The hostel staff have been excellent in helping me book my tours and trips, showing patience in moments of indicision, and were very helpful recommending the best options for my last minute bookings! Very knowledgeable about Cairns and always up for a conversation and a laugh, they make for a very easy going atmosphere. The hostel is rather small, ideal for laying back if you're after a quiet one, or a place to crash between adventures. Clean and comfortable, though one might think a bit far from the city centre, the free shuttle bus more than makes up for it. Very satisfied with my stay, highly recommend!

They only have 4-5 five Campsites and you pay 10$ p.P. That's more than fair for the center of Cairns. So Book it in advance and enjoy Cairns in walking distance. If you're too lazy, they even have a free shuttle service to the very center. The Wifi was good! The staff was friendly. The showers are hot and they clean everything every day. The kitchen was good as well. Can't tell you anything about the rooms, cause we stayed in our Van. Highly recommended!

Friendly atmosphere & helpful in booking tours for our family. Our two teenage kids loved it. My son played table tennis with some overseas backpackers and had lots of fun. We felt safe and it was secure from the point of view we needed a key to get inside from the street and also into the living quarters after about 8-9pm.

Not that much space if you come with a caravan, but good vibes and friendly staff! Will definitely come back here next time in Cairns. The staff gave us good service and helped us with whatever we needed help for.

Thank you for your comments, we are very happy you enjoyed your stay with us.
Please be advised that we are not a caravan park or campground, we are a Backpackers Hostel and only have a couple spaces in our off street parking to allow a couple of small campervans to park and use the facilities. Caravans, tents and cars are not able to sleep here, only within a room in the hostel. I hope this clears up any confusion?
We wish you fun and happy travels and look forward to seeing you next time you are in Cairns :o)
