Awesome staff, BEST EVER location
Traveling around Australia I have stayed at so many hostels but this one has been the best so far! Everything i wanted to do in Cairns was so easy to get to, the lagoon is across the road and so is the reef terminal so i only had to walk for 4 minutes to get on the boat for the dive trip I did. The staff always talked to me and made me feel welcome which is a nice change from most hostels Ive stayed in where they forget about you after you check in! I will stay here again when I'm back in Cairns for sure.

Worst hostel I've ever stayed in
Really bad hostel, do not stay here! Guy who worked there kept coming into our room and shouting at us in the morning for no reason, saying we were too loud when we weren't and that we had the air conditioning on too much. Absolute twat! I was traveling alone and a couple of the people in my room may have been a bit loud on occasions, but thats no reason to kick everyone in that room out when everyone is traveling separately! Too expensive for what it is too, the hostels along the sea front are all too expensive, stay in one further back. As for people who say there is a "free meal" next door, the free meal i used to get was smaller than a kids portion, absolutely tiny! so yeah, its free, but dont base staying here on that because you will need to buy some more food to fill you up! therefore all in all, the international hostel is wank!

Awful! Don't bother staying here
Room was dirty, poor bathroom facilities, very noisy central open corridor running throughout height of building. Rude staff (including the manager who stayed in our room with two random girls -- nice!)-- we complained and had no apology, hence this posting!

  Great location, excellent food, nice relaxing TV lounge overlooking a great view, and all at a reasonable price. I liked this one a lot. However, I would recommend you NOT use their booking service as they seem highly motivated by commissions and misled me as to what I was included on the dive boat, so I ended up paying for things like certified dives that they had told me were included.

  This is a good hostel made superb by the staff. Basic rooms, great views, and a free meal every night. The staff go out of their way to help you out and it made us stay for a good few nights more than we were planning.

  Absolutely the best value in Cairns. Given its location, the free dinner next door, and the budget price, it hardly matters that the double room we had was basic. An airconditioned room at this price is great value!

  This hostel was fine as far as I could see, good and cheap, grat location by the lagoon, clean and a nice sized kitchen. Staff were helpful and the free meal in the pub next door was a nice touch.
