Very nice hostel. Big kitchen, with lots of hobs. Good bathrooms, lots of showers. Nice tv room with comfy sofa. Nice outside area. Close to supermarket and beach. Only bad thing was thin bed linen, if you wanted a blanket you were required to leave passport as security. Quite cheeky. Would definitely recommend.

Hi Ian - Thank you for your feedback. Due to the "tropical" climate we use blankets on the beds for only 6 weeks every year on those cooler nights. As the usual temperature is 20 - 35 degree Celsius, for most of the year, a top sheet is all that's required. The ID deposit is actually so we make sure the FREE TOWEL & BLANKETS are returned to reception so the odd "Cheeky" guest doesn't make off with it. Safe Travels.

Me and a friend came here for two nights, and really enjoyed it. Definitely one of the cleanest hostels i've ever been to, and the staff were all so friendly. They offer free rides into parts of the town, and we were even offered a lift to the bus station as it was raining!

A very friendly place to stay. The staff are very helpful and welcoming. The hostel is nicely located near the greyhound busstop and a short walk to the beach and the supermarket. Kitchen is clean and well equipped. The room was very spacious. I really enjoyed my stay here.

I just stayed one night in the absolute backpackers but it was amazing and probably one of the best hostels I've ever been to in Australia. The stuff was so friendly and gave me some tips for activities in the area like the little rainforest walk. there's a lovely atmosphere in the hostel and even though i just stayed there for one night, i felt really comfortable and good. They have activities like trivias or bbqs nearly every evening. i can definitely recommend this hostel!

Really nice hostel, one of the best I've stayed in. I liked the layout and the seating areas outside, staff were friendly and helpful, and all areas were clean and spotless. Rooms were nice and spacious, only annoying thing was having to go downstairs to use the bathroom facilities. Great location if you're sky diving or if you're just wanting to go to the beach!

Thanks for your great feedback Danielle - much appreciated! WE deliberately designed the hostel so the social and noise aspects of all guest activities remain downstairs so that you have a brilliant and undisturbed sleep upstairs. Guests always rave about how well they sleep. Safe Travels.

Perfekt hostel for 1-2 nights. Close to the beach, skydive place and bus stop. Clean and friendly staff!

This hostel was one of the nicest along the east coast. You have loads of space in the kitchen and a nice garden. The only downside was that our doubleroom could be opened with any key and we didn't have any lockers inside. But as Mission Beach is so small you don't really worry about that. They have free tours and walks to spot wildlife every day. It was just great!

Nothing too special. There was aircon in the room which was a bonus. I didn't particularly like where the bathroom facilities were located (on a different floor) but they were clean which is important. Good kitchen facility. Location is close to liquor store and grocery store. Mission beach is very small. Be prepared to walk fir you want to see something worth while.

Hi Julia - Unfortunately the weather was a bit ordinary during your stay and we can tell you that Mission Beach is a brilliant place with lots to do; including Skydiving, Rafting, Great Barrier Reef, Rainforest Trails, Aboriginal Cultural experiences, Dunk Island and more! You obviously missed the FREE BUSES that take you to all areas of Mission Beach which stretches 14km, BUT that's ok and we wish you all the best on your travels.

By far my favourite hostel. We arrived to be greeted by a very helpful friendly lady even letting us take our bags up to our rooms first and getting settled before making any payments. The hostel was super clean and the rooms and bright and spacious. I'd definitely recommend this hostel if you were planning on doing a skydive as the centre is just around the corner. The beach and woolworths are a few minutes walk away!

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.
