Nice place
Nice place, Nice staff & converience
It is near "Cairns Central" shopping mall. There is a supermarket, you can buy many things what you needed. The staff is nice & there are some activities, such as movie night, pizza night, bbq night..... You can meet many Backpackers who come from different counties.

Dreamtime - the Name really fits
Great atmosphere, good value for money, next to shopping center
We had a great time at the dreamtime. The place has a really good vibe, is clean and the staff is really friendly. We can definitely recommend this hostel to other backpackers!

Cigarettes
Location, double rooms in back (quiet area) of hostel
If you love smoking or just love second hand cigarette smoke then this is the place for you. Don't believe their literature that states "Our communal areas are all non-smoking", unless of course your definition of "communal area" means "inside buildings". The truth of the matter is that smoking is everywhere in every outdoor area in this hotel. If you're a non-smoker, steer clear of this place. Kitchen facilities are sorely lacking in this hostel with only one that had any cooking facilities at all (the other two only contained a fridge and a kettle). Clean tea towels (actually any tea towels at all for that matter) were also an issue. Hot water (in the showers, kitchens, etc) was tepid at best.

Good Location, Helpful Staff
it is near to the shopping mall and train station which are just opposite. you can also walk along the street to reach Esplanade Swimming Lagoon which is a free outdoor swimming pool.
also, there are lots of catering nearby. you may also buy ingredient at coles in the shopping mall and cook you own food at the kitchen of Dreamtime. there are 2 kitchens! they have washing machinesss too! i use the rack in my room to dry my clothes. there are lots of bathrooms and you need not to queue. bathrooms are clean but not many hooks for hanging the clothes. the decoration in room are nice and quite romantic. there are bbq night and guests are invited to perform! the atmosphere is excellent!!! they have movie night, pizza night, etc. too! the staff are really helpful, they are familiar with the surrounding and can provide good advice for your day! they helped me to book train tickets to the rain-forest~ they have shuttle bus to/from airport too but the driver i met was quite rude to my luggage and others. and he was very rush and did not let me go to washroom right after i got my luggage at airport and urged me to get onto the van immediately...but there is nth to do with Dreamtime. anyway, i had a nice stay here!! ;)
