For people who like to chill and who like quality. Not a party atmosphere. Relaxed vibe, clean, organized. I mean after 28 years, it's not surprising they've perfected the hostel environment and operation.

Date of stay: November 2018
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

I was in a 7 bed share for about 9 days and everything was great! Amenities were kept very clean i.e. showers bathrooms and kitchens. Always some space in the fridge and with 3 kitchens there was never a competition for cooking. Although there were plenty of people around to mingle with always, the place has a designated quiet time of 10pm so it was always easy to sleep if I wanted to or just a quick walk to plenty of bars and clubs. Directly across the street from Cairns Central but not on the noisiest roads in town it feels like a secret hideaway in the middle of town. Overall very cool and worth a visit if you are passing through. You'll be missing out if you pass this one up trust me!

Room tip: Theres no wrong answer here

I would definitely recommend staying at the Dreamtime. This was my first time staying at a hostel and I was so impressed by how pleasant everything was. Very friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms and bathrooms, convenient location close to train station and shops, lots of other friendly travellers to meet and talk to. I also loved being hooked up with lots of cheap rainforest and reef tour deals. My advice - look for Gabe, she'll look after you. I'm already looking forward to my next trip to Cairns so I can stay here again :)

Room tip: I preferred booking a private room, but all rooms are close to bathrooms and kitchen.

I'm so glad I booked and stayed at Dreamtime. From the moment I booked until I checked out the staff were friendly, informative and went above and beyond on service. I stayed in a deluxe room which was perfect, a double bed, fridge and basin. With the shower and toilet opposite my room it couldn't get any better. The location is ideal for everything. I booked my trips through them which took the pain away from having to do it - thanks Dreamtime for a wonderful stay

Dreamtime Travellers Rest is a great hostel. I stayed in a 3 bed dorm ( no bunks ! ) for 8 nights and now I am staying in a single private room. Hostel is very close to a massive shopping centre.It is a $1 coin for 3 hours of air conditioner, and worth every cent ! Staff are all very friendly and hard workers. I was made to feel very welcome from the time I stepped in the door. I am planning to come back to cairns in February 2019 and this is what I call a great hostel.
