After another bad hostel experience and finding that most accommodation was booked out, I paid for this room before seeing it, and stuck with it because I didn't want to spend my whole day looking for somewhere to stay. The staff were lovely, friendly guys, who obviously just didn't see the dirt - the room was VERY dirty! When I...

Room is very basic, but clean, clean clean. Pool looks inviting, and the location is great. Not at all quiet, unless you're deaf! Cavernous building amplifies all the noise from amenity areas, added to the constant drone of airconditioning from the building next door.

This place is perfect if you want to escape from the backpackers and meet people from different countries just to talk to! The hostel has a 60's look and is clean! I would always come back to this place! It's right on the esplanade so you have everything right there!

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.

A friend and I stayed here as backpackers and were in a 5 bed dorm although only it was only occupied by 4 when we were there. A very quiet hostel compared to the other party ones. The room was spacious, had a bathroom and air conditioning. We didn't pay for wifi but there is free cairns wifi in the...

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...

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...

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...

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...
