My girlfriend and I stayed here twice in rooms with a double bed. The place is very charming and chill. The reception is open for limited times in the morning and evening, which is only a problem if you want to buy beer from them -- off-hours checkin/checkout is available. Used the washers/dryers with no issue, and there was no shortage of bathrooms/showers when we needed them. Bed was surprisingly comfy, and the staff super-nice. The air conditioners in the rooms are coin-operated, but we were comfortable with just the big ceiling fans and leaving the windows (with the installed mosquito netting) open in July. I would stay here again.

A great place to stay while in Cairns. I had a long stay and am impressed with the level of service from staff. The rooms and premises were kept clean. The location was good also. I would stay again no problems and thanks again to the staff and managment.

I was there for a week, and I felt comfortable staying in dreamtime! Staffs are really nice, especially Gaby at the reception! She's patient and helped to book tours and gave me a lot of advices on trips! And she's a fun! Also, they've got different activities(movie night/pizza night) during weekday, which are pretty nice!

Our Dreamtime experience was absolutely wonderful! They made our group of 14 university students and 2 staff members feel right at home. The hostel has a wonderful culture with so much authenticity, a perfect welcome into Far North Queensland. They helped us book tours for our group prior to our arrival and then worked with us when we had last minute changes to make to our tour reservations. The service was truly exceptional! They also offered awesome dinner meal deals at the hostel - we loved pizza night and the BBQ night - a great value and great food. The location was great as well - very close to the city center. Overall, the Dreamtime staff went above and beyond to make our experience in Cairns exceptional, and we look forward to sending more groups back to Dreamtime in the future! We loved it!

I had a really great stay at the dreamtime. The hostel has a super nice chilled vibe with fantastic communal areas and some evening 'activities' which makes it easy to meet people. The facilities are plentiful and well maintained. The staff (especially Gabby) are really helpful and go out of their way to make you feel at home and help you book the right tours for you.
