My partner and I stayed here on our first stop in Australia and it was perfect. The location is right by the main shopping centre and you can park outside for free! The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and emailed us instructions to get the room key due to them being temporarily out of office. When we met them...

Great backpacker next to central station and central shopping center. 15min walk to the esplanade. The staff is awesome, helpful with booking tours and tickets if needed. Nice rooms, well equiped kitchens and laundry facilities. Little pool to hang out and hammoks and tables in the shades. Its great. Just great.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Traveller's Oasis. Everything was just perfect! The kitchens were cleaned daily (even the windows!), the staff were super friendly and offered great advice. Everything was walkable from its location; the shopping centre with Coles is a 5mins walk and the lagoon on the sea front would take you about 15mins. My bedroom was fine...

I enjoyed my stay at Travellers Oasis. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and there's a nice atmosphere. The hostel has a swimming pool, kitchen etc. and they can help you book tours. The room was clean and each person had their own safe. The location is not too bad, although it is a 10-15 minute walk to the...

I stayed here in November 2016 as the first stop on my 6-month travels through Australia and SE Asia. I would say this was the most sociable place I stayed in Australia. Staff is awesome and super helpful. Facilities are good and clean. Not a party hostel but great social atmosphere - I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice hostel. Clean and very friendly staff. Easy to meet other travelers. I stayed in a single and then a 3 person room. Never felt too crowed and each bed had its own safe. The hostel is located about a 15 minute walk to the Esplanade. Supermarket inside a mall is just 5 minutes away. The only concern was...
