Travellers Oasis was an excellent place to stay- clean, quiet and comfy single beds. A little bit of a walk to the esplanade however there is a supermarket across the road. Helen was the most charming, delightful, knowledgable, and sincere host I have ever come across. She has superb knowledge of all things Cairns and the GBR and will definately...

Stayed here at the beginning of April and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hostel is quiet and laid back but close to the nightlife cairns has to offer. I stayed in a 3 bed room which had 3 single beds. A welcome relief from bunk beds! The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and do an excellent job of keeping the place...

This place was recommended by one of my friends and it did not disappoint. It is conveniently located - 2 minute's walk from the shopping mall and 15 minutes walk to the esplanade. The hostel was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. It had a really good atmosphere. I stayed in a private room which was of a...

I was so glad I stayed at Travellers Oasis. It's way more than a hostel. I had a great single room, everything is very clean and the staff is just wonderful, especially Helen. They have an answer to your every need. So don't look further if you want to stay in Cairns. You won't be disappointed.

This was the first stop for us on our visit to oz and we were so happy we chose Travellers Oasis!

Traveller's Oasis is really a slice of paradise. You can relax there perfectly, Helen gives you perfect advice for trips or other concerns. I got really ill during my stay and she was so helpful and nice. Everything is only a short walk away. For Cairns this should be your number 1 choice of hostel.

I would highly recommend staying here. I'm a lone female traveller and stayed in both a single room and the dorms (as I stayed twice!). Everyone is made to feel welcome and the staff are all super friendly and lovely. They will try their hardest to get you on a tour that is suited to you and if it's booked...

AC works on coins. A few days into our stay 90 dollars worth of our wine and beer was stolen from the fridge located in the kitchen downstairs. There is a security camera pointed at the door but they did not find the culprit. We even filled in a report at the police station. Other people got stuff stolen from...
