Liked: Excellent hostel with a great relaxing atmosphere, ideal place to stay in Cairns. Impressive rooms and very clean kitchens and lounge areas. Very handy having your own fridge key. Nice pool area and amazing WiFi!!

Disliked: The fan didn't work in our room and you had to pay for the air con. The reception closes during the day which was slightly frustrating if you needed something.

Liked: Just the best hostel I have been in my life. A lot of common areas, facilities widely available, wifi just amazing (it's free and fast) What stroke is the beauty, the location, the cleanliness of the rooms -no bunk beds- For the small price I paid it felt like I was in a five star. Thank you so much Stopped by three weeks

11 July 2014

Liked: Not too far from the esplanade

Disliked: Tiny rooms. Also you have to pay a $20 deposit for utensils box to use as there is nothing in the kitchen but the box contains crappy old utensils and not all the ones you need. Walls of the rooms are paper thin and only one actual bathroom between at least 8 rooms. They say there is a 10pm curfew in the kitchen but its pushed literally to 10pm and there is a 11pm noise curfew elsewhere. This is not so. Voices from outside and at the front chairs could be heard well into the early morning. Very difficult to sleep

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.
