What could i, what should i say to this hostel?! i've been there for more then two month! normaly my plan was to leave cairns as soon as possible but the wonderfull ambient, the cool rules and the kind to stay there was like an magnet, so I was there for a long time. Thanks Pete for everything. If I have one more time the possibility to stay in cairns for a while then defenitly in rosie's again. The owners are fucking italian asholes but pete the manager and his crew are totaly cool and relaxed. Thanks for all! Christoph

I totaly disagree with the previous reviews the manager is one of the rudist people i have encountered so far on this trip. refused 2 give my key deposit back becoz i told him me and my friend wanted to cancel the reservation for the week. Patronising and codisending. Was also unfriendly on checking in. i suposse you get what you pay 4.on second thoughts they should pay you to stay there.

Rosie's was quality, checked in for 2 days stayed for 3 weeks.. Pete who runs the place through the week is a top bloke and as understanding of the backpackers needs as anyone.. Parties, BarBs, TURBO ROUND, Boat Races and meeting loads of new people made the whole Rosie's Experience complete... It's not fancy, the kitchen is small, the tv is crap but if you want the niceties and the luxury go check into a hotel. Hi to the Rosie's army, see you all in Brisbane.. You are also nominated for 4 substantial gulps.. skull it.

Stayed there three weeks while my boyfriend worked there as the bus driver. We alternated between dorms and doubles. The dorms are cramped and the doubles are not private. But this hostel is really friendly. Its got personality. Plus free dinner at the Woolshed is not half bad! The manager Pete is super friendly too. Stay there for a good time!

This was probably the best, most enjoyable hostel I've ever stayed in. The owners/staff are extremely friendly and helpful which contributes to a good atmosphere among the guests. The rooms are comfortable and clean and I also thought the rates were very affordable. I'd love to go back.
