Is a nice and quiet place to rest. People in general is very nice. The receptionist Alejandro was very helpful, always trying to make us feel like home and answering all our inquiries. I highly recommend staying in this hostel.
Castaway Backpackers is a quick taxi ride from the airport and a short walk to the centre of Cairns. It's not right in the centre so it is quiet at night. Everyone there was lovely and the staff were very helpful.
I really like the atmosphere, young and perfect. All the hostel is very clean. I really enjoy the location in he city, and the staff
Lovely receptionist Renata and helpful owner who made you feel very welcomed. Miss you guys!
This hostel is exactly as it should be. Sevres standard. No bunk beds is a plus.
20 minutes walk to Cairns center but it's not a problem.
