“On par for Cairns”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

From what I've seen in Cairns this is your basic hostel where $18 will get you a good size 8 bed dorm. But the beds don't have a private light so you are unable to read. Plenty of washrooms and showers which are a good size with good hot water and good water preassure.

The place is above average clean. The kitchen is next to the reception and awkward to work in for lack of logical organization. A couple of overhead cupboards would easliy resolve this problem. They should really invest in new kitchenware. Only instant coffee and tea is offered. The eating area is 70% outdoors so if it rains everyone huddles around the 6 seat table.

There is a small pool which is hardly used, a pool table and a movie each night. This is an old converted and unremarkable hotel. Nothing much sets this place apart from the others.

That said you are likely to get some sleep and the staff, particularly the young gentleman and Leena are very respectful, pleasant and helpful. They can organize many tours but you would likely save a few dollars in town. Free shuttle to and from the airport and to the waterfront is a available but it only operates from 7am which you should keep in mind when booking return flights, otherwise you'll pay a commercial shuttle $12.

The one down side it's that it's a fair walk to the waterfront, Esplanade and the shopping centre which is the main reason I moved as there isn't much to keep you nearby NJoy.
There is free wifi but computer/internet is expensive and simply unreasonable nowadays.

Careful when hanging your clothes to dry. It seems there is a men's underwear thief, but not to worry too much as he/she returns them next morning.

Room Tip: Be sure to book return flights that depart after 9am to take advantage of the free airport transfer.

The hostel itself was nice, clean and had a free wifi and nice common area. Also they gave all visitors coupon for free meal, that could be upgraded for few dollars (e.g. 8$ for steak). But the best at Njoy! hostel was receptionist Alina - nice, friendly and very, very helpful, thank you again!

I spend 4 or 5 nights here in a twin room with a friend. Spacious room with floor space for both of our huge suitcases. Counter in the room. In-room sink didn't work but that didn't matter, right around the corner from the bathroom which was always empty (3 toilets, 3 showers). Good water pressure and temperature. There is in-room wifi to buy or free wifi in the lobby--which is rare (and really awesome!) in Oz. The lobby is open air because it is gorgeous and hot in Cairns. The pool is refreshing. Self-controlled air con in the room as well. This place is away from all the other hostels, but Cairns is small and it's just a 10 min walk from the CBD/nightlife. There was parking available too (good city to rent a car). Not a party hostel. Great price. Would definitely stay again if back in Cairns.

Room Tip: Main floor was good for me (didn't have to carry my bags up stairs).

Njoy! is a nice backpacker. The Pool area is great, there is music during the day and they turn it off at 10pm. It is not a "Party" hostel, it's nice and quiet and the staff make sure to keep it that way.

The bathroom are awesome, not the cleanest but really not bad. The showers are really large.

The rooms are all good as well, mine had a mini fridge in it. You control your own A/C, you can keep it nice and cool.

The only problem with that place is the location, it's to far. They give you voucher for free meals at the Woolshed but then it takes you 15min to walk there. It wouldn't be a problem if it the area felt "safe", but being a girl traveling alone... I didn't enjoy walking back at night time.

All together, I enjoyed my stay.

I spent 3 nights here at Njoy and had a great time hanging out with other backpackers and staff. Since it is the Wet Season this time of year, the hostel was mostly empty which was great because everyone became a tight-knot group rather quickly. Unlike my other hostel visits, the staff here were a real chill group who not only did their jobs but shared their experiences from "back home" and experiences in Australia. One bloke in particular, Martin, was not only helpful in answering any questions I had but also became a quick friend that I will continue to keep in contact with after I have leave OZ. If your a sociable backpacker or just a traveller looking for a place to mingle while enjoying affordable accommodations, Njoy is the place for you.

When the staff is nice and helpful, the atmosphere is relaxed, the place is clean and close to the centre but not too close so it permits you to stay quiet if you want to, the opportunity to book a tour are infinite...what could you ask more from a hostel?!?

We choose this place because it was among the cheapest en-suite double rooms we could find in Cairns. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed. Facilities were a bit old and the linens a bit threadbare, but everything was in good working order. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Luke at the front desk remembered my name when I came back 2 weeks later to get my mail. It was slightly noisy in the evenings, but partys would get shut down at 11 and ushered off to the bar. Walking distance to the CBD and Central Mall. Would definitely try this again in the future.
