Would stay again
Great place. Free shuttle bus to town and airport a huge bonus. Fun place with nightly activities, pool, outside relaxing area, etc. super friendly staff. Would recommend. Fun but not a party hostel (which means you'll actually get to sleep!).

Perfect for the solo traveler!
Had a single room, shared bathroom and it was perfect for what I needed! Having to pay 6AUD for 24 hours of wifi in the room was a bit of a pain but they do have free Wifi in the lobby/common areas. I had an early flight (5am blech) and the 3am early checkout was easy as pie and they even called a taxi for me which was there in approximately 2 minutes. Shuttles don't run every single hour to the airport (during normal waking hours), and they also run most hours into the center of cairns near the Esplanade which is very convenient. Great place to stay, highly recommend it. Will definitely stay again if I'm in the area!

High end hostel delivers!
Great place for "high end budget" accommodations. Very comfortable, staff extremely friendly. On certain nights they have events for the visitors- such as Reptile night where reptile guy brings his friends and you can hold them/have pics taken/etc. They also do BBQ sometimes with Kangaroo as an option. Would definitely stay again!

Great value
The hostel was really good. There was an hourly bus that went into the town centre and that picked you up from the airport. The toilets and showers were really clean and our private room was good value for money. Control for aircon didn't work so we were freezing on the second night! Overall really good

VERY ENJOYABLE STAY
Great staff and nice environment..! Far from town but they operate a free shuttle back and forth throughout the day - even so I liked walking along the waterfront..!
