Contrary to the name this accommodation is much like a motel / hostel - mainly suited to backpackers or a one night stop over.
There are communcal facilities such as a kitchen and laundry.
The room was quite spacious and clean. They provided blankets, sheets, pillows and towels. It wasn't the most comfortable bed - but it was quite decent for the price paid. I would say that Koala is much more savoury than most hostels / motels in Cairns CBD.
The good thing about Koala Beach Resort is the central location. The Cairns City Bus Center is at your doorstep, the esplanade is a 5 minute walk. There are plenty of restaurants, souvenir shops and more.
The staff here are wonderful to interact with and were helpful in every way. More
