    Best Hostels in Cairns

    This city is a big ol’ holiday resort city. It’s definitely the place to go for holiday fun – and works as a very decent jumping off point to explore the islands of the Great Barrier Reef. But it’s more than that. Hot and humid, the city still has a soul; it’s a friendly and laid-back city with a slow pace.

    It is decidedly geared towards tourism, however, with many souvenir shops, restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes – I mean, I’m not complaining! Again, find out where to stay in Cairns first, and the whole decision of finding a hostel will be a lot easier.

    The private rooms make this one of the most amazing hostels for couples in Brisbane, which are sleak and contemporary with enough space for the pair of you to spread out. The outdoor pool is great for sunbathing and chatting to other guests if that’s your thing. There’s also a fitness center and BBQ, plus an outdoor terrace for unwinding on.
