Stayed in a premium double room (shared bathroom) for 2 nights. The noise from the street all night was terrible. Made it impossible to sleep even with earplugs in. The doors slam inside as well, which doesn't help. They need to seriously invest in sound insulation.
Don't stay here if you actually want to sleep at night.
Otherwise it was a good location and clean.
Good fast wifi.

Myself and my two kids stayed at Freedom in July 22.
The private room was perfect, as was the kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The phone app key system worked well (assuming you have a working mobile)
The location was fantastic, just 2mins from the public pool and beach front.

I stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The room was clean and simple, with a fan. Absolutely no natural light, but you can't have everything and the room was very decent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Good budget accommodation.
The app key system is a bit odd (you download a app which bluetooths to the locks to open doors) and not great if your phone doesn't have a good battery life.

The hostel is perfectly placed best location. Easy to get everywhere in cairns and downstairs is woolies. I had a premium private room. It was very good value.
However the hostel was getting busier with more visitors and and in my view it could now do with a deep clean in the common areas, stairs, kitchen, and all bathrooms. The floors across the hostel need a good scrub and deep clean. The cushions on the balcony for the lounge need replacing.
Also the keys on fluffy key rings for the private bathrooms are extremely unhygienic and should be swapped out for a wipeable key ring or better still the e key operated by phone like the rooms.
The Netflix did not work in the room I had, the back of the remote control was missing and the aircon temp could not be controlled. There is new management so perhaps a detailed audit will be undertaken with these small things being attended to.

Location is perfect, 5 min walk from the water and a stone’s throw from cafes and restaurants. The staff are friendly and the rooms are recently renovated. One of the better hostels I have stayed in !!
