It was very clean and you get 2 decent pillows! Beach was a 2 min walk and its beautiful, lots of coconuts! Good breakfast... 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

Hostel was in a good location. It was small though and not much to do there, the Wi-Fi was really expensive. Booked a private room, there was an awful smell in there though, would have asked to move if we were there longer then a night.

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
