Clean, friendly with a max of 3 people in each room. Couldn't fault for the price. Close to the shops incase you run out of anything with discounts available for some local restaurants. Pool could have been bigger but not many people around in the day

I've stayed in hostels all over the world, and Traveler's Oasis has to be my favorite. The staff is the mostly helpful I've ever encountered. From my first email to saying goodbye, they were phenomenal. They booked all the tours I asked for and had our vouchers ready the moment we arrived. The people who stay here are rad and...

If your looking for a nice and quiet place to stay in Cairns with a great location then this place is great! My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and really enjoyed ourselves! The central railway station is literally 2 minutes away; where you are able to catch the major transports to most exertions. Also provide free early...

Stayed at Travellers Oasis for a week in September and had an awesome time. The staff were amazing and the whole place had such a friendly vibe, I got a great nights sleep every night and would 100% recommend to anyone staying in Cairns. The hostel was pretty much full for my whole stay but it never seemed too busy...

Overall good experience there, but there were some definite annoyances. Let's start with the positive: -Comfortable bed. -Individual, proper safe for every guest. -Knowledgeable staff. They can inform you about all the activities in Cairns, in fact I think at least half of their job is that of a travel agent. -Good kitchen and storage space for your food. -Cool...

Thank you for staying with us. We are pleased you enjoyed the free WIFI, especially in your room. We have many signs around the hostel regarding the BBQ and put more leaflets out on a Sunday night, plus we have in on everyone's check in maps and tell them about the BBQ then too. We are sad you missed it...

Travellers Oasis is definitely the best hostel I've stayed in. Very friendly staff that knows you by name instead of being treated as "another guest". Everything is very clean and feels like home. The location is great too, just a minor walk and you're in the centre of Cairns. The people of Travellers Oasis are helpful as well and can...

We are currently staying at travellers oasis in one of the double rooms. Really lovely staff/vibe/people. Really chilled out and not too crazy. The hostel runs some nights so you can meet the other travellers which is nice. About 10 minute walk from esplanade but convenient for food shopping. Staff helped us book tours and had so much knowledge about...

Helen was so welcoming when we arrived - won't forget her warmth in a hurry! We had a twin room and it was spring so the fan was cool enough. TV was a nice touch, as is the mini fridge. I really loved relaxing in the hammocks (except when I fell out trying to get in) and the pool looked...

I'm a bit older than the typical hostel crowd, but was so glad I stayed here. The staff is truly wonderful. They had great recommendations for day trips and were always friendly even when juggling questions from multiple people at once. The rooms are generally comfortable and there is a lot of good communal outdoor space at the hostel. It...
