We stayed in Mission Beach for two nights and this was the perfect place to stay. It was in close distance to the Greyhound bus stop, a local supermarket and a bistro/bar. Wongaling Beach was also only a short walk away. The hostel was clean and staff were very friendly. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again!

The only reason to go to mission beach as a backpacker is to skydive. Since it was raining the whole time for us this wasn't an option. This hostel was really close to the supermarket and had own kitchen. The TV room is amazing and you can watch loads of different films for free! My only issue was a few... More

I arrived at the hostel to be greeted by smiling, lovely Cindy. She was very kind as she offered to take me to Paronella Park for the night tour as I had inquired about it at booking. The hostel is bright, airy and clean. The bathrooms were very clean with soap and hand towel provided. You can burrow a towel... More

I've loved stayed here. Insanely clean, comfy beds, big kitchen always clean, relaxing swimming pool , big tv room, perfect location close to shops, bars and greyhound bus stop. Mission beach is the best spot if u are planning to do your skydive. The staff and managers were really kind and friendly. Lots of deal for trips in the rainforest... More

Absolute backpackers is a great place to chillout after a time of busy travels. The location is really good (5 minutes to the beach&less to supermarket), staff is superfriendly and help whenever you need advice about stuff to do. Kitchen and bathroom are really clean and the cosy tv room really makes you feel at home, as well as flowers... More

The weather was crap - nothing to do about that The Staff and Managers are Tops! We had a family style sit down dinner where everyone made and shared a dish - never felt so at home while travelling!! Kitchen is massive and clean - best place I have ever stayed

The most uncomfortable bed I've slept in at any hostel in 6 months travelling in Australia. The kitchen and toilets might have been very clean but were clearly compensating for the lack of anything to do. The staff were very pleasant, however the managers were rude, sarcastic, and the fake laughter from one of the managers was rather annoying to... More
