Hi everyone, planning on getting to Cairns on Friday and was wondering if anyone knows of any cheap hostels there? Ive heard that they can be quite expensive? Ive in a serious cash flow situation so have been trying to do everything as cheap as I can!

Have you had a look at the Cairns hostels on Travellerspoint? This is a pretty comprehensive list and you can search by your dates, then order by price to find the cheapest one.

A quick search showed Cairns Beach House at A$14 to be the cheapest one available on Friday.

Depending on how you're travelling, you can also camp for free on some campsites national parks. You would need to have access to a car + tent + sleeping bag to do this though.

Hope it helps!

Try Bohemia Central or Calpsyos...Calypsos is out of town a bit so will probably be a bit cheaper. Bohemia is a great hostel and dorm rooms are quite cheap if i remember rightly..have a great time in Cairns, its my favourite place in the whole of Oz::):)
