      Horrible staff, great facilities”

      Staff were incompetent - nobody was responsible or accountable. One night a person entered our private room at 4am because one of the staff members gave them the wrong key. A few nights were sleepless because of the amount of noise that guests were making in the common area. This occurred even after informing staff about the noise. The room was only cleaned once out of 8 nights even though we were told it was going to be cleaned every day. The facilities were good. Everything was very clean and the shuttle bus was great. Wouldn’t recommend if you are going to Cairns for the activities. More of a place to party.

      Not worth the expense ”

      A lack of cleanliness in the private en-suite was an instant turn off (shower plug was packed with hair and filthy) as was the rest of the shower (hairs all over the sink and tiles) and the carpets were filthy ... so much so I put my do not disturb sign up throughout my stay to avoid any attempts by wokers to come in and ‘clean’ with what I presumed are the same dirty cleaning materials used throughout the hostel.
