Originally booked in for 2 nights but stayed the full week! lovely environment.. The rooms were spacious, clean and nicely decorated and the gardens were beautiful! Nice relaxing environment outside where you could chill out and have a drink.. It did sometimes get a bit noisy at night but we were directly above the drinking area, we moved rooms later... More

We camped in the garden for 2 nights. It is absolutely safe and you will have a good sleep although you are in a tent in a hostel. The staff is very friendly and will help you with everything you want to organize for your trip. The only thing is that the kitchen closes at 9pm and they are very... More

Wasn't a fan of the hostels on the esplanade as they were all party hostels, so thought we'd try somewhere a little bit further out. Tropic Days is a great hostel that was so much more relaxed and a great place to meet people. I always recommend this place if I have friends heading to Cairns.

It was the best hostel I have ever stayed in, it was like a house. Everybody was so friendly, we were originally going to stay only 2 nights but ended up staying a week and a half. The hostel was very tidy and clean and was a pleasure to stay in. The location is not even an issue, the free... More

We just finished our stay in Cairns at Tropic Days. We camped in the backyard for 6 nights and everything was great. Kitchen, tv room, toilets, showers and backyard are very clean. We really liked the backyard common area where you can meet and talk to fellow travellers which makes it a social hostel without the party vibe. Very chill... More

Hostel was well maintained, clean and the outside was tropical and charming. Staff (Marco especially) were very warm, friendly and helpful with everything including our reef visit planning. Would recommend staying here.

We have stayed at this hostel for nearly a week and loved every day. It is in a great setting with a pool, gardens, hammocks and a large outdoor communal area. However it is the staff that really make this hostel. They have all been fantastic in making our stay as enjoyable as possible. The hostel is impeccably clean and... More

Stayed here during my visit to Cairns. First night in a room and the rest in a tent. Although I had to put up my tent on the other side of the street, It was very comfortable because I could enjoy all the hostels facilities which include several convenient kitchens, lounges (with free WiFi) and the best garden in town...
