Had a comfortable double room with a fridge. Great price, great pool area
This hostel completely exceeded my expectations! Rooms were totally different from what I got used to whilst travelling in Australia. Comfortable beds and cleanliness of rooms were amazing! Facilities were way more than I expected. Social life is unreal. I definitely will be back if I ever in Cairns.
It's definitely not a family hotel/hostel, because there is a bar and club on site. But it's just perfect for backpackers, cause you meet so many people and make friends for life.
Rooms were surprisingly upscale for a hostel.
Staff went above and beyond to help us when we had to cut our trip short because of the covid 19 impact on international travel (we had to get out as soon as posdible as Qantas was cutting flights and ending overseas flights by March 31.) Can't say enough about what a good job they did, including requiring patrons to wash hands before entering.c
Great location, kind staff, they're taking many measures to prevent COVID19 like providing hand sanitizer and hand washing stations at reception, discounts in bar and restaurant.
Clean. Bar had a great vibe
Asked 4 times for air con to be fixed. Staff rude with an unnecessary attitude
