First hostel we had ever stayed in Australia, we stayed in a private double room for 1 week which included a tv and a fridge in our room! Very friendly reception staff helped us a lot and were very welcoming when we arrived. The only critiqe we would have is that the bathrooms could do with a revamp, better shower...

I've stayed at a lot of hostels in Australia and this was by far my favorite! It's a couple of blocks away from the busyness of the city, but is still close walking distance to everything. The staff are friendly and incredibly helpful! The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, and the bathrooms are well kept. There are lock...

Very friendly staff upon arrival, my bus was late and reception closed but Helen still took time to show me my room and give me a quick induction. The staff call everyone by first name and could not be more helpful. I stayed in the double room and the facilities were good enough to rival most hotels, never mind backpackers...

Great location, residing just behind Cairns central shopping centre and a short walk from the lagoon and esplanade. We booked for five nights however, extended our stay to 10 because we liked the hostel so much. The staff are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble (they are happy to lend beach towels and store luggage when doing over...

Travellers Oasis was very welcoming and check in was a breeze. The guy who checked us in gave a nice introduction to the city. He also gave us a nice selection of reef cruises to choose from when we asked of those. Property was quite nice and had a good pool to dip in. There weren't many bathrooms and showers,...

Having not stayed in a hostel for many years, I was nicely surprised by Travellers Oasis. Hostel was located on a relatively quiet side street but within walking distance to local supermarket, bars, esplanade and great gelato shops! Helen was a source of inform ratio and she goes above and beyond in making your stay in cairns a good one!...

Travelers' Oasis is a fantastically friendly hostel. The staff here go out of their way to make you feel at home and ensure you make the most out of your time in Cairns (and the rest of Oz!). We had such helpful advice from Helen, Marco and Micky - from day trips to the outer reef, and sailing tours around...

This Hostel is incredible. I have stayed in a few hostels and none of them have even came close to this one. Everyone is super friendly and the vibe is very welcoming. I would recommend this hostel for everyone. The staff is extremely friendly and everything is very well kept. They also know everything about the area and will give...

These two know how to run a hostel. As soon as I saw it I felt like I was home. I was welcomed by friendly faces with a plethora of information about the areas activities, restaurants, and bars. I had a single room at a very affordable price, 45 dollars. It had a bed, fridge, fan, and lost of hooks...

Any short comings this place may have are totally absolved for the top notch service you get with the staff at Traveler's Oasis. These guys are the best. They treat you like a best friend and they are so helpful! Whether it is asking for tips on local eateries, or helping you plan your entire vacation, they do it all!...
