One of the most friendly and helpful hostels ever, everyone is so welcoming and help, and on the beach pretty much. The staff make this place what it is Great.

My stay here was great. The hostel is in a fantastic location, pretty much right on Mission Beach (just a few seconds down a little garden path and you're on the beach.) There are a few lovely bars, shops and cafés next to it. The hostel is very pleasant with a nice homely feel. The place is kept clean and tidy, and the staff are helpful and make you feel welcome. I have now stayed here twice, and I would definitely stay here again. I would recommend it to anyone. :) :)

The hostel itself was lovely, very spacious, clean and amazing bathroom. However, felt very un-welcomed by other guests who temporarily lived there. Was a shame, ruined a perfectly good hostel.


Very friendly and helpful..


This is the best hostel ever!! The free bus picked me up from the greyhound stop and brought us to the centre of mission beach. 60 Seconds from the beach! The room was fantastic, the staff were great!!! The room was cheap and the bar down the road does $10 backpackers meals. I was given a free lift to Woolworths and we had a movie night, made some great friends with the staff and other backpackers. Was a great Atmosphere! Was so clean for a hostel!!

Nice place to stay. Beach is maybe 100 or 150 meters away. Big kitchen and a very cool pool.
