    I had a very good time at Carravella. There charges are very reasonable. All guests were friendly helped each other. Staff also treated me well. Very good location. I was sorry to leave the Hostel. The fridges in the rooms are very useful.The only drawback is it’s kitchen utensils have to be replaced If I go to Cairns again it is Caravelle Hostel I like to stay. I like to recommend to anybody this place to be a good place to stay.

    Its not bad, but its not great. The rooms are spacious and have AC. The kitchen is kind of hard to use, and not well equipped. The bathroom situation is kinda sketchy too. Theres no common area to hang so people just drink and talk in the halls and stairs. But its good value for the money, and really close to everything. Do recommend for a short stay.

    You get what you pay for. Cheap hostel in good location across the road from Gilligans. Minimal common space besides a small kitchen so if you’re looking for a chilled place to keep your bags and sleep then this is the hostel for you. But if you want to make friends and party and have amazing facilities then go to gilligans :)

    It's a pretty basic hostel, you get what you pay for. Showers and toilets are fine. We didnt use the kitchen but it didn't look great. No lockers in the room, and bunk beds were very low, couldn't comfortably sit on the bottom bunk.

    Best thing is definitely the location and it's pretty cheap too, great for the budget conscious traveller! The place is basic, particularly lacking are lockers in the dorm room. You can use the safe at reception but that's not ideal as you can't access your stuff out of hours. There's no communal area except the kitchen. The staff were helpful enough but they clearly didn't love being there. Laundry wasn't great either, had to manually wring out my clothes before putting in the drier, tedious.

    Broken lights in showers and toilets. Incredibly loud air conditioning. Secure and the room had a fridge, discounted meal at a pub which was actually pretty good.

    Booked 4/18/19 with advised check in at 1am after a late flight. My key was not on the safety box as instructed via email. I ended up dragging my luggage and walking around the city trying to find a room at 2am, with thoughts that my liveaboard diving trip starts at 8am. Horrible experience diving without proper sleep from a screwed up hostel booking. Turned out the hostel did not assign a room for me because my credit card that I lost a week prior in New Zealand was declined.
