I've stayed at a nearby hostel previously (Cairns City Backpackers) and this hostel is heaps better all round! There are things on pretty much every night, the rooms aren't crammed with people and the beds are comfortable! Very nice showers, one that looks large enough for some sort of a shower party...
All the staff were cheerfull and helpful, even hanging out with the guests of an evening sometimes . I met some very nice people here and made some friends, especially when we made our own Catan board :)More
