I have never stayed anywhere where you get a welcome as good as you do here! The staff are so friendly and amazingly helpful, and helped me plan my whole trip down the East Coast, giving excellent recommendations for tours and trips all the way down to Melbourne. Not only was this the best hostel I stayed in in Australia... More

Although I only check in at tea-time and left early the next morning, I immediately sensed that this was a decent hostel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful when I checked in. I booked into a single room, which was well furnished and maintained, as was the bathroom area located nearby. A ceiling fan hung above, although coins... More

After staying in A LOT of hostels all over the world Travellers Oasis has exceeded anywhere else, and I imagine it will stay at #1 for a long time yet! When we arrived we had just booked in for 1 night and ended up calling it home for our whole 3 week trip to Cairns. As soon as we arrived... More

Wow, what can I say about Travellers Oasis. I arrived at the hostel skeptical that it could live up to the reviews that had honored it and boy was I surprised. On check in we were greeted by the most friendly, helpful, pleasant and as many more positive adjectives you could associate with members of staff who remember your name... More

The hostel is lovely! One of the best hostels I've ever been. First of all the staff are great! Very kind and helpful. The bedroom is very clean, it has air conditioning but you have to pay 1 dollar to use 3 hours. It is fine because is not very warm at night even during the summer. The swimming pool... More

As a hostel/beach house accommodation it's good. The rooms are decent and there's a pool; the staff are also extremely friendly... However, the location is bad. To walk to the beach it's at least 15minutes walk, which, in the cairns climate is a bit of a killer. Pay just a few dollars more and stay somewhere on the seafront- otherwise... More

I loved staying at Travellers Oasis- the staff genuinely enjoyed what they did, were flexible, and incredibly accommodating. The location was within walking distance of everything I needed and there were lots of opportunities for fun things to do during the days and in the evenings. I would travel back in a heartbeat!

Stayed here for 3 nights in January. Paid for a private double room. Great location. Lovely clean room. Huge outdoor communal area and pool. Stayed here to scuba dive the reef and go on different day tours. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Cairns centre.

Well located, this backpacker hostel is exceptional thanks to his staff. More than happy to help, they will make your trip in Australia easier. I stayed only 2 nights there, but wish I could have stayed longer

Exceptionally friendly and helpful, clean premesis, really well fitted out, top location near restaurants, shopping complex, train but far enough away from noise of city. Felt well welcomed and safe. Highly recommended. We'll be back if we visit cairns again. Thanks!
