Hostel 89 Cairns Reviews
Run down place on the waterfront Jan 24, 2009
Normally I don't check reviews of hotels and hostels because I just don't care that much. This time I wish I had - Hostel 89 is a complete dump, don't stay here. The place is old and decrepit, there is an off smell in the rooms, furniture is falling apart and the facilities are shared and horrible. To get to the horrible bathroom you need to take a torch because the lights are all broken, there are insects throughout the kitchen and our shared shower is out of commission. My guess is that this place just relies on pre-bookings (I can't see how they would get repeat customers) and is determined to milk every last cent they can before doing any renevotions. Even that slow death can't be too far away for this crummy hole.
