This is a small hostel with standard facilities and a small pool. The staff is excellent. Very friendly and helpful.

I spent a year traveling Australia and even though I lived in several places Tropic days will always feel the most like home! The people (staff as well as travelers) quickly become life long friends! You'll never stay at a hostel with better staff or owners... I have and always will stay there's every time I visit Oz!
