I stayed 5 nights in the Njoy Traveller resort and that was definitively 5 nights too long. It was really loud at sleeping time - especially because the "long-stay-guests-meetings". But that was not the biggest problem, you have to reckon that it´s a little bit loud in a hostel, that´s ok.
I slept in a 4-shared room and it was really dirty. That´s maybe not the full mistake of the hostel and the housecleaner because 2 long term guests stayed in the room (since a few months). They were really messy and their clothes lying around everywhere. There were little flies all over the washing table and the fridge (the fridge was very noisy). On the walls were small brown spots ( I don´t know what that was). The linen had spots too. The mattress was saggy and you could feel every spring in the bed. There is no ladder up to the bed so you have to stand on the lower bed and mattress to reach your bed.
When I left the hostel I had all over the body little bites. I think that are bed bug bites. Maybe they are a result of the messy roommates. The change of the linen has brought nothing, I think the linen is only cold-washed and some bugs are in the matress....
But the staff was nice but partly annoyed.
The wifi costs too much, 6 dollar per 24 hours (Gilligans 2 Dollar per 24 hr). I thought to have read that it is for free.
If I will stay in Cairns again I will choose another Hostel.
