Man at Front desk was rude. No air con, super hot. Wifi sucks. Tons of mosquitos.”
I arrived at front desk w/ all my luggage ready to check in when I came up to counter and said, Hello :) The older man said Hi then immediately looked away at his computer. No welcome or greeting whatsoever. I then said is this the reception? He says.. yep. I then say, well i'm here to check in. He then says..."Oh yeah? Why's that? Sadly he was not joking around. So rude & completely unwelcoming. Rubbed me the wrong way from the start. The rooms are HOT, the common areas are HOT. They have tall plants all around the property which keeps humidity in even more. Constantly being bit by mosquitos. The internet constantly goes out and you have to carry around your wifi pass because it's complicated & each person gets a unique code which is a royal pain in the a**. Plus if you lose it, the reception might be out because they take breaks for hours at a time. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Too many other options in Cairns with air con. Do yourself a favor and just don't stay here.

Friendly staff, cool vibe”
I was only there one night and it bucketed down with rain the entire time which was a shame but it was still a cool place to stay. The staff are friendly and the place is set up really well with lots of chill out areas. The pool looked awesome and free WiFi and coffee were a nice touch! Handy location to central cairns.

Great Stay!”
Great kitchen, good communal areas and clean bedroom. The staff were very friendly and helped us considerably with our tour bookings. The only thing that let it down was the WiFi in our rooms, which was nonexistent! Very temperamental. Shame as it would of been a 5/5! I would still recommend this place however!

Definitely one of the best hostel I've ever stayed. The staffs are very friendly and helpful, the rooms and bathrooms is quite clean, other area even cleaner! Also they have free wifi (although some rooms get weak or no wifi signal), free stuff in the kitchen, pizza night, bbq night, good location, etc. I like the decor, hippie ambience and most of all they have night rules to keep the noise down. The only downside is you have to pay $1 for 3 hours air con and it sounds like a Harley lol. But that's nothing. Recommended!

Poor sound insulation and facility”
Even you closed door you can still hear people walking and packig in another room. For the restrooms, their light will automatically turn off after 1-2mins, it's quite scary when you are showering or going to toilet at night and the restroom in second floor is so dirty.... Also, you need to insert coins for 3 hours aircon which means you need to wake in the midnight for that. Altho I like the design of the public area (the car in the middle with light decor at night) , I won't recommend this hostel because I have lived in another hostel nearby which is a lot better with similar price.

Best hostel I've ever been to”
Seriously, this is the best hostel that I've ever been to, and I've been to quiet a few! The only thing, that might not be considered perfect, is that there weren't enough pans. Would strongly recommend staying here!

Location is close enough & easy walking distance to center. Coles and shopping center across the street. Gaby was great ! The facilities are quirky but that is part of what makes this. There was a smaller, second kitchen in the upstairs, which was convenient. The atmosphere is laid back and seems mature for a young crowd. No unusual noise / parties. The room is functional and here are some considerations: It is close to the small kitchen so can be noisy. The room itself is as if it had no walls ref the noise. It has no outside window if you're looking for one. The fan had only one speed, HIGH, and the there was a 1AUD$ per 3 hours for the AC. I did not use the AC, but would have loved a lower speed on the fan. Reception closes from 1-4. If you arrive during that time, call the number if you hadn't received an email. I was advised one was sent twice but for some reason it was not received in my inbox, clutter or junk mail. If you're not bothered by any of that it's a good place. Internet speed was good. Luggage store is available. Cozy areas for chilling out available. Funky interior decorations in the public facilities. Bathrooms/showers clean. Washers & dryers on site. No BYOB.

Great Place and Staff!”
I booked on a whim and couldn't be happier. The showers were clean, had plenty of hot water (even just after someone else took a shower), and there were enough around the hostel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There are lots of common space but even when there are people out there the rooms remain quiet. My only complaint is that the door to my room was very loud when opening and shutting so if people come in/leave during the night or early in the morning it can disturb others. I tried to do a quiet open and close but the latch is loud so I hope I didn't wake anyone when I left early in the morning. Sorry! I recommend Dreamtime and it's a great place to stay at. If you pop over to the shop across the street and make your meals at the fully equipped kitchen you can make your time in Cairns affordable.

Perfect!”
More than happy with everything. It's a nice and sociable hostel with a cozy atmosphere - not a party hostel tho (which i really appreciate!) The staff is very friendly and helpful, there's a tour office where you can book your adventures and get your questions answered. Kitchen and all the facilities are in good condition. There are lots of events going on, so even when you travel alone you'll get in touch with people. I didn't know how to get to the hostel, so i took an Uber from the airport for $16 which is a reasonable price (turns out a bus trip is almost the same). The hostel is located next to a mall, where you can buy food and everything else you need. Thumbs up!

Cosy, budget private room with clean toilets”
We stayed in private rooms with shared toilets in 3 top-rated hotels across Cairns, Port Douglas and Daintree but found Dreamtime to be the best. Location: Right opposite Dreamtime is a pedestrian walkway that takes you to Cairns Central mall. The esplanade is 10 mins walking distance from there. There is plenty of parking available around Dreamtime. Staff: The staff is helpful. Printed my boarding pass as well as unlocked my door when I forgot the keys inside. Hygiene: Rooms are very clean. The toilets, very close to the private room area, were always found to be tidy. Room: Cozy room with decent space to have all your luggage. Just like it looks in pictures. 100 MB of wi-fi is sufficient.Air-con is chargeable at a meager 1$. All in all, great value for money!
