Very nice building, traditional hostel, right at the seafront

Really nice spot to stay. Like home, nice and clean. right when we arrived the property owner was really helpful, answered every single question we had. I liked the location, restful and out of the hustle and bustle of town, but nonetheless close enough to walk to everything we needed. Easily booked tour from the hotel, employees was great, all smiles, very approachable. I was doing some budget travelling with my mom and she even loved the place. the cooking area facilities were kept clean and felt welcoming. Also they had no cost meals every single night from a local pub. Overall enjoyable experience, just what we were looking for. Definitly reccomend the spot to laidback travellers

10 minutes walk from the center of town, esplanade and reef ferryboat terminal. The employees were exceptionally freindly and helpful.

I loved how warm and friendly the staff and fellow backpackers were. It was a gorgeous experience.

This was a motel attached to Carvella backpackers. Rooms were large and had a refrigerator and storage unit. We also had no cost unlimited air conditioning. You had a bathroom per level which was cleaned daily. You used the kitchen and pool at Carvellas which was just next door. Very impressed for the price. Noiseless and chilled :).

Perfect location, close to the city but still situated in a silent place. Friendly staff and great facilities!

Caravellas Right after landing in Cairns we called the hostel to arrange our no cost pick as instructed by email the day before. We were told which bus bay to go to along with the name of the company and we were collected inside 10 minutes. It&'s a 10 minute drive to Caravellas. We received a warm welcome from reception, lots of local area info and meal vouchers for a local pub. As we were shown to our room I saw a sign saying the kitchen was closed for cleaning and a member of staff mopping the floor. I felt immediately reassured this hostel would be nicer than some others we have stayed in! Our room was close to the kitchen and pool but there was an 11pm curfew so we weren&'t worried about noise. Our room was nice and clean with a table and chairs, huge fridge and an air con unit. There are 2 kitchens, both huge and well equipped and there are no public fridges so your food is safe inside your room. There were a few Japanese families staying at the hostel and they cooked every single night. One evening a group of teenagers left the kitchen in a mess but we had already cooked so it didn&'t bother us. There are 3 washing machines and 2 driers and a large area for hanging clothes. We used the washing area with no problems. The reception staff were often smiling and helpful. They booked a last minute tour to the rainforest for us (well worth doing in case you have a spare day) and organised an airport shuttle for us. Nothing was too much troubled and they had countless patience with some frustrating guests! This hostel is a 10 min walk to town but the walk is along the seafront and there are plenty of shops and restaurants to look at. It didn&'t bother us at all. We loved staying at Caravellas and will be back if we are in Cairns again.

This property offered the most value compared to all of the other hostels that I had researched. I also liked that the property was situated close enough to the primary strip and still maintained to keep noise levels down at night.
