Great rooms, a really sweet pool and great common areas! A good location not that far from the beach. The best thing is the amazing hospitality! They help you with everything! And you get a discount on everything too! A great place for backpackers!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Traveller's Oasis. Everything was just perfect! The kitchens were cleaned daily (even the windows!), the staff were super friendly and offered great advice. Everything was walkable from its location; the shopping centre with Coles is a 5mins walk and the lagoon on the sea front would take you about 15mins. My bedroom was fine...

I stayed here in November 2016 as the first stop on my 6-month travels through Australia and SE Asia. I would say this was the most sociable place I stayed in Australia. Staff is awesome and super helpful. Facilities are good and clean. Not a party hostel but great social atmosphere - I would definitely stay here again!

Very nice hostel. Clean and very friendly staff. Easy to meet other travelers. I stayed in a single and then a 3 person room. Never felt too crowed and each bed had its own safe.
