    Travellers Oasis is definitely one of my favourite hostels in Australia. Really nice and helpful people at the reception desk (they will get you great advice and discounts on most tours). The dorms and common areas are very clean. Every bed had it's own safe (you don't need to bring your own lock), which was really nice. The monday night... More

    We can keep this review very short. Travellers Oasis is AMAZING! Helen is the best! She has lots of good tips and is always happy to help. The room and facilities where very clean and comfortable. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    This was my first stop in my travelling through Australia. Naturally, I was a bit nervous to be travelling alone, but I immediately felt extremely welcomed by Helen and Mick. Gave me a tour right away of all the facilities and told me make myself at home. And that is exactly what Travellers Oasis is, a home away from home.... More

    We arrived in April to stay for two weeks, and ended up staying nearly two months as we were offered some work. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Rooms are lovely and clean, and free wifi that actually works. Helen and the staff are amazing, missing them already!

    Stayed for one night. Staff were very welcoming and showed us to out room. Booked a double room with a balcony and it was amazing. Kitchen area was clean and people were friendly. Wifi was a bit hit and miss but apart from that a very good place to stay. Recommend it to anyone staying in cairns

    Such a great place, The staff and owners are really awesome and so accommodating. They bent over backwards to help us stay there when they we're fully booked and gave us a great price. It's not a party place but the vibe is awesome, with so many cheerful people around you can't help but make travel friends. Probably is one... More

    Such a great hostel, with the friendliest service in Cairns! The layout of the hostel is gorgeous, and the dining facilities/pool area make it ideal to meet other travellers. Hostel is situated in a good location, approximately a 10-15 minute walk to the Cairns lagoon, and right opposite a large shopping centre which is really handy. The rooms were basic... More

    A nice backpackers but it's on a main road which has trucks travelling on it all night. Had a small clean simple room and the bathroom was clean. There is pleasant public space to hang out in and a good kitchen.
