Stayed one night before heading south to Mission Beach. Great location in Cairns. A hop and skip from restaurants, grocery, and waterfront. Big perk to have air condition in room as well. Very clean and comfortable bed. Breakfast nice bonus.
Common areas were incredibly hot. Spartan amenities.
Super friendly, central, relaxed!
Great location, near the Esplanade, restaurants and the night market. The room had a fair size for 2 people and with air conditioner, so it was good for the price.
I think the staff in the reception couldve been a little more hospitable, maybe offered us a key for the fridge, told us about breakfast or suggested any cruise/day trip packages as we ended up booking it nextdoors.
Great hostel, great atmosphere, great bunch of guests, friendly staff and you will not get a better location for the price, a stone's throw from all the bars, esplanade & lagoon. Would recommend to anyone!
Great atmosphere and people. Staff friendly and informative. Great value for money and the best location just across from the lagoon and central to all bars and restaurants. Bonus that room has aircon and bathroom!
