Nice run hostel, only booked to stay 4 nights but ended up staying an extra two, the free wifi is a big bonus, plus their staff were all very helpful about anything, would stay again if in the area

super relaxed hostel out of the busy city but well connected by a free shuttle bus. Good evening activities and homely rooms :)


Nice vibe, very clean, good night sleep (no party place) Barbecue was amazing, good beds! The only thing i didnt liked was that the second night i was at 3 person room connected to another 3 person room. So the other room also just our door, was a lot more noise than the night before.


The best hostel I've ever stayed in! Great staff, atmosphere and overall excellent place. It's a 20 minute walk from the town center, but I didn't mind. There is a regular shuttle that runs hourly. If you're around on a Monday night, they put on an Aussie barbecue. I highly recommend Tropic Days!


This really is a place i will never forget! Bus to town! Best phrase ever go stay and you will see what i mean. Staff are awesome friendly and very helpful. If you want to meet some awesome travellers from all countries, have a bbq, drinks n a time to remember go here! Love you tropic days!!!

Great atmosphere; it was like staying in someone's house with friends rather than staying in a hostel. The only negative was the one shower and toilet on the top floor; would be good to have one more shower.


Awesome hostel, great staff and atmosphere, clean, safe...everything you can wish for. Located a 15-20 minute walk from the city center, which didn't bother me at all. Free bus from the hostel to city center and back, several times a day. Whatever you do, don't miss the Monday Aussie BBQ! The owner himself is the chef, and it is a genuine and great atmosphere. Staff is also really great when it comes to helping out with booking tours. Excellent recommendations! Would definitely stay here again!
