Great, laid back hostel just a stroll away from the city centre of Cairns. The staff were very friendly and always ready to help out or give helpful advice. Will definitely be staying there if my travels bring me back to Cairns.

Great location just behind Cairns Central, allowing you to escape the busy main CBD area but still be within walking distance of all the main streets, attractions and esplanade. Spotlessly clean hostel, well equipped with anything you could need. Staff are lovely, especially Helen and Vanessa on the front desk. Couldn't be more helpful or friendly. Great place to stay.

Lovely hostel with a relaxed, slightly hippy kind of vibe. The staff were so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. Everything was clean and comfy, and great common areas for hanging out and getting to know people. A couple of social events laid on each week - pizza one night, kangaroo/emu/crocodile barbecue another. Just a great place... More

Travellers Oasis Backpackers was the best backpackers I've been to during my 4 month travel across Australia. The rooms, the kitchen area and the bathrooms were super clean. And without worrying about bed bugs and dirty sheets, I had the best sleep ever! I would definitely go there anytime again !

Really nice hostel just 10 minutes away from shops and esplanade. Nice clean comfortable rooms with the private rooms having the bonus of tv and fridge. Staff are the most helpful and friendliest I've come across and are helpful in booking tours and airport transfers. Struggling to think of any negatives except the pool could be a bit cleaner at...

The Perfect Backpack for a stop at Cairns! We went there for two nights and the room, the services and atmosphere were perfect. Don't hesitate, if you want to have good time for an affordable price: Go for it! Norman
