    I stayed in the private room with balcony. There was a little fridge in the room - quite useful! The sheets were very clean and overall very pleasant stay. Floor could use a little cleaning tho and it was quite noise every night...but couldnt expect otherwise from a backpackers hostel:) thanks for a very friendly staff member Gaby who helped me book all my tours! Enjoyed my stay very much and would book again! Cheers

    I stayed here during the COVID lockdown. Gabe and Cathy, the hostel owners, took great care of us, which made such a big difference to my experience. Traveller's Oasis is clean, spacious, and naturally has a great vibe to it. I couldn't have asked for a better experience here. I'll definitely be going back, and I recommend this place to anyone I know who is going to Cairns.

    Loved staying here! Nicest hostel I've ever stayed at. Reasonably priced. Ended up extending my stay for 2 more weeks. Great staff and friendly people all around the hostel. Hostel gets cleaned everyday, enough fridge space, big kitchens and a great pool area. Felt safe within the hostel area itself the staff are very helpful with planning day and overnight trips (very imformative). Loved the location in terms of being close to the grocery store and bus stop, a little far from the beach.

    I stayed here in mid March and really enjoyed the place. Very close to the boat tours to explore the Great Barrier Reef, multiple kitchens and areas to sit outdoors. The rooms were cozy and the place was clean. Would recommend it to others!

    Great place with a nice relaxed atmosphere and very nice staff. Stayed there for 3 nights spread across 5 days (went on overnight tours) the staff, and mainly the manager were just great. Offering to store my stuff overnight while I was away. Everyone was pleasant, there were quite a lot of socializing going on, although I personally didn't take much part in it since I had a very filled out schedule. I highly recommend it and I know that if I ever go to Cairns again, this is where I will stay.

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
