We provide a 24 hour check-in service but YOU NEED TO LET US KNOW IN ADVANCE IF YOU ARE GOING TO ARRIVE OUTSIDE RECEPTION HOURS SO WE CAN ORGANIZE YOUR KEY (if you are arriving on a 2am tiger flight make sure you book your first night for the same date as your flight DEPARTURE). Our reception is open from 7:30 am till noon, and between 4:30 pm and 8:00 pm.
Please note that for children we have a minimum age of 18 years in a dormitory room, and 5 years old in a private room. Children under 5 years are not permitted sorry.
If you pay by credit card on arrival we will charge you 3% if your card is a non Australian card, and 1% if it is an Australian card.
‘Cairns City Backpackers’ consists of two converted Queenslander houses loaded with character, and a tropical garden which includes hundreds of palm trees, a swimming pool and outdoor areas to chill out in!
Naturally there is a TV and DVD area, and free Internet and WiFi access
We offer clean and comfortable, double, twin, 4 and 6 bed dorms. The dorms include air conditioning except for the cooler months from April to September. In the private rooms, air conditioning is an extra $4 per room per night. All rooms include bed linen. Budget Twin/Doubles and dorm guests can hire towels for $1 if required. Other private rooms include towels.
The friendly and helpful staff has lots of good local advice and information about tours including access to standby specials.
Please note that for children we have a minimum age of 18 years in a dormitory room, and 5 years old in a private room. Children under 5 years of age are not permitted sorry.
Please note in the case of multiple person bookings whilst we make every effort to put all members of your travelling party in the same room if it's available, it's not guaranteed, particularly if you are booking close to your arrival date. We recommend booking at least 1 week prior to your arrival to help minimize the chance of being separated into different rooms.
Cairns City Backpackers is located in a quiet backstreet just a 5 minute walk to Cairns Central shopping Centre, and a 15 minutes walk to the central city area, 20-25 minutes walk to the lagoon and marina. From the airport, we are 10 minutes by car.
Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 2 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
