With a maximum of only 63 guests 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.

However,the free dinners at the Woolshed Pub will help save you money and let you party till late.

It is a tropical oasis with a fully landscaped tropical rainforest garden which includes many grand old palm trees, a cute swimming pool and lots of hammocks and sun lounges for you to chill out in.

Naturally Cairns City Backpackers has full laundry and kitchen facilities and for keeping in touch with friends we have cheap internet. Don’t forget to bring your laptops because we have wireless as well!

Located just out of the city centre and is a 15 min walk into the City and Esplanade, which makes it quieter and out of the rush of the city and nightclubs.

  1. Cairns City Backpackers review by Georgia S

    I had an awesome week at this hostel. So many friendly people there. Apparently it's under new management and are slowly making a few improvements (beds, gardens as far as I can see). Nice pool and community area. Tropical feel. Definitely budget but it had everything I needed. Free internet! and air conditioning in the dorms was free too. I booked a couple of tours and they gave me a discount. The staff are very kind and helpful. Would stay again. Room Tip: I stayed in a 6 share and it was very good
