Stayed here for two nights but wish I stayed longer. The area is quiet but the beach is just down the road and the shops are near. The hostel had a nice relaxed atmosphere and was clean and tidy! Decent pool and kitchen facilities. Can't go wrong! Also free wifi! Definitely recommend!

Very clean and tidy place. Loved staying here was only a 5 minute walk to beach shops and bus stop. Only thing was we went in jelly fish season so couldn't go in the sea. Pool could do with coolers as the water was luke warm but very chilled and relaxed place. One of the Nicest hostels we've stayed in!!!

The hostel itself is really nice, if you just want a couple of days to chill. You can also do an amazing skydive at mission beach. The staff in the hostel is really nice too, and they make you feel like home. A perfect stay, if you just want to chill.

Living in Cairns I have been in Mission many times and absolutely love it. The town itself has so much to offer in terms of small local businesses, friendly people and just beauty all around! I loved our stay at Absolute and was so sad that we had to leave and would have loved to extend it if my friend... More

It was very quiet. Me and my friend were the only people on our room so we didn't meet any new people. The location was a 10 min drive from mission beach so it wasn't ideal. You have to get the bus into mission beach. Wifi wasn't great. Staff were friendly and the pool was nice to cool off in.... More

The night was terrible. The music was on ALL night, really, really loud, unacceptable high music was playing all night with people laughing loud in the background, partying and making noise. An unforgettable stay, yes, but not in a good way. To my big surprise it was not only other guests attending to this "party", it was staff member(s), and... More

Been to Mission a couple of times and the stay at Absolute was by far the best. Can't fault it. Great location, facilities etc etc. The staff were what made the 6th star. I've stayed in a lot of hostels around the world and the professionalism and dedication of the staff were second to none. They went well beyond needed... More
