Cairns was the first place we headed on entering Australia to start our one year working visa. We had read some really good reviews of the Travellers Oasis and they were all totally right! The place itself is well located, comfy, friendly and absolutely spotless, a total home away from home.
The thing that makes this place stand out from the rest though were the staff. We had a number of things to sort out when we arrived including setting up bank accounts, getting medicare cards, buying a car and all of the things that go along with that. This is where Helen, the manager of the hostel Helen went truly above and beyond what we would have expected. She gave us the pearls of her wisdom on all of the above and even called the hostel owner Gabe for a few bits of info on the car that she couldn't answer herself.
There are a number of live in staff members also who clean the hostel daily (this is why it is so pristine). These individuals were also very friendly and helpful in the advice they gave. Most of the staff had done the majority of the trips also so excellent advice can be had with regards to this.
If we return to Cairns, this is the only place we would stay.
