Welcome to the Mad House!!!

Bootstrap Slider

Hello my freaky darlings! Welcome to Asylum Cairns... A small family-operated hostel minutes away from the heart of the city of Cairns, we believe that you don't have to spend too much money to have a good time. Well known (and sometimes notorious) for its atmosphere, the crew here at Asylum offer award-winning service within a party oriented atmosphere. Sing a long, laugh and chill out with the reception staff's antics during the day and take advantage of our "No Curfew" policy and party through the night. No Bar means we have no problems at all with you bringing your own drinks to the party which we definitely recommend! We even have a MASSIVE fridge for everyone to keep their..."supplies" for the night in. Save your money, have more musical control, and bond more with your fellow travellers in our spacious outdoor garden!

Every Thursday, join us on the ultimate night of insanity, madness, and political incorrectness as we tear up the Cairns nightclubs with the infamous Pants Down Party. Some things are just too good to mention, but we are allowed to tell you that dinner, free internet, and your very own personally designed Asylum Inmate tank top is included among other things! Help our charity efforts by mooning the camera! For every butt shown on photos and video, we donate $1 to Paws & Recover - an Australian charity that takes care of pets whose owners have passed away or been incarcerated!

Don't tell your mother you're staying here!
