    At the very heart of CairnsI had originally booked into a room with shared facilities but for $10 they "upgraded" me. Room was large & clean with all that you would expect (although no view). Of course, you can't be more central in Cairns than Hides Corner -- eateries, "Irish pubs", souvenir shops, museums, even a branch of the local university within one block. Staff were friendly & very helpful. Excellent light breakfast supplied.

    Ideal location”

    Location in the centre of the city.

    I was in Cairns for a wedding so chose to stay at Hides because of its location and because its excellent value for money. Check in was efficient, there is a lift to the floor you require, there are a large number of rooms but not much walking required to get there. I was in a room that had two beds, toilet and shower. It was clean and comfortable. I did experience some noise from girls next door but not too bad. It was walking distance to all the things I needed so was happy there and when in Cairns with or without transport I will continue to stay there.

    Location, charm, patio

    We stayed just one night here, the place has tons of charm. The patio is awesome to peoplewatch, and for breakfast, the location is superb, in the heart of town. Maybe a bit too much so, as it can get noisy in the evening. It's a lovely old building, and has kept its charm, highly recommended.

    Good location, friendly staff and close to all outdoor activities

    The room was on the small side but the bathroom was nice and big. It's got a nice feel to it, very old heritage style. However, our room was just above some bars downstairs and the noise in the night was a bit of a nuisance. Found 3 bed bugs on the 1st night. Overall it is an ok hotel to stay if you are on a budget and I will consider coming back to stay again. The people in Cairns are really friendly.

    Reasonable price and convenient position. Staff helpful providing useful information. Good garage facility.

    we stayed in an en-suite room which was spacious and had been recently decorated. it was fairly simple but as the price was very cheap and the continental breakfast included i was very impressed. the reception staff were very helpful and allowed me to leave the car in the garage until 5.30pm on the day of departure. i would definitely stay there again.

    The location is exactly in CBD in Cairns city ,awesome that is close to a supermarket, and heaps shops. staff is not too bad, alright. room is kinda acceptable, BUT its very noisy every night that there is a pub downstairs till 2 or 3 am. I think it depends where your room is,but almost visitor must not be able to sleep well.

    Third time unlucky”

    Third stay at Hides. Previous two stays were good. Tried a Heritage room this last time (apparently an older room of the hotel), and disappointing night's sleep. Basically too close to the Shields (mall) side as I was on the balcony. Hotel (bar) cleaner below started using an air blower at 4:30am cleaning up after the night before (Sunday night of a long weekend), which was also fairly loud until late. Go a Superior room further inside the hotel. Much quieter. Breakfast as usual, can't complain. Location very central. Staff good. WiFi poor in rooms.

    Great location, small niggles”

    It's inexpensive but they charge for normally free things such as wifi (which did not work so they refunded my money), and there is an in-room safe but they charge you for the key. My room had frosted windows and the A/C was very weak. I changed to another hotel due to these irritations. However, breakfast on the veranda was simple but good although road works in the street directly below are noisy and look likely to be ongoing for a while
