This was an incredibly charming, hospitable place, with great hosts and lots of friendly guests. A lot of the "girls" seemed to be staying longer than the people in most hostels. It was not at all fancy, and lacked air conditioning in our spartan (but comfortable) room, but the atmosphere was great. People looked up and said hello as we...

There is an abundance of hostels in Cairns that are all within walking distance to the town and each other, and all within a reasonable budget. However, one thing that makes the Cairns Girls Hostel stand out from the others is the fact that this is an all-girls hostel. If you're used to staying in hostels you would know that...

Can nearly only say good things about this hostel! Very clean, very nice staff, good kitchen, quiet and nice atmosphere. No party hostel, I like that a lot. Its safe cause you can get a key for a locker near the kitchen from the receptionist, Only negative points are, there is no free internet, the toiletroom itself doesnt have a...

When traveling alone in a foreign city as a women it may be scary to stay in a hostel. Once I heard about this all girls hostel I booked it. It was $20 a night for a bed in a six bed room. It was very clean. There were multiple fridges and two kitchens. The owner gets you great deals...

This place is spotlessly clean and the staff are wonderful. The facilities are great, it's only a few hundred metres from the middle of town, it's quiet and secure - and there's no problem studying (no mixed Hostel parties to contend with). Great value for money

My girlfriend and backpacked the east coast of Australia and stayed in Cairns for 5 days. It was one of the cheapest and good value for money hostels we stayed at during our 3 week trip. Dawn, the owner, was very friendly when we arrived - thought she did require a full cash payment up-front. She was very friendly and...
