I really enjoyed it here. The atmosphere is cozy and friendly, and the best part is the staff here. They're very lovely and helpful people who are willing to give you all the support and the best advice, both before (via email) and during your trip. The hostel is located a bit far from the center, in a quiet neighborhood....

If you want a nice hostel (and not a party hostel) i can recommend Travellers Oasis. The bedrooms are nice, the kitchen is clean, the bathrooms maybe a little bit small but ok. We had a 4 bedroom and a double room. Double room was simple but nice. 4 Bedroom was ok, a little bit small for 4 persons and...

The atmosphere is amazing and it's easy to make friends at this super relaxt place. There is a pool, there are great kitchens equipped with everything you need. There...

Good staff and very clean hostel, close to everything you might want to do in Cairns (shopping mall accross the street so you dont have to always go out to eat and you can cook in one of the two kitchens of the hostel). The location was great considering that i was taking some scuba diving lessons at pro dive...

Stayed in a mixed 3 bed dorm for 3 nights... very good experience. Clean rooms, bathrooms, laundry facilities. Great staff, and met lots of great people here. The only issue was with the thickness of the duvet in these summer months! A light sheet would have been enough, especially as you have to pay for AC (not much, but a...

Thank you for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We do have lovely thick duvets, with removal covers on the outside, giving each guest the option, as some like to have a thick cover once in the air con. Safe travels

I loved staying at Travellers Oasis! The staff are extremely friendly and it's a homey place to stay. They have two kitchens, a pool, and laundry room. If I come back to Cairns, I'll definitely stay here again. It's about a 20 minute walk down to the lagoon and less than 5 minutes to the mall. It's near a bunch...

I got a quick booking at Travellers Oasis as I just needed a couple of night's accommodation before heading to the reef. I'm so glad I did. They sorted me out quickly, they're professional and very friendly. There's a large selection of extra activities if you want to use the hostel as a base. The backpackers BBQ and open air...

Stayed at this place for five days. The television in my single room and safe under the bed made the place feel quite luxurious. The property is sprawling, with two kitchen areas and a television lounge, but the decorations make the place feel homey and relaxed at the same time. I've hardly met friendlier receptionists; they seemed genuinely pleased to...
