Lonely Planet review
This is an earthy backpackers where you just might find some peace and quiet (10.30pm quiet time is strictly enforced). Slate-floored rooms are clean, and the cheap verandah rooms are cosy. Two kitchens and a barbecue area make life easier.
Our independent authors have visited Cairns City Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Cairns.
