The Jack Backpackers is a newly refurbished pub-style backpacker accommodation. The Jack offers all guests free WiFi as well as free good quality evening meals!

The hostel has a range of 8, 6 and 4 bed dorms, and private twins and doubles to suit any budget traveller. The rooms can either have ensuite's or shared bathrooms. All rooms come with a refrigerator, air conditioning, and security lockers. The hostel is located above a pub with a huge outdoor beer garden, perfect for enjoying some drinks in the beautiful, sunny Cairns weather. The pub also has a restaurant, Casino gaming room, and crazy themed nights to make your stay that much more memorable!

The Jack Backpackers prides itself on providing clean, affordable accommodation right in the heart of Cairns CBD; 2mins walk from the lagoon and all the bars and clubs Cairns has to offer. You also receive a discount card on check-in, which discounts all food and drinks in the bar. It doesn't get any better! Book now and enjoy your stay in Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Well located, staff were very helpful and friendly throughout. Well priced bar on site, only drawbacks were the hygiene of other guests (which isn't the hostels fault) and the fact that loud music from the bar prevents sleep pre midnight.
