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.

Hey guys, Thank for the review - if you could drop us a review about the hostel that would be great as this is just about why people may come here. Mission Beach is visted yes by many who enjoy the thrill seeking moments but it is also Surrounded by World Heritage rainforest on one side and the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef on the other, Mission Beach is home to many wildlife species, including the infamous cassowary. - The are jets ski, blokarts, water taxis, kayaking and many more

Hey, thank you so much for your review, also great to have some feedback we really appreciate it. If you happen to come down again, just give us a call - we have some great beach cricket going on at the moment with the weather been so glorious. Was a pleasure to have you stay here with us.

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.

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!!
