    Traveller's Oasis is the best hostel I've ever stayed at (and ended up staying three times (14 nights) during my holiday in Queensland). It is as they call it: a slice of paradise. You feel welcome here. The staff are friendly, helpful and able to support all sorts of travel plans. The hostel is very clean and the beds are comfortabel with propper sheets. The kitchen has everything one may need and it is never to full. BBQ night is great! I highly recommend this hostel, you will love it.

    I absolutely love the environment of this place and the staff really adds to what makes it so wonderful. Upon arrival I sat down with the staff at the front desk who helped me book several tours. They were so accommodating and really took the time to help me select a tour that best fit my budget and goals! The place is cleaned frequently too and feels incredibly homey which is lovely while travelling. The atmosphere and events make it a great place to meet people if you are a solo traveller too!

    One of my favorite hostel experiences. The outdoor communal areas were well-used and made it easy to meet other travelers. I had a single room which was small but comfortable - the bed was soft and there was an overhead fan and a mini-fridge. Free wifi worked well most of the time. They are STRICT about quiet hours, so no alochol/partying after 10PM! The hostel staff also helped me book all my day trips and did a good job presenting options without pressure.

    I loved this place!! It’s has a super cool feel, is about a 10 minute walk to everything, and the staff were so nice and helpful. Mickey at reception is great - he helped me book my snorkel adventure based on which one was within my price range. I would say the only thing that didn’t give it a 10/10 is most people stick to themselves when eating, etc. so not the most social place but I did end up meeting a girl who was on the same snorkel trip as me

    Really nice hostel. A bit out of the way but enjoyed my stay. It feels more fancy : bed done at arrival, towel provided. However, it is really not social (mature people and families). Also there are almost no bathroom. They often were all taken at night so I had to wait to take my shower/go to the bathroom.

Travellers Oasis says

I'd say that what makes us special is that we pride ourselves on our attention to detail - it's not for nothing our manager won the Cairns Tourism Association's 2012 Award for Service Excellence! In fact, I think our customer service is second to none.
Another unique feature is that we have extremely comfortable beds. There's no bunk beds, only single and loft beds. Plus, there's extra pillows in the double rooms and hammocks throughout the hostel gardens. We even have a swimming pool and sun deck!
Cairns Central Shopping Centre is just across the road, while the Green Ant Cantina - a local favourite restaurant and bar - is around the corner. The Pro Dive school is only a three minute walk away - and of course you can't miss the Great Barrier Reef!
Our hostel is ideally suited for all ages - the young and the young-at-heart. Gabriel, Owner
