Any short comings this place may have are totally absolved for the top notch service you get with the staff at Traveler's Oasis. These guys are the best. They treat you like a best friend and they are so helpful! Whether it is asking for tips on local eateries, or helping you plan your entire vacation, they do it all!... More

Travellers Oasis is a friendly little place, with excellent social area - a pool, barbecue, plenty of seating (although the lounge area is pretty small), two kitchens. They take plenty of time to advise and help organise other stuff too, such as tours and campervan hire. I'd definitely stay again.

I stayed at Traveller's Oasis 4 nights over the past week in a single room. I like staying in hostels because people are more social, but I'm at the point in my life where I also like having privacy and not having to worry about packing up my stuff every time I leave a room. This was the perfect balance... More

Worked here for accommodation and fell in love with the place straight away! Met our long lost (metaphorical) aussie family in the amazing staff and even while cleaning loos had such fun in this place. It couldn't be cleaner (you're welcome) and the staff and owners couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. Been to a few hostels in cairns-some very... More

This was such an amazing hostel. I stayed both here and its sister hostel, tropic days. Everyone at oasis was friendly and helpful, especially Helen and helped book all my tours. I will definitely go back!! The only thing was the bunk bed I was in was super squeaky, and I woke everyone up each time I got up, but... More

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in (I've been backpacking through Asia and Australia for 3 months and always stayed at hostels). The layout of the courtyard-like hostel environment makes it very attractive and friendly: it consist of three buildings with in the middle a little pool and two communal areas with picnic tables. The buildings in which... More

The staff (especially Helen) are very friendly. I appreciated that Helen showed me around the hostel when I first arrived. I stayed in a single room, which was fairly small, but decent. My room was located next to the picnic tables and it was difficult to fall asleep with all of the noise at night. The quiet after 10 pm... More

I LOVED this cute and quirkly little hostel and the wonderful people who run it. Best hostel I have ever stayed at. I must have spent several hours with Helen and Mikey while they helped me plan not only my activities in Cairns (they listened to what I wanted and give the best advice), but also my plans for the...

Very friendly and helpful were Marco and Helen. All their advise on tours and activities were right and make our stay in Cairns very special. Location is handy. Everything is walking distance. Close to shops, pubs and restaurants. Rooms are ok.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms (double) and showers were comfy and clean. AC is $1 so make sure u have coins. About 15mins walk from the Esplanade and right next to cairns Central mall so very convenient. Pity we could only stay for a night.
