  1. Gecko’s Backpackers review by Frank V

    Geckos is very good situated in Cairns, with restaurants, shops, harbour, beach, etc. within walking distance. It's not only suitable for backpackers, but you can see it as a simple hostel. So if you don't mind not having a private bathroom and don't want to spend too much money, I can advise this place. The kitchen could be completer and better organised and is only suitable for 2 people cooking at the same time. But in Cairns you don't really need to cook, because if you ask around among the backpackers you can get vouchers for backpackers meals for only 5 - 10 dollar. Many bars and restaurants offer those meals and those are pretty good meals.
