Great stay!”

I really enjoyed my 3 nights I stayed here in Cairns. As soon as I arrived I felt at home and welcome by the lovely staff and was able to check in early around 11.30 am. The room I had was a queen room and was really nice. I was on the floor where kitchen and belcony was which was handy. I booked a white water rafting tour through the hostel which was fun. I met some cool people at global and had a relaxed stay. The place is nice and clean and has everything you need. It is right in the action on the Esplanade where you want to stay in Cairns. I will be back next time in Cairns.

Great location and great staff. Only negative is that the room with a view doesn't really have a view as it is at tree level height.

Stunning view and great location”

Hostel located right opposite of Esplanade Lagoon. Next to Mcdonalds and 3min walk to Woolworths. Receptionist Laura is so helpful and friendly. I'm in love with the 4th floor open concept kitchens and living area I spend at least 4 to 5 hours sitting there to watch sunrise or sunset. The only hostel in Australia I had ever stayed with seaview. Kitchen is huge and clean. The only thing is imperfect was housekeeping. I been staying for 4days and 3nights. The floor mat was dirty since the day I checked in and not changing until I checked out. I can only see the rubbish was thrown and toilet roll and towel were refills. But definitely I will be back!

The best place to stay”

I have been here for two night on my holiday, and I wanted to stay more! The room was very clean and everything is brand new. The best location and viewing in the city, I could watch whatever I want on Netflix for free. They provided free breakfast from 7am to 9am, and when I got home I did not have to pay for Uber fare!! The staffs are really friendly, especailly thanks Ciara.

Hi Kiseung Thank you so much for your great review! We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and took advantage of the new amenities that we have. We do have the best view in town and you're right - you don't need to catch an Uber home with our location if you are out and about in the city. We will definitely pass on to the staff that you enjoyed your holiday with us and hopefully we will see you again soon! Thanks! The Global Team
