Hostelworld says

Hostelworld guests have recommended Traveller's Oasis 'if you want a relaxed hostel with great people and a couple of [social] nights out'. This small, home-like hostel features a swimming pool and an outdoor terrace with BBQ as well as staff who are 'superb, full of helpful advice and always there when you have a question', according to our visitors. We like that there's no bunk beds in their dorms. They're located next to Cairns Central station, about 15 minutes' walk from the lagoon.

    not too surprising that this hostel is rated the best in Australia. Also stayed at Tropic days, which was amazing as well, just a (significant) bit farther from town. Both top tier hostels that are worth every penny. Why can't all hostels be this nice???

    大家都写英文,那么我就写中文吧。凯恩斯是个小城市,一天就可以逛完,大家基本都是想去看大堡礁的。Travellers Oasis里的气氛真的很和谐,工作人员热情这就不用说了,他们非常可爱。可能有评论说厕所少什么的,但这毕竟是个小城市,要求不要那么高嘛,我觉得设施都蛮好的,很有家的感觉。离市中心近,走到码头和海边泳池只需十五分钟。来住青旅的中国人还是比较少,大家都是跟团或者朋友一起住酒店,但还是真心推荐大家住青旅,室友都很好,我的东西随便放在地上也没人拿走,有保险箱我都没用。晚上就坐在一起聊天,周一晚上可以一起去青旅元老家吃鳄鱼袋鼠肉BBQ,然后会有澳洲土著乐器Didgeridoo比赛,大家都没玩过,我靠着吃饭吃出来的肺活量得了第一赢了青旅的T恤,时刻努力着给国人争气吧哈哈。另外说下去大堡礁的tour,我在外面报的evolution那条船,比较贵,但是船很豪华,有一百多人,吃的应该不错,我一天深潜了三次,晕船也没吃进去,但是潜点都是游客常去的那两个岛,珊瑚少有破坏,没那么美。我朋友订的别的船,70人左右,还看到了海龟鲨鱼,这也是看运气吧,看你想浮潜还是深潜了吧。

    Best way to describe this place is a home from home. Shared areas are very chilled. Only downside was the thin walls and the fact that other travellers use the living room until late which means you can hear everything all night. Deluxe Double private room was nice and the films on the TVs was a nice plus. I’d recommend getting an Uber from here to greyhound to avoid lugging bags or use their shuttle service. Air con was $1 which was an inconvenience as we didn’t have cash.

    Very Good

    Functional hostel, good atmosphere - friendly but not too party-hardy. We stayed in a double room which was on the small side. Pool area is nice and there's a separate area for smokers, as a non-smoker I highly appreciate that. Only downside was the noise of people coming home during the night who had another beer at the pool area. As our window was right beside the main gate that woke us up. Staff is very friendly.

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
