Seriously. I had such a great time in this hostel, me and my boyfriend stayed for 4 days, apparently longer than most people do. The hostel is very quiet, but the atmosphere is always good and you can help yourself with as much free tea and coffee your body can take. Also the kitchen has BOTH a FREEZER and AN... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights in October 2014 and it is one of my favourite hostel dive ever stayed in. Staff were great, really friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond to ensure everyone was enjoying their stay. Hostel felt like a home away from home, felt like you were staying in someone's home rather than... More

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

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
