          Really helpful staff, great rooms and feeling to this place, Off the main drag, but better for it and very easy to find. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Cairns. Chris (?) is particularly helpful.

          i stayed at Dreamtime for 4 nights in January 2014. I had huge cockroaches in my room. We have to pay extra for Air conditioning. It's a 10-12 min walk from the main city area. The hotel is quiet and lot of bagpackers.More

          A-grade hospitality from Chris, Erin and team. Genuinely very helpful and accommodating in all regards. Very relaxing stay just opposite the train station. Loved the fireshow and bbq Wednesday night. This created a friendly easy atmosphere for meeting other guys from the world.

          Too much inserts in the room and on the bed aswell. I've got bitten a lot~ And I booked the airport bus to the airport at 7:30am. They make the wrong booking at 8:00am. Overall I don't like this hostel.
