||I stayed at Travellers Oasis from 1-4 February this year and have since been traversing the country down the east coast and up through the red centre. I just wanted to email and give praise to the staff at Travellers Oasis. Having stayed in very many hostels now I can safely say that you guys are by far the most helpful and welcoming hostel staff I have come across and I shall definately be recommending Travellers Oasis to friends. Keep up the good work and thank you for an excellent stay.

Missing you already, we feel no hostel will ever match up to Travellers' (apart from Tropic days!)
I have attached a photo to make you laugh, we went fishing today; I caught Colin the cod for tea and cooked it on the BBQ (which they don;t have at Nomads) and clare rescued a turtle!
Hope you are all well.

just wanted to say a big fat thankyou for what you do up there! had an awesome time staying at the hostel last week. in no particular order these were my favourite things about travellers oasis:
* free coffee and tea (and the finest powdered milk)
* the purple pool
* the frogs and vines painted on the dorm walls
* aloe vera for silly sunburnt people
* the beautiful curly writing on all the signs
* the awesome staff & their super service
* the high calibre of backpackers you guys seem to attract (takes one to know one... right?)
anyways i've stayed in hostels all over the world and there is definitely something special about yours. will spread the word for you down in brisvegas and definitely see you next time i'm in town..

||John, Kerrie and Helen are the best of the best. They make you feel like family. The place is beautiful and kept clean every single day. The best hostel I have ever been in and that speaks for 54 countries!!!! It's close to everything by a 15 min walk and it is in a very safe area. Just one block for the Central Shopping Center!! AWESOME!

||Hi John and Helen,
It?s been over 2 months since I got back home to Israel,
And almost 3 months since we met for less than a week,
But as I?m figuring it out now, I really didn?t say an honest ?Thank You?,
So here we go ? Thanks, you?ve been a great help with getting out of the shock I had landing in Australia,
You helped me all the way with great deals and just moral support traveling and being spontaneous and unplanned.
Thanks so much, I wish there was I way I could return the favor.
Know you have a friend in Israel

Just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for a lovely stay at Traveller's Oasis. The accommodations were fantastic as was the service. It's so nice to stay in a place where people remember your name, we were shocked! John - thanks for great recommendations for things to do and great places to eat! We also met with a woman (unfortunately I don't think we got her name) who made a great recommendation for an 'On the Wallaby' tour and we had a postively fantastic time.
Thanks again and we hope to be back in the future.

||Well, what can I say, Travellers Oasis is truly the most amazing hostel we have ever stayed in. The staff are the most friendly you will ever come across, they all go out of their way to help you with any questions or problems you may have. every body walks around with a smile from ear to ear which made us feel so welcome. We left a couple of days ago and are still talking about how much we would love to go back to Travllers Oasis. I would HIGHLY recommend staying in this hostel! Thanks for everything, we'll certainly be seeing you again soon!
Love Ciara & Alan ; )

sorry, that we didn't contact you directly after our Ayers Rock Trip to tell you how amazing it was! The third time your advice was perfect and we had a awesome trip to the outback. Many, many thanks to you.
Since 3 weeks we are now in Indonesia, having a good time here as well, and next week we will fly back home. We had a great time in australia, at the Travellers Oasis and specially at all places and trips you recommended to us. So we want to thank you one more time for your help, it was so comfortable and usefull for us to get your very good advices.
We will recommend you and Travellers to everybody going to australia! :)
Take care and enjoy life!

Matt here. Thanks for pointing me in the Yongala direction! :) Will never forget that experience. Everything from the crew, hostel and diving was excellent. I didn't get to dive on Monday as planned, 'cause there were only two booked so we postponed it to Tuesday but that was actually perfect for me 'cause I had some equalization problems before.. the dives were perfect, weather conditions was perfect with calm water and shining sun. We had some surface current but I thought that only made the dives more memorable with a little challenge before you got down to the actual wreck, though there were some OW who had some problems, nothing too bad though..
Cyclone Yasi had cleared the wreck of many corals so you could see the haul and everything which they said you couldn't before. All the fish had returned since the cyclone though, there's so much to see that I even wrenched my neck on my second dive :) If you've dived on the GBR chances are you've seen the same sorts that's on Yongala, but on Yongala they're that much bigger! It's like all fish is on steroids! New species I saw for first time was a Marble Ray (you see it on the picture I attached chilling top of the wreck, picture size was big so I only attached one) and QLD Groper that was bigger than me! No sharks though :(
Some things that could be nice to know if anyone else in interested in Yongala. If you get there the day before the dive it's a good idea to shop some dinner before arriving to Ayr, shops close early and when you get to the hostel there's no store around at all. They give you breakfast and BBQ lunch on the day you're diving. Also, right now they're looking for Divemaster Internships and the prereqs. were quite low, OW certification, 25 logged dives, 25 years or older, something like that.
Arrived to Airlie tonight and going out on the 3day sailing on Kiana on Friday, weather seems nice so hope it'll be good :) Hope everything is good up in Cairns! Give my best to John :)
Many thanks for helping me put my trip together, it's been exactly what I was hoping for and more! Much appreciated!
