I stayed two nights in the Cairns central YHA. It was functionally fine. My double room looked a little like a monk's cell, and lacked much in the way of surfaces on which to put my stuff. However, there was airconditioning, which was useful. The kitchen was big enough to accommodate the guests, but only two of the cookers were working, which led to a bit of a scrum. The laundry facilities were useful, and the bathrooms clean. There was a small pool, a TV room, and internet access via some good modern looking computers.
Basically, the hostel was fine, and the location was useful. It seemed less party party than some of the other Cairns hostels (which suited me), but equally, somehow lacked atmosphere.
