Lovely bright friendly hostel. Open air kitchen and living space. 9 bed dorm was big, sharing one bathroom, clean and lots of space. LNo lockers though. Perfect location in Mission beach, 30 seconds from the beach. Lots of shuttle busses to and from Woolworths and greyhound/premier bus stop. 1 hour of free wifi. I enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend. The staff were very welcoming and friendly thanks for a nice 3 days


We only stayed one night, but the service was awesome! Super friendly and helpful. The room (9 dorm female) was very clean, we had an own bathroom and the sheets smelled fresh. Only a few meters to the beach, 14 mile beach, and less meters to the promenade with bars and restaurants. Nearly every hour drives a shuttle bus to the greyhound and premier station, next to Woolworth. The owner and the whole hostel felt like a big family.


really cool hostel, not that modern or clean, but such a cool vibe and literally 30m away from the beach!! would definitely come back


Amazing Location- 10 second walk from the beach. Perfect hostel for a chilled out few days, I had booked in for 2 days and ended up staying 5!


Staff and guests were so lovely an friendly and helpful. It's a super homely place with plenty to do.

Not a lot going on in mission beach in general it tends to be just where people go to sky dive. No atmosphere at all, although the staff do try. Kitchen was fine and it is right in front of the beach. They also came to pick me up from the bus terminal as part of the price and I wasn't expecting It.

Hi, Thanks for your feedback, its always appreciated as it lets us know what are guests are thinking and how we can improve. Im sad to hear you thought there was not much going on... We do have a lot of guests staying for their skydive (we are the best place to do it) but we also have the best whitewater rafting, kayaking, rainforest walks that start from the hostel door, reef trips, great bars and restaurants, 14km's of beach at our backdoor and now scuba diving! Enjoy your travels.


Great hostel location right in centre of mission beach. Lovely staff who organised a bbq while I was there and helped me book my sky dive. Facilities were clean. Good atmosphere, pretty chilled. Highly recommend this place of yore coming to mission beach

The kitchen had 4 cooking rings for the whole hostel so trying to cook an evening meal was difficult. Staff were friendly and helpful when booking tours.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us here at Mission Beach Retreat YHA. We do have 4 cooking rings on the cooker but we also have 2 more on top of the oven and 2 more on a stand alone base for this reason. Very sorry we did not give you this information upon check-in. Our reception is open 7.30-11.30 & 15.00-19.00 with staff around the hostel all day for inquiries such as this. Thanks again, Safe Travels MB Retreat YHA Managment
