A bit far away from the centre, but definitely one of the best I stayed in! Quiet and no party! Very clean facilities and no bunk beds! I enjoyed a very nice and yummy free Christmas Breakfast and everyone was so friendly! Thanks a lot!

Very nice location. Good staff. Clean and tidy rooms. Ideal for a short stay and great for backpackers looking for a place to chill and crash at Cairns. Easy on your pocket. Happy with my choice. Easy access on foot to most happening places. Strongly recommended.

I stayed at this hostel for five nights and the end of January, in a six bed dorm for one night and a four bed for the rest. The staff are super friendly, and give honest advice and recommendations about things to do in and around Cairns. They could not do enough for me during my stay. The hostel itself... More

This is what all hostels should be like. Stayed here for 3 nights, and as soon as I checked in I felt like I was at home. Staff and people were great, and if I'm back in Cairns wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Really liked this hostel! Had a homely feel, nice facilities, and was right next to cairns central. Only downside was the air con! I understand the rooms are cheap and I wouldn't mind paying it's just annoying you can only put a dollar in at a time for 3 hours - so if we went out all day the room... More

We were staying at Travellers oasis for 4 days. I really enjoyed it! Everything was really clean, pool was nice, so was the eating area outside. Staff was really friendly and willing to help us in any time.. Location is not so perfect but they offer free ride to city center multipul times a day. I really recommend this hostel.

I've stayed in various hostels in Australia and this one was easily the best all-rounder. Some others might have a better location, or bigger rooms, or sometime, but no other hostel matched up to Travellers Oasis in terms of ticking ALL the boxes: * Great staff who set a great vibe and will help sort out anything especially which are...

I could not recommend this hostel enough. I stayed for a couple of days in Nov/Dec 2015 and did not want to leave. I had no idea hostels could be like this place. Yes a beetle the size of my fist fell out of a palm tree and nearly knocked me out in the pool, but that's Australia. I've never... More

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was lovely and a good price, they do get booked up quick and you can't tend to just turn up and get a room as we tried this 2 weeks later and they were full! But we went to their sister hotel topic days but that is a bit more of a... More
