2nd to None!
Absolutely Loved staying at Tropic Days!! 2 years traveling Australia and have never come across another backpackers like it! By far the cleanest, friendliest, safest, most accommodating place you could wish to be residing at!! town isn't far away AT ALL! a very enjoyable 10 min walk or free buses run numerous times throughout the day! they accommodate for all ages, and tailor their approach to your wants and needs!! Hats off to Cathy and Gabe. Best hostel i've ever come across!!
Gabe and Kathy have outdone themselves with Tropic Days. They provide an excellent service to the public! From the moment we walked in the door to check in it was laughter and it continued until we left.
Hated this place. The staff acted like you owed them something for staying at a rated hostel that everyone loves. Good points --clean (although our linen was never changed whole time we were there), excellent kitchen and facilities. Bad points -- miles away from anywhere. It's a good walk into town, which you would not want to do on your own at night (no buses go back to hostel after woolshed bus). buses run every few hours which means waiting around. staff are so busy to really care, internet and office are closed from 12 till 4 and 8 onwards, which is frustrating when you are staying in, and so far from anywhere. Also always busy, so had to wait to chat to them. Aircon in rooms is noisy and $1 per three hours. Felt so much hotter here than being on the esplanade, that it was unbearable without aircon. I have stayed in many hostels now, and this was by far the worst experience i have had. we ended up staying in a room that cost $10 more a night, had our own bathroom and was on the esplanade, and it was a millions times better. so much nicer than being stuck in the middle of nowhere.
Stay here if you enjoy passive smoking, being treated like you owe them a favour for letting you staying there, penny pinching, a campsite that makes accommodation in Rio's outskirts seem attractive, or walking five kilometers per night. On the plus side there were no backpackers stealing from each other -- instead that job was ably performed by others jumping over the fence and picking dorm locks with a screwdriver. I like hostels with a relaxed atmosphere to noise -- makes everyone a bit more relaxed. But Tropic Days manages to achieve something special -- a lot of noise and a wound up stick-up-bum approach to it. Admittedly this isnt helped by the indigenous australian community who live next door, but an encounter with multicultural australia maybe one of the highlights of your visit. A bit of aggro on the street as you try to get back into this wonderful hostel will save you having to do a self-guided after-dark Alice Springs tour.
We stayed in this hostel in May 2006. Good atmosphere, very friendly, clean hostel. Only one down side, it's slightly off the beaten track so can be a bit of a long walk back from the pub late at night. They operate a free mini bus shuttle to/from the centre till mid-evening.
Really friendly hostel; staff make an effort and it has a real homely feel to it. Perfect if you've just arrived in Oz and want somewhere pretty chilled. No bar though :(
The best hostel i have ever had the pleasure of staying at in the whole world. The atmosphere is brilliant as to are all the staff that run Tropic Days. The cleanest and best hostel going.I only wish I could spend the rest of my days there chilling in the hammock!
I enjoyed my stay here at Tropic Days. The hostel is very clean and spacious offering plenty of kitchens, bathrooms and communal areas. It is based out of town so you are reliant on the free buses in to town. The hostel is a great place to relax especially if like me you are doing a dive course whilst your there.The only downside I found was on my day of leaving the staff had a bit of a u-turn in their attitude, they were very friendly but suddenly seemed very keen on getting us out of our room, even before the checking out time. One member of staff stormed in to my double room to "check" we were packing up, we were left a bit stunned as we were in the middle of getting dressed and we were offered no apology. We also found the lady on reception a bit petty- she would not let us use the phone to call a local taxi firm and we had no change. Surely the place isn't that hard up that you can't make a quick call, most places we stayed at were quite relaxed in this respect. I'm sure we just caught the staff on a bad day- perhaps there was pressure from the stern Irish lady in charge to get the place sorted. Having said that the cleanliness of the place was appreciated.
