Travellers Oasis, from the second I got there, was amazing. All of the staff are amazing, and so friendly. We stayed for 6 nights which meant we really settled in. We were in a 6 bed room, but in a little annexe off it, which was lovely and felt kind of private. It's a really quirky hostel, which means it... More

The location was very nice, quite close to the CBD by walking (5 minutes), the place itself very quiet and pleasant, no loud noises and annoying situations whatsoever, the rooms and all facilities were clean and tidy, and they have a wonderful staff!. I did enjoy my stay, it´s perfect for couples, small groups and even if you´re travelling solo.... More

Great hostel. Lovely staff and truly unique. Beautifully decorated. Only have a few complaints. 1. No top sheet on the bed. Firstly eww. Most places never wash comforter/duvets so hygiene is a little lacking there. Also the polyester bedspread made it so sweaty and hot. I couldn't sleep well at all. Bring your own sheet! 2. No rubbish bin in... More

I stayed in a private room which was clean and comfortable with decent wifi and shared facilities. I met some lovely people there, and found friends to take a road trip with. I can't speak highly enough of the staff, particularly Helen, who went that extra mile to make sure I had a great time and gave lots of super... More

I had an absolutely marvelous time during my stay at Travellers Oasis! It was very clean and quiet, the people I met were awesome and in general were very respectful of both the hostel and your good night's rest. Helen and Mickey are amazing, as well as the entire Travellers Oasis Team! They recommended and booked all my tours, and... More

The room was lovely and comfy, and we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Probably the nicest staff and room we have had in a hostel in our whole time in Oz! Good location too. Only negative points are that there was only one toilet and shower for the whole floor (6 rooms) which at times was frustrating,... More

This is an extremely well run hostel with great staff that make everyone feel at home. As the hostel is relatively small and not as busy as others you receive a personalised experience, staff asking how your day has been and remembering you by name which is a nice touch. The hostel is impeccably clean, the beds comfy and rooms... More

Stayed in travelers oasis for over a week whilst doing a trip on the reef. Great vibes, chilled out, fun bbq and pizza evening. Happy and friendly staff who will go over and above to assist. Both Helen and Jo are awesome and give great advice on tours with cairns and on what to do after you leave. Couldn't recommend... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Traveller's Oasis for almost a week. Our double-bedroom was clean and the fridge en suite saved our lives. Walls to the dorms next door were not particularly soundproof, but that probably comes with the kind of building that it is. At least this way, you get the feeling of staying in a jungle hut....
