Best hostel I've ever stayed in! Super clean and bright, modern design/facilities, big kitchen, nice social areas and Netflix room, perfect location right in the centre of Cairns near the main street/lagoon, views overlooking the espanade. Felt like luxury! 10/10 would recommend!
Literally nothing I didn't like!
Brand new, fantastic facilities. Very helpful staff and awesome location, right on the esplanade
A little bit of street noise coming through, we had a street facing room
Excellent .. best backpackers I've seen/stayed! Hope it can be maintained as nice as it is now. Great central location. Awesome common areas with ocean view and shared facilities. Lovely helpful staff. Tour bookings very helpful.
Ocean view private front room with ensuite. Front room great view but bit street noisy in evenings Bed very basic. Could do with a better quality.. personally I'd be happy to pay extra for a better quality bed especially when already paying for a private room. Questionable alarm system- I was advised that bathroom/shower steam or even deoderant spray could set off the fire alarm! I don't agree it's fair to charge me a fire brigade call out fee of $1500 if the smoke detector alarm goes off from shower steam! (which is what I was advised). That's nonsense.
From start to finish we were made to feel welcome by the friendly staff . We stayed in a Queen room with a balcony which enabled us to watch the Cairns festival Parade and Fireworks and the added bonus of watching people trying to park their cars which at times was hilarious. This was our 2nd stay here and we shall certainly be back. The top floor terrace is a fantastic place to chill out and watch the world go by and the walk in fridge is a great idea. Overall I would highly recommend Global Backpackers to anyone who wants a quality stay in Cairns without paying exorbitant hotel prices. Hats off to Cara on the front desk who always had a smile and a hello for us.
New hostel with good facilities. Everything was new and clean, good size kitchen with everything you need. Basic breakfast included. Nice terrace overlooking the Esplanade. Great location, very close to the port, Railway station 15 min away.
it was all good
