“feels like a home away from home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

I recently arrived in cairns, unsure of what direction to go in. i came across this hostel and booked for 2 nights, then stayed for 2 weeks. i cleaned for accommodation and i loved every minute, didn't even mind scrubbing toilets. i really did find an oasis to recoup and have fun and learn and discover the surrounding area. All the staff are so friendly and helpful. This will be my hotel of choice whenever I'm in the area . Thanks to all the wonderful people who made my stay here so wonderful. It has a very homely feel, the facilities are top notch and of course the people are amazing.

Room Tip: lots of option, dorms, singles or doubles, they are all wonderful

I only planned to stay in Cairns for one week but I had such a great time at Travelers Oasis I ended up staying for two weeks. It’s clean with a great relaxed atmosphere. It’s right next to the mall so anything you need is right there and it’s a short walk to the downtown area. As a result you’re close to the party but when you are ready to sleep you won’t have any trouble doing so. It’s the best of both worlds. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this hostel…It’s a good price for the budget backpacker and you won’t be disappointed!! Cheers!! Oh and the Monday night bbqs are awesome to meet ppl and have a chance to eat kangaroo, crocodile, and emu

I travelled all over Australia and stayed in that many places and yet none of them compare to Travellers Oasis. Its clean, friendly, great location and no bunk beds!! Its a small family run business which is the secret to its success, the staff were able to help me plan and personalise my trip down the Queensland coast. Oh and not to meantion the Aussie BBQ's!! Great food and an amazing night out. Thank you Travellers!

Spent 4 nights here in mid January, the first thing to say is how fantastic the staff are, cheerful and helpful at all times. The room that we stayed in was a private double, the bathroom facilities were shared with guests in two other rooms. Rooms are spacious enough, they lack a bit of storage space but the small balcony area was a nice touch. The air con was coin operated, one dollar for three hours and was quite noisy but essential when staying there in January as the humidity was tremendous. The guys on reception were really helpful in advising us on booking trips to Cape Tribulation, Atherton Tablelands and white water rafting on the Tully River. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hostel for 7 days in March. The hostel was very nice and clean like many reviews have stated. The only and big problem where the owners and staff. I wasn't a first time visitor and had lived in Cairns before, so I had lots of contacts in town. In the beginning owners and staff where very friendly and helpful, but as soon as they noticed that I wouldn't buy any tours from them, just use it as accommodation, they became very unfriendly and hostile. I was booked for 14 days, but changed to another hostel after 7 days.

If it hadn't been for the unfriendly and rude service I would recommend this hostel to all and everyone visiting Cairns.

Hi There, Thank you for your review and thank you you for reccomending Travellers Oasis to other readers...we except all positive comments humbly and will always follow up any complaints. I am Gabriel the owner and I love being apart of travellers coming from around the world and staying with us. My wife(my boss) and I have so much fun working here we are so lucky, As for the staff...We have the most amazing people who work here at Travellers Oasis...our manager has just won the Cairns regional tourism award for excellence in customer service, she would have to be one of the most welcoming person you could meet on your travels..the same person who you would of met during your stay. I understand we can not please everybody but 99.9% of the time we do, but we will try 100% of the time. I understand it has taken 1 year to post your review..but we are all still here and would love to see you again in the future.

On freezing, frosty mornings in London, memories of Travellers Oasis warm me. The fact the hostel is beautiful, clean, spacious and considered provide the perfect bed on which to make life-long friends and create a unique holiday experience. It is an understatement to call the staff friendly; they will go out of their way to include you, look after you and advise you on activities without ever being intrusive. I cannot recommend more highly and it speaks volumes that to this day (over a year on) I still miss Travellers Oasis.
