“Best hostel by far”
Reviewed 18 July 2013

This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. They were so helpful. Everything was booked for us. It was extremely clean. Staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. It was like being part of a family. We'll be back mummy Helen :)

One of the greatest hostel I have ever been to. I stayed in a 4 bed room. The room and the shared bathrooms were clean. The people at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful. Also the atmosphere was very welcoming and warm. It was very easy to socialise with other guests and organise barbecues in the outdoor "dining room".

We stayed here for over a week and found it hard to leave! It's in a very nice location, not far from the centre but enough distance to avoid all the noise. The rooms are clean and the kitchens well equipped, the staff are friendly and Helen is extremely helpful. We would happily stay again!

I chose this hostel as it didnt seem to be such a 'party crowd' im in my 30s and didnt want to be woken up by 17 year olds spewing all night! The hostel is brilliant, clean, tiday. clean bathrooms and showers, laundry, outside areas, kitchen, free tea and coffee. I really cant think of how it could be better. Vet mixed crowd from 18-40 year olds so i didnt feel too old! Helen the manager was so helpful and booked all my trips for me for no cost. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and to help you with any questions. I would definitely stay hyere again. Oh and it's so cheap as well!

I usually don't write recommandation for hotel/hostel after staying there but I have to make an exception for Travelers Oasis : it's clean, beautiful, convenient, cheap and with the best/nicest staff I've ever experienced... If you want to spend a few nights in Cairns that's definitly the best place you can go :)
If you can stay there until Monday, they organize an excellent all you can eat Aussie BBQ for only12dollars : you can eat some very good beef sausages but also try emu, crocodile and kangaroo ! (very good by the way)

Staff is super friendly; knows your name and is super interested in your stay. I wanted to stay another night, but the hostel was fully booked, so I had to move hostels. But the staff arranged for a shuttle to get me there! In the end, they even arranged for me to stay at this hostel, and I didn't even have to change beds. Very nice :) The poolarea is very nice for some afternoon napping. Easy to meet people in the BBQ area. Hostel is very clean as well. Other pro's: free wifi, two kitchens and professional staff. This was one of the best places I've stayed in so far.

I'm not surprised this place comes so high up the list of places to stay in Cairns. It is a perfect backpackers hostel. The best welcome we received anywhere with a full guided tour of all the facilities. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. The room was clean and comfortable with a good, quiet fan. There are really nice kitchens for cooking your own meals and a beautiful pool area. We would definitely stay here again.
