Tropic Days was really clean and comfortable! I spent a few nights and really enjoyed the peaceful environment. It's a bit anti-social though, it was hard to find people to chat since you have your own unit. The staff were very friendly and helpful but they had no interest in having conversations with anyone besides their own click. The location was not too bad. It was about 20 mins of walk to the central station mall and 30 mins away from the main strip- a bit long walk after the bars close.


The hostel is great but the location is less than ideal. It is located a bit out of the main part of town (20 minute walk), but they provide a free shuttle that runs every 1-2 hrs. What you trade for location, you get peace and quiet, security, and helpful staff.


I think this hostel could be perfect if they changed a few little things. Some of the staff are noisy all the time and especially after they have been on a night out (if you are in room 9 you will be right next to them). Only one kitchen has full facilities in to make a meal, so it gets pretty busy during the evening. The beds are super comfy, the wifi is good and the free pool table is great. It's a fair bit out of the city but they have lots of shuttles in. I enjoyed my stay here.


Nice hostel! Very nice staff. There is a positive vibe and everyone is really friendly. I loved staying there! The rooms are very clean and also the toilets and showers! Thumbs up for that! Nice pool and chilling hammocks!

Loved to stay in this hostel. It is very clean and it is really nice to spend time in the garden in one of the hammocks. Even the location is a little bit outside a free shuttlebus is provided to town. The staff helped us a lot with the booking of tours. I can highly recommend to stay at Tropic Days.


Great hostel, staff are very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable! All the rooms and bathrooms were very clean and well equipped with storage boxes for valuables and plug sockets. Great atmosphere, very relaxed with hammocks and big outdoor area to sit in so as a solo traveler, it was great for meeting people . Monday BBQ night was great with great food and a good laugh. Bit further away from the main city but great for relaxing and booking tours. Would definitely stay again, had a great time :)


A little out of the way but a free shuttle into town is run all day long. The place itself is probably the most friendly hostel in Australia. It's slightly rustic feel gives it a large amount of charm and the atmosphere is so relaxed your worries and stresses seem to drift away on the breeze. A great base for a North Queensland adventure!
