    The best hostel I’ve ever stayed at - no contest. The place is immaculate and has a very social atmosphere. I spent many hours peacefully reading in a garden hammock, or in the pool. The staff and owners are very friendly and fun too! The location isn’t superb, as it’s a 15 minute walk to the nearest shop - however there are regular free shuttle buses and free bikes so no problem! A social hostel rather than a party hostel. Make sure to catch the Monday night BBQ! Air con is $1 for 3 hours.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Tropic Days. From arriving to a welcome smile at the front counter to realising the people around you have so much to share about their lives. Kath, Gabe & the team were wonderful in making sure I was as comfortable as possible. Being an Aussie travelling alone I was worried I'd feel outlasted by the overseas backpackers, absolutely wasn't an issue at all. The relaxed friendly atmosphere is one that truly makes you feel at home, thanks for having me x

    This hostel is definitely one of the best I've been to in Australia. It is the most cosy and warm place you'll find in Cairns. Staff more than friendly. We had an issue with a package, even though we left they kept it for a month and stayed in contact with us to help us out until the problem was solved. It is a bit more far than the others hostel from centre but honestly not a problem at all, a shuttle is running regularly and you can also rent bikes for free. Would hundred pourcent recommend.

    Unfortunately I only got to stay here on my last night in Cairns, but I really liked this hostel. The set-up is a bit weird, because it seems to be an old house. The hostel is relatively small, but sociable and quiet. The hostel is also very clean.
