This hostel is quite well located, rooms are good and clean. The kitchens are good and you can borrow stuff at reception for a deposit. The idea with the fridges is really handy, although I found this hostel quite clicky, I think because they're are a lot of long term residents here but I would stay again. Wifi is not... More

I left behind a dress of sentimental value and emailed as soon as I'd realised, an hour after I'd checked out, requesting that I pay to have... More

Had an amazing time at Globetrotters, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are kept clean along with the bathrooms and there is a very nice atmosphere in the hostel. The hammocks in the back garden are a great way to relax and chill.

With a free bi-weekly bbq, free daily breakfast, free amazing wifi and a super awesome staff, the value it provides for your money is hard to find elsewhere in Cairns, or Oz for... More
