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...

Really enjoyed my stay here. Staff were friendly, clean rooms, nice surroundings. Not too quiet but not a part hostel either. It is a little set back from the centre of Cairns but there is a frequent shuttle bus and I didn't think the walk was too bad.

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
