One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. They provided a shuttle to and from the airport for only $10, and checking in and out (even after hours) was a breeze. Rooms were clean and welcoming, and the free brekky was nice. There was even a free sausage sizzle the night I stayed over, and it's located within walking distance...

Stayed here for over two months. Beautiful hostel, very well kept and cleaned. Pool is great and the tanning area is really nice as well. Showers have great pressure. Manager is very nice and goes out of his way to help people book trips and make the most out of their Cairns stay. Would recommend this hostel to anyone, grandparents,...

Globetrotters is probably the nicest/cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. And it actually had free wifi like it advertises. (I've stayed in so many hostels in Oz that advertise as having free wifi, but then when you get there you either have to pay or they don't even have any! :@) So it's nice to be able to stay somewhere...

As well free BBQ was a great thing to have two evenings a week. Free wifi was nice because it worked well which is hard to find. Very clean as...

I loved the layout of this place - it's more like a home than a hostel! There are plenty of space for chilling out, either to meet people or to have your own space this is the perfect place! They offer free breakfast daily where you can get pancakes, toast, cereals with coffee or tea. Free BBQ twice a week....

Myself and my friend (2 girls!) stayed here for 3 nights , it was only meant to be one night but we kept going back after trying out a few hostels around central Cairns (mad monkeys & gilligans) ! Honestly nothing beats globetrotters, the staff go the extra mile for their customers. They collected us from the airport, dropped us...

Globetrotters is a really nice place to stay in Cairns. The staff were very friendly from the start. The rooms are spacious and beds very comfortable. There are ceiling fans and aircon which is coin operated, although the staff each night put plenty of coins in which was awesome. Wifi was great and breakfast was Included and pretty good. Free...
