4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Our family of four stayed here for three nights in early December. The hostel is well kept, clean, and the staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. Mickey and Chelsea were great. We enjoyed the weekly BBQ and tried all kinds of meat - kangaroo, emu, croc etc. Our room was a good size and very comfortable. Have to pay for... More

I genuinely feel like every hostel everywhere should be forced to go here to see how a hostel is supposed to be run. This is just the very best of places to stay! Not really central but they run a lot of free shuttle buses which makes it extremely easy to move around. Taxi from town is about 10 AUS... More

They don't get much better than this. Great helpful staff, tasty BBQ, really nice atmosphere, cosey hammocks, homely rooms... The list could go on. It is a bit further from town but it's close to supermarket and good exercise - there is also the option of a free shuttle bus.

Me and my girlfriend went up to Cairns for a few days so I could do my skydive and see a bit of cairns before heading back to Airlie beach and decided to stay at Tropic Days as people we had met raved about it so much. Upon arrival it was a great little hostel, the staff were welcoming and... More

This is the only place I've stayed in Cairns and I felt great. Although its location is a little bit far away from downtown, but they have shuttle bus to drive you to town 9 times a day, for free, of course. And you'll hard to miss it because the drive will call "Bus to town!" every time before they... More

Definitely the best hostel to stay at in cairns. The best staff for organising your stay and anything you want to try in cairns. The best is the bbq night where you get to sample croc emu and kangaroo aswell as play the didgerdoo :)

Carrie and the team are so pleasant and have ton of recommendations about the area. The staff take turns driving the hostel shuttle that takes you to and from the city. There's plenty to keep you occupied in town and at the hostel. The BBQ and pizza nights are worth the cost and allows you to meet other travelers from... More

We stayed at Tropic Days for 4nights and loved it! Shared 3 bed dorm for 3, then a private double room for 1 night - both were fantastic. The staff are amazing (Marco and Chelsea especially), friendly, helpful and always wanting to help. The rooms are clean and have a good size. There is a great social side, loads of... More

Tropic days was the first hostel in our East Coast trip. The staff were warm, welcoming and always happy to help. The room was spacious with air-conditioning for $1 for 3 hours (which was a little loud). Bed had a safe underneath which was good for security best we've seen since. The hostel was a little way from the lagoon... More

We stayed one night at their sister hostel, Traveller's Oasis and one night here. Both are run exceptionally well. Free coffee and tea (self serve) Exceptionally clean Very chilled out. Loads of room to relax either in or around the pool or in a hammock Highly communicative staff Free luggage storage Free shuttle between hostels A bit further from downtown... More
