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.
