After spending 3 nights in cairns in two different backpacker both being extremely noisy and with very uncomfortable beds one even had windowless rooms (not pleasant ) , I was becoming very tired and struggled to enjoy my days of sight seeing , I took a new friend recommendation and booked into Geckos Backpacker ,instantly I was impressed , the management was very helpful ,the rooms have brand new beds ( not bunks !!) yay!! Great night sleep assured , the kitchen Is very clean an tidy and great wifi , not knowing cairns very well I was happy to find the mall for all my needs was directly across the rd , clear swimming pool was a treat also , this place feels like a home away from home , and was great to find out that this is definitely not a party backpacker!! It's a gem!! Very happy stay . Thank again to the management , highly recommend this backpackers .
