    Rooms were cleaned daily Close proximity to the centre of cairns can either walk or get the bus Burger bar was good value for money Breakfast was good best had so far in a hostel Friendly staff

    Sometimes the toilets were dirty e.g. tissue all over the floor Kitchen was dirty all the time this is mainly the fault of guests not cleaning up after themselves

    Free access to gym & free breakfast. They also offer a free shuttle to town, which is very convenient. Staff members were very nice and helpful. Overall we had a good time at Calypso.

    One of the toilets was sometimes blocked. The shared toilets were okay. Some of the showers didn't have hot water.
