Nice pool and excellent kitchen facilities. They met me at the greyhound stop which was nice. The staff were helpful enough and the pool is nice so overall a good place to chill and see mission beach
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...
The room was basic but clean and spacious. Clean bathrooms. Close to the beach. Great swimming pool.
Very nice staff, good facilities however kitchen and bathrooms were cleaned at very inconvenient times, both closed for an hour during the late morning. Bathrooms were unisex during this time and kitchen was unusable if you woke up late for breakfast. Good location, 5-10 minute walk from a gorgeous beach, bottle shop and Woolworth's within a few minutes walk.
Very friendly hostel with brilliant staff...They have lovely receptionists in Ben, Gemma, Peta and Little Sonny the Wallaby. They are very approachable and offer friendly advice on trips and places to see. Great location, free shuttle service to town and numerous walking trails. Very clean rooms, with comfortable beds. Also a massive kitchen, fully stocked with utensils. Great place to stay.

Great hostel- lovely big pool and lots of sunloungers. Staff really go out of their way to make sure you have something to do- I went to a tropical fruit tasting session, free cassowary spotting tour and movie night. Only drawback was that the doors don't automatically lock and no one in my dorm ever bothered to lock it when they left. Balcony door also broken so wouldn't lock. But, it's a small place and felt very safe anyway.
Chill hostel! Very clean! Good kitchen! Nice tv room! I was lucky with a good matras but not everyone is that lucky! Woolworths en beach is close! The hostel organizes trips. Very good!
Very quiet hostel in quiet town. No atmosphere. Staff were quite unhelpful
