Really kind staff. Great location with lots of restaurants. Clean kitchen with enough space and a basic breakfast. They seems to spread the guest. In my 4 bed dorm was at all times only one other guest.

The hostel is really great, right at the waterfront, so best location. All is clean and new! The staff is super helpful and friendly! George is amazing with recommending the best tours and finding the perfect fit! Just amazing so 5 stars and highly recommend this place!


Cairns, considered the gateway to Australia's Great Barrier Reef, is a city in tropical Far North Queensland. Its Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park tells the stories of indigenous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with music and dance. Cairns Esplanade, lined with bars and restaurants, has a swimming lagoon. Northwest of the city, Daintree National Park spans mountainous rainforest, gorges and beaches. Cairns Wildlife Dome is an enclosed zoo offering koala and crocodile encounters, while the Cairns Night Zoo house kangaroos and wallabies. The Kuranda Scenic Railway winds up and along forested hillside tracks carved out by early settlers, while the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway provides ocean views above the rainforest canopy. Both terminate in the mountain village of Kuranda, known for Aboriginal art galleries and markets selling clothing and souvenirs. Bungee jumping, fishing and whitewater rafting are popular outdoor activities.
