This hostel is the same as Travellers Oasis. It small, cozy and friendly. The people are social. There is a nice meeting area outside with a clean pool and hammocks. The staff is nice and helpful. I stayed in a dorm. The dorm is pretty big and under every bed is a locker. There is also a ceiling fan in... More

Quiet location - not massively sociable compared to other hostels I've been to - it's really a place for people who don't want to party every night but this is what we wanted Nice big rooms with a fridge, tv and air con which was $1 for 3 hours. Always easy to get a good nights sleep, staff and guests... More

I started my trip to downunder in Cairns in the Tropic Days - good choice! One of the best hostels on the trip, nice rooms, equipped kitchen, free wi-fi, shuttle service... It takes about 20 minutes to go to the lagoon/city center if you walk, but there are some shuttle services offered at fixed time. The service at the reception... More

This is such a refreshing and colourful place. the rooms are comfortable and well laid out. Lovely and clean hostel. The staff are great and super friendly. The bus shuttle to and from the centre is a real bonus. I can only recommend this place. No complications!

Tropic Days had everything you could want. The staff are friendly, the place is clean, the kitchen is almost fully stocked with some free food even. There's pretty good free wifi and they give you a towel as well (which is very nice!) Personally, I think they should have sheets on the bed instead of big blankets because it's so... More

Tropic Days has been the first hostel we have actually felt welcome in after travelling around for 3 weeks and made more firends in two days. My husband and I are recently married therefore wanted some privacy yet were able to sit out and meet everyone around the hostel when we wanted to. We had a private room with a... More

I stayed for a week and thought the staff were lovely. Kerry was extremely helpful and always very polite and friendly. The boys that drive the shuttle are sweeties. It's quite a way from town which I like as it's quiet and relaxing. I found the facilities clean and the kitchen easy to cook in. The one thing I will... More

Tropic Days is a quaint little hostel tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre. There are hammocks for lazing in and a pool for lounging by, but unfortunately relaxed vibes weren't the only thing permeating through the hostel during my stay. The shared shower stunk of pee and the air in my dorm room had a... More
