The staff is helpful and friendly, i&'ve met great people there.

The rooms were silent for the quantity of partying and drinking going on within the bar as well as the terrace. We had a room on the terrace side, socouldn&'t hear the bar. The kitchen never seemed too busy and also the girl at reception was really friendly and helpful. They do try to include everyone that&'s interested in their activities, but these are mostly drinking based. I wasnt the biggest fan of the free dinner, due to the fact its often the same: a tiny portion of rice or pasta with chicken or beef with gravy based sauce but the Barbeque burgers were awesome and plenty.

Social, friendly, clean and reasonably priced. No cost evening meal was pretty great too!

  Customer Review 

I would extremely suggest this hostel to stay in! Right in center of Cairns, walking distance to all significant attractions. The Rooms were extremely clean, A free meal is included in the restaurant every single night! Large portions and great options. No cost wi fi, employees are extremely accommodating and a large balcony for socialising with other backpackers. The hostel is above a bar which is amazing as they have different events on for guests, it does get a little noisy on the weekend but only until 1am! Overall a amazing place, would definitely stay again.
