Really nice place to stay at mission beach. Not too much to do around the area but is a nice little town. Great place to do a sky dive. The free shuttle bus was excellent, especially as they guessed we were on a bus and were waiting for us at 9:30 when we arrived on greyhound. Really helpful staff that will happily answer questions. Relaxing feel about the place. Overall, great place to chill out and get away from big cities.


Loved my stay over here. Really liked being in the midst of a jungle enjoying good times with extremely nice and friendly people.


Staff pick you up and run you around to shops, bus stop etc. clean hostel, BYO, chilled out, no air con but not really an issue


very nice stay there near nowhere. free breakfast and pickup from bus stop. excellent place to relax and chill out. free wifi as well. bring tons of food if you dont want to waste your time to get back to the city with the free hostel shuttle service. i really liked the place. no shops or pubs around and that's what makes the esperience great! would have stayed longer if i had had more time.


Second best hostel on our trip after the coffs habour one. Enjoy the atmosphere and the spacious garden with the pool. The kitchen and dining area are perfectly fitted into the building and its nice to relax after some activies. The hostel is a bit of the track, but there is a free pick-up and drop-off service from/ to the bus station, supermarket and beach.


Really nice hostel middle in the rainforest. Good place for chill out there for a couple of days. It's like you're in somebodys house, I really enjoyed my staying here. There is always a shuttle bus going to town what makes it easy to go to the shop and beach:)


Nice hostel, the location isn't the best but a free shuttle bus goes to the town regularly. There were no plug sockets at all in our room which was odd. Plenty of bugs as it was in the middle of the rainforest but the overall feel to the place was nice and staff were friendly.


Very nice place!


Relaxing stay in the middle of the jungle! I planned to stay for one night. Ended up staying a whole week and really enjoyed it. Jackaroos has nice and clean rooms, a big community kitchen and best of all a very lovely backyard with a pool and comfortable hammocks. The hostel is situated in the middle of the rainforest. So you actually get to live in a very natural and relaxed environment. The staff is outstanding. Big thanks, especially to the owner!

The hostel was super clean and there was always someone cleaning and the staff were all really friendly and helpful. The facilities were great with an amazing pool, hammocks to lie in, an outdoor and indoor movie screen for Saturday night movies, a ping pong table and mountain bikes you could borrow to explore . The hostel is set in a clearing in the rainforest and was so peaceful. I just wish I could have stayed longer!!!


It was just awesome. Breakfast for free as much as you want and free WIFI. Bikes to rent and a beautiful lookout from the Pool. ;)
