Regular. In front to a big mall, but in a quiet area.
Walking distance to central Cairns.
Friendly staff.

Wonderful little hostel with a great vibe, extremely helpful and friendly staff and good, clean bathrooms.

Opposite a shopping centre with a supermarket that stays open til late.

Good quiet location, not right in the centre of town but an easy 5-10 min walk away.

Would not hesitate telling anyone to book this hostel. Do it, you won't regret it!

Really enjoyed our stay at Dreamtime. The hostel was started by a couple who met travelling (I was sold at that!). We stayed in a twin room which was big, good beds, linen & towels - air con is available but you pay $1 an hour, which we were fine with. The hostel is a made up of lots of little areas, so we had a kitchen shared between 3 rooms. The pool is nice, there's a courtyard with tables where they show movies & a great reception area where you can book tours etc. staff & service was fantastic & it's its in a convienient locatiob - about a 15 min walk to the lagoon & pier, across the road from a shopping centre & if your driving there is loads of free parking. A few minutes down the road is a great restaurant called Green Ant (Mexican cantina! Ask reception about meal deals as they do a cheap backpackers menu & it's delicious food & a great atmosphere.
