Right on the beach with a free shuttle to the bus stop and the grocery store.
No lockers in the room or outlets at every bed
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 breakfast! I could eat pancakes as much as I want. And women's shower room on the ground floor.
The staff didn't care about anything. Poor service. Dangerous people hanging around outside.
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.
