Travellers Oasis Backpackers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Overall Traveller's oasis is a decent place to stay but I had a couple of gripes. 'Private balcony' is in fact a shared balcony, with a wooden divider. The safe didn't work. The TV remote didn't work. The sheets smelled a bit odd (a bit wet dog smell). Walls are quite thin (think noisy neighbours that can be loud). Now that's the bad out the way. On the upside the staff were helpful and friendly. It's clean. Location is decent. Good cheap airport pick-up.

Travellers oasis was clean and the atmosphere was great. A friend and I stayed for 3 nights and loved it. Everyone working there was really friendly and helped a lot with booking the best tours and activities. Although this was not a party hostel they had great deals with the local pubs for really cheap drinks and meals. The communal kitchens, lounges and bathrooms were great- clean and spacious. They also had free wifi which was defiantly a bonus!! Would defiantly stay here again.

This is the best place to stay and meet amazing people. The room and the shared bathrooms were clean. The people at the front desk were extremely nice and helpful, especially Helen. Also the atmosphere was very welcoming and warm. It was very easy to socialise with other guests and organise barbecues.

I went here with 3 of my friends when we planned to see the reef and rain forest. It has friendly staff and a great outdoor area which gave a great feel to the place. The rooms were basic but comfortable and the aircon was fantastic which was needed. Although we booked our excursions without the aid of the hostel they did offer to help us with any thing else we planned, My only problem is the odd (in my opinion) reception hours. But either than that it is well worth the money you pay

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!
