Maybe the best hostel ever!

+ “Loved everything here! Super helpful and friendly staff, clean, quiet place just 10 minutes walking distance from all restaurants, shops and the lagoon! Would love to go back!” - Nothing negative about this place! Review by Minna (05-Sep-2016)

Tolle Stimmung mit vielen backpackern!

+ “Schöner Aufenthalsbereich, wo man viele Leute kennenlernt.” Review by Johanna (02-Sep-2016)

Highly recommend

Stayed here with my sister in a private room. Jodie on the reception desk was an absolute angel. So friendly and helpful and kindly upgraded us!! She really made the difference to the last night we spent in Australia. Super clean hotel, very quiet, large kitchen pool and communal areas.. Didn't feel like a backpackers at all!!

Angenehmer Aufenthalt im Caravella Hostel

+ “Das Hostel ist sehr gut gelegen, direkt am Strand und nur ein paar Minuten von der Stadt entfernt. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Eine große Küche steht den Gästen zur Verfügung, die mit allen Geräten gut ausgestattet ist. Der Gemeinschaftsbereich befindet sich draußen, ist aber überdacht, wo sehr angenehm ist. Zur Abkühlung kann man in den Pool springen, der zum Hostel gehört. Die Zimmer sind sauber und man hat alles, was man braucht.”

- Kein kostenloses WLAN auf den Zimmern und WLAN nur im Gemeinschaftsbereich.

“Really nice hostel”

Really warm welcome from Jodie at reception, such a nice girl and was so so friendly. She was so helpful and really went the extra mile for us! Really cool hostel, relaxed quiet but not far from centre of town and bars and clubs.. Great location on the esplanade! Review by David (12-Aug-2016)

Nette Zusatzleistungen

+ “Nette Zusatzleistung, mit denen man gar nicht rechnet: kostenloses Shuttle vom Flughafen, Prozente in örtlichen Restaurants”

- Kühlschrank und Klimaanlage im Zimmer waren etwas laut.

Good Times!

+ “Very nice hostel all the facilities and services you need to have independent living with a good communal vibe. Staff are great and super helpful. The tours on offer are very reasonable thank you Caravella for a great time!” Review by Wes (12-Jul-2016)

Would stay again!

“Good location. I was in private room which was basic. Big kitchen. Stay was very good. Would stay again!” Review by Sylvia (28-Jun-2016)

Great place and small budget !”

Spent 3 nights in a double room. Weren't there during the day but came back to eat and sleep. Was very comfortable and a really cool place where people are talking to each other. No noise after 23:00, so very nice to sleep after a whole day of snorkelling ! I highly recommend this backpacker ! Review by Claire (15-Jun-2016)

Pleasant place to stay ; good value

+ “The girl at the front desk (unfortunately I don't remember her name but she is a brunette with a huge smile) was so inviting and enthusiastic. She upgraded my friends and I to a bit of a nicer room and was just an absolute doll. She was the friendliest staff member out of all the hostels I've been to in Australia. Definitely book your tours with Caravella because you get a discount with most of them. The hostel is clean and everything about it felt very convenient. This hostel is good to meet people but also enables a better sleep than somewhere like Gilligans. Pleasant stay overall.” - The bunk beds are quite low so if you are on the bottom bunk you cannot sit up in bed, but that's not the end of the world. Review by Kathleen (13-Jun-2016)

Easy walk to Esplanade

+ “Quiet, easy walk to Esplanade, city and ferry terminus” Review by Michel (30-May-2016)

Alles Ok

+ “Wir hatten ein Doppelzimmer .Das Zimmer war groß und sauber.Mitarbeiter sehr nett und hilfsbereit.Super Lage.Nur paar Schritte zum Strand.Große Supermärkte in ca. 15min zu fuss erreichbar.” - Internet nur im öffentlichen Bereich.Im Zimmer kostet extra. Review by Kasimierz (24-May-2016)

I enjoyed my stay

+ “The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. It was close to the sea and within walking distance to local restaurants. The staff were extremely helpful. Excellent food at the restaurant next door, and quite reasonable.” - Inadequate lighting due to one not light not working but otherwise all was good Review by Elizabeth (17-May-2016)
