Tropic Days is my home in Cairns! I found the hostel by chance and I am so glad I did. I was fortunate enough to stay there for one month, after initially booking in for 3 nights, as a guest and then had the pleasure to take on a job for even longer. That's how much I loved it! Never wanted to leave and wanted to be a part of the place I loved!
Tropic Days is by far the cleanest hostel I have ever been to! The kitchens, bedroom, toilets, even the rubbish bins are squeaky clean! I was so amazed when I got there and the bedrooms are awesome as well. No bunks! Absolutely love that! The staff there is amazing too. I was so impressed when everyone knew my name. Doesn't happen a lot when you travel. And the owners, Kathy and Gabe, are so friendly and outgoing they go to extra lengths to make sure you enjoy your stay, not just at Tropic Days or Cairns, but the whole of Australia! The best people by far to give you a big warm Aussie welcome and sort you out with trips and give you tips on what to see and do in the rest of Oz.
My favorite part about Tropic Days was the Aussie BBQ!!! It is a must for everyone. Emu, crocodile, barramundi (awesome fish), kangaroo...the works! It's such a good feed and such an awesome time meeting fellow travellers. You'll have such a good laugh and there's a didgeridoo competition at the end of it. Gabe is amazing at blowing the didgeridoo. Learned a few tips from him on how to blow one and it's not as easy as it looks! Now I am an expert blower. Woohoo!
If you get to Cairns, Tropic Days is a must! I love it and can't wait to go back!!! You'll have a blast staying here. Everyone is family. :)
Thanks for everything Kathy and Gabe, and the rest of the staff. Y'all are amazing!
