We originally checked into a 4 person dorm room. However the room was pretty average. Decided to upgrade to a private room. The manager was happy to oblige, and everyone was happy. Throughout the 5 days we stayed there, the reception staff were very helpful and patient with our bookings and inquiries. For cheap accommodation, not bad.

The room was spacious, had a bathroom and air conditioning. We didn't pay for wifi but there is free cairns wifi in the... More

Took the 4 bed dorm for my friends and I. It was comfortable, clean and very cheap! It has a/c and ensuite bathroom. But you have to share the laundry and kitchen. Perfect for those who are seeking a private ensuite room without paying a lot. The staff are very friendly. Where do I even start. Thank you especially to... More

We stayed here for two nights and the best thing about the Bellview is the price and location. On the Esplanade so you can walk to the bars/restaurants and also to the port for trips to the GReat Barrier Reef. Our room was very basic but functional but we found the shared bathrooms not to be very clean. Also, there... More

I stayed in a private a/c room for 4 nights and it was perfect for what I needed. The room was spacious with a double/queen and a twin bed, a full bath (no tub), closet, TV, mini-fridge and chair. There was a fan and a/c. Honestly the room was nothing special and is fairly dated and the a/c was a... More

Basic hotel on the esplanade in Cairns. It is very close to shops and restaurants. The front desk are very helpful and can organise any attraction you wish to visit and usually get you a bit of a discount. Our room ("1") looked out onto the street but there was very little noise intrusion and it was interesting to check... More

I was staying just 3 nights in Cairns before heading down to the Whitsundays and when I was looking to book a room there was so much choice. The reviews for the Bellview seemed good and so I decided to book. Booking was made super easy when I emailed the hostel as I couldn't find a private room on any... More

In the middle of everything, just next door to the night market. They have a kitchen and a swimming pool. Staff are very friendly and helpful. You can book activities through them and they can give you good advice. They have a wide range of rooms, for all budgets.
