We stayed in JJ's for 2 nights at the end of a very long trip in Oz. The place was great value for money: very friendly staff, small, clean, welcoming and very quiet as it was on the outskirts of town but close to a lovely beach. Our room was a comfortable double, contained everything you need and was nice and secure. Good facilities overall, small pool and a free shuttle bus between JJs and the main spot in Cairns. Also safe to leave the hire care outside. I'd definitely recommend JJs as it was excellent value for money.

Having recently returned from our world trip, here is a review of our stay at this hostel. JJ's is a great little hostel and all you need for your stay. Our room was very basic, but the mattresses were confortable and we had air con which was essential. They include free dinner tickets at the Woolshed which was simple but tasty food. The location of the hostel was the only downside as it was quite far out, but they do run a free shuttle bus to town. The pool was the tiniest pool we had seen! We checked out after the first night to be more central to Cairns centre.

My husband and I stayed at JJ's for 3 nights. We had a doubloe room with air conditioner if we'd wanted it. Luckily we didn't, there was plenty of fresh air with the windows open. I rate JJ's very highly. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathroom facilities were clean and I saw staff constantly cleaning there, and the kitchen. Breakfasts were readily available, and there was cereal, tea/coffee and toast with butter and jam. There was a courtesy bus which ran regualrly between the hostel and the centre of Cairns. This was free of charge. There is also a free dinner served at the Woolshed, and the quality and choice of food is good. You can update your meal for $5 which my husband did - nachos, which are worth a lot more than $5. The hostel is also located in a quiet part of town, safe to leave the car just outside overnight. It's 3 minutes walk from the beach/esplanade. Very quiet at night. Nice location for having breakfast in a morning and there was a small pool available for guests.

I stayed in hostels for seven months, but this one really stood out. The staff were so helpful and the hostel was nice and friendly due to it's relatively small size. The free breakfast is nothing exciting, but you can eat as much toast and honey/jam as you want, or cornflakes, which when being a poor backer, is very useful! The free dinners in town are quite small, but it is nice having someone cook for you and feeling like you are eating out! When we were here the owner did a free bbq one night with loads and loads of sausages, meat, salads, potato salad, pasta salad, rice salad, etc ect. And because there was too much for everyone to eat, she just put the rest in the fridges and said we could take as much as we wanted for our luches the next day! It was all delicious.
It is quite a walk from town. Maybe twenty minutes, but it is a beautiful walk along a boardwalk by the water with parrots in the trees next to you and pelicans the other side.
This hostel not luxury, but it is cheap, clean, friendly and safe. What more could you want from a hostel? I would recommend it to any backpacker.
