This was the second hostel we stayed in in Cairns and by far the better of the two! It is a chilled place where you can just relax and hang out and meet new people. The rooms are clean and comfortable and each bed has its own little space which we really liked. The manager Nick was awesome, really friendly...

This is the best hostels I stayed at coming up the east coast. Not a party hostel so perfect for a good night sleep. It's clean and very cozy. The staff are friendly and the free BBQ and pancakes for breakfast are a definite bonus. Would definitely come again.

We first stayed at Globetrotters in Nov 2016. We originally booked for a weeks stay and ended up staying for 7 weeks. Clean dorm rooms, bathrooms, kitchens and communal areas. The hostel has a great cleaning team, so it's always immaculate! You get a good free breakfast every morning and a free BBQ twice a week. In the time we've...

The fantastic staff, relaxed atmosphere, clean facilities have made for a brilliant stay at Globetrotters. Own personal fridges, ovens available, free breakfast, free wifi and a free BBQ twice a week, this hostel goes above and beyond to make their guests feel welcome. I would definitely recommend it for passers by.

I have been in this hostel and it's great. The rooms are really spacious and they also have a great variety in the breakfast and bbq twice a week. The wifi is unlimited and you can use it everywhere without a problem. The common areas are really relaxing and everything is perfectly clean, that is quite hard to find in...

This hostel is by far the best hostel in cairns. If you're looking for a place that is friendly, quiet & a home away from home then look no further. I came here as a solo traveller and within 2 days of being here I felt like I had stayed here for a year. The staff are super friendly and...

Chill hostel with lots of outdoor space. The dorms were great: nice beds, clean and air conditioned. Good facilities for cooking and laundry. The staff is friendly and helpful. Especially when they forwarded a letter that arrived there after I left to another place. I would definitely stay here again! :)

Really enjoyed This hostel- was the nicest one we stayed in in our four weeks in Australia. The rooms were great and the bunks beds were really comfortable and the free breakfast they had in the morning was also good and all for a reasonable price

One of the nicest hostels I've stayed in. They provided a shuttle to and from the airport for only $10, and checking in and out (even after hours) was a breeze. Rooms were clean and welcoming, and the free brekky was nice. There was even a free sausage sizzle the night I stayed over, and it's located within walking distance...
