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

My bf and I had a great time at the Travellers Oasis. Our room was comfortable and the deck with a hammock was a wonderful way to relax and take it all in. Helen and the staff were helpful and friendly. While we were only in cairns for 3 days, the staff gave us wonderful recommendations that made our trip... More

This was my first time in a "hostel" and I think its fair to say it spoiled my future hostel experiences. Like every other review says, this is like staying in someones cozy guest house. The hostel is in a nice quiet area but walking distance to town, the rooms are clean and come with a safe for every bed,... More

There isn't a single bad word to say about this hostel. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. We stayed for a few nights and they helped us and recommended possibly the best trip we did during our stay in Australia. The rooms are nice and they provide you with towels which is a luxury in hostels! They also give... More

I booked in for one night and had a lovely stay. The rooms were bright, clean and very attentive staff. The pool is lovely and there is a large kitchen to cook in. I would recommend this place but there is a fair walk from town so I moved to a hotel closer to town.

If you want a hostel with a homey-atmosphere, Travellers Oasis is the place to stay! We've been staying here for several weeks and already when checking in we felt like we were home, it's like a gigant family where everybody helps each other. The staff will help you with anything you might need or want to do, just ask them... More

This was undoubtedly the best hostel I have ever stayed in! Wonderful atmosphere with the most helpful staff - especially Helen! Very clean and well maintained - you can tell that the owners take great pride in the hostel. They run a fantastic Aussie barbecue with crocodile, kangaroo and emu at the sister hostel on a Monday which is not... More

We are a couple that stayed for 9 nights in a private double in this hostel. The hostel is located right behind the Cairns Shopping Centre which makes it very convenient for shopping and getting supplies from Coles. The location of this hostel is makes it a quieter place as it's away from all the pubs which we appreciated. We... More

Mickey & Helen are very welcoming and so knowledgeable on the tours that would fit your needs and budget :) When I had to leave very... More
