I have stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and would have loved to extend but they were fully booked and that is no wonder.

By far the best hostel I stayed in on the east coast. The staff were so friendly, really accommodating and genuinely want you to get the most out of your stay. Rooms were great and surprisingly comfortable. It only takes 10 minutes to walk into the middle of Cairns & it's nice not to be trying to sleep in the...

This reception was so nice after such a long Coach journey. The hostel has a great feel about it and the communal...

We arrived in Carins in the horribly early hours of the morning so understandably out of check in hours as everyone would be asleep. Despite check in time being 10.30am Mickey had us a room key by 8.15am thanks to an early check out and even came to find us to give us the keys. We had a brilliant stay,...

Stayed just for the night in a single room at Traveller's Oasis. Really lovely staff, well equipped room, relaxed atmosphere and pleasant, clean communal areas. Nice mix of guests at the place too. All in all a really good find.

I stayed here for 4 nights and was thoroughly impressed. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Very helpful and knowledgeable for booking tours and trips. I stayed in a 3 person room which was a nice size. Very clean and cozy little place. Location is very good as well. Close to cairns central and lots of restaurants.
