Gilligan's is the best choice if you are staying in the northern city of Cairns, in the State of Queensland, Australia. If you want to visit the Great Barrier Reef or Diantree rainforest it is best to base yourself in Cairns for a few days and what better place than this hostel-resort which is cheap and only five minutes from downtown. The facilities are very good. You can choose rooms with 4, 6 or 8 beds which are very affordable: about 13 to 18 euros per night. The rooms are ensuite and in general all the facilities are new and well maintained. Other facilities include a nightclub, a swimming pool, bar, restaurant, telephone booths, travel agency, terrace etc. It is the best hostel I've ever stayed in, do not hesitate if you are staying in Cairns.
When we arrived at Cairns Airport we notified the hotel from a phone with transport services and in 10 min they were there to pick us up. The room was perfectly cozy, there was an amazing pool, a great breakfast, a very friendly staff and a restaurant I definitely recommend. It isn´t in the center of Cairns but it was nice to rest for the night. The beach (or the reedbed with warnings of ´danger crocodiles´) is just a short stroll away and a little further along you´ll come to the center.

If you´re looking for a place which is relatively close to the CBD of Cairns, this camp site offers really cheap and good service. It is a different kind of camp site, as it has different bungalows or cabins as they are called in Australia, and with different configurations according to the price. We stayed in a cabin without a bathroom but it had a cooker, fridge, sink, table, sofa, bed, 32 inch TV and air conditioning. The bathrooms were straight ahead as you open the door. The campground has a swimming pool, decorated like a pirate ship with a slide. It also has washers and dryers which you have to pay for but they are cheap, as well as an iron and its corresponding table (no charge.) To get to Cairns, if you have no car, you can go by bus. Opposite the entrance to the campsite there is a bus stop where two lines stop going downtown and go quite often. Highly recommended.
With plenty of bedrooms, single and doubles, and canvas huts, this complex offers a warm welcome. It has a bar with excellent food, direct access to the beach, and a swimming pool. And its location is fantastic, right in the beautiful tropical forest. In short, if you want to discover this region and its wildlife, while staying in a welcoming place, look no further!
A good place to stay in Cairns if you want to avoid the noisier places, and prefer a bit of peace and quiet. It is cleaner than some other hostels, with a variety of rooms (singles, doubles, apartments for 5...). There are showers, toilets, kitchens, swimming pool and a very nice garden. The couple who run it really are charming, always willing to help no matter what the problem. There's a bus stop in front, and it's close to the centre of Cairns.
A very nice hotel, very well located and quiet, with a jacuzzi, facing the Holloways Beach. Close to small shops, near the centre of Cairns, 10-15 minutes from the esplanade. A small cafe restaurant and convenience store right beside the sea.
This small hotel, dating back to 1930, is a real find in Cairns, the base city if you want to visit the Great Barrier Reef. Old-style accommodation in a relaxed family atmosphere. In the lobby, there's a beautiful piano and a staircase leading upstairs to the rooms. They are exquisite, tastefully decorated, and some with sea views. There are several wicker chairs out front, where you can relax while watching the sea. At the back is a small pool and a barbecue. The cost is below the city average, but still not exactly cheap.
A good hotel with tropical gardens, swimming pool and two restaurants. The service was excellent, but we only stayed one day, so we couldn't enjoy it that much. The hotel offers Wi-Fi, mini-bar, and terraces overlooking the gardens.
The Lakes Cairns Resort offers a unique, warm and convenient accommodation. It is a 4 star hotel, with all the services and installations of an international hotel. We offer 1, 2 or 3 rooms fully equipped with AC as well as luxury apartments. The interior and living room have long balconies that emerge from the interior of modern living room.
This is without a doubt one of the main tourist centers in Australia because it is right on the Great Barrier Coral Reef. It is ideal for those who want a relaxing holiday in the middle of a natural environment with peace and harmony. Guests have a variety of services.
I really need to write a review for the best hostel I found during my trip to Australia. It's called Dreamtime, and you'll find it in Cairns. If you're in town, check it out! Clean, warm, and sociable, the staff are friendly and genuine. Without a doubt, number one!
The hotel was built in 2003 and then remodeled that very same year. From The Cairns Plaza Hotel, you have the most spectacular views of Trinity Bay, as it is located right on the banks of the river. It sits throughout the mountains and is only a short walk from the main shopping commercial. Each room contains a queen size bed and a single, or three singles or two queens .. Each room also has a private bath with mountain or city views.
