But my son Scott was there for a few weeks and loved it. He didn't want to explore the rest of Australia as he didn't want to leave Traveller's Oasis. He had even lost his phone and they were super helpful in trying to get it back, which fortunately and surprisingly he did find it. I believe he had lost... More

Relaxed atmosphere, pretty clean and very friendly staff. The kitchen is big and well eqipped. Unfortunately there are not enough bathrooms. At the time when I was there. 2 bathrooms had been renovated for more than one week. They started on a Sunday morning. Every day noise from 8am without any warnings. After complaining no apologies, no discounts...It was not... More

Thanks so much for your review and for staying at our hostel. We are glad you enjoyed our lovely new kitchens, which were improvements made last month & you enjoyed our relaxed vibe & friendly team.

Had a lovely time! Staff is lovely and friendly. Rooms are clean. They make your bed, you even get a towel. There's a pool, 2 kitchens, enough toilets/showers, 2 chilling area's, a BBQ and a tour office. Loved the BBQ night on monday! The coles supermarket is 10min walk. Esplanade probably 30min. Better book for more nights, you can always... More

The main reason we booked to stay here was the good reviews, we wanted a quiet, friendly hostel that's close to the centre. Travellers Oasis is those things and more!! The staff - they give recommendations and advice not just because it's their job but because they care that you have a good time. Everyday we came back and walked... More

Best hostel to stay at in Cairns. Very friendly staff who helped book all my reef/ tours/fishing efficiently with only one day notice. 2 min walk to supermarket, 15 minute walk into town/esplanade. Unlimited wifi, no extra charges + free towel 'rental'.

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!
