The staff is so friendly, they do as much as they can to help you. The BBQ every Monday is just awesome, I had heaps of fun in there. That is not really cheap but it is... More

We were thrilled with Tropic Days - I can't recommend them highly enough! The staff was lovely, helpful, and present. We stayed on two separate occasions in two different rooms and felt comfortable and very pleased with both offerings. This is a well managed and cared for gem of a place.

Tropic days was amazing! It's a small hostel, a short ways from the main area but has free shuttles. Super clean, ABSOLUTELY AMAZING staff and great Monday night BBQ. The atmosphere is very chill with a common area with picnic tables that everyone hangs out at so its very easy to meet people. This is the only place I would... More

I'm very picky when it comes to accomodations, so i was a bit hesitant to staying at a hostel but this place was soooo cute, we could hang out all day by the pool and just relax. The people working there are sooo sweet. Would definately recommened tropic days to everyone!

Stayed here for two nights to dive the reef...It's a dirty backpacker's hostel. If you're cool with that, it's fine, it's got a big kitchen, free internet, and friendly folks. However, it's pay per hour A/C; the shower is located in the same room as the sink for the bathroom, so if someone is in the shower you can only... More

My partner and I have been backpacking through Australia for six weeks, and this is the last hostel we are staying in before flying to New Zealand. It is also the best place we have stayed in this beautiful country. It is the perfect size - not too big and therefore not crowded or impersonal, but not so small that... More
