I stayed 5 nights in a 4 bed mixed dorm. This is a basic, clean and friendly hostel. Considering the cheap price it is a very good standard. The guys running the hostel are really helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for the center of Cairns, bus station and easy transfers to the airport. The kitchen is fairly big but you have to be patient if a few other people are cooking as limited number of pans etc. There are fridges in the rooms. I didn't have a problem sleeping but I expected people to be going in and out - I didn't hear noise from clubs/bars.
If you're not too fussy and are looking for a good price and good location this is perfect. I would definitely stay again.More
