Liked: Extremely clean! I just say that the bed sheets and blankets were soft and smelling good! Also, the bathroom is in each room and perfectly clean as well. During the night you can sleep well. Air conditioning in the room. Awesome and spacious balcony. Backpacker meal for 4 dollars and all the discounts for the drinks in the Bar/Restaurant/Club/Pub next to the building. Best hostel Ever!

Disliked: You cannot regulate the temperature of the room. So could be quite cold unless you remove the card that activates electricity in the room.

Liked: Nicest hostel in Cairns. Great tv room and kitchen on every level and bathroom is in the dorm.

Disliked: It's so big, when you travel alone it's hard to meet people.

Liked: I absolutely loved this backpackers, it was incredibly clean and provided everything you needed. We were a little older than others in our room but they were all very friendly still. The staff were so helpful and it was in a great location. The party atmosphere was fantastic and you couldn't hear it from the rooms which was great.

Disliked: Nothing.
