I stayed at Caravella on either end of a live-aboard diving trip. The first three nights I was in a 4-bed female dorm (room 19). It was pretty close to the kitchens and outdoor area and so was fairly noisy, but tidy and had its own bathroom. The curfew is posted as 11:00 pm but they don't enforce it too strictly until around 11:30. On the back end, I was up in room 36, which was a 4 bed again but didn't have a private bathroom. However, it was much quieter and I would happily stay again in that room.
The front desk staff is really helpful and friendly, and the airport pickup is free on the way in (though $12 on the way out).
The location is maybe a 5 minute walk off the main start of the Esplanade, and they have a deal with a local bar where you can get dinner & a half-pint for just $6.50 every night!
