Asylum Cairns welcomes you with open arms. We make an effort to know each and every guest by name and ensure that you get to know your fellow-inmates. If you want to make friends, have fun and laugh lots, this is the hostel for you. Asylum Cairns is an old spacious hostel with a true backpackers feel. Go elsewhere if you want an impersonal hotel style hostel! Asylum Cairns is not for the unsocial, clinical, sterile and those with way too much money. You will have loads of fun at the Asylum and save as much you can. It is a good place to make many friends. Do not come here if you are not social and wish to be left alone. The atmosphere is far from sterile and definitely suitable for first-time travelers who may find it hard to make that first move in making new friends. At Asylum Cairns, you're free to chill out by the pool and our front gardens, or party hard! We provide free airport pickups, free high-speed WiFi, USB power to every bed (in selected dorms) and we are the one of the only hostels that allows you to BYOB! At Asylum you're more than welcome to bring your own drinks! We even have a large fridge in the lounge area dedicated to your booze!

Me and my girlfriend stayed here in our van for about 5 nights in total. We totally loved this place, and would probably have stayed shorter in Cairns if it wasn't for it. Leslie was so friendly and a genuinely good guy. This place offers: -Relaxed and good vibes. -Clean and tidy surroundings -Perfect location -Secure spot for a car -Good people Thanks!
