Lovely hostel, friendly staff, nice rooms, clean facilities, good location, lovely pool :) would prefer lockers in room with your own padlock, but they do have lockers for hire.

Hi Nienke - Thank you for your feedback. Although, your room was only 8 walking steps from the lockers (so very convenient) we quite often take for granted how safe and secure the hostel is....we have on-site Managers and breed a haven of cleanliness, happiness and friendly fun for all of our guests - rarely do we have problems with security and more likely for a guest to leave a full wallet on the table which has been handed into reception $$$ intact! Safe Travels.

Best hostel I've stayed at. All because of the staff, so great, friendly, helpful and love to have a good time. Drank with them at the local bar as well. Facilities were clean and kitchen was great. Very close to the bus stop which is a bonus. If you are stayi in mission beach, you MUST stay at absolute!

Fantastic hostel. Kitchen an bathroom so so clean. Tv room very homely and comfortably. Staff very helpful, friendly and welcoming. Free susage sizzle bbq on sundays, buses to town and various different walks. Activities in the hostel make it easy to meet an mix with others. Other hostels just aren't comparing to absolute.

I really liked this hostel - everything had been thought out - nice pool, good big kitchen area, pick-up's (on foot) from the bus stn so you didn't get lost. Only improvements would be lockers and more power points in the rooms - otherwise great.

Hi Melissa, Thank you for your feedback. We actually have a dedicated locker room close to your room and which was revealed on check in. There are 4 power circuits in your 6 share room and will look at putting more in for future reference. Safe Travels.

A great hostel with mostly friendly staff! They ran a free shuttle survive to North Mission beach which was great. Dropped you off and picked you up at walking tracks! Events in the eve and the staff were constantly cleaning which was ace! All in all a great place to stay :)

The hostel was very clean and nicely done up, the kitchen space was huge so even at peak times cooking was easy. The tv room was a nice touch, there was free wifi and the pool was perfect! However it's the extra mile the staff go that really make this hostel great, they organise tours round the area hunting out wallabies and cassowaries and the free bus to the beach that make this one worth more than the rest!

Absolute is THE hostel to stay in at Mission Beach. So far in my travels around Oz it is the best hostel I have stayed in, bar none. On arrival the staff were so friendly it was like seeing old friends. The rooms were cleaner than a hospital and had air conditioning which, as we all know, is a blessed relief. The kitchen and bathrooms, are the cleanest I have ever seen, anywhere! Everyday they have walks, and every night there is something to do, but if not you can just chillout! Perfect

A nice place to stay, close to some shops, a supermarket (Woolworths) and the beach, where the skydiving centre is! The actual hostel is nice with good kitchen facilities and a nice bathroom and rooms. The staff are very friendly too!

Really good, only a few points that I'd have to criticize: - There's a quota on the WiFi (200MB), if you want more, you have to pay AND it is not encrypted, so think twice before sending sensitive data - The bunk bed is completely closed at top and bottom end. I'm 2 meters tall and normally I can stick my feet out through the bed's frame. Not here...

Hi Rafael - Thank you for your feedback although we would have to say we are disappointed with your comments regarding the FREE GIFT Internet you receive on arrival where as in the past this was not available. Furthermore, ALL GUESTS are encouraged after they have checked in to please see Reception if they need anything at all...we actually do have bunks that are available for you to stick your legs through if you wish; most of our guests enjoy the newer bunks as they afford more privacy.

The room was basic but clean and spacious. Clean bathrooms. Close to the beach. Great swimming pool.
