Much the same as other reviews, it is very noisy with the bar open to midnight and open to outside guests . When I went to make breakfast, the sign said "open at 0500" however it still wasn't open at 0630 with no one to call to open the locked door. That being said, the check in process was very easy and the rooms have the bathroom inside, rather than a separate public bathroom which I appreciated.
Plus: big, quite stable bunk beds, free breakfast and free bike hire, reading lights and power outlets in bed. The rest doesn’t really meet up to standards to be mentioned in this post. To give an idea: only 3 of 12 stove plates are working, kitchen is pretty dirty. So are the common areas, and ensuite bathrooms. Don’t expect housekeeping to have the bed made upon check in…
First things first-to be completely honest and transparent;the manager did let me cancel my booking for the next two days and refunded the money.They did not refund the money for the night we stayed though-and what a night it was. The next most important thing-this is a hostel-aimed at backpackers;not so much families/couples or anyone that needs to sleep.The bar is open to 11 and the rooms are right next to it-so it was LOUD.After it shut there was still people drinking and carrying on for an hour,then they were slamming doors and yelling out.At 3am then at 5 am then at 6 the banging on doors started-hey are you catching the plane etc. The room was filthy and old.Take a look at the pics.Their photos aren’t what the room looks like. So to sum it up-LOUD AF AND YOU WONT SLEEP. THIS A BACKPACKER PARTY PLACE. CLOSE TO EVERYTHING. DIRTY ROOMS. MANAGER KINDLY LET US CANCEL THE NEXT NIGHTS AND REFUNDED US.…
I stayed at this hostel for 5 days and had the best time. The rooms are super clean with ensuite bathrooms, great showers, and good aircon. I slept in a dorm and every bed had a great blanket, plug in with USB and single light. Great feeling for privacy. Also had a look at their private rooms which looked pretty nice. The bar and pool are great and the staff is really helpful. Can highly recommend Bounce Cairns!
If known that had drunk guests with loud bass music to very very very in the night would not book here. Haven’t slept much since stay, say it on the website. Had friendly staff when first arrived but expect to not sleep here if book.
Came into this hostel 4 weeks ago then just recently became staff. Brilliant atmosphere and good vibe. Fiona and Shelby make you feel welcome with open arms. Good bar and heap drinks. If you want a good stay with the price this is the place to be
Amazing place to stay highly reccomened to anyone passing through. Clean facilities, great bar and social area. Central location right withing walking distance of town and a good mix of Backpackers from all over the world
Requested a quiet room. Was given one next to the laundry which was opened and used all night. Needless to say, it's 5am and haven't slept a wink. Maybe close the laundry by midnight like you do with the bar???
This place can accommodate different types of travelers such as solo travelers, friends, and couples. The bar and pool area are my favorites, really inviting. The staff is really helpful and nice! The only downside would be the size of the kitchen but other than that it's amazing
Bounce has a very good location in the centre of Cairns. Our room was very comfortable and excellent value. We also found the staff to be very friendly. The only negative was the communal kitchen. It was extremely dirty, with food scraps and dirty dishes everywhere. It was so that on the second night of our stay we chose to eat out rather than use it.
