Globetrotters International is the best hostel I have stayed at. I arrived late at night, around 2am. There was a night receptionist on duty (not a common thing in my experience), and he got us set up right away. The room is small, but very clean. The beds are comfortable and the sheets are good quality. The air conditioner is...

Globetrotters International is probably the best hostel i've stayed in. Love the hammocks in the back, the race simulator in the lounge and the people around. The free breakfast and the free bbq are really nice. It's very clean and quiet! Probably the best hostel to stay in Cairns.

I am so glad I chose to stay at Globetrotter's. Everyone there was extremely friendly and the hostel was well maintained. The wifi works wonderfully, and the free breakfasts really helped tie me over. I felt very safe staying here, and would highly recommend this hostel, even if you are traveling alone (as I was).

Traveling for a while now, we usually avoid backpacker hostels for two reasons: we don't party often and we like peace and quiet... What attracted us to this Globetrotters is that it's not a drinking or party hostel, and no noise is permitted after 10pm. Of course you can chat with friends but being loud is not allowed. It's calm,...

We stayed here for 4 nights and loved the personal atmosphere! Rooms and facilities are very clean and spacious as they just did renovations. The kitchens were well equipped and even had ovens. We loved hanging around the pool meeting everyone; we're sad to leave this happy bunch of people:)

This hostel is fantastic, although it's a quite hostel the people make the place, really friendly staff! Always willing to help, the facilities are good, first time sleeping in a dorm room that doesn't have bunk beds! The communal area is nice with a big sofa and TV and Playstation's, also lots of areas to chill out. The outside area...

We arrived at the hostel at the beginning of April coming from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne. Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the members of staff late at night, they were very hospitable, friendly, and went out of there way to make us feel welcome. The hostel itself is probably the nicest hostel I've stayed in...
