We decided to stay here because a lot of reviews said it was quieter than most hostels. We even got a room with only two twin beds. I would not agree with people on this being quiet. There were signs posted that quiet time started at 10:00pm. Nobody followed this. We had to go tell people to be quiet because... More

We have signs asking guests to be quite after 10pm, plus we offer guests a 24 hour number that they can call too.This number is also displayed on the office door.We also have... More

We loved our stay at Traveller's Oasis! My boyfriend and I stayed in the private double bed room and it was great! Our room came with a fridge and a TV which was very convenient! The bed was actually very comfortable. Bathrooms were very clean. The location is perfect and so quiet we didn't close out windows once. Free wifi... More

Loved this hostel - a real oasis as the name suggests. Really friendly staff who went out their way to make you feel welcome and help with anything at all. Marco and Helen were superstars! In what is a rarity for hostels, guests keep this place clean and tidy, which I think is testament to the overall friendly vibe of... More

My cousin and I stayed for three nights at the Travellers Oasis and I can't rave about it enough. We stayed in the Deluxe Double so we had the full size bed with the opening doors out onto the porch - which featured a hammock (my favorite part) - so we had tons of room and privacy to ourselves. Between... More

We stayed three nights in Travellers Oasis and have nothing but great things to say! It is a retreat from the loud and busy nightlight of the city centre and a great place to meet fellow travellers and relax on a hammock. It is conveniently located near the large shopping mall in Cairns and a short walk from down town.... More

Stayed here five nights with my partner and we really enjoyed it. It is an oasis. Quiet for a hostel and nice and relaxed. It has loads of sun drenched outdoor space and a wee pool if you fancy a dip. Helen is one of the nicest hostel workers Iv ever met. So friendly and helpful booking trip/cars/shuttles. Two cooking...

Thank you very much for your fantastic review. We all love Helen, she has won numerous Tourism Industry Awards for her Customer Service, so glad you had the pleasure of meeting her. Also thanks for pointing out the Hammering Taps, I have installed a Hammer Arrester which the Plumber told me it will fix the noise. I also looked into... More

We chose this hostel mainly on reviews and all were spot on. While we enjoy socializing and meeting new people, we didnt exactly want the party and get-drunk scene. This place is friendly and open enough that you can meet and chat with people without the obnoxious party noise and if you chose to not, there are plenty of places... More

I had such a warm greeting from Helen at reception on a rainy evening in Cairns, and knew I'd made the right choice for my stay. I promptly booked for the following two nights, and Helen did her utmost to offer me an affordable room on my last night even though most had been booked up. Each room is beautifully... More

Travellers Oasis is a lovely hostel, very clean in general compared to other hostels and Helen who works there is so lovely and friendly she is honestly one of the nicest people I have ever made that works at a hostel. Would definitely recommend this hostel. We have had five perfect days in Cairns thank you :)
