    I had a private room which was very spacious and clean. I love that there was a mirror by the desk and clothes rail. Shared bathroom for ladies were clean and nice. Interior design was pleasant for eye.

    The bathroom for ladies is all the way on the ground floor

    It was so cool, is not a disgusting party hostels like the others in Cairns but is super social and everyone is quiet after 12am. Clean and organised, staff so nice and helpful. Swimming pool, pool table, table tennis, and a fully equipped kitchen. Large tv room and spacious hostel in general.

    The staff was very nice and available to answer any question! Very central position, next to the train Station, to a big shopping mall and also to the esplanade where the night Life is.

    Before arriving I texted the property asking about the airport shuttle and they emailed me that I needed to exit the airport and the shuttle would have been there. In fact, I had to book the shuttle. Luckily there were some tourists waiting for it so my brother and I could anyway take it. What I didn't like was the disinformation provided and also when I called the hostel before arriving asking them a confirmation if the shuttle needed a booking or not they simply told me that normally the shuttle meets the arrival flights otherwise they suggested to take uber, much more expensive.

    Not much

    The two owners are the most rude and inhospitable people I have ever met in years of travel!
