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

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...

I didn’t stayed here, but the 1 nigth I stayed here I forgot, after checkout, my flight bag. Five days later I emailed them and ask them if they had found my flight back and if it was possible to keep my flight bag till I was coming back 1 month later. This wasn’t a problem. One month became 3...

The hostel and its staff are amazing. Staff are very friendly and helpful especially if you want advice on trips and tours. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Provided with clean bedding and towels, a safe and more than enough power outlets. The BBQ and pizza nights are good value for money, well organised and a nice chance to...

Our room had a double bed and a single, tv, fridge, wifi, fan, optional aircon for $3.The beds were clean and very comfy. Kitchen doesn't open...

Very good family hostel. I really enjoyed my time here and would definitely come back again!! Friendly staff, well equiped kitchen, clean rooms and bathrooms, nice pool, good wifi, etc... Kitchen can sometimes get a bit crowded, especially when the campsite is fully booked. But overall, this was by far the best hostel I stayed at in Australia !!

I can't say enough about my stay here. First, the staff are very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. They're also dedicated to making Tropic Days a great place. I always saw a staff member maintaining the facility or helping a guest. The hostel itself has a wonderful atmosphere. I believe it's a combination of the staff and guests that contribute to...
