We have stayed in Tropic Days couple of times and it really is one of the best hostels ever. It is super clean, the kitchen has got good facilities, there is nice pool and hammocks hanging in the garden, just peaceful place to stay. We have slept in a tent, good budget option for backpackers with or without own tent... More

I stayed in this hostel while having my diving course and I have to say this hostel is far beyond my expectation! The room was clean and the staff were really friendly. They got free shuttle bus to city so it was actually quite convenient to stay in this place. The BBQ on Monday was absolutely fun because the owner... More

Can't believe it's taken me this long to write this review. The last stop on our trip and we saved the best hostel til last. Every little detail was perfect and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place or staff. Make sure to book your stay around the legendary barbecue, that was an experience on the same scale as... More

This hostel might not be the cheapest one, but there is value for money ! The rooms are cleaned every day, and they are not too big. The swimming pool, the hammock and the barbecue make this already relaxing place even better. There is a free shuttle to drive you to the city-center. Good wifi, and even if there is... More

Either you can chill in the garden in a hammock or next to the pool, either you can enjoy the city via hourly bus service offered by the hostel. In any ways you will make friends there for sure as everybody seem to come from the magic land where every backbacker had a good story to share and best intentions.... More

Loved this hostel!! Tropic days and its sister Traveller Oasis are the best hostels I've stayed in. Kerri and all the staff are so friendly and welcoming. The hostel is beautiful too. The gardens are stunning and really well maintained so you can relax in the hammocks or on the lawns or swim in the pool. Great atmosphere with excellent... More

Tropic Days is a lovely place in Cairns. The place is clean, the staff is very friendly, the wifi works great, a lovely and clean pool. There are hammocks all over the place, so it is very relaxing. Although it is not very close to the city center, the free shuttle bus solves the problem. We stayed in a double... More

I have stayed here for 7 nights whilst my boyfriend was out at sea completing his PADI course and I am so glad I was here! It's such a homely little hostel with lots of great guests who I could hang out with. Everyone is very friendly and facilities they offer are both very clean and well maintained. Free bus... More
