“A home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

My girlfriend and I spent months living in various hostels in Cairns. When we found Cairns sharehouse we were shocked to discover such great accommodation at such a low price. We spent our last 5 weeks in Cairns staying with Cairns Sharehouse but just wish we found them sooner. The staff are extremely nice and helpful and the sharehouses on offer are very clean, spacious and comfortable. They also seem to attract a much nicer, mature and considerate clientele to what we found living in hostels in the area. For a couple travelling together, the sharehouse was cheaper than the previous hostel we were staying at. I highly recommend Cairns Sharehouse.

Room Tip: 80 Martyn Street & 67 Minnie Street are excellent sharehouses.

Cairns Sharehouse is a great way to sty if you're staying for more than a month in Cairns. I've stayed with them several times over the years. The prices are reasonable, especially if you're traveling with a friend. The sharehouse does NOT allow parties on site, so it's fairly quiet at the houses. The sharehouse arranges parties for the guests every other month. There are several properties so you can choose what level of comfort and rate is good for you

This is a brilliant cross between a hostel and a flat. It is cheap and you get to meet fellow travellers who are all in the same boat as you. We met brilliant people to go out with and have a laugh with. Saying that it was almost always quiet by 10.30 so you weren`t kept up all night like you would be in a hostel. You have also the benefit of the kitchen and bathrooms being professionally cleaned for you. The share houses are all within a short wo\alk from Cairns Central and also the high street and most importantly all of the pubs and clubs!!! Stay here and it will be the best decision you make! It was for us!

Room Tip: We left at the start of December, it was getting a bit too hoit not to have air con. I would advice...
