When we arrived in Cairns we viewed various hostel reviews and consequently booked two nights in Njoy. The staff on reception were friendly and helpful and the downstairs of the hostel is nice and welcoming with a relatively new pool table and a large outdoor seating area and pool.
The WI-FI is free but only around reception, which is a bit of a draw back, as there isn't much indoor seating and normally a lot of people trying to use it at the same time each night.
We were booked in to an 8 bed dorm which wasn't realistically large enough to be an 8 bed room. There's not a whole lot of storage space for your things and the beds are very close together. There is air conditioning which can be nice when it's hot and there's so many of you in a small room.
The bedrooms themselves seem a little run down. They're not awful and we were comfortable enough but the mattresses, (all foam), are old so have sunk a lot in the middle.
The rest of the room was somewhere between dirty and clean.
The bathrooms were kept quite nice and clean though, as was the kitchen area, so that's a plus.
Overall, I think comfort would urge me to stay elsewhere but on atmosphere alone quite a nice hostel.
