I had read this is the BEST hostel in Cairns. I doubt it, but it was not bad at all. Has a pool which is great for muggy nights in northern QLD. There were tons of bugs but I don't think this can be really controlled in this type of climate with a somewhat open-concept hostel. Good price, and pretty...

Very clean and tidy. Staff were all very friendly. Were in a double room - just fits the double bed and fridge in but that's all you really need for the price. Have to pay for the air con but not a problem for us as it was winter and raining!

The cute web design and friendly navigation caught my interest when browsing online for backpackers hostels in Cairns, which prompted me choose this hostel as my stay in Cairns. Had no regrets after booking confirmation was made. Once I was dropped by airport bus shuttle, I was greeted by the friendliest welcoming from Helen. Never in trip have I met...

Travelled half a year through Australia & NZ and this hostel is the very best I stayed in. It's really quite in the evening, very clean and is great located in Cairns. The staff is super friendly and helps you with everything you need. Really great for backpackers. Everytime again. Thanks for staying with you Travellers Oasis !!!

I've stayed in dozens of hostels in Australia and Europe and this has been the best customer service I've ever had! We got to the hostel with no booking and the office was closed, but Gabe happened to see us and opened up the office to get us a room and ended up talking to us for an hour, organizing...

I have stayed at several hostels across Europe and a few in Australia. Hands down the best Hostel experience. Helen is wonderful, the place is wonderful, the people were wonderful. Will definitely stay again if I find myself in Cairns again!

This is the second time I have stayed here. Even if it was for 1 day, I really like this hostel. It is not to big, and the hostel is devided over multiple buildings/houses (3 or 4). This gives even more the feeling that this hostel is small and cozy. The buildings are made of wood, so they can be...

For such good prices, the rooms have space and are cleaned every morning, as well as the whole hostel. The communal areas (kitchen, bathrooms/toilets) may look small but there so few customers staying 24/7 in the hostel that you almost never wait for anything. It's well located in a quiet neighborhood but still close to a big mall (1min walk)...

Incredibly helpful front desk that organizes all kinds of fun events and tours. BBQ night over at their sister lodge should not be missed. Excellent facilities - kitchen, pool and lounge areas are very welcoming and maintained. If I was pressed to say a negative - location. It's in a residential neighborhood and you have to walk around or through...
