  • My favorite hostel in Cairns by far. If you want to avoid the total party attitude of Gilligan's, NG is the place for you. The huge deck is super chill, you can spend hours on the free wi-fi, reading in the comfy couches, playing pool, or chilling in the hammocks. The kitchen is large and very clean, plus the brekkie is nice, more than just toast. The dorm rooms are amazing, very clean, often with balconies, plus minifridges and sinks. Beds are comfy and lockers come with outlets inside!

  • The common kitchen need urgent attendance. The stoves are dangerous, most pans and pots have lost their handles and crisply burnt, all knives are dull. One time I spilled hot water on myself when i was trying to drain the pasta from a handle-less pot. I received a minor burn (luckily) on my stomach (about 25-40 cm^2 area) thanks to my t-shirt. My right thumb, middle, ring fingers, and lower part of my palm were severely blistered. I would strongly discourage anybody from using the kitchen.
