Tropic Days is the hostel that's got it all. It's located perfectly down a quiet street which is perfect for relaxation, but close enough to the city to be accessible. The staff and management are friendly, welcoming and go above and beyond to ensure you have the best stay possible. The hostel is spotless and is well stocked with cooking...

The hostel is very homely and has a lovely atmosphere. It felt like I was living in a big house rather than a hostel. The kitchen facilities were good, the WIFI was free and available all over the hostel, the outside seating area was good too, very sociable. The rooms were very clean, the staff were lovely and helped us...

Very clean, very nice staff, a free shuttle to the towns center, helpful desk for planning and booking stuff, very nice roofed common area. Hammocks and a pool! Several kitchens. In general quite relaxed, if you want a party hostel, this is not for you. If you want a calm place to stay, not too far away from the city...

Tropic Days is one of the best hostels I have been to. The place has such a nice atmosphere. I was only suppose to stay here for 4 days and ended up staying for 2 weeks. The staff is really friendly and helpfull! They try to make it really personal by remembering everybody's name... not an easy job with all...

Every now and again you come across a really cool and quirky hostel that stands out from the rest and this was one of them! Whilst Tropic Days is situated slightly out of the centre of Cairns, you can walk there in about 20 minutes. Besides, the hostel offers fairly frequent shuttle buses to/ from the city for free. The...

A lovely hostel with a nice atmosphere, the lady on reception (didn't get her name though) was so helpful and friendly at check in, getting tours etc.The wifi was great too. The safes and outlets for every person were also good. The only downside to this place is it is a 20 minute walk to Coles and about a 30...

Well set up, clean and relax atmosphere. The whole house/complex felt like traditional wooden house. The guests were young and respectable. Not in the city center but there is a shuttle to and from town. Or you can walk it in 30 minutes. Good place to stay.

I stayed here about 11 years ago and went back just now since I had such a great experience last time. I have not found any other place quite like it, it has gotten even better. The gardens are even more lush than before, and the friendliness and service is second to none. A very relaxed and easy going atmosphere,...

It's a lovely, relaxing hostel to chill out and enjoy the true spirit of Australia. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, especially the girl at the reception whose name I don't remember. As a family of four we stayed in a four bed room and we shared all the facilities with the other guests, mainly young people from all...

Everything is good! Nice place, friendly people and staff. Bedrooms are clean and cheap for that kind of hostel. Hopefully I'll come back soon. Awesome BBQ party on Monday, you can eat crocodile, kangaroo and emu. There is swimming pool, a free pool available as well.
