Will never go back to this place”
Facilities were evidently old and dirty. I've rented a private room for 4 nights and wanted to get out of there the first day I arrived there. The place felt so unsafe. Couldn't sleep well. They do have a policy that it should already be quiet at 10 pm but then again groups of people were still hanging out in the common area talking to each other so loudly accompanied with loud music and people laughing out loud even banging on tables. I would say, if you love parties and loud people this place is great for you, but if you are looking for a safe and quiet place to spend the night after a tiring day, then don't go to this place. Found great places near the lagoon at affordable prices but it was too late for me to move as I've already paid full on line and they don't do refunds. Will never go back to this place.

Not a bad hostel”
The hostel is nice, the atmosphere is really great, the facilities looks clean, and the wifi only works in the common areas. The only problem is that you cannot have visits, no one can go to see you, not even in the front of the reception, at any time, something that I never see in a hostel before. I asked to the manager if my girlfriend could be with me from 5pm to 6pm seated in the entrance, before she had to go to work, and the owner didn't allow her to stay. The rest of the staff is really great.

Amazing stay!”
I had an amazing stay at Asylum Cairns. The hostel is very chilling and the atmosphere is very good for people who like to make new friends and have fun or to just chill. There are many things to take part in, such as the pants down party and karaoke night. The staff is just fantastic. They are super friendly and helpful. They always have a solution for anything you need help with. They really helped me out a lot and made my stay there unforgettable. Special thanks to Janet, Georgina, Heidi, Harvey, Sebastian, Fish and Joe. You guys rock!

Fabulous staff, great value for money ”
Staff, value for money and Monday BBQ (4 dollars only!)
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Asylum Cairns. Though slightly out of the city (10 min walk to Esplanade), I found the peace of the hostel to my liking. The room was big and spacy, and loved their kitchen. As the fan in my room wasn't working, I was moved to an AIRCON room for free and I was grateful for that. However the best thing about this hostel has to be their staff, be it Joe, Anne-Kathrine, Anne or Nick. I will recommend this place to people for a great Cairns experience.

Good value for the price I am paying”
Staff, friendly atmosphere, good social setting.
It is good for the price I am paying. I feel i have been treated better than a four star hotel. I was introduced to all the guests in the hostel. Pants Down Party was fun and the $4 all you can eat bbq is cheaper than Cambodian food. Toilets are clean and big kitchen area to do my own cooking. The hostel is quiet at night and I have good undisturbed sleep. The english guy helping out at reception is a legend. He gives a good shoulder massage and it is free.

バックパッカー宿としては普通の宿と価格”
アゴダ紹介文の『市から37.5km』は間違いです。徒歩でケアンズ駅から15分、ケアンズ空港から90分です。鉄道は殆ど廃線なのかキュランダまで往復13,4$のバス乗り場があります。 炊事洗濯が出来るのはバックパッカー宿の標準なんでしょうかね。ケアンズ(駅)セントラルビルの食品スーパーで昨日売れ残り肉が3$/2kgなど(開店直ぐ売り切れた)で国内では不可能な食肉三昧やりました。 金欠観光には最適な環境です。部屋にテレビありません。 客の殆どが白人系で笑顔が多い中でも、人見知り?高齢アジア人への警戒???人見知りする人もいるので触らず流しておきましょう。
