A wonderful stay in Cairns, easeful environment and handsome staffs☺.
It located just beside the supermarket, and it is also near Cairns Quay, only 15mins walk.
It is really a peaceful space, you can enjoy the sunshine after noon.
I'm sure to choose this oasis next time to Cairns.

Room Tip: Everything's good, but maybe some insects in the room…

I stayed here last year with my boyfriend when we went travelling in Australia on an 'east coast adventure' we originally booked for 1 week which turned into 2 we loved it so much we didn't want to leave! Rooms are clean and comfortable and Helen the manager is amazing! She helped and recommended some amazing trips and couldn't help us enough! We stayed in several hostels down the east coast and this was by far the best! The Australian BBQ was delicious and free wifi was a god send! Such a relaxed atmosphere and a stones throw from town and the local Coles supermarket! Met some great friends and if I were to visit Australia again I would definitely return to Travellers Oasis!! 10/10

I stayed here for 7 nights and absolutely loved it. The staff are all fantastic and really go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. When it comes to booking tours they will look for the deal best flr you rather than push certain conpanies on you.


The beds are very comfortable and the whole place feels like hotel quality rather than a hostel. Kitchen and bathrooms are spotlessly clean.

What makes a great hostel other than staff is the people there and TO is a great place to meet people, its intimate and sociable with a nice mix of live in and backpackers. A party hostel this certainly isnt, its more a home away from home.

Was really sad to leave, thanks to Helen and all her staff for a great stay. Would not hesitate to return if returning to Cairns

This place was perfect! It really is an oasis, it's a fenced in private paradise. The atmosphere is very laid back and welcoming, the staff is excellent! Very clean and comfortable. It's quieter than the other hostels closer to the esplanade, but it can also be very social. Overall great stay, wish I could have stayed longer!

I don't normally write reviews but I felt compelled to let the world know about this place! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! It's in a really good central location about 10 minutes walk from the esplanade. The atmosphere is great and there are plenty of opportunities to socialise with other guests. The staff are amazing, they really make the place what it is. They're incredibly friendly and are always willing to share their experiences when it comes to booking activities. If you're looking for somewhere to stay that's chilled and sociable, look no further.

I spent two month on the East coast and I've seen a lot of different accommodations. This one is for me the best ! It is nice and clean, the manager knows the name of every client and is so friendly. The place is well organized and you don't have the feeling to be in those big hostels with 20 showers in one line. Here you have one shower somewhere, then another in another place. Same same with the kitchens. You feel so cozy in here. The atmosphere is really relaxing. And they can organize all your trips too. The Wifi is free and the fastest I ever seen in Australia.
Best place ever, thanks for this Oasis.
