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

Thanks guys, we will be... 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!

Myself and a friend stayed here for two nights. The only problem we had was our booking was not taken down when we booked the previous week. 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

Hostel was small and cosy. We had a double room which was clean and comfortable (just a little dusty).Staff were very friendly and helpful! Mission Beach is small but a relaxing place to visit. A good selection of cafes and restaurants for such a small place. Zenbah offers $8 backpacker meals which I'd highly recommend - just let them know... More
