Cairns City Backpackers

Backpacker Hostel

3.5 from 4 users


Cairns City Backpackers is small, peaceful, very tropical, and best of all it is ideally located in a quiet backstreet just a short walk from the heart of Cairns and a 5 minute walk to Cairns Central Shopping Centre. We have a maximum of only 53 guests so it is easy to make lifelong friends here. We are not a party hostel, and have a quiet time/no drinking time from 10.30 pm to allow guests to get a good nights sleep. You can get vouchers for discounted pub meal for the evening so you can enjoy dinner out on a budget. Cairns City Backpackers is surrounded by tropical gardens and features a cute swimming pool and lots of outdoor furniture for you to chill out in. We have full coin laundry, large guest washing line and 3 guest kitchens. There's free Wifi for keeping in touch with friends and folks back home.

Stayed here a couple of nights. Best part of this hostel is the resident cat! Cheap double room but you get what you pay for... The sheets were clean but literally nothing else was, the floor was gritty and the hostel walls were VERY thin so it's quite noisy and not private at all. Huge cockroach in our room on the second night plus loads of little flies and ants. Kitchens were absolutely filthy and like the floors have never been swept and mopped. Renovations were happening in the room next to us so there was drilling and construction all day. I hope the rooms are nicer in future

Very dirty and smelly! Really needs updating and a serious deep clean! I would not recommend.
