“I Njoy'd my stay”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Fantastic place if you're a traveller and you're out going. Everyone so friendly, so easy to talk to the managers and staff. Me and my mate stayed for about 3 weeks because we felt like it was our home after awhile. We got playing football (soccer if you're dumb) with the sister hostel Calypso on a weekly basis. Went out for beers and stuff. Cannot stress how much help this place was for new travellers like me and my mate. They organised reef trips, they will find out anything you want to know. Just ask.

Great place. Rooms were basic but enough for the money you pay which is so reasonable.

The least I could do for this place is give them a good review they were awesome.

Regards,

Jay

I stayed at Njoy! Travellers Resort for a few nights during a three week trip to Aus and I couldn't ask for a better hostel. Me and my boyfriend stayed at a few hostels around Australia during this holiday and this was by far the best one. The staff were extremely helpful with booking trips and tours and if they weren't completely sure on something, they worked hard to find out for you. The facilities were great (especially after staying in a campervan for a few weeks!), clean kitchen, showers and rooms. Our double room had air con, a fridge and a sink which was excellent. The atmosphere in the hostel was friendly and travellers and staff alike were always available to lend a hand. Free tea/coffee, comfy bed, a pool AND a pool table, what more do you need!? Overall, really happy with this hostel and I cant wait to go back!

Room Tip: Double rooms come with a basin, fridge, air con and are surprisingly spacious!

Visited Cairns with a friend for a weekend in March 2013 and looked up lots of hostels before choosing Njoy!. We wanted one that was fairly close to (but not right in) the centre of Cairns, that wasn't too loud as we were up early on the Saturday for a Great Barrier Reef trip, and that was cheap but not skanky. The hostel lived up to all of this and more: the rooms were very clean and the beds were nice, they had small single sex dorms available at a good price, the staff were very helpful and friendly, and they actually have a better shuttle service to the centre than they advertise on their website - they have a bus that goes straight to the Marina in time for all the Great Barrier Reef day trips. Pool was lovely as well, and they have a small free car park (call ahead to make sure they have space), although no free WiFi. But overall lovely atmosphere, great value for money, and I'd definitely go back.

Swaying palms, cool blue water pool,very clean larger than expected room, crisp linen, aircon all at affordable price. Husband and I stayed for one night pre cruise and had a whale of a time.
Free pick-up from airport in van driven by young back-packer staff who were a wealth of knowledge about Cairns and the surrounding areas. Desk staff very friendly and full of ideas to make our trip more enjoyable. Free shuttle to and from the city centre. Fully equipped kitchen, fridge and free tea and coffee available 24/7.
What more could one want? Would highly recommend.

While the rooms are clean and the bathrooms do have hot water you can find this in the majority of other hostels in Cairns.So choose to stay in any one of those instead.The hostel while it does have a shuttle bus at certain times is not in an accessible location in comparasion to most other hostels.
The main reason why I would not stay here is its complete utter lack of atmosphere.If you are a couple wanting a very quite night fine but if you want to meet people and experience the night life Cairns has to offer forget about it.One of the worst hostels have come across in Aus in regarded to atmosphere.So much so I left early and moved to Gilligans in the centre of town.Much nicer cleaner modern hostel with none of the downfalls of Njoy.Don't make a bad decision like me just don't stay here.

Dear Lollypoplady,

Firstly we are deeply sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us as much as the majority of our guests do. In response to your review, in particular the lack of atmosphere, we strive for a relaxed, chilled out and fun vibe at the hostel. We have activities certain nights of the week including a free pizza night in town and a bbq and snake show at our sister hostel (Calypso Inn) down the road.
As much as we like people to have a good time, we are not an out and out party hostel. We value the fact that people spend a lot of their hard earned money on tours around Cairns and we don’t want that ruined by lack of sleep the previous night due to loud party goers!
Our free shuttle bus starts from 07:10 in the morning and runs almost every hour through the day until 2300 at night. It is true that our shuttle bus does not pick you up from the doorstep. To take our shuttle bus you have to cross to the other side of the road, however we are just a 10-15 minute walk from the city centre.
Once again we apologise we did not meet the standards you expected and we wish you safe travels for the future.
Kind Regards,
Martin
Duty Manager

Njoy! was a good hostel, clean, nice room with fridge, sink and aircon. But the hostel is a 15 min walk from centre. They have shuttlebus going to and from Centre. A friendly staff!!! Free shuttlebus to the airport.

I spent a few days at Njoy Traveler Resort. I had a good time.. Everyday a 10-15 minutes walk to the center was alright. And if you are a lazy walker you can take the free shuttle bus. The stuff was great and always helpful;) Big thanks to Martin:)
The rooms were clean. wifi available for 8$(24 hours), laundry, pool, clean kitchen and FREE tea or coffee!
I enjoyed my stay there and would always come back. :)
