Reviewed 11 August 2013

My friend and I stayed there for 5 nights in an 8-bed room.
The staff are very nice and helpful in general, except for Luke (I think that was his name). He was not welcoming at all.
The rooms are simple but comfortable. After 10-11 p.m it is very quiet so it is a good place for the people who want to rest and get up early to catch the tours! All the facilities were always clean.
They have movies every night, a nice pool, a fully equipped kitchen, free airport pickup and drop off and free dinner (that was the best part!)
I totally recommend this place.

The staff here are absolutely great, so friendly and helpful. We were picked up from the airport by someone within 10 minutes of arriving, checked in quickly and given maps and information.
The actual room is pretty nice, you get a fridge and a sink and it's spacious (we had a double room, not sure but from what i saw the dorms are much the same). The bed was comfy enough, we had two sheets which was all you needed with the tempetrature of the place. Everyone staying here seems quite respectful so the place was pretty silent between 10pm - 8am.
There is a shuttle to the town quite regularly, but the walk is only about 10 minutes so we did that. You can also book shuttles back to the airport through them which is really handy.
You get given vouchers for free meals at the Woolshed which is great if you're trying to save money! The meal choices are mostly spaghetti with sauce, they taste fine. You can upgrade to other items for $3/$5/$8 though which you should do one night, just so the meals don't get repetitive!
The only con to this place was that we had some tiny insects in our room by the sink, but I went down to talk to the guy at the desk and he gave me some bug spray which instantly stopped them and they weren't a bother. Pretty confident this was a one-off for them as well.
Overall, great place and we really enjoyed our stay here!

Met at the airport, the friendly staff at Njoy made me feel welcoming. The dorm was clean, the beds comfortable and it was a good start to my visit to Cairns. There was no free wifi however, which was a shame.

Pretty average hostel.. Its pretty loud and echoey at night so I would make sure you have some earplugs. Staff are pretty friendly. No hot water at all and we stayed there for five nights... Kitchens pretty basic but enough to cook a little. I guess the only thing really negative I would have to say is that its a very young group of people there and its more like the local youth club than the 'N-Joyable' hostel it states it is.

Room Tip: I dont know if there is a good room, we were furthest away from the music but could still hear the m...

Hey guys :)
If you ask me I had my best time in this hostel. Its the perfect mixture between quiet , relaxing and partying. The staff tries always to make your stay comfortable and help you out if there is a problem. I stayed 6 months in total in NJoY and it was the first hostel where I felt part of it after couple of days. In my opinion its in the perfect Location: not too close to the loud partycentre and not too far away. I just loved it.
Loads of fun is for sure so enjoy your stay in Njoy :)
Cheers

we were in cairns a while ago at n-joy, i had stayed at quite a few others and this one was by far the best, well worth the extra couple of dollars... great pool, pool table, clean rooms, kitchen and bathroom but most of all the staff were amazing...
they may or may not love if you refer to them as; generous martin, hockey playing luke(must pronounce hockey with the canadian accent), nearly naked edward, sam the great (previously refered to as not so sexy sam), sexy dave and bad budda :D

Room Tip: upstairs is quieter
