The hostel is located right across from the beach and also has a great pool surrounded by the rooms. Friendly and helpful staff, as well as a spacious kitchen. Regular lifts to the supermarket/town to catch the bus as well. Will stay at Scotty's again!

Generally as a rule, if you're unhappy with something let us know at the time and give people the opportunity to make it right. We bend over backwards to ensure a good experience here at Scotty's. Our pool pump broke down and had to be sent away for repairs. Your room should not have smelt and the fridge should have been cleaned that morning but we could have moved you straight to another room. Cockroaches are not uncommon here in the tropics and we have spray available at reception.

Great hostel, right by the beach and also has a pool, great chill out place. Rooms great value and not noisy at night. Loads of places to chill out and a couple of cats to make friends with! Staff very friendly and helpfully too! 10/10

Staff were really friendly and helpful. I would have felt safer is there were lockers available. Nice hostel to relax in and very close to the beach.

The only thing I missed was a lack of encouragement to recycle considering that everything else appears to be 'eco-friendly'.

Owner Comment (Hide)
The Cassowary Coast Regional Council do not offer re-cycling in Mission Beach so we can't really encourage it. If they did we certainly would! Thank you for your review Monika, happy travels :)

Hostel was really nice, you felt very welcome! Atmosphere was good, kitchen huge! The rooms were very small but all in all I had a good stay there! If you stop in Mission Beach you are probably planning on doing the Skydive, otherwise there is nothing really to do!

Well it's some kind of a partyhostel.. there were a lot of young people. There is not much around the hostel. The shuttle service is cool. It was all about having fun fun fun.. that was a bit annoying.. it doesn't mean that I don't have fun if I'm not partying all night ;) The woman at reception was a little bit weird.

Great pool, good atmosphere and value for money. The staff were very helpful - Mel in particular. There were lots of people who were staying there for work, which is good if you are planning to work as well as travel.

Great place, very friendly staff. Loved the restaurant close to the hotel. Liked the blanket at night. Internet bit expensive. Great location.

Only stayed one night. seemed like a good hostel. Wi-fi was really slow which made booking other hostels for our next destinations long and tedious. The place was a little hard to find @ night. Thus said, staff seemed great and the common area is definatly pretty sharp.

We just stayed one night but it seemed to be a pretty cool place to hangout. There are good deals in the restaurant next door to the hostel where you can try kangaroo steak for example. Attention drinks are really expansive there.

Attention - Despite the bar prices which we consider reasonable we do allow you to consume your own alcohol at the hostel, we do not force you to go to the bar!! :)

We were upgraded to a four bed dorm and it was fantastic. En-suite was hotel quality and the addition of a fridge and air-con were really nice touches. Mel on reception was excellent at advising us on local activities including booking us all on a skydive! Very helpful with booking our next accomodation and onward travel on the greyhound also.
