About 30 minutes away by foot from the centre of Cairns,
the location is not ideal. However, it is a quiet place and we had
some good sleep. We walked sometimes along the coast to reach the
city-centre, and used the free shuttle at other times.
We had a double room, clean with tiled floor and ceiling fan. Shared
toilets and showers were in good shape. Some rust, but neither dust
nor mould. I loved the new shower heads: sort of a free massage for Backpackers!
The hostel is providing breakfast and giving vouchers for free pasta
meal in the city centre. We saved money this way and invested it in an
unforgettable snorkelling trip to the outer reef.
Serious business, competitive price, pleasant manager who knows about
all there is to do in Cairns... Yes we had a good stay.
