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

Small hostel, not much to do, 1 night was enough for us would have been bored any longer. Wifi is expensive! It should be free as there is nothing else to do. It seemed fairly clean but there was an awful smell in our room, if we stayed any longer then a night then we would have asked to move. Location is good and pool was nice. Ok if your passing through but I would not stay here too long. Was expecting better from the reviews I read.

It's the only hostel "in the city". But to be honest there is nothing to do in mission beach, we just stayed there because of a skydive!

My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights, it's a really cool, chilled out hostel, positioned literally on the beach which is awesome. They also have two TV's which is great and the internet and kitchen are good as well. Would definitely recommend staying here if you to relax!

This hostel was great! I loved all the staff; they were all so friendly and fun. It was close to the beach which was nice, and the bar down the road has great food and drink deals. Definitely would stay here again

The kitchen was really pleasant and clean. the staff was cleaning all the time. it was quite cozy and little homelike. The bedroom was a little small for 8 people.

Nice hostel, almost on the beach. 9 person dorm was a bit messy, everybody has stuff everywhere (maybe to small), there was a strange molty smell in the room aswell, but for 2 nights we didn't bother. Door is always open and no lockers, you only need one crazy person and everything is gone. Manager is nice and really helpfull. Common room is nice.

Thanks for the feedback! Our 9-bed dorms do look a bit messy when they are full of people and their gear, but we've never had a complaint about the size before. We are a really chill hostel, never have anyone causing any problems. The only thing I've ever heard of being stolen was a bit of ham- which turned out to be on the "free shelf"! In 7 years, we've never had a "crazy person", but I imagine they'd ruin your day anywhere!

Great location with the beach only a minute walk away and close to the few restaurants Mission has. The aircon didn't work in our room but the awesome staff moved us to a cooler room straight away. Chilled out atmosphere and good facilities.

We have recently replaced almost every aircon unit, changing from window-mounted to wall-mounted units. Staying cool is the name of the game here at the retreat!

Nice little hostel, not in vicinity of woolworths and greyhound station, but they have a shuttle service. There's not much to do in mission beach, but this is a good place to relax. Nearby is the beach, a bar and beachwalk. The staff is really nice and helpful. If you're looking for a clean, chilled an nice place you're right at the YHA.

Nice place to stay. It's a small hostel and you get to know each other very easily. There are some nice bars where you also can meet locals.

Nice location by the beach and close to restaurants near by. Not enough restrooms though.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, i'm glad you appreciated our location, it really is a beautiful spot. Sorry to hear that you don't feel we have enough bathrooms. Whilst you were here we were working on another one which we have just opened and we now feel there are plenty available.
