Folks adore this little hippy hostel, hidden away in a side street behind Cairns Central Shopping Centre. It's intimate, inviting and less party-centric than many of Cairns' other offerings. A range of room types – from three-, four- and six-bed dorms to single, twin and deluxe double rooms – is available. Air-conditioning costs $1 per three hours.
