Straight on the first day the staff remembers your name. The staff is friendly and very helpful. They take all the time to help you plan your holiday and trips. The rooms are great as well, almost no bunkbeds, enough powerplugs for all your devices and very clean. The pool is small, but very nice to cool off. Outside there... More

I stayed here for a couple nights in Cairns this past weekend, and I had a wonderful time! As a solo traveller, it was nice to meet other people, and the staff was so helpful and friendly! They arraigned for me when I arrived since I came into Cairns late at night, which gave me a great first impression! Overall,... More

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

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
