  • My only complaint would be that when I booked on here, it listed a/c as an amenity. When I arrived I found out that my room only had a ceiling fan to cool the room. It being bloody hot at night, there's no way I could sleep on the 2nd or 3rd story of a building like that. I upgraded for $3 more a night to have a/c that rocked, but found that bit frustrating. Otherwise, it's a great place to stay!!

    Dear Melissa, It is clearly stated on the booking engines what rooms include what. Our names even separate the two rooms based on A/C or fan cooled. Hence the difference in price. This "complaint" of yours unfortunately is a bit unwarranted on your behalf. P.s The upgrade was only a difference of $2. All the best on your Travels Team Corona

  • Very helpful staff. It's a bit annoying to not have reception from 12-4 but at least you're very clear about it up front.

  • This hostel is amazing! It's a great value with free dinner and discounts on all travel bookings. The whole place was clean and perfectly located. You can party anywhere in cairns and come back to a comfortable bed and a quiet room. Taesun at the front desk was more than helpful with anything we could ever need! I will definitely stay there again.

  • I'll be back soon. It's a very nice place to stay. Carrying the luggage through the stairs is a pain in the ... but it woth it.

  • Very dirty hostel. Bed bugs on the walls, the furniture, the food; luckily not in the beds. Ants in the showers. Very dirty showers.You don't get enough blankets. Seems like staff is always trying to get rid of you as fast as possible ( when you're at the reception). Not even worth staying for one night. Might as well get another cheap hostel outside of the centre of Cairns.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
