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

I was camping there with my own tent. Nice even place with a cloth thingy for the shadow all over it. Palms and flowers were everywhere and it has nice big pool. There are not too many people, the atmosphere is totally chillied out!! A lot of communal food and free coffee and tea, even milk powder. And the best:... More

I stayed in Tropic Days with a friend whilst we were doing a diving course in Cairns. Location is pretty perfect, it's just off the edge of the centre, but it's a 15min walk to Cairns Central if that. The rooms were a good size and there was air con, enough plugs, and comfy beds with light duvets. Kitchens were... More

Stayed here one night only. Was big BBQ on night we stayed, garden full of tables and ful of people but we couldn't get a seat which was a shame. Staff are nice, young crowd. Dorm room average, stayed in 3 bed. Arranged transfer to airport which was easy.

Stayed here for four nights over New Year. All the staff were very friendly, especially Marco on the front desk who was super helpful in helping get us onto some busy trips and with ideas of what to do with our free time. The bus into town is a really nice touch. The room where nice and clean with plenty... More
