1   Horrendous place with scary owner Avoid this place like the plague! We stayed one night and it was riddled with bedbugs. When we posted a negative review on a travel website, we then received daily death threats for 2 weeks. If it weren't for being 1000 miles away from Cairns now, we would have reported to the police. Very scary. Stay anywhere else!
Antwort der Unterkunft: Hey Alex. You stayed here 3 years ago and that's when you were unlucky to have come across a bed bug that another traveller bought into the hostel as this is how they get here in the first place. We have not had any bed bugs since. You had the ordacity to post a review after I kindly refunded all your money that I did not have to and I told you that the room would be closed down and not open again until I was absolutely 100% certain it was okay. That's why I abused you as you did not have to advertise what happened but instead I thought you would be understanding and happy that I gave you your money back. You and your girlfriend just abused the hostel and have no respect or what so ever. WE HAVE HAD NO BED BUGS AT ALL FOR THE LAST FEW YEARS SINCE YOUR UNFORTUNITE EXPERIENCE. Then in 8/2015 you post a review here worded as if this happened this year. MAY GOD HELP YOU. I JUST DO NOT UNDERSTAND THAT YOU JUST DID NOT APPRECIATE THAT I REFUNDED YOUR BOOKING.  , age 30, England ()
1   Warning! The guy who runs this place, Peter, is a volatile control freak and a threatening bully, every inch a sociopath when he doesn't have his way. He will target the elderly and anyone weaker than he is. He is gutless when it counts. Avoid this creep and the cheap outfit he runs.
Antwort der Unterkunft: Hey John. CAN YOU BE SPECIFIC IN WHAT EXACTLY YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT? THE ONLY GUTLESS FREAK IS YOU TO SAY NASTY THINGS ABOUT ME AFTER YOU HAVE CHECKED OUT. IF YOU WERE A MAN THEN YOU WOULD FACE ME FACE TO FACE AND TELL ME WHAT YOUR MENTAL PROBLEM IS. PLEASE CHECK YOURSELF IN TO SEE THE MENTALIST DOCTORS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.  , age 30, American ()

Antwort der Unterkunft: Hi Ben. There were no bed bugs found in your room after you had called me and informed me about your rash. I am sorry for whatever the rash may of come from however we have had no bed bugs here for the past years. All the best and thanks for staying with us.  , austraila ()
1   The worst hostel experience in my life Gecko's Backpackers is advertised to be "a quiet place", which means that it's not permitted to drink alcohol or party there after 10 pm. The quietness would work better with some kind of isolation; now the walls let every possible sound in, and as the house is old, someone walking around the corridors makes enough noise to wake you up. The big street just next to Gecko's is pretty noisy too. The lack of good air conditioning made at least me want to keep the window open all day and night long, and it was still almost too hot to sleep inside (in wintertime). The "free internet access 24 hours a day" turned out to be two cables for the whole hostel, and most of the time they're both taken. The receptionist/owner is a middle-aged talkative man from whom it's difficult to get your turn to speak. He's really eager and helpful with finding you something to do and booking tours -– probably because he gets 15 % of the price to himself. He's still kind enough to get you some discount, paid from his own part of the deal, which is pretty nice. After the third time I grew a bit fed up with listening to his praise to the great discount and his own kindness, which is included in the deal, but that's small. But there's another thing that's not small, at least not for me: if you go to Gecko's, prepare to be satisfied with everything you get. Otherwise the receptionist will blame you on "being negative" and use quite hard language to be heard from someone who actually takes your money. I was called "ridiculous" and "silly" because I was disappointed with the internet connection, and there was no way even to agree to disagree. He said that he wants to keep up good spirit and a positive atmosphere in Gecko's, which is a really nice idea. I just think that the best way to do that isn't shouting to everyone who's not positive enough and threaten them with throwing them out if they don't start to be satisfied right away. Something that Gekko's is, it's cheap. I'd still choose another place to go.
Antwort der Unterkunft: THATS RIGHT I REMEMBER NOW NO MATTER HOW MUCH I TRIED TO HELP YOU YOU WERE NOT HAPPY. I EVEN LET YOU USE MY OFFICE COMPUTER AND OH MY GOD YOU WERE STILL NOT HAPPY. SO THERE IS ONLY ONE THING I CAN SAY MAY GOD HELP YOU AND GET WELL.  , Finland ()
5   A very enjoyable stay -- most relaxing Very clean and quiet hostel. Met some interesting fellow travelers and had a great last night with them around the pool and BBQ. I will be moving back through Cairns in six months and have already booked to stay here again. Its good for drinking the goon and it is possibly the greatest backpackers in the world!  , UK ()
5   A great place to stay in Cairns A quiet and very clean hostel. Great tropical garden with pool and BBQ area. I ended up staying an extra two nights.  , England ()
1   Owner was Sh*t I stayed two nights, the first was ok. just sat around the picnic table with a few people having drinks. the second night the owner came out and started screaming at us telling us that hes sick of coming out every night and telling people to shut up, so he turned the lights out. he singled out one employee and ended up making her cry, called her a whore in front of seven others and then effed off. The morning after i asked for a word with Peter (the owner) and said that it was kind of unprofessional to have acted the way he did, and he cut me off in mid sentence and said, "that it! grab your bags and get the f*** out of here!" next thing i knew he was threatening me telling me he would crack my head on the floor and then he would take me in his truck and i would never come back. completely ridiculous and rude to act that way to someone who is paying for accommodation. don't stay at Gecko's!
Antwort der Unterkunft: YES I REMEMBER YOU. YOU WERE ABUSING OTHER GUESTS BY BEING DRUNK AND ACTING LIKE AN IDIOT KEEPING PEOPLE AWAKE FROM THEIR SLEEP. MOST OF YOUR REVIEW IS ALL LIES AND I DEFINITELY DID NOT CALL ANYONE A WHORE. GROW UP AND HAVE RESPECT FOR OTHER PEOPLE ESPECIALLY IN A SHARED FACILITY.  , Canada ()
