Thank you for your kind review. We do pride ourselves on trying to ensure we have the right type of guests in each property but this can be difficult sometimes when booking online and we can't meet you face to face or have a chat. I know that you chose our 'backpacker' property which is great if you are working... More

I spent a month with Cairns Sharehouse and was looked after extremely well by the professional and caring staff. I booked as a scuba diving student who was in Cairns for a month. I was placed in a share house with other students which was clean and quiet and facilitated study. The location was near major shopping facilities and grocery... More

Thank you for your review. We have houses dedicated just for students (whether they be learning english, studying aviation, doing a dive course, TAFE/UNI etc) and this works pretty well as you get to live with a great mix of people who are focussed on their studies, but yet still enjoy the social aspect of sharing. I am so pleased... More

Hi, I'll start off by being one of those people who says 'I never review anything on here...' because this is my first review of anything on TripAdvisor. Cairns Sharehouse (CSH) is by far the best place to stay in Cairns by a country mile if you plan on staying there for a reasonable amount of time - which you... More

I lived in Cairns Sharehouse for 6 months in 2014 at the Martyn Street location. As a company they are lovely. The staff are wonderful and you can get lots of discounts for local activities. However, Martyn Street (and most Sharehouse locations) is in the sketchiest part of the city. It's strange, because it's really only a 10 minute walk... More

I had a really good experience as the houses are well located.just outside the really busy city centre but close to it with a short walk and close to supermarket a bars.

“The rooms on the poolside closer to the back (i.e. not the front room on both levels) have no neighbours except for a dive company. It means no-one is looking in your window - it's a bit more private.”
