Budget / backpackers accommodation

Cairns has a huge choice in backpackers hostels and they are all over town. Some of the more homely and quiet hostels are found on the inland side of the railway station / Cairns Central shopping centre.
In the dorms of hostels closest to the night clubs it might be harder to get a good night sleep as by the time the last one in the dorm comes home from the nightclub the first one is getting up for their reef trip again.
