The bedding was amazingly clean, and the kitchen is well-stocked with lots of breakfast foods.

Great hostel, definitely the best in Cairns”
I booked this hostel based on the good reviews and I totally agree with them. In fact, basically the whole of Cairns seem to agree, because luckily I booked in advance but a lot of people were disappointed to find out it was fully booked, and not just around the eclipse. So the good points about the hostel: clean and big rooms with ensuite bathroom, the atmosphere was great as there is a mix of people travelling alone, couples and families, younger and older backpackers etc. The deck is great to hang out and socialize and they have movie nights and bbq nights there etc. The location is good, about 10 mins walk to the Esplanade and supermarkets and restaurants around the corner. The kitchen is large and clean and has plenty of cooking space and the free breakfast is a nice bonus. The staff was overall very friendly and helpful. A negative point for some people may be that the dorms come in 6 beds only, but I liked it and the nights were quiet. Although the apartments offer other types of accomodation, but don't know anything about them. All in all, a great hostel. Even though it may be a bit more expensive than other hostels in Cairns, it is definitely worth its price!
Best hostel for groups & long termers!”
The rooms are quite nice, large, and clean equipped with a closet, lockers, kitchen, balcony, and own bathroom! It’s on the same street as Gilligan’s and is only a 6-8 minute walk to the esplanade and lagoon! Honestly, it is next to everything you need in Cairns city! It’s def not a party hostel, but it’s great if you are already traveling with a group then just head over to gilligan’s. For long termers, it provides a very clean and quiet place to stay. However, i don’t think many ppl know about it so there isn’t as many long termers here. Note that WiFi doesn’t work well with phones but better with computers. They give you a password that expires in 7 days, but you can always request a new password from reception. Def recommend this hostel!
It’s good location to go anywhere such as Woolworth, Central shopping center and Gilligans club. It’s a bit far from Lagoon but not much. Room condition is good. There is private light and power point at all single bed. Air conditioner work well. You can buy any drink at the bar and breakfast menu is also good. It’s best budget hostel in Cairns city.
Hi Jinhyuk, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review! We really appreciate your feedback and it's great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Safe travels, Bounce Team
Comfortable, well-priced and centrally located ”
This backpackers is located in an excellent position with regard to accessing the main sights of Cairns. It is convenient and close to the main attractions and amenities. The room in which I stayed was clean and spacious. Noise pollution was kept to a minimum thanks to the maintenance of strict rules regarding silence after 11pm. The staff were friendly and amenable if help was requested. My stay at the Northern Guesthouse was enjoyable. The location alone makes this place great value for money. Everything worthwhile visiting is only a short walk from the front door.
I actually I stay first time back packer hotel , I usually stay single room , but this time I chose back packer , it was very fun, cos meet many people many country so, cos if stay single room no one talk, but back packer is talking with people so, really nice , and good location , I would stay again if I come cairns then.
Clean, friendly and centrally located hostel”
The third time I stayed at this retreat was great. After shopping around for a cheaper, equally as central location, I drew a blank. The value for money with reference to the location of this hostel is brilliant. It is a short walk from the main attractions, the staff and helpful, the generous breakfast is included and the rooms are spacious. I would stay here again if in Cairns.
I loved my stay. Clean, friendly. Great set up. Helpful staff. Felt safe and location was fantastic. Will stay again if I'm in Cairns again!
Nice location, comfortable bed, fridge in room”
Cairns is a fascinating place for diving, the Great Barrier Reef is amazing! The town is small, everywhere downtown is walkable. The hostel located at a good place, not too central but very very near. Staff are helpful and friendly!
The first day, i arrived in the early morning at 6:30am in cairns airport and already requested free pickup service online, but the bus didn't show up. Hotel location is good to walk around in the city. I used 6people dorm, the room has a bathroom and kitcken stuffs with a fridge which is also convinenet. On Sunday night, the hotel organised BBQ party which was also impressive. Overrall, i was satisfied with the hotel in a low budget.
Indeed the most comfortable and relaxing hotel in cairns. I enjoy the free movie nite at the upper deck. hotel is within few minutes walk to the shopping mall and lagoon. The only hiccup is that they could not find record of my reservation upon my arrival which I booked and paid through Agoda. But still they gave me a room and I ended up paying for the room again. Went back to the reception again the next day to check and got back my refund after I gave them copy of my agoda reservation and payment.
Convenient location clean room”
Relatively clean & tidy bedroom / bathroom for a hostel. Get lots of free activities daily but not easy to fit in your own schedule if you intended for a short stay in Cairns with some day tour activities already in mind. E.g. Free Sun BBQ available only by 5pm, free sat pancake available only by 11am.
so nice !”
The location was close to city center and the room was big and clean. The big kitchen was comfortable to make a food.
Okay for solo female”
Wifi only available in lounge, not ideal for those who are exhausted returning end of day and don't want to listen to drunken party shrieks. Good standard breakfast, big clean rooms, comfy beds, booked me with all dudes the first night in a six bed dorm which was kinda weird but I'm 30, it's no big deal, maybe would be if I were younger.
lovely hotel and service”
6 girls share an bathroom clean kitchen, free breakfast near city free wifi have a lovely swimming pool travel information centre
Cheap but great place”
Stayed in Northern Greenhouse for 2 nights in the 6-share room. Really enjoyed my stay here. Was very clean and did not find any issues with the accommodation. Front staff was really friendly, making sure that I was briefed of everything I needed to know before moving into my room. Also, special kudos to Jazmine (travel consultant) for suggesting that I do the white water rafting. Had a great time! Overall, you're definitely paying less than the service you're getting. Good place to stay, but may be slightly noisy at night depending on what days you're there.
very nice location within city center zone.
Great hostel, friendly staff, very clean!”
This was the first hostel i stayed in of my travels around Australia, the staff were all very friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious. Enough plugs to charge phones etc, communal areas were great to meet people, good sized kitchen and free BBQ on a Sunday night. The hostel also provided free trips which were great.
Cheap but clean and nice stay for backpackers”
A refund loud Gilligans next block is a place to make a reservation immediately. The Gilligans is the place to play in clubs, noisy places difficult to sleep at night. This is a quiet, clean and nice rooms. The swimming pool is also clean, albeit small breakfast ~!
lovely hostel with friendly service provider”
location is extremely good. mixed shared dorm is comfortable 5 mins walk to the city centre 10 mins walk to the pier staff is nice with smile i love this hostel very much
A nice place to stay”
My stay was very nice. The only bad thing is the noise if your roommates are not considerate. Besides the room is near the street so it's quite noisy at night and in early morning with the garbage truck comes. And some other annoying sounds from the public area. In general it was a wonderful. Reception is helpful and friendly. Location is great. Hotel organizes daily activities and most of them are free. This is very nice they do that.
