Travellers Oasis was recommended to us by a fellow traveller and friend and it did not disappoint. When arriving at the hostel Helen on the desk could not be more helpful and informative about every question or query we had for her. The hostel had a lovely family feel to it and was kept thoroughly clean at all times. They... More

By far the best hostel I have seen and stayed in Australia. Not to big, friendly and clean I stayed here for 1 night in a private room. The next day I left to Travellers Paradise. The staff is helpful, friendly and shows you around. They emailed me a couple days before arrival to to tell me that the reception... More

The staff are all super friendly and very helpful throughout the week long stay. It's great if you want a quiet and relaxing place to stay after having ventured out throughout the day and want a good nights rest. It is slightly out of the city so a bit of a walk to the esplanade but it is across the... More

We chose Traveller's Oasis because of its glowing review on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. The staff is very friendly, the place very clean (we actually saw them cleaning the entire place everyday), and the BBQ was great. We stayed in a double room on the second floor and enjoyed a nice breeze at night, which means no need for... More

After staying 2 weeks in a YHA I have found this place to be a breath of fresh air. You can get a single room for a decent price, there is free Wi-Fi and they don't charge anything to store luggage all things that the YHA seem intent on fleecing you for! The hostel has a really relaxed vibe and... More
