Liked: Convenient, pretty quiet at night, clean, bed was comfortable

Disliked: the light in my room wouldn't stay on, it would just flash. probably just my room. also a lot of the kitchen appliances were either difficult to use or didn't work.

Liked: Free WIFI-, dorm rooms are great, lots of space to hang, feels safe, a good distance from the city- close enough to walk, quiet area, staff always cleaning everyday

Disliked: Just annoying you have to pay a deposit for cutlery, but I guess it keeps the kitchen clean:)

Liked: having free wifi in our room, having a newly renovated shower room and washing basins area.

Disliked: poor design of the double room which making the room feels much smaller. Also, the location is still a little bit far away from cairns central, not very convenient.

Backpacking / gap year, Beach / sunbathing

Liked: Nothing in particular

Disliked: It is not very clean and bathrooms smell. Threatening signs all over the place like: "This is a budget hostel, not a hotel, if you are not happy, please leave". Of course nobody leaves because you pay in advance but this doesn't make you feel confortable at all.
