It has a maximum of only 70 guests so it is easy to make lifelong friends here. It is not a Cairns party hostel, and has 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.

Cairns City Backpackers Hostel 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.
