The shuttle service was great, I was picked up and whisked to the hostel in no time and had a nice chat on the way. The rooms aren't swanky but they are pretty, sufficient and clean. I did a mix room with three beds because it was cheaper and met two lovely people traveling solo like me. I did the... More

My friend and I had such a brilliant time staying here! The hosts were great, really friendly and a good laugh! Would definitely recommend staying here. Great info and help on trips and good discounts! Pretty much tried every room, as we kept extending our stay..and all of them were really good, with comfortable beds and duvet covers (real bonus!)...

What a fantastic hostel in a fantastic location- far enough away from the Centre of town to get a decent nights sleep but close enough to be in the main shopping centre within 5 minutes and at the gorgeous lagoon within 15 minutes! John at reception was always so friendly and helpful and made me feel completely at ease when... More

I spent about a week or so here with my husband during our R and R from Afghanistan. It was better than the fancy resort or the hotel that we also stayed in here. The hosts are so warm, helpful, and funny! You automatically feel like you are staying with a house of friends and family members. They also held... More

Staff are fantastic - very friendly, really knowledgeable and nothing is too much trouble. I had a single room which was basic but good and the communal areas and bathrooms are really clean. I felt at home here and very safe. Recommended!

This place is sooo good. It's clean, got loads of character, nice rooms and nice people. The staff are always willing to help and very laid back. The facilities are impeccable and the pool is awesome! We even had a balcony with a hammock attached to our double at the fab price of 78 bucks! If we go back to... More

Great experience! - Wonderful staff, very professional. Front desk opens at 7AM which is convenient when you have to check in your cruise at 7:30AM - Great value at only $45 for a single room - Good location (just a 10-min walk to the Reef Terminal and restaurants/bars) - Lot of space in the hostel (several buildings, swimming pool surrounded...

The reception staff were great with booking tours, which was helpful because we only had two days here. The pool and kitchen are really tropical and they make it feel peaceful. There were hamocks all around. The room was a private double and we were in general happy with the room. Not too sure why they have pay meters on... More

This was my second visit to Travellers Oasis. I had been here a year earlier and loved it. The quality and standard of service and the facilities is still amazingly high compared to many other hostels I have stayed at. I was picked up at the airport by Kerri who was very helpful and lovely to talk to. She went... More

I stayed here almost a year ago but I figured it was better late than never! This was by FAR the best hostel I stayed at in my 8 months in Australia. Helen at the front desk is phenominal! She sat with me for literally hours to help me plan, not just things to do in Cairns, but all the... More
