rem282 I stayed here about 2 or 3 weeks ago for 4 days. I enjoyed the inexpensive prices and the friendly and helpful ladies who ran it. Compared to other hostels I've seen, this one was extremely neat in its common areas and bedrooms. The hostel is located in an old building off to one side of Cairns downtown area. It is a quieter hostel due to the fact it is one gender, outside of the main area of town and has a firm policy on noise. I for one enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, which allowed me to recover from day trips and diving. My two critiques are that it was a little far from the city center and that they needed more than 4 shower facilities for 60-70 girls. Other then that I had a wonderful time!

sunny383 The room, shower/toilet area's, and kitchen were all clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. One thing was that my room was next to water pipe, which was very noisy at night.
tom_christmas 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.

colinclark fab hostel! really clean! great staff and good location! would defo reccomend if ya stayin in cairns! thye best hostel hav stayed in on my trip!
KyleMac The best (and cheapest) hostel I have stayed in Queensland. Smack in the middle of Cairns city and literally only a 3 minute walk to the nightclub strip & casino. Rooms and facilities are basic, but for a backpacker they are perfect and the price reflects. Our room was cleaned daily. Angelo at the reception was great and gave better prices than other tour operators around town. People were actually coming to his reception in the hostel to book tours and activities that weren't even staying here, which we found pretty funny (not to mention rare). Free meal every night at a local bar - good food & beer. Overall the stay here was heaps of fun & had some hilarious chats about our common friend 'Starcraft' with Angelo. Definitely the best hostel receptionist I have met, and deserves this review.
