    Really cool hostel, very relaxed atmosphere, very clean kitchen and rooms. Location is 15/20 min drive out of mission beach, so a car is a massive bonus but we just hitch hiked to town, never done it before but very normal in that town and a car stopped within 1 min every time!! Overall definitely worth a visit!

    Great Hostel! It‘s an amazing experience to stay in the middle of the rainforest. I arrived with the Greyhound and was worried about the accessibility because of some other reviews, but there‘s a shuttle and most times you can probably share it with other travellers. From Mission Beach Skydiving (which many people do at the hostel) it‘s a 1,5 hour hike to the hostel which is amazing as well. People at the hostel are super nice and you might even see a Cassawory. All in all great stay!

    Fab hostel, really enjoyed my stay. The vibe at Jackaroos was amazing. It is more remote than other hostels but totally worth it, a great little retreat. Only issue is that the wifi is a bit hit or miss, and if you have a Vodafone SIM card you don’t get any signal but the other networks are fine and this is nothing to do with the hostel just something to be aware of

    We loved our stay at Jackaroo. Such a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Really clean hostel and the host was great, offered us lifts into town etc. As everyone else has said it’s pretty far away from anything so definitely easier with a car but we got by okay without one. Would definitely come back.

    Loved my stay at Jackaroo - all facilities were clean and comfy and it’s such a beautiful area to stay in. I’d definitely recommend having a car as it is expensive to get taxis and takes a while to walk around. But that’s the area not the hostel. It’s also a short walk to the beach where there are amazing views!

    Robert was incredibly welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The building and grounds are lovely. Very clean. A 15 min walk to the nearest cafe, another 10 to the nearest beach. Be mindful it cost $35 by local private shuttle bus to get from the Greyhound bus stop in South Mission Beach to the hostel, but the driver was lovely. There are bikes to rent from town which is a great way to get around. Watch out for Cassowaries roaming the grounds in the morning for a beautiful photo op.

    The hostel itself is fantastic and Rob is a great guy. Always chatty and helpful and remembers all his guests by name. It is about a 20 minute walk to any sort of cafe and 30 minutes to the beach, but you are in the middle of the rainforest with some fantastic views. Kitchen is always kept spotless and the hostel has everything you could need. Kept pretty clean for somewhere in the middle of the rainforest! No bar or cafe at the moment so not as great an atmosphere as could be.

    Great hostel and one of my favourite I've stayed in. Pros: good atmosphere and cleanliness 20 minute walk to beach and cafe which are both lovely Cons: the bar is actually not open right now as they're undergoing renovation. This wasn't clear until we turned up. Technically as it is a licensed venue you're also not allowed to byob Cabbies charge 35 to 40 dollars from greyhound stop Hours away on foot from Woolies, other beaches, so must buy food before you arrive

    Pros: Beautiful hostel, feels like you’re in the jungle! Chill vibes, really clean and well ran. Lovely pool and clean, well equipped kitchen Cons: Accessibility. 2.5 hour walk from greyhound bus stop. No free shuttle. One provided cost $35. No bike hire from hostel, this might help with this issue. Seems a push to advertise it is in mission beach.
