Tropic Days Backpackers
Lonely Planet review
Tucked behind the Showgrounds (with a courtesy bus into town), Cairns’ best hostel is a haven of tropical gardens with hammocks, plus there’s a pool table, spice-stocked kitchen, bunk-free dorms and a chilled vibe. Doubles share spotless bathrooms. Even nonguests can book for Monday night’s croc, emu and roo barbecue ($12 including a didgeridoo show).
Our independent authors have visited Tropic Days Backpackers and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Cairns.
