  • The staff was very friendly. The rooms were air-conditioned upon demand, since it was hot in Cairns. The bar area was clean and the travelers were helpful.

  • The price is really cheap but something they didn't mention on the website. 1. 2 Slices bread for breakfast, not enough Utensils. 2. Dinner is 100g pasta with 1 spoon sauce. should wait for long time to get pick up. 4.The place is really far from city. You can get cheaper hotel in city and they have really good free meal. 5. Staff unfriendly and they will make noisy in the night except reception.
    Owner Comment

    Hello - thanks for your comments. Since you have stayed we have completely re-vamped our menu and the free meals are new and different every day - from curries, pasta and mexican nights! We do not hide the fact that the free breakfast is tea, coffee, toast and spreads - it's a light start to the day that we offer complementary to our guests. We are only a 5 minute drive to the centre of town - our location means that we have loads of room for parking and campervans, it's beautiful and quiet for sleeping, we have room for a massive pool and beach volleyball court and we can run activities to the botanical gardens (we do a free guided tour to the Cairns rainforest every week as it is just a couple of minutes walk away) and we also have soccer Saturdays on the fields opposite the hostel! We love our location and have loads of benefits from it - there are smaller more central hostels but we do provide resort style backpacking and a regular free bus into town and back until 3am! We hope that you enjoy the rest of your travels.
