From reading the reviews we expected a good experience but we were wrong....we had FANTASTIC time! From booking our activities and transport (thanks Helen!) to the general chilled vibe of the place, I've never experienced anything better in all my travels and will whole heartedly recommend this hostel to any traveller wanting to stay in Cairns. Keep up the good... More

This is a lovely youth hostel in a huge 'old Queenslander' building, very traditional architecture for the region. This place is located in Cairns only 5-10 mins walk from the centre of town and as such, is far more quiet and relaxed. The service from the staff (Helen) was incredible. So friendly and thoughtful. Great value for money. This place... More

Travellers' Oasis is the perfect choice for those who want a quiet stay in Cairns in order to do lots of activities around the city. The hostel, is located in the perfect spot: right next to the train station/mall (where it's posssible to do the grocery shopping) and very close to the bars and restaurant area and only 10/15 minutes...

Fantastic little place. We had a double room and it had a balcony and hammock. The room was a good size and had a ceiling fan and you could pay a dollar for air con. It was very clean and the kitchens were very well equipped. The staff were lovely and very knowledgeable on the area. Could not fault it!

In 9 months of travelling through NZ and Australia, Traveller's Oasis was definitely one of my absolute favorite hostels. I was afraid that I'd only find loud Party Hostels in Cairns, but Traveller's Oasis really is what it claims to be. It has such a great atmosphere and i really enjoyed relaxing in the hostel and hanging around in the... More

I stayed here for half a week in August and my stay was exceptional. I stayed in a private single room. The accommodations were clean, comfortable, quiet and a great value for the price. The pool and common areas were charming. The staff were efficient, friendly and incredibly helpful when it to came to suggestions for restaurants and excursions. You... More

Just spent 3 nights here. Wowrd by the staff, so helpful and interested in everything we did. They took the time to offer tips on where to eat and visit with a real personal knowledge of their own. Rooms were well appointed for a hostel and the hammocks made it difficult to leave. I would recommend this place to anyone... More

First time to cairns and stayed here for two nights. The staff were so warm and welcoming on arrival, going through any trips I was thinking of booking. There were several options for each thing I wanted to do and they gave recommendations based on my type of preference. Felt no pressure if I didn't book either which is typically... More

This hostel feels a bit more like a home than many big and chaotic hostels. The sitting and eating area is very nice and has some pretty decoration. Staff is very friendly and helpful! The only thing that could be improved is the bathroom situation, there are very few bathrooms so you always have to wait for some time. The... More
