Really enjoyed our stay here, met some fun and relaxed people. The girls behind front desk were always helpful and friendly, we stayed in a room overlooking the pool/seating area that didn't have any air con or fans but it was cheaper and the windows were always open, it was pretty loud at night when people are outside but nothing...

Stayed as a couple. Perfect location, staff at the reception super friendly and helpful. Rooms simple but nice. Cannot tell anything about housekeeping-nobody cleaned our room (stayed 4 nights). Would come back because of the price, location, atmosphere and professionalism of reception!

Myself and my partner stayed here in a double room with shared bathroom. The staff were friendly and helpful with questions we had. The bathroom facilities were good and clean. The pool is big and clean. Plenty of deck chairs to soak in the sun. The wifi is restricted to the common area and can be extremely slow when other... More

It was a pleasure to stay here in a private double. Everything you need, clean, cheerful and friendly place. Great location right on the waterfront a short walk to the town. Great cooking facilities if that floats our boat. The private double was well Kate's out with towels, handy personal fridge and soap :-)

A hostel that really helps their guest. I stayed in a 6 bed room and they were clean and nice. The pool area and yard was really nice to hang. It is close to everything and the bars and restaurants are just out the door.

Caravella was a nice place to stay. Great rooms, with a fridge. Swimming pool. Good location, about a 15 minute walk into the centre. It's clean. The wifi is slow and restricted within the common area, which I did find quite annoying. The kitchen was equipt but had no oven. We chose just to eat breakfast there. The bed was... More

Stayed in a private double room. That one had a fridge, a place to hang and put away clothes, a night stand and air conditioning. Bathrooms very clean, showers a bit small, but very good. Kitchen could be better equipped. Nice and clean pool area. Friendly staff. Vouchers for mealternatives deals at a pub in town. Would return.

Our favourite hostel in Australia so far and the cheapest. Quiet at night, rooms spacious and having fridges in rooms is a lot easier than piling food on top of each other in the big communal fridges. Staff are lovely. Definitely stay here again.

I stayed here with a friend for 9 nights. At first we stayed in a private twin room as we had a long flight to Australia and wanted to relax and have a good sleep. The room was big, had a fridge with plenty of room and was clean. We later moved into a 6 bed female dorm which was... More
