    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed in

    Amazing staff, Priscilla was great—room was new and clean, location was better than all of the hotels I saw in Cairns. Highly recommend, best hostel I’ve stayed in!

    Impressively renovated and great location

    I stayed in a four-bed dorm with sea view and balcony. It was very nice. The kitchen and eating area are on a fourth-floor balcony looking out over the water. Although a holiday period, the hostel was not full, possibly because travelers have not yet discovered the value this hostel now offers.
