2/10 Poor

I already wrote a review about this place. It wasn’t advertised as a hostel and when I got there I needed to download an application (Goki), which did not work to open the main door. There wasn’t any manager either, just a guy without a shirt who changed the combination number given to me through email. He obviously knew the combination of my room, even when I changed it in front of him as he looked at it along with his friend. I got a bad vibe about the place, used the restroom, which was filthy, and booked for another place. I WANT EXPEDIA TO REFUND ME.

Great location! Couple of things to improve. My room had no hangers for towels, shelves for personal belongings, had a small locker with no hands! Needs a stronger enforcement of curfew to noise in main room area. Great location CBD walking distance to a lot of dining areas in the marina

Super location. Walking distance to restaurants, supermarket, Esplanade, meeting spot for local tours. Clean (except for the kitchen). Stuffy in room & public area (probably due to the somewhat tropical weather of Cairns).
