Wow ! Fabulous Hostel, a definite must when staying in Cairns.
The staff are very friendly and helpful with booking tours and arranging taxi transfers to the airport.
Make sure your stay here includes the monday and thursday night. On monday the BBQ night is great fun, a true aussie barbie where you can try local delights including emu, crocodile and kangaroo, they even accommadate vegetarians too. You also get serenaded by a digeredoo using a vareity of instruments including a vacuum cleaner by the owner! its a good laugh x
Thurday night is all you can eat Pizza and beer night which is a great chance to get to know the other backpackers (p.s. avoid the wine go for the beer, trust me!)
The rooms are VERY clean and airy and they provide full linen, duvet and towel, beach towels are provided also when you go on trips to the reef/beach. They provide free tea and coffee as well as free spices in the kitchen area for your use if you wanted to cook, the bathrooms were very clean and hot water was always availible.
The atmosphere we found very relaxing with hammocks, free wifi (good connection) and chilaxing music in the communal areas. They also provide a regular free shuttle bus into town but you can also walk into the centre of town in about 15 minutes if you wish.
A free meal is provided every night except monday and thursday night at the local Woolshed. If you go before 8pm you have to buy a drink, after 8pm you can just eat your food and go. The free meal is basic, if you have the pennies its worth going for the upgrade. We as a couple upgraded one meal and got one free meal and that filled us up.
Overall a very high standard of hostel and a very good price, i advise you to book early as many people as places here go fast. They have a sister hostel a little closer to town too if you cant get in here.
I wish all hostels were like this !
