Tropic Days Backpackers
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

This hostel is great! The staff is wonderful and facilities are great! The only negative thing is that it is about a 25-30 min walk to the city center, but they do provide a shuttle van at certain times. I would absolutely stay here again! Book you tours from the tour desk! They are exceptional and can give you discounts!

Had a great time at Tropic Days. The staff could not have been more helpful. They really couldn't do enough for us. We loved pizza and beer night! The shuttle bus to the center of Cairns was great as well. It is a great hostel with a really friendly and laid back atmosphere. We didn't really want to leave!

I absolutely loved this backpackers! Best backpackers I've ever stayed at and I've stayed all over Australia, Asia parts of Europe and New Zealand! Fantastic owners! So friendly and giving and the staff that work there always go the extra mile to help you out and make you feel welcome. Everyone is so happy to work there and this reflects on the quality of the customer service and care to each and every individual that stays there. I made alot of friends here and i didn't want to leave. It was close enough to the town center and their free bus shuttle made it very accessible. The perfect place to chill out and relax by their pool and beautiful tropical gardens. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are amazing and NO BUNK BEDS!! There was a maximum of 4 people in a room, fantastic!

My partner and I stayed here for a week and it was absolutely brilliant.

The two receptionists, Kerri and Marco, were always friendly, polite and helpful. All the other staff were very friendly and chatty.

The only negative thing about this hostel was the location. It's a good 20 min walk from town and when you're laden with shopping bags it isn't fun. They do run a shuttle bus, but we found it wasn't frequent enough.

This hostel is absolutely SPOTLESS, you could eat your dinner off the floor! It's very quiet and chilled, amazing atmosphere, free wifi, free tea...I'd be here for hours if I kept going. This place is absolutely amazing!!

We will be staying at their sister hostel the next few days as it's closer to town.

Thank you for having us, it was an absolute pleasuring staying at Tropic Days.

This was one of the best hostels we stayed in on our round the world trip, all the facilities are as you would expect but the big difference were the kind and helpful attitude of all the staff who work there

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 days in a private double room.

The lady who checked us in was extremely helpful and friendly which really made us feel welcome. We later booked a diving trip through her which was made easy. We also needed to print some travel documents and she kindly gave us her email address so she could print them off for us for no cost. Great service!

Our room was lovely with its own fridge which was handy! The room was very clean which was a change from some hostels we have stayed in!

The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need, and again kept clean. Free tea and coffee which was a nice touch!

The outside area was really nice and relaxing, such a nice hostel, and I think it is a good thing to be out of Cairns centre as it was quiet and tranquil. The regular free shuttle bus was excellent, and worked out well for us and what we had planned.

If you are planning a trip to Cairns you should definitely stay here!

Myself and a friend have been staying here for 10 days, it is by far one of the nicest and friendliest hostels we have stayed in on the east coast. Great clean facility's and the perfect place to end our east coast trip. Amazing BBQ night and pizza night where you can meet a lot of people, perfect if your traveling by yourself. Couldn't ask for better staff. Don't let the distance from cairns Central put you off it's a easy walk or a free shuttle bus, which is extremely helpful. Would recommend it to any traveller who is looking for a chilled friendly place to stay.
