    Best hostel I’ve ever stayed at. This is basically a resort with NICE shared facilities. So charming and authentic, comfortable and spacious. So hard to explain how wonderful it is and so hard to see it in photos. Definitely recommend staying here. 10/10

    Beautiful hostel in a great location! Very much enjoyed my stay here. Only things I would comment on was all the the toilets and showers are like your normal bathrooms so if you need the bathroom and someone's showering, you're going to have to wait. Also bring coins as the air-conditioning comes as a pay as you go and you definitely need the aircon! Apart from that I would definitely recommend this hostel

    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.

    Chilled out vibe during the heat of the day (reggae music and hanging out in the swimming pool) - and a party vibe in the evening and throughout the night. Fortunately my room was away from the main common areas, so i slept fine. Is a friendly and easy-going hostel in a neighborhood which i liked, for the fact that it was off the beaten tourist track a little, yet, still within a walking distance from the main central area. Owner was cool and always working on something to improve things.

    The staff were great and it’s facilities were good with the pool, multiple kitchens and lounge spaces and tour desk. The location is a bit far away from the main parts of cairns, it’s only a 10 min walk, but with the town being pretty deserted right now it didn’t feel the safest. The group dinner they ran on a Monday was excellent but other than that there wasn’t much of a social vibe around the place. Seemed like mainly longer term people living there at the moment.

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
