First of all Helen on the front desk is an absolute legend, be nice to her as she will help you out so much! When I arrived I had no plans beyond the first few days and she was happy to sit down and talk through where I wanted to go next, what tours I should do, where I should stay etc. And then she even booked them for me!
The hostel has everything you need, the rooms are spacious (no bunks just single beds) a nice little pool and just a great chilled out vibe. There's a bbq night and pizza night which are useful for getting to meet your fellow travellers but I found everyone there was very approachable anyway. Many travellers were solo travellers but I also saw families and even a couple on their honeymoon there.
Yep its not right in the middle of town but its an easy walk to everything you might need and this helps to give it the chilled out atmosphere. All'n'all having visited many more hostels since I appreciate travellers oasis even more...it does exactly what it says on the tin!
