Fun time but wont work there Jul 30, 2011
The Esplanade Hostel is apart of the Nomads Hostel group and im my option the worst one. Ive been to 8 Nomads throughout NZ and OZ and this one by far was the worse.
It was the dirtiest, had several rooms closed do to bed bugs.
Was over priced for what it was. The meals included were valid due to the bar/resturant associated was closed due to failed inspection by the health department secondary to bugs in the kitchen
As for working there, I did work for accommodation and had to work for 5 hrs 6 days a week for a 25 dollar bed in a 8 person room. The math jsut doesnt work. 2 dollars an hr yea no thank you. Did it for a week then left. They had alot of people rotating in the cleaning self secondary ot this, highly illogical. So i would not work or stay there again. A lot of better places in Cairns then here.
The only upside was the people staying there while i was there were friendly and nice and it is right on The Esplanade close ot the water and main pool. Those were the only upsides
