first of all, I've have to say that this was my first backpackers experience, since a long time, considering that I've passed 41. I opted for a backpackers because I was in Australia on a business trip, but I was looking for a budget accommodation in Cairns for the weekend (which was not refunded by my company). Well, Caravella turned out to be a great choice! The place is clean, well organized, and cheap. I chose a motel-like solution, i.e., a room with two beds and private bathroom, which came for approximately 70 AUD (about 50 euros) per night, through booking.com. The room was clean, large, and comfortable, though the street noise was slightly annoying. Nothing fancy, of course, but just fine. No air conditioning, but a couple of (quite old and noisy) ceiling fans. Linens and towels included in the price. I was feared of a noisy and chaotic place with bunch of youngest shouting and making noise till late night... well, nothing of this kind! The place was quite and hosts are requested to not dwell in the public area of the hostel after 11:00 pm. Free airport shuttle-bus, plus a ticket for a super cheap dinner (6.5 AUD for dinner and drink in a close-by pub), plus free wifi in the public area, plus free swimming pool, plus free luggage storage made the deal extremely convenient!
