Liked: Very close to seafront esplanade. Relatively cheap. Good place to base yourself. More suited to younger backpackers. There's a pool and decent TV area, plus kitchens and laundry facilities

Disliked: Booked double room with shared bathroom - room very very basic. Room had huge window that looked onto lounge area, a broken blind sort of covered it. No hooks to hang anything on. Although no noise rule after 11pm, you could hear everything from the lounge. Very noisy from walking up above in early hours of morning with a lot of overhead noise from people walking Towels extra surcharge. Shared bathroom was always quite messy. Staff had limited knowledge on excursions and the surrounding area.

Liked: The staff was friendly and very helpful! On the day I was to be picked-up to catch my departing flight, it was late. One of the Front Desk staff Crystal, went above and beyond what I expected - even though I had personally made the shuttle booking, she called the company for me to make sure the shuttle was enroute, and when she discovered they got the pick-up wrong, helped to get them to send someone quickly so I wouldn\'t miss my flight. A personal driver showed up for me only a few minutes later.

Liked: I really liked the whole atmosphere of the hostel, very very nice people. The hostel itself has a really cool layout and is very close to the Esplanade of Cairns.

Disliked: Could be a little cleaner at first glance but after a while you realise how often the important are being cleaned, they are just a bit worn down. They did renovate some rooms though, so maybe things have changed now.

Liked: The staff at this hostel were briliant and the double room was perfect for me and my partner. Free wifi is also a great bonus - other hostels should take note!

Disliked: It is a 10-15 minute walk to the town centre, however the walk is pretty much along the esplanade, so is nice.

Liked: Good kitchens and communal dining table. Nice little pool and pool lounge area.

Disliked: The Internet was not working- this was going to take 12 days to fix. Breakfast used to be included but has been crossed off the hostel inclusions. The sofas are becoming worn and the lounge is looking quite run down.
