About Calypso Inn Backpackers Resort

Swaying palms, smooth tunes and swinging hammocks, that’s the Calypso way. Chill poolside with new friends in the Queensland sunshine by day then check out free nightly entertainment at Zanzibar Bar & Grill, our friendly hostel pub.

When the taste buds bite, enjoy a pool-side breakfast or Aussie BBQ dinner at Zanzibar, or whip up your own masterpiece in our great communal kitchen.

The Calypso crew are here for you and we know our stuff. Between us all there’s over 65 years of hostel and travel know-how so you’re in expert hands from the moment you arrive. We go the extra mile to make you smile, with a free tour booking service, free return transfers to the airport, bus station and central Cairns and WiFi now available in all rooms and free Wi-Fi (Public Areas Only)
Drag yourself away from the Calypso chill for a while to explore all that this amazing part of Australia has to offer - explore the world’s oldest rainforest, snorkel the famous Great Barrier Reef or take a bungy jump over cascading waterways. The nature is truly like no other.
