Liked: It's been well designed, with small communal areas leading to a big atmosphere.Dirty showers are my bete noir - even the slightest grubby and used feeling to someone else's shower and I won't use it, but here there was nothing to pick about, so 10 out of 10 for yours.

Disliked: The cost of using the internet is on a daily basis. I don't know the Aussie setup, but being a Brit I was expecting it to be inclusive, as in the UK.

Liked: It's really chill. The hostel is just away enough from the downtown to be a bit more relaxed. The rooms were spacious. Even with four to a room, the room did not feel crowded. Everyone had their own little space. There are lots of tour and trip pamphlets and they can pretty much tell you how to organize your stay in Cairns.

Disliked: There weren't too many bathrooms. But with that said, each one was fairly spacious and you either got a shower with a toilet or an individual shower or an individual toilet.

Disliked: It was a 20-minute walk to the sea front, but there are plenty of services closer than that, like a supermarket and restaurants and bars.

Liked: It was a great base to have in Cairns and you could book all your tours and stuff at the front desk with Helen who is pretty much an Oracle on all things reefy.

Liked: I kept trying to think of things that went wrong here, and i couldnt. First and foremost, the staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgable. I don't think i've ever met better. The place is very clean, facilities are great, beds are comfortable. No bunk beds here! Really, a great place to hang your hat a few days before or after heading to the reef.

Disliked: Only thing i might say i wasnt excited about at first was the AC is on a $1 for 3 hour system. But in most hostels, people are gone for most of the day, and they leave the AC on. Environmentally speaking, it`s better to charge as people didnt gratuitously use it. And 3 dollars a day for AC wasnt unreasonable.

Liked: This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are amazing! They know every traveller by name from the minute they walk in the door, which makes you feel very welcome. They genuinely want you to have a good trip in Cairns and beyond and will go out of their way to help you book tours, busses, and hostels across Australia. Their office hours are officially 8am-noon and 4pm-8pm, but they arrive early to greet early morning arrivals or to drive guests to their early morning tour locations, and stay over their lunch break or late into the evening to make sure everyone's plans are sorted. The hotel itself is great, with no bunk beds, no over crowded rooms, and great common areas filled with like-minded and curteous guests. I wholeheartedly recommend this hostel to any traveller!

Disliked: Nothing. It was perfect.
