If you just literally want a bed to sleep on then the hostel is fine, as properly as the cheapest around really.

  Customer Review on 6 January 2012 

Excellent location right opposite the pool and esplanade. But which is about it.

  David B. on 15 November 2011 

Nothing location I very good but all hostels in Cairns have that

  Louise M. on 20 November 2010 

Excellent hostel - staff friendly, rooms (double in our case) are basic but clean and all you really need. Bathrooms clean and you were able to go straight to toilet/shower without queuing (ladies) Although we had our tours pre-booked the travel desk staff were extremely helpful and always had time for a 'hello, how are you' Hostel is securely locked at night and entry is via night key so you feel really safe.

Fabulous location! Stunning lagoon just in front of the hostel. Very warm and friendly employees (especially the Swedish cute blonde).

  Luke J. on 27 July 2010 

Really pushy tour desk. Unhelpful staff when wanting to rearrange our plans. Really uncomfortable beds with springs inside your back all night. Extremely loud air con unit in room blaring out all day and night. No cost meal was tiny and terrible - barely worth the effort of going to get it. Great location though.

Really pushy tour desk. Unhelpful staff when wanting to rearrange our plans. Really uncomfortable beds with springs inside your back all night. Extremely loud air con unit in room blaring out all day and night. Free meal was tiny and terrible - barely worth the effort of going to get it. Great location though.

The staff were very helpful and also the hostel is right next to the lagoon and a 5 minute walk from woolworthes and right next to a mc donalds with no cost wifi

Their offive to book tour (for the Great Barrier Reaf or for other tours) is just fantastic! You should go there, you will meet marvellous people!
