Reviewed 7 August 2014

lived in a 8-bed girls dorm, you got what you paid for, which is very low amount of money, bunk bed wasn't particularly comfortable, but clean enough. Bad thing is the doors of the rooms banged really loud when closing and also noises from the club across the street, and toilets are not enough, and one night someone poured some nasty things/ puked all over one of the 2 sinks, but this wasn't hostel's fault.
Very friendly guys from the reception, gave me great advice on what to do in Cairns. All in all, not a bad place for backpackers with tight budget. and the place is just right across Gilligans and few minutes walk from other pubs.

What this hostel doesn't offer facility wise, it makes up for in customer service. The staff at this hostel were absolutely incredible, helpful, genuine. The rooms were clean and comfortable and very roomy. A fridge in your room is also a plus. The kitchen was cozy, and the washrooms were clean. I would definitely stay here any time I was in Cairns. Great service for the price.

This hostel is located very well... close to the lagoon and to the shopping mall. I liked the small hostel and the friendly atmosphere there. It is not a party hostel like the huge gilligans but way better.
The staff is very helpful and you get always the best tips for every trip. I stayed more than four times in this hostel and i would always come back.
It is clean the kitchen is a bit small but ok.

coronas hostel is not a big hostel, so you will meet other backpackers and make good friends very easily. the hostel is close to everything you need in cairns like the lagoon,supermarkets, shopping mall and to all the famous pubs and clubs as woolshed.
you have a lot space in the rooms and you wont find any other hostel that is that cheap.
the owner and the staff are amazing people.very friendly, helpful and always in a good mood.they will make your stay in Cairns unforgettable.I would recommend this hostel to all my friends.
