Its not a hostel - its hotel! Amazing staff. There is always 2 workers who cleans. The rooms are huge and there is a lot of space. Kitchen is very clean and equipped very well. By booking to rafting and skydiving I have got free night, a present, free wifi. There was a free tour for watching wallabies and cassawory, free BBQ at saturday. And it is located 100 meters from the greyhound station. The wifi is a little bit expensive.
Really enjoyed my stay, the hostel was so clean, the staff cleaned the hostel throughout the day to ensure it was kept clean. The hostel offered a bus to the town and various other paces. It also picks you up from the greyhound bus stop even though its only a 200 m walk. I really enjoyed my stay I was there to relax and this hostel is the best place to do that.

Not much to write home about, not a very social/friendly hostel, everyone sticks in their own groups. The staff weren't that knowledgeable about tours and other destinations in Oz. We didn't like the fact that all the showers were downstairs, felt like being in a swimming pool changing room. The pool was nice but not enough sunbeds which was a little annoying. Overall, it was ok but I wouldn't stay there again.
Great chillax hostel, stuff going on all the time. Good pool and close to woolworths/beach. Staff are brilliant too, giving good advice on tours making it one of the best hostels stayed at.
Absolute backpackers has to be one of the best hostels i have stayed in on the east coast! The hostel is so clean, the staff seem to be cleaning constantly which is great! The staff are so friendly, Peta, Ben and Gemma on reception go out of their way to help! There is a free bus to town and also a free BBQ on saturdays...perfect! 2 mins walk to the amazing beach! I definitely recommend staying at this hostel! Like there slogan says...It really is like a resort disguised as a hostel! Fab place!

This was an amazing hostel, we wish we would have stayed longer. The staff was so friendly and informative, and everything was spotless. It's a little far from Mission Beach proper, but they run a shuttle everyday, so it's no problem. Very chill, very comfortable.
if you´re looking for a cheap, nice and cleann accomodation, this is the right place!
I really enjoyed my stay at absolute backpackers. I´ve never seen such a nice hostel like this. The team is great and very helpful, it feels like a big family over there. Everything is clean. I will come back :-) only bad thing are the internet prices, but that´s fine compares to the rest :-)
wonderful and superclean hostel in a great setting!
