What our visitors say
One of the nicest hostels I’ve stayed in. They provided a shuttle to and from the airport for only $10, and checking in and out (even after hours) was a breeze. Rooms were clean and welcoming, and the free brekky was nice. There was even a free sausage sizzle the night I stayed over, and it’s located within walking distance of the CBD.Tara Reynolds
Stayed here for over two months. Beautiful hostel, very well kept and cleaned. Pool is great and the tanning area is really nice as well. Showers have great pressure. Manager is very nice and goes out of his way to help people book trips and make the most out of their Cairns stay. Would recommend this hostel to anyone, grandparents, parents, siblings, friends, etc. Everyone is friendly and welcoming.Peter Murphy
