The service at Traveller's Oasis is unparalleled! They helped me choose the most memorable tours that made Cairns my favourite vacation destination of all time. Night scuba diving with sharks, 5000ft up in a hot air balloon and pristine jungle views from Skyrail... all within 3 days! I can't thank the team enough at Traveller's Oasis for going above and...

From Sydney to Cairns by far the best hostel on the east coast. Good atmosphere! Nice and really competent staff, that always will help you with booking your next tour in the area. The staff are very knowledgeable.

I stayed here in December 2016 and it was the best hostel I stayed in during 4 months of travel. It's a very quiet hostel with a lovely pool (not a party hostel though social events are still organised). The rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped with proper safes and no bunks. The kitchens are also well equipped. The...

Great place to stay, it has this intimate touch that makes it so much more cosy than just any other hostel. Nice swimming pool, hammocks in the chillout area, a lot of space to just lay down and rest in this tropical weather. Staff is super helpful as well.

Staying in Travellers Oasis is a great choice for any solo traveller such as myself. Staff is extremely kind and flexible, upon booking trips that include overnight stay at different location instant refund for these days and an option to leave luggage in a hostel applies. It is clean and the atmosphere is really great (if you are 24+, as...

Me & my sister stayed here while travelling the east coast of Oz. In all hostels we have stayed in, travellers oasis by far out-dos the other places we have stayed at. We arrived at the facilities after staying at Gilligans, feeling tired, fed up & (a little hungover) - as soon as we walked into the entrance, we could...

Stay here! I've been to many hostels and this ranks up there as one of the best. The staff (Mikey, JP, Karina and the owner) were amazing. The internet is reliable, the staff personalizes the stay, the facilities are always clean and up kept, and there's a pool to escape the heat. I can't say enough good things about this...
