Cheap place to stay in central Cairns
Pros: prime location (right in the city centre), nice pool, big kitchen, aircon in dorms works very well, parking available on site (paid). Cons: reception isn't 24h, which means you won't be able to leave your luggage at the hostel if you checkout early in the morning to go to the boat tours. Toilets ran out of paper, bunk bed is very squeaky, no individual light, no individual power point by the bed, lots of older people (over 50) staying long term (which breaks the youth hostel atmosphere in my view)
