Cairns hostel triumphs at tourism awards

TRAVELLERS Oasis, a much-loved and highly recommended backpackers’ haven nestled in the heart of Cairns, has been crowned with two prestigious accolades at the esteemed HOSCAR Awards.  

Clinching the titles of ‘Best Small Hostel in Oceania’ and ‘Most Popular Hostel in Cairns’, Travellers Oasis exemplifies excellence in the backpacking industry.

Local couple Gabe and Kathy Thallon channel over three decades of experience providing unparalleled hospitality and fostering a welcoming environment for adventurers from around the globe into Travellers Oasis, ensuring it maintains its reputation as a premier destination for backpackers to Far North Queensland.

The HOSCAR Awards, presented by Hostelworld, are the Oscars of the backpacking world, recognising outstanding achievements of hostels worldwide.  

The awards, based on 6.5 million bookings, looked at 36,000 properties in over 170 countries. Run by travel website Hostelworld, they recognise excellence in backpacker accommodation.  

In a competitive field, Travellers Oasis emerged triumphant, showcasing Cairns’ hospitality prowess on a global stage.

Hostel co-owner Gabe Thallon said the pair understand how important tourism is to Far North Queensland.

“Backpackers use Travellers Oasis as a base to embark on their exploration of our gorgeous part of the world,” he said.

“We strive to provide an experience for our guests, with friendly service, local knowledge, exceptionally clean facilities, comfy beds and chilled communal areas.”

Travellers Oasis co-owner Kathy Thallon said the duo were thrilled and honoured to receive the awards, which underscore their commitment to providing excellence to their guests.

“It is a testament to the dedication of our hardworking team and the unwavering support of our loyal guests,” she said.

“We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve as ambassadors for Cairns and look forward to continuing to exceed the expectations of travellers who choose to call Travellers Oasis their home away from home.”

Travellers Oasis invites backpackers and adventurers from near and far to experience its award-winning hospitality firsthand.
