This yha is excellent. Staff have been really helpful and willing to help out. Room was perfect, couldn't fault it. Great facilities, really nice communal chilling area. Parking out the back too which is ideal. Location is great, close to the beach and few bars. Lots to do if you want to do it. I'll be back for sure. Cheers... More

The hostel is small and you feel like being part of a family if staying here. You're going to the beach at night to make a campfire. Further there is not much to do in Mission Beach except skydiving. So don't stay here to long!

This hostel is great like a home away from home. The beds in the dorms were very comfortable and the air conditioning g gives you respite from the heat and humidity outside. There are two tv common areas and a large eating area and a kitchen which never seems too crowded. Staff are unbelievably helpful and go out of their... More

This was one of our favourite hostels in Australia, purely because the staff were so lovely and helpful. They really went above and beyond to make sure you had a good stay, and could arrange everything from trips to the shop, to greyhound pick-ups and local activities. There was a nice mixture of people staying at the hostel and we... More

Nice small YHA hostel about 1min walk to the huge long beach, an maybe a 5-10 min walk down it to reach the stinger netted area if you want to swim. The room we stayed in was small and simple but clean and had everything we needed. Kitchen and social area again small but loooads of games and dvds etc... More

Laid back and chilled. Very clean and air con works well. We stayed in a double room. Lovely bathroom facilities where the toilet and shower are in the one room that you can lock rather than other hostels that have a kind of school arrangement. Very good location for the beach and local bars and restaurants. Luke was very friendly... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a 4 bed dorm. The room was a comfortable size with air con, however the miss-match bedding made the rooms feel a bit shabby. The hostel is in a great location, with the beach and a number of bars and places to eat just a few seconds away. There were buses every day to... More
