Caravelllas is a lovely place to stay. Staff made our stay very enjoyable and we booked an extra 3 nights! The location is about 10 minutes walk from the heart of cairns but right on the promenade which is ideal and very beautiful.


Staff very welcoming and friendly. All the team answered all our questions and helped us about our stay in Cairns. We really enjoyed our week in this backpacker!

Great hostel to stay while spending time in Cairns. Good and relaxed atmosphere where you can drink your own alcohol in the outside area. Has everything you need and the staff are very helpfull and friendly. Would recommend this hostel to everyone who wants good value for money and stay close to the beach.


Pretty good location right near the water and not too far from the night market! In a quieter part of town if you're doing lots of early tours and need rest. Great kitchen and rooms were nice.
