Travellers Oasis was my first hostel in Australia, so I had pretty much built a picture in my mind on what to expect. I avoided all the party hostels and did my research, as I wanted a quiet retreat after our long flight. We got cheap transfers from the hotel ($10 each) and were pleasantly surprised with the homely appearance... More

We stayed in ALOT of hostels during our travels around Australia and I have to say this was the best. Clean, safe and well laid out. Incredibly helpful staff (very knowledgable about all the different options for reef tours). We stayed in a delux double room and had our own balcony and hammock - amazing! Nothing bad to say about... More

Stayed here for 2 nights at beginning and end of a short trip to North Qld. Very well equipped kitchens, kept spotlessly clean. Pleasant outdoor dining area with Weber BBQ. Staff were super helpful and friendly. The Monday night BBQ at their sister hostel is fun and worth going to. Some rooms noisier than others but everything quietens down by... More

Friendly staff, good location, and quiet at night. I was traveling alone and this hostel is full of friendly people. It was easy to make some new friends am get suggestions on what to do during my stay. It was in walking distance from stores, the lagoon, bars, and bottle shops. I loved that I coul come home at night... More

I stayed for 5 nights and couldn't fault a thing. Everything was clean and tidy and the staff were very amazing from booking tours or just having a chat. The light in our room went out so we went down to reception and they came right up to replace it. The best thing has to be the showers, hot and... More

This was a good hostel, but I'm afraid they might be resting on their laurels a little bit. With the fantastic reviews up here and the '#1 hostel in oceania' flyers everywhere I was expecting a bit more. Good points: - Great wifi, strong reception, fast speed. - Nice layout, several communal areas, relaxed atmosphere. - Quiet area and rooms.... More

Hi Penelope, Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed all the facilities we offer. I do not agree with you saying we are sitting back on our laurels, this is not a fair thing to say considering the hard work that all our staff put in, we have great reviews and are ranked very high on a lot of web...

The rooms were absolutely spotless, along with all communal areas. The majority of staff were brilliant. Helen, Micky and Marco are an absolute credit to the hostel; lovely, lovely people. The...

We only stayed here for a night before we flew out of Cairns. It was definitely a quality hostel. Helen was awesome and amazingly accommodating. The Mexican restaurant next door was delicious and offered good deals. The hostel is a bit of a hike from the main part of Cairns (although I didn't actually walk this), but it was nicer... More

I stayed here for 6 nights which were split between a 3 bed room and a 6 bed room. In each of these I was in a single bed (no bunks!) which is such a luxury. The rooms and hostel were kept very clean. The kitchens were large enough and stocked well enough for the number of guests staying there.... More
