I stopped in this hostel for 2 nights. When I got there I had to clean the room, as the bin had not been emptied, the fridge still had food in it.. If u want a good WiFi connection.. Forget it..everyone has to sit huddled in the corner in a very warm kitchen! This hostel was a base for young... More

Slept at Scottys one night, the reception took our id as deposition and forgot to give it back to us when we left, so we had to drive 1.5 hours back to Scottys to come and get them again. At first the guy were on lunch break and didn't want to come back to open and hand us the cards,... More

Having got off the bus that morning I was greeted by a very rude manager who made it seem like anything she does was an effort. The showers are horrific that resemble a garden shed, whilst the wifi is free yet only works in tiny part and is very slow. Reception is meant to be open 7-7 yet they decided... More

Nice rooms with aircon and mini fridge. Decent pool with many chairs to lounge on. There are couches and chairs all around the deck of the hostel so there's plenty of places to sit, just put on some bug spray:) Kitchen is nice and big. Definitely a good hostel. Free wifi is absolute crap, that's why it's free! Got a... More

When I went to Mission Beach I was looking for a good quality but low budget hostel that was close to the bus drop off. It turned out that none in the area were actually close and the central bus station was in fact not at the beach Mission Beach but near Wongaling Beach. I needn’t have worried, though, since...

I had the great pleasure of working for my accommodation at Scotty's for a week and a bit over Christmas. All the staff and guests were lovely and easy-going. Even with all of the Christmas partying going on at the hostel, it was spotless the next day. It showed that they really take pride in the place and want people... More

I stayed in Scotty's for 3 nights after a much needed break after 3 nights at Cairns party hostel - Gilligans. It seems most people hold a similar itinery. The stay was one of my favourite parts of my trip to aus. The staff were so friendly and chilled - drinking goon with the customers till the early hours. There... More

Stayed here as a pit stop to Cairns. Very good stay! The pool is really good and the air con in the rooms, en suite and fridge in rooms is a good bonus. No hidden charges! Manager is helpful and full of advise on places to go. Would definitely stay again. Not much to do outside of hostel except sky... More

Stayed for a couple of nights and Jay welcomed us to the hostel, he's a really nice guy and helped us with all queries! However I was bitten quite badly by bed bugs which put a downer on our stay here! Can be quite noisy at night time. Has a good pool :)

Managed to book myself in by a referral of a friend who done there regional work here... So I changed my plans on how well the place was talked up. And heard it was family built and owned for 26 years. I arrived in mission back and was greeted by a smiley face called Vicky she was so cool and... More
