I was recently in Cairns, and after having a bad experience of sleepless nights found this awesome quiet backpackers. This is a perfect place for travelers who are active during the day and want a peaceful, clean and extremely friendly atmosphere to come back to. The backpackers is in great condition and is the cleanest of all the backpackers I've stayed at. The beds have linen and really comfy mattresses and even better NO BUNK BEDS!!! Also the staff are really friendly and can help you out with good prices on tours.
The backpackers is about a 10 minute walk from the lagoon and the main shopping centre is just across the road which is really convenient. No alcohol is aloud on the premises which keeps noise levels down. If you do want to pArty and drink you can trot down the road to many neighboring backpackers and have a quiet home to come back to.
If your looking for a good rest after a busy day of missioning
This is the backpackers for you!!!!
(Also very well priced $24)
