Stayed two nights and was very impressed after noting previous indifferent reviews. Reviews can be totally biased and deceitful which I don't take verbatim. On the first night I was fortunate in having a 9 bed dorm to myself and, even with being the sole occupant, the room and ablutions were cleaned immediately after 10am with the ablutions being cleaned...

It's a cute hostel, the older couple who were running it when we stayed were lovely, but seemed rather flustered and confused when we arrived. We had booked a double room but there was some mistake with our booking and we ended up in a very random room, with a window into the common area (bit strange). Think the rooms... More

I stayed 4 nights at the Mission Beach Retreat in a 9-share dorm. The size of the room was good and it was really bright. The kitchen&lounge area was all open plan and pretty cosy. Regarding the cleanliness the first impression wasn't the best unfortunately. My room was untidy (was in a room with some of the long term stays)... More

Stayed here for one night on travels south from Cairns to Airlie. Had the choice of a few hostels when we got off the coach but decided on the YHA. The hostel is without doubt in a great location, just a few mins walk to the quiet beach area. Unfortunately the kitchen was untidy and dirty. There was a number... More

Lovely hostel, close to the beach! Lots of different tours to do! Even get a free night if you book your skydive and a free t-shirt. Great value for money rooms and the staff are lovely, will go out of their way for you!

But luckily the staff where really apologetic and upgraded us to a double room. The hostel was not the cleanest but the staff where fairly friendly and the location was pretty good. The... More
