    Did not know there are many stairs to room with private bath. Glad husband is strong to carry our luggage up. We are older and hostelling is for the young. This YHA has nice communal areas and a pool but sometimes uncomfortable when the drunk jerk guys were loud and saying terrible things about women and swearing. That should not be allowed!

    I found the staff very helpful and friendly during my stay and provided were able to provide some great tips. The room I stayed in was clean and I wouldn't have an issue with staying Cairns Central again if I was to be in cairns again.

    We booked the twin room. A basic but clean room. Staff were helpful and the facilities were good. Excellent location.

    Wonderful Place, everything perfect

    Very friendly and helpful staff, from tips about things to do, to doing bookings. Quiet at night, perfect for those who wish to rest. Excelent pancakes in the mornings. I was only surprised to pay for daily storage luggage - other YHAs did this for free. A little bit far from Greyhound bus stop for those who carry heavy backpacks. Overall, great stay, recommend to everybody.

    Chosen for location relating to my travel requirements this time. Always reliable and you know what you are getting. Pancakes are a real bonus too when you get in late. Cheers Christine

    Helpful staff easy to get around town as quite centrally located.

    Had a great time here, nice chilled atmosphere and great people. Quite calm and relaxed which is good most of the time, although after 10:30 it can be hard to stay outside and socialise because of the quiet time policy but there are other areas to go to such as the tv room at this time. Great overall, would recommend and come back to!

    Customer Reviews on

    YHA believes that you should be given a true picture of what other guests have to say about our hostels. That's why when you make a booking on, you will be invited by email to rate your hostel stay upon checkout. These ratings are then published, unedited, whether you give the hostel a good or bad review. Average ratings are calculated based on the last 50 customer submissions.

    We review these ratings daily, and publish any comments, images and tips provided. We don't edit your comments and will publish them whether they are good or bad. However, there are a few instances where we will not publish the comments online:

    Inappropriate or offensive comments

    Any inappropriate and/or offensive comments won't be published.

    Inappropriate or offensive comments include, but are not limited to, personal harassment or discrediting of YHA staff, hate speech, sexually explicit language or swearing.

    Unsubstantiated or incorrect claims

    Hostels will have the right to have negative comments removed if they can prove that claims are unsubstantiated or incorrect. YHA Australia will investigate the claim prior to publishing online. Examples where we have not published a comment for this reason are mostly due to guests mixing up different hostels they had booked.

    Comments including staff names

    Reviews that feature full staff names will not be published, whether in relation to a positive or negative comment. First names of staff will be published in positive comments only.

    If a negative comment is made, all reference to a particular staff member will be removed.

    Changed circumstances in hostels

    If there have been any major changes such as hostel renovations, new management/owners, and we believe the previous ratings are no longer relevant, YHA will remove all submissions and the rating calculations will commence from zero.

    Please note: YHA Australia will not enter into correspondence with the reviewer whether a comment is suitable or not.
