We stayed in a double room which was nice and clean. There are several toilets and shower rooms all seemed clean and well kept. There are two main kitchens which are fairly small but clean and well equipped. They were never busy either so size wasn't really and issue. Plenty of areas to sit and relax and a pool too.... More

Had a lovely time! Staff is lovely and friendly. Rooms are clean. They make your bed, you even get a towel. There's a pool, 2 kitchens, enough toilets/showers, 2 chilling area's, a BBQ and a tour office. Loved the BBQ night on monday! The hostel is not in the centre of cairns but they run shuttle buses to town.

This place is everything you are looking for in a packpacker (or at least all I look for): friendly and helpful staff, extremely clean, with great free wifi and free tea/coffee/bread. The outdoor area is beautiful and the perfect place to relax. Unwind on one of the many hammocks, bean bags or lounges chairs. I hesitated to book a bed... More

Feels like two old queenslander homes joined together with a spacious yard, bbq and pool area. We had a twin room with double bed and single bed and a tv and mini fridge. A little bit amongst the suburbs but still accessible if you have a car.

Hi!! Thank you for your review, hope you enjoyed your twin room with TV and fridge. Being a little away from the city we hope you enjoyed our spacious gardens with hammocks and pool area. For those guests who don't have a car we hope the free shuttle bus compensates for this. Yes we are two authentic Queenslander buildings but... More

Just like their sister hostel Travellers Oasis, Tropic Days shares the same friendly and knowledgable staff who go the extra mile. They helped organize my airport shuttle and skydive. I stayed in the deluxe queen room and it was like a hotel! Shared kitchen and bathroom with one other room, it felt like you had plenty of privacy; although that... More

I'm staying at the sister hotel Travellers Oasis but on a Monday night they get the hostels together and have a barby at Tropic days. We went this Monday and I was so impressed. As soon as you walked into the hostel you could feel a calm atmosphere, it was very chilled. Even better than trying all the different meats... More

Tropic Days was by far the best hostel we stayed in during our East Coast travels. It was super clean, the beds were comfy and it had a very homey feel. There were lots of complimentary shuttle runs from the hostel into town which is ideal as it is a little outside of the town. I highly recommend staying in... More

Tropic Days hosts an authentic Aussie BBQ every Monday night and I was lucky enough to go to one! The food was amazing! Emu, croc, kanga, they even did vege patties for the vegos! It's an all-you-can-stuff-your-face-with buffet that literally fills you to the brim! The host was funny, sincere and really well preserved for his age! There are heaps... More

Such a nice clean friendly hostel, with attentive staff! Nothing was too much trouble. Such a homely feel and the shuttle bus to town made visiting the centre so easy. Would recommend it to anyone staying in cairns for any amount of time. I ended up staying a month! Thanks tropic days!
