Hi Rebecca thanks for your review. Being an inexperienced traveller we will fill you in on the norm when staying in a dorm room.
Globetrotters staff clean kitchens, bathrooms and floors twice a day. There are some guests who do miss their mum and therefor leave things lying around , for you to say this is our fault just shows how inexperienced you are. We suggest next time you have a problem with a hostel act like a grown up and see the reception. Hope this helps you.

Liked: Proximity to the esplanade and lagoon, accommodating with storing baggage upon early arrival and for early check-out. I stayed in the 8-bed female dorm - rooms were cleaned each day and there were plenty of outlets near the beds for everyone to recharge their devices, as well as free wi-fi. Plenty of storage under the beds for luggage, and it was a really friendly atmosphere in the room. Access to the property is gated with entry code, and feels secure.

Disliked: Although it was cleaned each day, the bathroom felt dirty because there were so many products left from previous travellers and a shower curtain that didn't look clean. The showers fluctuated between decent pressure and temperature, to zero pressure and crazy temperature fluctuations, more than any other hostel I visited along the east coast. Front desk staff at times appeared inconvenienced if you had questions.

Thanks Kerry for taking the time to let everybody now the small things at the hostel that warrented a 65.7%. The free totally unlimited wi-fi available 24 hrs a day , the 5 star sheet and bedding , the safe ,secure and relaxed style of the hostel ment you gave us one of the worst ratings for Cairns. $18 per night you work it out

Liked: Such a cute place! Immediately felt comfortable here…lots of chill spots to hang out. The dorm rooms are very nice, plenty of space. I like that the toilet/shower were in our room and we also had a kitchen area!

Disliked: Not too many office hours, but everything was accessible.
