This historic hotel is a Cairns heritage building. A bit more expensive than a backpackers, but worth it. It's hard to beat the location, and the breakfast buffet is very good. Shared bathrooms are clean and spacious, staff is very friendly and helpful.More

Yes. However you won't get any sleep if your room is in the historical part of hotel. The noise from the pubs below goes until about 4am! You can't close the windows in the bathroom. Good luck
