; the whole hostel is actually very clean. Overall, a great place to stay. Really enjoyed it and would be back if I could!!

Room Tip: I liked the rooms above the reception; they were really cute!
