Thanks for everything

+ “来自香港的服务员太棒了,感谢为我们所做的一切!有机会还会入住的。” - 没有 + " Great receptionist from Hong Kong , thanks for all your help. We may stay with you again. - Nothing negative Review by Qingguo (13-May-2016)

Relaxed hostel

Relaxed hostel a little bit away from the madness but still close enough to be near the action. Showing its age a little but reasonably clean and good atmosphere Review by Ben (10-May-2016)

Gratis Transfer vom Flughafen und Prozente bei touren

+ “Die Zimmer waren sehr sauber und nicht allzu viele Leute in einem Raum, toll war auch, dass es einen Pool gab. Der gratis Transfer vom Flughafen und Prozente bei touren waren auch toll.” - Dass im Preis kein Früstück inkludiert war ist bei Annehmlichkeiten wie 4 Personen im Zimmer und Pool etc ok aber Wlan hätte man schon kostenfrei in allen Bereichen zur Verfügung stellen können. Nur im Aufenthaltsbereich und selbst da nur bis 22.30 ist schon ein bißchen knausrig, auch wenn unbeschränktes Wlan günstig zukaufbar war. Review by Travelling Girl (09-May-2016)

doskonała lokalizacja

“Szybka realizacja próśb o pomoc,rzetelna i wyczerpująca informacja, doskonała lokalizacja” Review by Karol (04-May-2016)

Really nice vibe in the hostel

“Very clean, comfortable and great staff. Really nice vibe in the hostel although after 11pm it gets quiet. If you're working in cairns this is perfect but if you want to have a few drinks after 11, you'll need to keep it down. Aside from that, highly recommend staying here. Location is perfect. Nice pool and cooking facilities too.” Review by Rob (04-May-2016)

When Italians meet Cairns... ”

Amazing hostel, near to the Lagoon and to the Centre. RECEPTIONISTS are very friendly and available for all your problems, Emilia was semplicemente FANTASTICA! If i will come back to Cairns, I already know where i can go ;) Ciao belli grazie di tutto! Review by Raffaele (03-May-2016)

Great location with access to all the major spots!

+ “Very kind and helpful staff, swimming pool and facilities at the premises. Very close to any interesting location in Cairns City. Emilia and Andre were absolutely kind and helpful, thanks guys!” Review by Javier (02-May-2016)

Overall best place i have stayed

I stayed 4 days in April 2016, thoroughly enjoyed it. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere, quiet at night for a good sleep, even during the day rooms quiet. Great deep pool to relax, can even do laps, pool surrounds nice. Staff very helpful and friendly, gave great advice about local spots , travel and booked tickets for tours. Airport shuttle came to door. Overall best place i have stayed. Rob Review by ROB (29-Apr-2016)


“地理位置好 在city里 离terminal步行距离 性价比高 提供了和世界各地的朋友交流结识的机会” Review by Kaihao (28-Apr-2016)

Great value for money, friendly staff, clean and tidy

+ “Recommended- Friendly staff, air conditioned room, comfortable bed, decent pool to cool off in” - If walking, takes a few minutes to get to central city Review by Christopher (28-Apr-2016)

“Affordable, clean and well organised place, great location.”

Reasonable price, great location and very well organised place to stay in Cairns. Quite a lot of rooms, two kitchens, lots of bathrooms, common area with pool. Helpful staff, easy to find trips and adventures through their website. Good food and drinks deals. Recommended.

Review by Thelothenoticer (19-Jan-2016)

Very comfortable stay


Me and my husband stayed at caravella for 3 nights. Rooms are clean and comfortable to stay. They have a common kitchen and shower and toilet. Which are also kept clean .Staff is polite and helpful. I enjoyed my stay. Will definitely recommend.
