We loved our stay at travellers oasis, the staff was very friendly and welcoming, more than helpful with all our questions. The whole place is very cozy and you feel at home from the first minute, private double and dorm room were both very clean, towels were provided, just lovely! Would always stay there again!

What a beautiful little oasis! Just wish we could have stayed here longer. A totally relaxed, homely, friendly hostel. The staff were so helpful and made you feel like they really cared and the hostel was so chilled and relaxing. The hostel itself is a little walk from the centre (around 15-20 minutes) but it is an easy stroll and... More

Maybe it's not Gilligan's maybe it has not the offers that a big conglomerate backpackers hotel can offer you BUT you have the nicest persons helping you there always with a smile not pretending, not on stress and always patient with you. Keep the good work people and I hope this concept always be rewarded.

I stayed here for a few nights before and after my trip to the Great Barrier Reef. The staff here were so friendly and try to learn the name of everyone staying at the hostel! I was checked in by Mikey, who was really friendly, have me a tour of the hostel, rather than just telling me where I could... More

My 5-day trip to Cairns was the very first trip I've travelled on my own, and I am glad I stayed at Travellers Oasis for ultimate peace of mind. The staff helped me to make the most of my few days here, gave me a great, brief description of popular areas to see, and made sure I could ask for... More

I had a brilliant 5 night stay at the Travellers Oasis. I had a private single room, which had all the modcons I needed as well as air con if I chose to pay $1 for 3 hours. I found staff to be incredibly friendly, helpful and knowledgable of the local area. Great location for walking into town, going on... More

Travellers Oasis is a nice place to stay. It is very safe and the staff are very friendly and hospitable. Helen was super friendly and sweet. I felt very welcome. They have two good sized kitchens, lots of picnic tables and hammocks and common areas to socialize. It's about a 15 minute walk to the Esplanade but right across the... More

If you are looking for an affordable place to stay in Cairns as a single person or group of friends, I recommend Travellers' Oasis. There are safes in every room, locking doors, and attentive staff to ensure safety. Cairns attractions are all within walking distance. Everything was well-maintained and clean. All my activities were able to collect me at the... More

From the moment we arrived, we were greeted by Helen who was fantastic. It actually took a long time to check in as she was very busy, but her calm, relaxed voice and the fact she acknowledged everyone in the room was fantastic. Customer service at its' best (something we have been lacking in Australia). Everywhere is clean and respected.... More
