I travelled East coast Queensland in May/June 2014 - this was the final hostel I stayed in and I was so glad to end my travels on a high. The owners are extremely friendly and really care about making a good experience for travellers. They hold a BBQ night once a week which is a great opportunity to meet other... More

I love this place and still comes into mind even after nearly a year from staying here! The best hostel I stayed in in Australia! Really friendly staff and helpful. The place is really relaxed and welcoming and could not recommend it more! Not to be missed!!

This is the BEST hostel you can stay at in Australia. Stayed here for one month... Couldn't bring myself to leave. Feels just like home, incredible staff, very clean! Helen basically planned our entire trip down the coast, and it has been absolutely amazing! Watch out... Your 3 nights at Travellers could easily turn into 3 weeks, but you will... More

I'm writing this at a picnic table with great FREE wifi (which is hard to come by in Australia) and looking at a glistening pool and a cute little common area. The hostel is small, with three different houses. I wish I was here for a Monday night barbecue or Thursday pizza night - good prices for what seems like... More

We stayed a couple of nights while in Cairns, was really smooth and the staff really super helpful. Nice quiet location and facilities really good, pool really nice to escape the heat. Would stay every time I come to Cairns.

This small hostel is, without any doubt, the best hostel I have stayed in during my stay in Australia. Everyone is just so nice and helpfull, especially Helen, Mickey and Marco! The rooms are nice and comfortable, bathrooms are clean and always available. I stayed in the frangipani room, which was just perfect. They offer discounts vouchers for the green... More

We planned on staying at Travellers Oasis for one night, but ended up staying 5. The atmosphere in the hostel was so great and we met some amazing people there. Helen, Mickey and the rest of the staff were always ready to help us with whatever trips we wanted to book. I'd recommend it to everyone! And don't forget to... More

This hostel has a great and quiet atmosphere, the public areas was never overcrowded and the outdoor facilities were good. It has enough showers and toilets, which were clean. The room was big enough and was quite nice. The rooms had free safes and there were fans in the ceiling. There was also air-condition available but it costed 1$/3h. The... More

Booked a single private room for 3 nights in August. On arrival the staff were really nice, check in was really smooth and was given a tour around the hostel. Unfortunately my room for some reason smelt a bit smoky and I am not sure if the person before hand had a cheeky couple of cigs - but anyway I... More

A real oasis. Lovely atmosphere,very friendly and calm. Cute, rustic buildings. Helen, the manager, is excellent... very friendly and helpful, great advice about travel in far north QLD. About 10 min walk to the bay, but it's very close to the train station. Definitely recommended.
