Very small hostel, a good stop to chill on your way up/down the coast. Few minutes walk from the beach.
One of the next hostels we have stayed at.. Very easy from the greyhound. Shuttle bus will pick you up and drop you back.. Also free ride to the supermarket.. Luke at reception was so welcoming and arranged for a few of us to go and have dinner.. $5 and was great food.. We even extended and stayed another night.. Clean and tidy would defiantly stay again 👍
It you want a relaxing holiday on a beautiful beach then this is the hostel for you! The staff were amazing and extremely helpful. The location is spot on, a small supermarket and atm around the corner, as well as some easy going bars with cheap beer. The main highlight was being a 10second walk from the huge deserted beach! Will definitely come back to this hostel and recommend it to any one looking for a quiet beach retreat!
Fantastic place to stay, felt really at home. Friendly staff, very helpful. Large communal area to relax make friends, plus great showers.
Awesome hostel steps from the beach. The staff are loving and the hostel has all the facilities you would need. Even board games which kept us entertained for hours. Would definitely return.
Perfect stay, Great location, great management and staff (very welcoming), laid back atmosphere with plenty going on every night. Turns out its the only hostel actually in mission beach and have the perfect spot just 15 seconds walk to the beach and about a minute to any of the bars/restaurants/cafes. Super clean and tidy, the staff work very hard. Great facilities, Great pool/bbq area to chill in the sun. Beach bonfires/wine tasting/movie nights! and that was just in the days I stayed! ***** A+

Georgina the manager really takes care of you, staff are super helpfull, keen to get everyone involved and fun also. It's a 16 second walk to the beach... Need I say more, also super near the skydive centre! shuttle runs to woollies from the hostel so you can budget, or there are places to eat right next to it. pool has a waterfall, loads of wallabys around and cheeky geckos :) Me and my bf stayed in a double room, comfy and clean. Small, friendly hostel in a beautiful spot
Best hostel I have stayed in so far on my travels! Guaranteed 100 percent friendly service!

We were picked from our coach and Georgia booked us in, she was great and really helpful. The hostel had a quieter vibe to other hotels we had stayed at. We were a bit disappointed as each night there was an event that never actually happened. No movie night and no BBQ night. We planned to have our dinner that night but were unable to have anything as that was cancelled and all the restaurants in mission beach were closed. Overall it was a good stay as it was in a perfect location.
First of all: People go to Mission Beach for two things: Skydiving or Rafting. If you're not planning to do either of those then you might skip Mission altogether. But this is nothing the hostel can do anything about and they are good in advertising a lot of things to do else(where) and also are located directly at the beach, which is nice.
Nice hostel! Staff is very friendly and helpfull. Rooms were clean and there was enough space for your stuff.
