"AWFUL just AWFUL"
The white pillow case stain looked Thai dyed yellow and dark yellow, the mattress was stained badly, the room smelt of sweat and something else. The photo's used to advertise this place on the internet belie the disgraceful condition of the property, the fridge door in the room was rusted and had not been cleaned for months literally, the uncleaned […] bedroom window looked onto machinery and industrial chimney like flus of varying sizes. The stairway steps were wet from water running down the walls. After less than 15 minutes I checked out, the male behind the desk said unfortunately I can't give you a refund which was fine I couldn't wait to get out he obviously needed the money more than I did. DO NOT BELIEVE THE PHOTOS I was offered an upgrade at an extra $30 dollars a night which I refused - he reduced to $15 a night which I again refused. This is the lower grade of back packer stays.

Hides is so central for us to everything. We we're here for a week.And it is a recomadation to my family and friends.Staff are friendly n helfull at all times.We were disappointed by a big blackout on our arrival but all goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old budget hotel with a good location"
We were uninformed about the hides hotel being in the middle of a construction site in the period that we stayed there and we were quite shocked upon our arrival with major traffic works going on out the front of the building day and night how ever once overcoming this we did settle in to our room ok and the staff were very helpful but we probably wouldn't […] stay here again .

"Found hotel to be well located"
The hotel is reasonably economic and with a continental breakfast included in the room rate. Location is within easy walking distance of casino (not that I went in) and wharf where lot of tour boats located. Lots of tour offices close by. Good Chinese restaurant close by and Woolworths supermarket across the road was very convenient. Double bed was […] two single beds pushed together and didn't appreciate the gap that opened up with movement. Overall it suited my needs very well, was comfortable and economical. I would definitely stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not bad for the price"
Comes with breakfast included, good location, clean rooms, but older furniture, shared bathrooms. Need to pay for wifi, has TV and a fridge. Pool on site, but need to get to it by walking through a parking lot off property really. I paid $60 and $64 per night last minute.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We realized it was a budget hotel, but were disappointed to find that there was no ensuite bathroom. The desk staff were generally friendly and helpful with giviing directions and assistance. Unfortunately, I have to give a Rating of 2. We had to checkout at 4 am, so requested a wakeup call for 3:30 am, and a taxi for 4 am. Very fortunately, we also […] had a small alarm with us, because no one gave us a wakeup call - in fact, the night person had placed a sign on the front desk "back in 5 minutes" - which appeared to have been there all night - very poor customer service. The taxi, however, did arrive on time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The location is excellent, it's so central. The breakfast was a great convenience & pleasant surprise. For the cost - can't complain. When the air cond. malfunctioned we were upgraded no questions to the newer section which was fantastic. The staff are all very friendly, helpful and accommodating.

"Tired and loud, but cheap and central"
Found out from my tour guide that this place is the original backpackers hostel converted to a hotel, kinda feels like that - 1/2 way between the two. The decor was a bit tired (although in the hallways it made it look quite charming). The hotel is VERY central, so great location, however this does mean you can hear people emptying out of bars and talking […] in the street until about 3am, I am a heavy sleeper so not too much of a problem, but if you are a light sleeper then you may want to think about somewhere else.

"Good central location"
Hotel was well located, old & clean & value for money. Noise of people from the street even on a tues night was a bit annoying, but what you get in a central city location I guess. Free parking & breakfast on the very wide balcony was a bonus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value for money"
The surrounding area was undergoing roadworks and was a little seedy. The hotel itself was basic, but for the price paid, I was more than willing to overlook that. The bedding and glasses provided weren't very clean. The staff were very friendly though. I guess it was close to the Esplanade. I will probably stay there again. Expect no frills though […] .

