We stayed here for 2 nights to do the skydive on Mission Beach (which was excellent, I would highly recommend it). We stayed in a double room which was average size, clean with a comfortable bed. The hostel was quite clean with a decent sized kitchen that had everything you needed. The kitchen was open to the outdoors which is... More

Just stayed here for a couple of nights & the hostel is lovely. Very clean and comfy with good rooms & bathrooms. Not a very lively hostel so not much going on, but good to chill out. Only annoying thing is they charge $7 each for wifi for 2 days, but that links up to 3 different devices... Which we... More

pro: clean, just a few metres from the beach, good bathrooms, kitchen was ok, calm, good place to relax neg: there is a supermarket next door but it is very small and expensive- we walked to the big one in "town" which turned out to be a 1 and a half hours (one way) walk!

I've enjoyed returning to this hostel again and again each time I visit Mission Beach - I wouldn't stay anywhere else! It's always been fantastic but the recent addition of manager Georgia has injected even more welcomness into this already gorgeous place. Expect beach bonfires, friendly smiles and a warm feeling of happiness when you come to stay here. The... More

A group of four of us, came on the 15th November. From the beginning Luke the bus driver was very nice, then met George the manager and was so lovely and helped my friends with their skydives. Staff were ever so welcoming. It is also the cleanest hostel I have stayed in throughout Australia, very well run and an overall... More

My friend and I stayed in one of the big 9 bed dorms for 4 nights. We couldn't have been made to feel more welcome while we were there. The lovely staff collected us from the bus, waited while we went to the supermarket, invited us to the pub and on our last night, even invited us with them to... More

We stayed at this hostel for a few nights in a private double room. The room was good and comfortable and the shared bathrooms were clean. The kitchen was quite small but didn't seem to get too busy so it was okay. The hostel is right on the beach which is nice and close to cafés, bars and restaurants and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with a friend. We were in the large 9 bed mixed room which I was slightly concerned about initially as over half of the occupants also worked at the hostel. However, the people who worked at the hostel were so welcoming and interested in making us feel involved. We had a great time at... More

The hostel was really relaxed with nice common areas, nice atmosphere and friendly staff. It's really good that they organized the shuttle from Mission Beach to bus stop and supermarket so you don't have to spend all your saving on the smaller shop near by. Had really nice time :)
