The Northern Greenhouse was my place to stay during my time in Cairns. I loved the fact they had daily trips throughout the week, which was one of the reasons for choosing this hostel. Unfortunately when I decided to signup early for a Port Douglas...More

Best place to stay in town on a budget! Rooms are clean and airy. Great common places to do your own stuff and catch up with fellow travelers. The hostel is close to everything -- supermarket, restaurant, post office and the fleet terminal.
