    Pretty nice place!
    Qing H August 2016
    Very friendly staff and good location near supermarkets and the beach. Very interesting common areas with swimming pools and tables to stay and socialize with others. Appreciated free activities proposed like pancakes every mornings and wine and cheese. Clean and very functional also for families. The best YHA we visited from Brisbane to Cairns.

    Staff=awesome Bunk room=awesome and safe Bathrooms=awesome, modern, new, clean, the best part of my stay! Atmosphere=friendly, fun, inviting Overall I had an amazing stay at the Cairns Central YHA and will definitely be recommending it to my friends! I think is has the best location of any Cairns hostel because it's near all the action but not to close that you can still hear it when trying to go to bed early. Also, it's located right across the street from all the shops you need! Awesome place!!

    J'ai trouvé le YHA très propre, mais beaucoup trop grand à mon goût, et du coup les gens ne se parlent pas vraiment.....

    Really great place to stay. Travelling on my own I felt safe and looked after. The staff were excellent, helpful, and friendly. Met some lovely people and I wasn't the only one there over 55 year's young so I didn't feel out of place amongst the younger ones.

    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.
