Friendly and helpful

Tho this hostel was a little way out of town -- 15 min walk -- they did provide free transport on a regular basis. There was also a voucher for a free meal at the Woolshed in town which was quite adequate and a bit of a bonus when short of cash. Close to other takeaway option. Rooms were clean, not too cramped. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking implements and a shelf/fridge of free stuff left by others which was very handy. Free Wi-fi was great and nice to be able to sit out on the verandas in the hot evenings. Didn't use the pool, tho there was small one to cool off in.

Excellent hostel and I recommend it widely.

This is the best hostel where I have stayed. The staff was very kindly, they made me feel in home and they helped me a lot. I really recommend castaways backpackers, the hostel is very clean, the rooms are nice, and they have all the services mentioned in their review. Also being aware of the time you arrive, despite the flight arrives late at night. I am very grateful to all members of Castaway's backpackers.

Definitely recommend that one!

Really nice and helpful staff and impossibly clean kitchen where you could even use frying pans (really nice). Free wine and cheese night twice a week where you could meet other people. First, we planned to stay only 2 nights, but ended up staying a week, We just loved it!

OUTSTANDING!

We often stay in hostels when traveling (by preference) and this has been one of my favourites. Rooms are clean and beds are great, facilities are awesome and they really make you feel at home. (airport pickups, city dropoffs, free meals at the Woolshed, wine & cheese night). The staff couldn't do enough for us, helping us book trips and try to arrange out-of-the-way activities, and made our stay so much better. Thanks Erin & Laura!!

Brilliant!

Quality hostel!! Definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. the place is always really clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms and communal areas are great. It's a nice size hostel, not too big but not too small, ideal for getting to know new people.

Brilliant

We had an amazing stay here, all the staff were really friendly and helpful with any trips we wanted to organise. The owner Leslie was an absolute diamond and went out of her way to be helpful, she even suggested we could come back and shower in the hostel before flying out from cairns a week after we would have checked out! good location too, free bus to and from town centre and a comfy living room and clean kitchen, what more could a backpacker ask for!