"Fantastic Free Breakfast!"
Booked this hotel again, best continental breakfast of any hotel we stayed at. Centrally located, convinient and a clean and comfortable place to stay for what we paid.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location great but hotel on need of total revamp"
Quaint looking hotel but starting to feel its age. Due to availability we could only get a room with bunks. The mattresses were lumpy, room tiny and stuffy but there was air conditioning - if you didn't mind the noise which sounded like a washing machine off balance! Sleep was impossible, needed the air con on to drown out the noise of the pub underneath. […] Breakfast was nice and plentiful. We checked out that day even though we had paid for 2 nights, will not be going back Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great value for money"
Excellent for what we paid. Great location, sufficient brekkie, clean towels each day and even got the use of free beach towels. Found it a bit noisy. Fine for a few nights though but not any longer. Paid a bit more for the newer room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"The real heart of Cairns"
I have stayed at Hides Hotel several times when visiting Cairns over the past decade. It is a grand old lady of pubs in the region, and many people may not realise what a dame she is. Sure, some of the facilities are a little basic. For the price though it is awesome value, and a great place to stay if you want to get to know the heart of Cairns. The […] free breakfast (cereal, toast, tea, coffee, juices, with recent additions of boiled eggs, noodles) on the historic balcony is a great way to start your day in the tropics. The location is actually the original cente point of Cairns CBD. Some may be put off by the older features in the heritage rooms, but I find these quaint links to Cairns when it was first settled. Underneath there is an Irish Pub, which does keep pumping some nights until 2am. So be prepared for the general hubub of night time revellers. At night you can sit on the balcony and meet other travellers. As I write in October 2013 there is a redevelopment happening, and the street below seating which used to be a magnet to loud and drunk people is being removed. This will change the whole street ambience and probably make Hides more appealing to some. But I love the pub as it is. Cheap, cheerful, old but historic and nothing plastic. Don't go there if you are a snob who wants total silence and all the modern conveniences. I lived in Cairns 25 years ago and Hides has always been the pub that everyone knew as 'the dear old centre of town'. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

good location, near the sea,large room,the twin room has a big bed and a small bed, but there is no bread coaster and microwave ovenGenuine Hotels.com guest review
staff were friendly on arrival and checkout, bed was hard and room was not made up when sign was on door, only two fresh towels were left instead of three, won't stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is basic, and you most make sure when you book at you book a room with a private bath room or you will be sharing it with lots of other people.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best bed ever"
This hotel was in a great location, just up from the lagoon. Fabulous value for our money. Breakfast was plentiful but plain. Parking was free in the middle of town, what more could we want. When we arrived we saw the pub and groaned thinking we would have lots of noise. It was soo quiet we slept all night. Very clean... And I am very particularGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good value if looking for a budget place to stay"
If you are looking for something no-frills and budget, this is a good option. We stayed at the heritage part of the hotel. It was a little old. Two of our pillows were torn, but the receptionist changed it for us. The bed was ok, comfy. The toilet was clean and spacious. Breakfast was great too. Better than expected. Had cup noodles,3 types of cereal, […] 3 types of toast, various jams and vegemite, two juices, coffee and a selection of tea., and boiled eggs. Receptionists were very helpful. Ask them to borrow hair dryers or bottle openers. Value for money - one of the cheapest in the area. Only thing to note is that the Cairns city centre is a little dodgy, but there are police patrolling the area. So depends on your comfort level. We could hear people arguing from our window.

"No service at all"
This was the first hotel i had stayed in where they did not even make the bed. We left the please make up room sign on the door and the only thing done was a new towel was placed on the bed.Genuine Expedia guest review

"The bare facts of our stay"
The ratings my wife & I have given (above) are for the last 3 days after we moved room to the newer wing. We spent our first 3 nights in Heritage room #94 where the bathroom floor could have been cleaner, coffee/tea implements were missing, we had to ask for a kettle & TV to be fixed which were both promptly provided, no problem. Room opens to wide, […] common dining verandah - great but doubled-edged, coz the noise from street beyond kept us awake most nights eventhough we shut everything. Hotel staff & manager were great & we aim to stay here again but in the newer wing & still enjoy the heritage feel of the breakfast room & shared verandah. Central location of Hides is hard to beat coz just about everything Cairns city offers is not more than an easy stroll away.... One suggestion for management is make Wi-Fi internet free like how other venues are doing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hides hotel is a backpackers"
It's backpackers accomadation, how you gave it 3 stars is beyond me. I booked a room for accommodation during a 2 week course in Cairns, I stayed 1 night and moved somewhere else. It was very disappointing and not suitable for my needs at all. The rooms where very basic and not very clean, I was upgraded to a superior room and was confronted with a […] dying cockroach as soon as I walked in to my room. There was also a shopping trolley parked in the corridor on my level for some unknown reason. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Certainly a great location. Centre of town and handy to all amenities and everything else you might require. Staff courteous and helpful. Good, but not flash, breakfast. Room was spacious and clean. I like the fact that the shower taps are outside the shower. Great idea!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
When we arrived we had had a terrible start to our holiday and the staff were very sympathetic and so kind. For Malcolm and his crew of merry workers a huge ta muchly from Anni and Karen. We will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was really good but it would be good to see it revamped to it's original state. It is a beautiful hotel. It is central to everything. The bathroom needs a bit of TLC in the room we were in. Otherwise would recommend it to other people.Genuine Expedia guest review
