This hostel knocked our socks off as soon as we arrived. Mickey, who was at the front desk to check us in, was incredibly inviting. Though he has been in Cairns for five years and has probably seen many travelers come and go, ask for suggestions, and say the same thing over and over again, he really took his time... More

Wow!! This was so much more than I expected from a hostel. It was more like a hotel except we shared a washroom with one other couple (not attached to the rooms). We stayed in a room with a double bed and there was more than enough space. The hostel itself is beautiful... A very laid back, tropical vibe. There... More

The property is a nice backpackers accommodation located behind the Cairns train station (perfect, if you want to catch the early train to Kuranda). We booked the premium double room which had its own balcony and hamock, was clean and spacious and comprised a locker. The in-room aircon was 3 AUD for three hours, but is a relief during a... More

Travellers Oasis was by far the best place I have stayed whilst on my travels. It is definitely the place you should go if you want a relaxing environment. If you are more into the party scene then head to Giligans. The hostel is so comfortable - it really feels like you are in your own home! Free tea, coffee... More

This has been the best hostel we've been to in Australia, hands down. The staff is great, they all go that extra mile to help you and just make you feel very welcome and cared for. The hostel itself is new, definitely clean (much cleaner than average) and with nice colorful rooms. I absolutely recommend it.

I don't have one bad thing to say about this Hostel! The staff are really friendly and go out there way to help you out as much as they can, When booking tours they don't just tell you to go on the one which will make them the most money, but they give you there own personal experiences that they...

Clean tidy hostel, excellent public areas that encourage you to mingle. Really friendly staff and a relaxed hippie vibe. The BBQ hosted at the sister hostel Tropic Days was brilliant. A bus carted us to and from, the food was amazing and cooked to perfection with choices of crocodile, kangaroo and emu available! Met some really cool people and had... More

We stayed here in December 2014 and we do not have a bad word to say about the place. The staff were beyond helpful and friendly especially Helen! They all took the time to learn and remember everyone's names which we think is a nice personal touch. The rooms were really clean and you get given a towel which is... More

What a beautiful lovely friendly place to stay. We felt like we were in someone's home! The staff were so so welcoming and learnt our names straight away. We stayed in a deluxe double, big, comfy bed and private balcony with hammock. Perfect. Everyone should definitely join in the BBQ night and pizza night. Great value for money and also... More

We recently spent a month at Traveller's Oasis. One week staying in a double as guest's and three weeks working for accommodation. The hostel is easily one of the best in Australia and the staff who work there deserve alot of credit for that. The owner's Kathy and Gabe are excellent owner's who have a large input on a daily...
