From our guests

"What can I say.....soo much fun!"

August 2014

"I'm actually sad to be leaving the hostel after 5 days, as it started to feel like home. The moment I walked into my room I was invited on a night out and from then on everyone I met was soo nice. This is the hostel to stay at in Cairns for location (most tours start from here, so you just have to roll out of bed with a hangover and your there) it's known for being a party hostel, so if you want a good time with friendly people...STAY HERE!! Most of the negative things you hear about this hostel are from people who haven't stayed there and chinese whispers. The beds are comfiest I've ever slept in and the sheet are clean, I slept like a baby every night and didn't once hear the club underneath! Everything about this hostel is great!"
